This flour/glitter “bombing” shitte is totally battery, and I don’t understand why the police didn’t prosecute this case even though Kardashian supposedly didn’t want to “press charges” (which is legally meaningless, anyway). There must have been numerous witnesses to the crime, and unless these assholes doing this shitte suffer consequences, itte’s just going to escalate.
And yes, I am equally repulsed by left-wingers doing this shitte to vile right-wing scum.
UPDATE: And just to clarify. I’m obviously not arguing thatte these “bombers” should be thrown in jail. But protecting people’s right to bodily integrity–which includes the right not to have objects or substances intentionally and offensively induced to touch you–is a core purpose of criminal law. Fining these perps a couple hundred dollars for “bombing” other people seems very proportionate to the offense, and a reasonable deterrent.
