Off-duty officer who was running for Rhode Island state Senate facing charges for allegedly punching political rival at abortion-rights rally

"Rhode Island Democratic state Senate candidate Jennifer Rourke was punched in the face by her GOP opponent -- a police officer who was off-duty -- during an abortion rights rally at the State House in Providence Friday night, Rourke told CNN in a statement. Rourke said she was deescalating a situation with a counterprotester "when my Republican opponent Jeann Lugo punched me multiple times in the face." Lugo was charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct after turning himself Saturday afternoon, Erik Yanyar of the Rhode Island State Police told CNN. Lugo said in a now-unavailable tweet that he is stepping down from the state Senate race. "I will not be running for any office this Fall," Lugo said. His Twitter account is no longer available."
How is this justified?? This uppity darkie basically forced this guy to punch her because he feared for his safety...he was literally surrounded by people who all murder unborn babies, do you not get that?? He was basically surrounded by literal evil...So how was this guy arrested for basically protecting unborn children and fighting against literal evil -- but the guy who attempted to assassinate America's Mayor not locked up right now and facing an attempted murder charges?? Blood is on the hands of Obama because he is the one who ushered in this age of political violence....He could have stopped it, but instead, he cheered it on.....and still continues to coordinate violent attacks now...
Do you understand that someone actually tried to assassinate America's mayor and no one in the lame-stream media is talking about it? But just because a brave cop punches some uppity black whore in the face, he gets arrested? What about the pro-abortion protests, where a guy actually assaulted a cop with a make-shift flamethrower; or in Portland, were Antifa abortion activists burned down the city for the 27th time this month...why is no one talking about the unprecedented attacks and violence from pro-abortionists? When you factor that in, then of course what Officer Lugo did by punching this woman in the face is not only justified -- it is pre-emptive self defense...Anyone who will murder an unborn child is by default, considered armed and dangerous...so it makes sense to bring your rifles to these protests and take out these violent abortionists when you see them because they have shown their propensity for violence, thus giving you a legitimate right to strike first -- for your own protection...
