NY-26 Candidate Jack Davis assaults cameraman

This can’t be good for Jack Davis’ campaign to get elected in the special election in NY-26. Moe Lane says this should prove once and for all that Jack Davis is a Democrat and not a legitimate Tea Party candidate:

I saw that video and anyone with any type of sense would have the police there arresting those two jerks for assult and battery.  Maybe we are not seeing everything.

He starts out by saying, “Hey…You want punched out?” So the reporter was obviously harassing him and maybe even threatening him prior to this. For all we know, the reporter had a baseball bat in his other hand… That’s why in court they want the WHOLE TRUTH…

If you punched everyone who harassed you, you’d be spending alot of time in jail. What is fair and what is legal don’t often go hand-in-hand.

Truth is we have no idea what was actually happening up until the smack to the camera.  Just as Josh here says…the reporter could’ve been getting up in his face.  He might have even grabbed the guy’s jacket as close as he was for all we know.  Point is that if you want to make someone look bad…at least keep more of the tape that shows that you weren’t somehow responsible for the action the other person took.

I don’t believe the comments to this video.

Is there no conservative blog on the internet where we won’t have to read liberal/libertarian bullsh*t?

First of all…what are you talking about? Seems like some of these people are all for arresting this guy for the “assault.”

Second…how is it “liberal/libertarian” to wonder why there was tape left out and wonder if there was potential provocation which could have lead to anyone regardless of party to be a bit angry at the guy who won’t leave them alone?

Don’t lump me in with liberals just because I think pot should be legal.

Why do I keep seeing assaults on reporters and not hear of charges being pressed? Why does the intro to this video clip say, “this should prove once and for all that Jack Davis is a Democrat and not a legitimate Tea Party candidate”? Has the Tea Party nothing to sat about whether a candidate is a member of the Tea Party or not? It sounds as if there was some question before this incident. Why? This evil jerk was laughing. He had a thug “bodyguard” with him who also assaulted the reporter. Why weren’t charges pressed? Was there provocation which was edited out? If you want me to trust you, show me that you’re legit. Don’t show me what may be partial evidence and not press charges when assaulted. I want to believe that the incident was clean reporting, but this is not a good time in history to… Read more »

Exactly. There’s a reason why this is only 15 seconds long. It looked like a pretty long walk from the place to the car. There’s clearly more left out.

Who screams Aaaahhh! and then continues with the same question? This seems a little fishy. Not to mention, he never takes the camera off of Davis and points it at the guy tackling him…

I believe the reason this clip is only 15 seconds long is because there was a lot more going on leading up to this point which would show just what the true intentions of the camera man really were.

Sunlight. The best disinfectant. If the Tea Party is so irrelevant and racist and so on and so forth why try and jump on the bandwagon? We know the answer and we’ve got your number.

Clicking various links related to this story finally ends up at WBKW (Channel 7 in what appears to be Buffalo, NY), where they report slightly more deeply on the incident.

More proof of what I was saying to begin with. It’s all suspect. It’s also more proof to me that someone with an R in front of their name doesn’t necessarily mean they’re good people. Unless some real filth that’s not set up comes out…I’d like to see this dude win just to show these insiders what’s up.

I agree with Tyler. +Cameraman-reporter’s responses to alleged attack sound fake.

Oh…not to mention the cameraman’s laughing. If he were really “being assaulted,” then he wouldn’t be laughing.

The camera man isn’t laughing, the old man fake politiccian is laughing. Watch the tape again…sheesh.

My bad…the camera guy’s just a pantywaist then. “He smacked the camera…assault.” C’mon now.

It is illegal to “smack” someone’s camera. Ask Kayne about that one.

If someone’s harassing you, you have every right to defend yourself.  I don’t have to see the stuff prior to know that this dude was purposefully trying to get something out of this candidate and make it look like he was some kind of “hateful, reporter-smacking goon.”

Cameraman laughing? What video were you watching? It was clearly Davis that was laughing. And it’s clearly assault regardless of who the cameraman is.

Who’s the “reporter” and where’s some more tape? How do we know this isn’t some random guy with a camera harassing this dude (who might not even be the right guy)? I have no intention on defending a candidate of any type, but this just doesn’t look real and if it is…looks all too set up.

Hey, you should be hailing him. He’s the only [would-be] politician who actually has the honesty to do with his own hands what all the other want to do with legislation to media and the rest of us.

Hey, Dan,

Just wanted to let you know I’m sorry I didn’t reply to your posts last night. Things got kind of busy & I just didn’t have the free time.

Will keep an eye on your posts. Meantime, get ready for the consevative/libertarian alliance in 2012. =)

It’s all good, life happens. I’m just waiting for the summer semester to begin so I’m going stir crazy in general. razz

I’m in a wait & see posture about that alliance, it’s tentative, a fragile “agree to disagree.” I wouldn’t be surprised if Santorum does his best to pick at the “social issues” hole between Conservatives and Libertarians to carve out a niche for himself. It can still fly apart at the patchwork seams.

I’m optimistic that though Santorum will try…that the people will be more awake than that. You’ll have your old guards get behind him 100%…but their numbers are dying and I can’t wait for them all to stop hindering real progress towards freedom.

Since you showed the pure evil side of the coin…I had to flip it with the opposite side of the coin…the one and only one who remains constant.

Jack Hunter is great, I love seeing a new video from him in my “subscriptions” on youtube.

He was just recently on Antiwar Radio (Austro-Libertarian Antiwar.com was started under Clinton in response to his interventions.
