Thug Violently Sucker Punches Female Reporter During Charlottesville Mayhem [VIDEO]

Thug Violently Sucker Punches Female Reporter During Charlottesville Mayhem [VIDEO]

A political reporter for The Hill named Taylor Lorenz, got sucker punched in the face by a radical for recording the after-events of the white nationalist terrorist attack in Charlottesville, VA that killed one person. I think he injured nine, but a total of 35 were injured yesterday. Two police officers also died when the helicopter they were in crashed near the scene. She had identified herself as being with the press… after the thug punched her, he kicked her phone as well. The video is below. The incident occurs at the end of the video.

Lorenz watched the car attack yesterday… she was right there when it happened. When she got hit, she was recording both sides of the protesters and the police that were standing guard there right across from those with signs that said, “F**k the police!” She was live tweeting during all of this. I can’t tell if the guy who hit her is a white nationalist, or was with Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Probably a white nationalist, but I have no way of knowing. What kind of asshat hits a woman in the face like that? Just disgusting.

A political reporter for The Hill, Taylor Lorenz, was punched in the face as she was filming the aftermath of a vehicle running into a crowd of people in Charlottesville, Virginia.

…and being a reporter, she live-tweeted the whole thing.

Lorenz was at the intersection where the tragic incident took place and captured the carnage on film — there was one fatality. She continued to record as police and rescue workers arrived.

As Lorenz moved around to get a better angle of events taking place, a shirtless man suddenly screamed at her, “Stop the f**king recording!”

The same man, seen on the left in the screen grab above, then punched her in the face, she noted on Twitter:

As you can imagine, Lorenz was royally ticked off after being hit like that. She says she’s fine though. The guy evidently already had a rap sheet. The fascist thug who hit Lorenz, Jacob L. Smith, 21, of Louisa, Virginia, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault and battery. He already had a warrant out for his arrest. The guy is a real winner.

Lorenz originally spoke with two police officers who thought the guy driving got scared and it was an accident. The kicker is that neither of them were there or saw the attack. There is no way it was an accident. Fox News is also reporting it was pre-planned with other individuals. Whether that claim pans out or not, we’ll find out. Attorney General Jeff Sessions just opened up a civil rights case to investigate the events of yesterday. I’m sure they will ask Lorenz about her attacker and what she saw. This is far from over.
