Charges Not Dismissed Against Kentucky Headstomper

Charges Not Dismissed Against Kentucky Headstomper

The former Rand Paul campaign coordinator accused of stomping on the head of an anti-Paul activist last year will be heading to trial this June, after a judge refused his request to dismiss the assault charges filed against him.

Tim Profitt, who was caught on video stomping on activist Lauren Valle’s head before a senate debate, had asked for the charges to be dismissed, saying that the force was justified in his attempt to protect then candidate Paul.

The judge, however, did not agree.  Via the Evansville Courier & Press:

Fayette County District Judge Kim Wilkie said in court Tuesday that he based his decision on a video of the incident that showed Tim Profitt stepping on activist Lauren Valle after an October Senate debate. The video was widely circulated on news stations.

If Profitt is found guilty, he could be fined $500 and serve up to one year of jail time.

James by the way aborted babies are used to make up a majority of vaccines by using the cell tissue from the aborted fetuses. So all you anti- abortionists if you and your children are vaccinated you are even more guilty of killing for your own survival babies!

I've been stomped before and it's nothing to trivialize.
It should really be attempted murder because when it happened to me, I actually barely survived.
There is nothing more cheap you can do in a fight short of kicking someone in the nuts.

There was a map in the New York Times, Sundy, March 6, 2011 with a color map showing the 50 states called the National Well-Being Landscape. When you compare that map with a map of the red and blue states from Wikopedia, except for Utah, Wyoming, Oklahoma, two thirds of Kansas, half of Idaho and half of Texas, every red Republican state was between the middle fifth to the bottom fifth (national average to worst off).

The Wikopedia map can be found at

A look at the states with Republicans in Governor’s offices as of January 2011 follows similarly but the states of North Dakota and South Dakota fare better. Those two states are not traditionally Republican and maybe those new Republican governors still need to work their magic.

Most of the southern red states were in the next to bottom fifth or bottom fifth. Oddly enough that includes the gulf coast Republican states affected by the BP oil spill.

Go Republicans!!! DRILL BABY DRILL!!!

For a world look, you can go to Time Magazine, p.30 and 31 to find a world map grading prosperity in the countries of the world. Rated number 1, 2, and 3 are Norway, Denmark and Finland. You know those socialized medicine and pinko socialistic countries.

Now I am sure the Republicans will consider the sources far left liberal. Anything left of Mein Kampf usually is. Maybe they can get better numbers from corporate reports.

James is a great example of the anti-choice crowd; pretending to care for children but just fine with women getting stomped.

Mike S, since abortions kill 2000 female humans a day, isn't limiting that carnage helping women?

And why should taxpayers foot the bill for womens medical services?

Glad to hear it. Proffit had seen the woman at previous rallies, so he already knew she was no threat.
Her sign "RepubliCorp" completely describes the direction Republicans want to take this country; into a patchwork of corporate fiefdoms.

good deal

What is so suprising about Republican MEN attacking and hurting women...they do it everyday...usually they do it with laws...such as limiting abortion rights, taking away medical services, requiring women to buy rape evidence kits, etc...
IT is the Republican way to keep women in their place.

It's a miracle. Usually the get away with what ever the want.

Elizabeth K, you are mistaken, the video of her assaulting Rand Paul through the car window is there if you look.

Of course since liberals are vested in this nutcase woman, they'll make excuses that her assault against Rand was "not that bad".

But remember who this woman is, a paid agitator with felony charges pending. The more I find out about her the more disgusted I am with the left and these reichstag fire tactics.

Sometimes I think, when mankind want to see demons they only need to find a mirror.

Old article but still maddening and this sort of thing is still going on. Our animals, no, ALL animals…

In many subtle areas our freedom is limited. Sadly, this is one of them.
