Stomping Suspect Says His Actions Were Misunderstood; Now Faces Charges (and death threats)
WKYT ^ | Tuesday, October 26, 2010 | Elizabeth Dorsett

Posted on 10/26/2010 7:22:05 PM PDT by kristinn

Police have summoned Tim Profitt to appear before a judge to face an assault charge after a scuffle was caught on tape outside the KET Studios in Lexington before Jack Conway and Rand Paul's debate Monday night.

Today, Profitt says he fears for his safety and has received numerous death threats after others have watched the incident on tape. He says his actions were misunderstood.

'I feared for his safety," Profitt explained.

In the video, it appears to some that 23-year-old Lauren Valle is wrestled down to the ground by Rand Paul Supporters and then stomped on.

But to Tim Profitt, the the situation is much different. He says what the video doesn't show is Valle's aggressive behavior. Profitt says she rushed Paul's car three different times; each time refusing to stop. He says at the time, he didn't know what she was trying to do.

"We thought she was a danger; we didn't know what she was doing."

Profitt explained that he used his foot to try and keep her down because he can't bend over because of back problems. He also says police were alerted to watch her before Paul arrived because people in the crown recognized her as someone who may try and pull a stunt.

Still no follow-up by the media on the Rand Paul supporter who had her foot in a surgical boot stomped on by a Jack Conway supporter.

Is this what it’s come to? One idiot stepping on another idiot’s head gets outed so what about another idiot who stepped on some other Person’s (idiot status unknown by me) broken foot?

We’re doomed.

There is no excuse for assaulting a woman. None whatsoever. The guy that stomped her head and the guy that took her down are both yellow cowards. If the woman was being aggressive, they should have turned and walked the other way rather than assault her. You never do that to a woman. Never. They’re cowards.

In the video it looked to me like he was pushing on her shoulder, and may have caught her head slightly, but unintentionally.

Ummm....I have to disagree. Women can be just as dangerous and aggressive as men. So Squeaky Fromme and her kind should be left alone till when...they hurt or kill someone?

Two words for you, friend: Squeaky Fromme.

Gerald Ford was very nearly a dead president, if she'd had the sense to chamber a round.

Wow, great minds think alike. I thought of Fromme immediately. If she had known that you have to operate the slide of a .45 auto in order to get a round into battery, Ford would have been a dead man.

Yet you seem to be willing to either: excuse her actions (more of which are coming out with time), or you are making a judgement without all of the facts.

As much of an excuse as Ford’s detail had for “assaulting” ‘Squeaky Fromm’? An apparent lunatic aggressively trying to get at Paul with what motive???? He also did not step on her head; he stepped on her shoulder... immobilizing her arm.

Where’s your You Tube video showing how smartly you walk away from a potential attacker attempting to assault you or your preferred candidate, Mistah G Man???

As Rush pointed out, he did NOT stomp on her head, he lightly, and with running shoes (not combat boots) stepped on her shoulder and pushed (not stomped) down on her shoulder for a second until letting up at the request of other conservatives present.

The left wing shows on MSNBC, are expressing outrage over her getting stomped on her head (a lie), though they apparently saw NOTHING wrong with a black conservative being beat down with fists by SEIU union thugs, and ALL of the other violence from left-wing nuts towards conservatives which we see on a REGULAR basis.

I also heard, on MSNBC, that this moonbat had a "confirmed concussion" from her encounter with Paul supporters.

MY ASS!

The idea that women can’t be deadly or aggressive is exactly the sort of blinkered thinking that got Lizzie Borden acquitted.

Without seeing or knowing what she did before hand, I would not make that judgment.

The more I learn of this the more it seems clear that she was hoping for something like this so she could make the tea party look bad. Straight out of the Alinsky playbook, I would say.

I am very skeptical of her and her story.

So you would have stood by and allowed Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme murder Gerald Ford, out of some misplaced sense of chivalry? Was the man who wrestled the gun away from her a vile coward?

This creature was charging at Rand Paul. She needed to be stopped like a the rabid dog she is.

How about you wait for obuma to come to your town, slip on a wig and burst out from a crowd holding a metal object and see what happens to you. The SS will take you down so fast, you’ll be lucky to only get your fat head stepped on.

There is no excuse for the behavior of this “activist”. Crowds of people are not to be played with, a stampede could have been caused by her aggressive actions. If she tried to rush the candidate, (recall Sirhan Sirhan), restraint is justified. If the crazies are allowed to take over, our politics could turn ugly fast.

Women can be just as dangerous and aggressive as men.”

I have to slightly disagree with you - women can be MORE dangerous then men. Most people don’t expect women to be dangerous so they have an edge up to begin with. The most vicious gang members are females. My daughter worked in a detention center for a while. After a week asked to be transferred from women’s side to men’s. Never talked much about it except to say that the women were less predictable, more vindictive and much more vicious.

I take it from your response that you’ve never had any protective detail training because if you would have you’d know that women are every bit as dangerous as men. When it comes to a person rushing toward a political candidate, gender makes no difference. As others have pointed out, Squeaky Fromme was stupid but very dangerous nonetheless.

I don’t know what the rest of the video shows, but the portion I saw on the local news tonight clearly showed the man PUSHED on her SHOULDER in what seemed like an effort to keep her down.

I’ve wrestled, played football, boxed, and been in a few fights - that man did NOT stomp on her head in the video I saw - it was a relatively mild, “stay in your place”, push on her shoulder.

Maybe a video forensics expert can prove it, although that would be buried by the media.

He didn’t step on her head. He was clearly pushing her down on the shoulder as she attempted to get up. Not that it was a great thing to do, but stomping on her head he did not.

Never is an absolute that should not me used in this case.I do believe the men here were way out of line but there is a time and a place. You may think in your world there is no place to hit a woman buut there are times it can be very necessary.Work in a correctional facility or on the road as a Police Officer or Deputy Sheriff with that chivalrous or naive attitude and it may get you seriously injured or killed.NO person has the right to batter another individual and not expect reprisal.

I really don't know what else to say to this except: Really?!?!?! THAT is your assessment?

You never do that to a woman. Never. The last time I checked there are plenty of women who have seriously hurt and/or killed people.

Walk the other way What in the world are you smoking?

He did NOT stomp her head!! His foot came down upon her shoulder and slid towards her head a little. Not excusing his behavior, but we need to stop parrotting the lib's assertion that that's what happened. It didn't!

Never. Even if a woman was about to shoot your in the head. Never.

I think we all get that you don’t do warm to woman generally but if you don’t accept that there might be some scenario, how ever far-fetched, that it might be necessary you have little credibility.

You’re not winning any awards for your honor here, and repeating “never” and taking shots at others upbringing kind of makes you sound like an ass.

P.S. There was no foot to the head...I guess if you somehow saw that I can understand why you are so set in your opinion, i.e. delusional.
