OWS Protester Assaults Man with Hammer, Striking Him in Head
Pundit Press ^ | 11/18/11 | Aurelius

Posted on 11/18/2011 11:40:43 AM PST by therightliveswithus

A man was rushed to Maine Medical Center's emergency room early Friday morning after an Occupy Wall Street protester struck him in the head with a hammer. The victim was in the hospital for several hours, was treated, and then released.

According to police, the assault happened after the victim was playing drums loudly at Occupy Maine. Chris Schisler, 34, took exception to the drums, approached the man, and, after a brief argument, hit him in the head with a hammer.

Witnesses stated that the man started playing drums at seven in the morning, waking fellow protesters up and demanding that they clean up the park they were in. Schisler became agitated and told him to stop. When the victim refused, Schisler first smashed his drum and then quickly struck him in the head.

Schisler was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. His bail is set at $10,000.

Boy, this is a “ jump ball”; I don’t know who to applaud here. The drummer wanted the place cleaned up and the guy with the hammer wanted the noise to stop. I guess like everyone else there, they both suck.

“victim started playing drums at 7 in the morning”. Hmmm, little hard for me to disagree with the perp on this! Though smashing his drums should have been enough.

Alot of folks have been asking if OWS has a clear message.
Perhaps this guy was ‘hammering out’ the details.

Or maybe he’s just learning guitar and wasn’t sure what the ‘hammer-on’ technique is.

Or maybe he’s a wrestling fan of Greg ‘The Hammer’ Valentine and he put the guy in the figure-four leg lock after he hit him with the hammer.

These are useless maggots that need to move to North Korea to enjoy the Marxism they so desire.

Try to protest over there, you will find out what a hammer is really about.

That would be an interesting counter-protest of the Obama Occupy crowd. Sneak into their camp at 5:30 in the a.m. and wake ‘em up not only with drums but a full marching band.

How about “Stars and Stripes Forever” by John Phillips Sousa?

Make sure to have non-musicians standing by to deal with the idiots who have a problem with it and might want to get violent.

ROFLMAO!

Could this be a way to disrupt the #occupy mvt from within? In every city show up @ 4 am with drums and play “bang on the drum” until they can’t stand it anymore, lash out, and get themselves arrested.

Sounds like more internecine fighting amongst the protestors, not an "innocent bystander" situation.
