There is one typo, the person covering her head was the victim. In each of the next two examples, the people harmed showed aggression toward the criminal.

Assault

Definition

The definition of assault varies by jurisdiction, but is generally defined as intentionally putting another person in reasonable apprehension of an imminent harmful or offensive contact. Physical injury is not required. 

Overview

Some jurisdictions label "assault" as "attempted battery." In tort law, assault is considered an intentional tort

"Apprehension"

In the context of assault, the victim's "apprehension" happens if the victim believes that the tortfeasor's conduct will result in imminent harmful or offensive contact unless it is prevented.

It is not necessary that the victim believes the conduct will be effective in making such contact, only that the victim believes the conduct is capable of making such contact.

Assault and Battery

In an act of physical violence by one person against another, "assault" is usually paired with battery. In an act of physical violence, assault refers to the act which causes the victim to apprehend imminent physical harm, while battery refers to the actual act causing the physical harm. 

Aggravated Assault

Aggravated assault refers to an assault with an additional aggravating circumstance. As such, the liability and sentencing for aggravated assault is generally more severe than that for an ordinary assault. 

Prima Facie 

The prima facie case for "assault" has 3 components:

  1. The defendant acts
  2. The defendant intends to cause the victim to apprehend imminent harmful contact from the defendant
  3. The defendant's action causes the victim to reasonably apprehend such a contact

Our culture allowed it all last year, so we shouldn’t be surprised.  Have “we” allowed it?

It shouldn't be allowed at all.

Those who commit assault (regardless of type) should be arrested and tried by a court of law.

Assault is assault is assault and is illegal. It should never be allowed!

And yet if someone assaults during a peaceful protest, they might be arrested but they might not.  They might stay in jail but they might not.  People from January 6th may still be in jail and have lost their rights.  People from other protests were mostly all released.

The sad liberal double standard... they've politicized our Justice system as well!

But yet We The People don't stand up against it!

ROFLMAO...

Thanks for the laugh.

I consider this funny because Pelosi was in charge of House security when they were caught. Pelosi worked with DC police and had them put in solitary confinement.

At the time, all the rioters were supposedly Republican protestors.

Warren, the ACLU nor the Democrats give a rats arse about any Republican for any reason. But now they're calling for leniency!

Do you know why?

Well, basically, 90% or more of those arrested were actually democrat operatives dressing up like Trump supporters. So those still in solitary confinement are also many liberal democrats as well.

Otherwise, Warren, the ACLU nor the Democrats give a rats arse about any Republican for any reason, but they seem to... only because they're not turning a soft eye towards Republicans, but they're looking for leniency for their own operatives!

And that's what I had a good laugh about. They should talk to their own Pelosi who put them in solitary confinement in the first place mistakenly thinking they were all Republicans.
