They don’t have a mugshot of the attacker yet, but when they do, it’ll be another item to add to the Unhinged mugshot collection. Yeah, it’s getting crowded.
Via the NYPost:
A man heckling First Lady Laura Bush and daughter Jenna outside the 92nd Street Y was arrested after he punched a wheelchair-bound girl whose parents has told him to shut up, authorities said yesterday. German Talis, 22, was shouting obscenities at the Bushes, who were leaving the building Tuesday, when he crossed paths with Wendy and John Lovetro and their daughter Maureen, 18, who has cerebral palsy.
They had been in the audience to hear the Bushes talk about their children’s book, “Read All About It.”
“He began yelling about Iraq and Iran at Jenna Bush. She was waving at the crowd. I told the guy, ‘What are you doing? Shut up. This is about a child and books,’ ” said John Lovetro. “He was unperturbed. I said, ‘Get out of here! You’re being a moron!’ ”
The next thing he knew, Talis was allegedly punching Maureen – a fan of the first lady since meeting her in 2004.
“I heard my daughter hysterical yelling, ‘He’s hitting me!’ ” said Wendy Lovetro.
“He punched her on the shoulder blades, but that wasn’t enough,” she said.
“My husband pushed the wheelchair away from him and he reached beyond my husband and began pounding my daughter in the thigh.”
I expect Linn Benton Community College will offer Talis a full scholarship ASAP.
Several readers send video from the “We Are Change” site. These left-wing, Truther agitators claim that the Lovetros attacked one of their loons, whom they identity as “Gary.”
Arraignment is scheduled for tomorrow.
This group seems to be able to make quite a nice living as professional disrupters. Wonder who funds them?
Here’s a lovely group portrait:
