LEIMERT PARK (CBSLA.com) — A CBS2/KCAL9 photographer and reporter were assaulted Monday night while covering a George Zimmerman protest in Crenshaw.

Reporter Dave Bryan was conducting an interview around 10 p.m. when the suspect tackled him and his photographer, the station confirmed.

“All of the sudden, this guy came up from behind, he had a hood, and he knocked David on the head and he pushed the camera guy down. The camera guy went down, the camera went down, David went down,” witness Joseph Deguerre, said. “I was in shock.”

The suspect then fled the scene and the crew was treated for minor injuries, the station added.

The attack was under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.

“To attack a news reporter when he’s getting an interview? That’s just crazy,” Deguerre, 43, said.

Fourteen people were arrested during Monday night’s protest.

Erroneous report. He had a hoodie. Probably has a photo of himself at age 13 somewhere as well.

As opposed to "attacking" anyone else at any other time, which is what - understandable?

Climb off your high horse, idiot.

No not crazy at all, it’s all part of the plan. Exacerbate the fear and tension until all hell breaks loose. Then sell lots of advertising time.

Hey moron, it’s not crazy. You don’t live in a world where you gin up racism and travel through it immune because you’re it’s author.

You live in one where the ferals you create often slip their collars and go wide off script.

Congrats.

Typical elitist response. Can't you just hear the whine and tisking. Serves them right, look at what they created by making this case based on race.

90% chance these reporters were obama voters.

They obviously bought the Obama-Holder special racial sauce.

therefore, I do not care.

Arrest them all.....the camera guy AND David. They were clearly being provocative.

Good thing neither had a gun or we might be going through this thing all over again.

Sen. Robert Byrd (D-KKK) used to wear a hood.

All these white people don’t seem to know they are to remain indoors and behind locked doors at night so the reparation feral crowd can roam freely. Shame on the police for arresting those 14 righteous protesters. Welcome to “Eric Holder’s people” America, now let the justice for trayvon people collect their free stuff.

The reporter, Dave Bryan, is a known leftist, but even I wouldn’t wish this upon him..I wonder if he learned a valuable lesson, being attacked by his own lefty base..a dude wearing a hoodie..but hey of course the only way to get justice for Trayvon is by smacking a reporter over the head with a camera..and the stupid local media here STILL calls this a protest..one of their own almost gets killed last night and they STILL refuse to call these barbarians what they are

The shock was because he thought his bleeding liberal heart insulated him from attack by blacks.

To be fair, Dave Bryan was pretty aggressive with all the whiteness there.

He was kind of asking for it.

The media being attacked by the monster it created with its false reporting of the Martin-Zimmerman incident. Seems appropriate.

The beauty of liberalism. As Rush said a while back, and correctly, libs make TV shows with leftist presidents during ‘real’ Repub presidencies because they think that imagination equals reality (paraphrased).

Likewise, the left created a coexist kumbaya mental illusion their members worship as gospel. When reality hits hard and from behind, they are cannot accept it as it is not possible. Thus the search for ‘answers’ and scapegoats begins.

Leimert Park is the cultural center of da African American community in Los Angeles. I am shocked, shocked that this type of incident could happen there. /s BTW, it was a great neighborhood back in the 1950’s.

Actually, getting out of the car and following these guys, that was profiling and murder of an innocent black child.

I'm surprised the reporter and photographer haven't been arrested yet. What is it going to take to get justice here?
