Another day… Another violent attack by unhinged leftists… This time FOX News reporters were the target.

FOX News reporters were assaulted by a violent mob in California while they were reporting on a shooting. The NY Daily News reported:

An angry mob attacked a reporter and a photojournalist Sunday, but it wasn’t in the Middle East, it was in California.

The journalists were hit and pushed by family and friends of a young man who had been gunned down the night before outside an International House of Pancakes restaurant in Sacramento.

FOX 40 News reporter John Lobertini and his cameraperson, Rebecca Little, were assaulted after approaching a group of people standing near a memorial for 27-year-old Chester Jackson set up on the sidewalk outside the restaurant.

“This is one of the hazards of the business, but I’ve gotta tell you we didn’t expect what we encountered here,” Lobertini said during his broadcast after the attack.

Several local news outlets were present at the time and captured the incident on video from different points of view.

Frankly I’m not gonna sound like the people on the comments sections, because if some newsslime people showed up at a funeral in my family they would have gotten their asses kicked too.

Can someone please call on those two “so-called” reverends. I can’t remember their names. *sarc*

After all, this appears to be a hate crime on “white” people.

You might want that post back. Maybe they are not ivy league elites, but they deserve a little bit of privacy from the vermin media.

Please please let the police arrest these people. I guess they never heard of freedom of speech, or maybe it only applies to them. It was a public area, no expectation of provacy
Not to be callous but I did like the dude slurping his big bulp and watching. Yea sure he was grieving.

TV reporters can be real pushy a$$hats. About 6 years ago my area was undermined by a long wall coal maine. The ground was rolling and houses were cracking. The local TV reporters were all over like wolves. I threw two jerks off my property. I can see where these folks are coming from.

I knew there were parts of Sacramento you don't want to go to at night but I didn't know there were parts you didn't want to go to during the day.

Oh, wait. Yes I did.

It was not a private memorial, it was a public area and they were NOT sticking anything into anyone’s face.

If you have a memorial on the street, you are attracting attention from the public and the media. At the same time, journalists need to show a little respect to those mourning a murder victim.

This is directly Obama’s (and the Dems) fault.

I don’t normally finger-point blame like that, but they have been active in their efforts to “tar” Fox - even from the WH Press room itself. You don’t see this type of violence aimed at other networks and it’s not a coincidence.

Sacramento has been steadily sinking into the gang quicksand since the mid-90’s.

Would not go there for any reason & I lived about 45 miles from there. Old Sacramento used to be a fun place to go shop & eat.

The kid was gunned down the day before, the crowd on hand was there for one purpose only and that was to get their faces on camera knowing full well crews would be on site........

If a member of my family were "gunned down" we'd either be at the hospital or one of our houses inside mourning in private. We certainly wouldn't be hanging around where the crime occured.......I guess my family is just different than everyone elses.......

Look for many, many more of these types of events. Leftist are deranged sickos that adore preversion, but at their core they are cowards.

It is real easy to fix if we only have the courage.

I watched the video. To give credit, there were at lest too large African-American men restraining and pulling the lighter-skinned women away from the reporters. Did you watch the video?

About 10 years ago the owner of the business next door to mine shot and killed a couple of his employees, jumped in his car and tore off through our back yard to evade police. It was a big deal at the time, there were news trucks and helicopters all over the place that day.

I was standing outside watching while family members rushed by looking for their loved ones, it was chaos. I still remember the reporters and camera crews chasing after a woman who’s mother was just killed to be there when she got the news, and shoved a camera in her face while a friend told her that her mother had just been murdered.

I lost a whole lot of sympathy for them when they get their asses kicked after what I saw that day. I know they are just doing their job, but after being there and watching them trying to catch as much drama and sorrow as they could I can see why someone would snap and open a can of whoop-ass on them from time to time.

No one is talking funeral here.

...approaching a group of people standing near a memorial for 27-year-old Chester Jackson set up on the sidewalk outside the restaurant.

The reporters were on a public sidewalk.

I wouldn’t strike a reporter, but in the same situation, I may “escort” them out, may even let their feet touch the ground while I was doing it, if I were in a good mood.

“I can see where these folks are coming from.”

Your ‘seeing where these [those] folks come from” does not give them the right to assault them. They should do 2-5 years!

If you think IHOPs are bad, search on “Chuck E. Cheese fight” at YouTube.

I think all the screaming kids put people right up to the edge, and the audio-animatronic animal “performers” push them over. ;-P
