Watch What Happens After Husband Chases Down Hong Kong National Who Punched His Wife, 78,
http://www.theblaze.com ^ | august 23, 2013 | Dave Urbanski

Posted on 08/25/2013 1:01:37 PM PDT by lowbridge

Think it’s odd that a 30-year-old male Hong Kong national punched a 78-year-old female abortion protestor in the back, then calmly walked down the street without uttering a word?

Just wait until you watch the video of what happened after the assault in Iowa City.

But first, let’s review what we know so far.

Man Chun John Ma stands 6-feet 1-inches and weighs 200 pounds, hails from Hong Kong, and is a graduate student in the genetics program at the University of Iowa.

According to Donna Holman, she was holding an anti-abortion sign near a Planned Parenthood office on Wednesday morning when the man approached her from behind and struck her in the shoulder.

The blow knocked her forward, Holman said, causing her to drop literature she’d been holding, and Ma continued walking down the street, never saying a thing.

Holman immediately activated her walkie-talkie and called her husband Dan, who was protesting about two blocks away. Dan Holman turned on his video camera and tracked down Ma, filming his verbal confrontation with the remarkably placid perp until police arrived.

When a winded Holman asks Ma if he hit is wife, Ma replies on camera, “Sorry about that…I know I’m in trouble.” Later he admits to the arresting officer, “I did punch her…that was probably wrong.”

If it’s okay to murder babies, why shouldn’t it be okay to beat up little old ladies?

Isn’t it interesting that those who demand abortion weren’t aborted themselves.

I am surprised that Ma was arrested. Will he get a phone call from Obama expressing his support?

Obviously, he acted like a jerk by punching her. However, given today's diminished standards, it's refreshing to hear that the guy admitted his guilt instead of stonewalling. He could have said he never laid a hand on her and accused them of being racist for suggesting that he did, and it would literally have become he said, she said.

“People have beat on us, dumped water on us, slashed our signs with knives,” Dan Holman told TheBlaze, adding that their foes “think nothing of hurting a stranger.”

Exactly! Why should anyone who would drill a hole in a baby’s skull, suck out the brain, burn the body with a salt solution and dismember the baby have any compunction about hitting an older woman.

They are evil, soulless creatures who have no place in a civilized society.

Hey officer, it isn't your job to comment on the this lady's sign or the content of her protest. We don't care what you think. Your job is to enforce the law in a professional manner. Period.

Hope he receives a bit of counseling as to what is appropriate when doing his job.

No they don’t. Don’t be ridiculous.

The study of genetics does not require dead babies or aborted children.

He punched the woman because he is has been indoctrinated by the left and as a result has become a common, garden variety butthole. Or maybe he was born a butthole.

His field of study has nothing to do with it.

Holman did the right thing. No point getting brought up on charges. Besides, this was a purely gratuitous punch meant to annoy, not a game of Knockout King. This is why the perp was booked on a misdemeanor assault charge rather than ag assault. Of course, if this were to be settled without any taxpayer expense (i.e. resort to the court system), I'd agree that one to the perp's groin is an appropriate resolution. Heck, given the kind of trouble he's in (potential misdemeanor conviction), I think he'd grit his teeth and brace for a kick in the nuts, if that would erase all the follow-on repercussions.

It seems this guy comes from China. It would not be unusual for him to dislike pro-lifers. He may have never seen a pro-lifer over there. All of the pro-lifers have succumbed to the one child policy and have been have all been aborted.
Libs can’t wait to enforce the Chinee policy over here. But only on over privileged whites.

Being from Hong Kong, he'd have no personal experience of Chinese cops.

If it would have been a black perp Holman would never caught up with him, howver on the off chance that he did he would have received a cracka beatdown or shot.

The mans wife was 78, so he was likely the same or older. It would have been extremely stupid for an average old man to try kicking a 30 year old anywhere.

I know several high ranking black belts in their late 50's or early 60's who could get away with it, but the average Joe should not get physical with a young man.

That's why there are Glocks.

I understand your sarcasm and I agree with you but after watching that entire stupid video of shaking buildings and the final argument with the cop at the end, I didn't see where any little old lady was beaten up. Did I miss something?

serious misdemeanor count of assault causing bodily injury
Ah, what are the other degrees of assault, like - not not so serious; a little serious; really, really serious, etc?

