*Several videos has surface on line this morning showing a black protester at a Donald Trump rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina being punched in the face by a supporter as he was being escorted out of the building.
The victim, identified as Rakeem Jones by the Washington Post, is shown being escorted out of the rally by men wearing Cumberland County sheriff’s deputies’ uniforms.
Jones gave the middle finger to everyone as he was leaving, at which point a white man in a hat hit him in the face. Shockingly (but not really) it was Jones who was then wrestled to the ground by cops before continuing to be escorted out.
“It’s happening at all these rallies now and [the police are] letting it ride,” Jones told the Post. “The police jumped on me like I was the one swinging.”
“My eye still hurts,” he added. “It’s just shocking. The shock of it all is starting to set in. It’s like this dude really hit me and they let him get away with it. I was basically in police custody and got hit.”