My take is that Holman should have shut up after the 15th minute as the cop was already explaining that he agreed with Holman’s beliefs but Holman kept reiterating his politics repeatedly as I watched the entire video. I think the cop got it but was in a bind.

Holman got what was correct: the Chinese guy is going to jail over the assault. Case closed. Holman should have asked the cop “where do i file a police report?” You’d think someone who claims he and his wife whose signs were cut and were doused with water’ (based on their experience) should have learned how to deal with the repercussions should know the next step but he kept going on and on about the babies etc.

The brainwashed Useful Idiot cop is “offended” because he doesn’t understand why the picture of the cut up baby “offends” him.If he had free thought he would understand that it is WRONG and MURDER to kill the unborn or after born. Way back THEY said that they would only get rid of “a few cells” that weren’t even alive or humn yet. THEY wouldNEVER kill a WHOLE LIVING BABAY”. Well, THEY LIED! It was only a trick to destroy America through making us immoral Murder Machine Monsters, OF OUR OWN.

Yes. The article starts:

That part may not have been filmed.

This happened to someone in 2008 who refused to sign a petition in favor of BO at some card table outside a grocery store.

Let the university leadership know that Mr Ma's presence represents a threat to the peace and security of the community—people who will assault 78 year old women in the street are capable of far greater outrages. She should dismiss him from the university. I wrote the university president sally-mason@uiowa.edu.

The entire video was 15 mins. Holman did not talk to to the cop for that length of time.

All he kept asking was why the guy did it, only speaking to the cop for a few minutes.

The cop said "You know why he did it, he didn't like the sign. I don't like the sign. You were trying to provoke a response like this." (Not exact but close).

He did not, up to that say that he agreed with them at all and Holman didn't bring up abortion at all that I recall, up to that point.

I stopped watching at that point as I had a call at work.

“Holman didn’t bring up abortion at all that I recall, up to that point.”

He did..repeatedly, even saying “what do you think about the unborn babies” to the cop, whom by voice alone, was getting irritated. The video is one long one that should have ended with the cop doing his job after he took the Chi dude’s ID. Why Holman asked the Chi guy why he did it was the one that prolonged the video.

Funny how you couldn’t back up your crap. Like c’mon dude, it’s MORE than 2 minutes long LOL

Check out the 9th minute when Holman starts bitching about “murdered babies” and the cop is frustrated. At the 8 minutes 30 second mark, he then plugs in the “china one child policy”.

Dude, seriously you’re out witted here.

I’m a Hollywood producer ans script supervisor who can spot weak lines in a script that’s 500 pages long and I can ABSOLUTELY speed-read that 500 pages in 20 minutes. TWO of my movies are in the top 15 box office right now. Viewing a 15 minute video and grabbing the best details is like breathing air for me.

Hey Max. I believe it. You got a skill there. Me, I have little patience with most videos. I tend to skip threads that are mostly about a video and not about text.

Now what are you going to use it for. “Yes you did! No you didn’t!” wrangling, or some way to make peace. Once we are drilled down to the facts then I think we all agree that we’re entitled to our own opinions but not our own facts. A little being gracious goes a long way....

We may be talking at cross purposes. Up until 2:29 the only mention of abortion was Holman, answering a question by the 911 operator, mentioning a sign she was carrying

Holman keeps asking why the guy struck his wife and the cop was way out of line, which was my original post.

He said (paraphrase)"He was extremely offended by the sign. I was offended by the sign. You were trying to provoke a reaction like this."

Wow! I'm so impressed. Really I am. You just made my skin crawl and the hair stand up on the back of my from 3000 miles away.

I have more respect for the gentleman that cleans out my septic tank than than I have for anyone that has anything to do with the open sewer called Hollywood.

I also acknowledge his logic and reason which you seem to lack.

As you can see by my previous post, written before I read your last one, I was attempting to have a reasoned discussion with a reasonable person.

Obviously that is not the case. If you feel so inclined please read my original post and subsequent argument.

If you'll excuse me I must go and shower after this encounter.
