Pretty sickening allegation. If true, I would like to know who the individual who did this is and how they got into the convention ...

RNC Attendee Allegedly Threw Nuts At Black CNN Camerawoman, Said ‘This Is How We Feed Animals’
http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/08/cnn-republican-convention-black-camerawoman.php

Quote:
An attendee at the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Tuesday allegedly threw nuts at a black camerawoman working for CNN and said “This is how we feed animals” before being removed from the convention, a network official confirmed to TPM.

TPM SLIDESHOW: GOP Convention Gets Underway

The CNN official declined to confirm specific details of the incident to TPM but generally confirmed an account posted on Twitter by former MSNBC and Current anchor David Shuster: “GOP attendee ejected for throwing nuts at African American CNN camera woman + saying ‘This is how we feed animals.’”

It is not clear whether the alleged culprit was a delegate or attending the convention in some other capacity.

In a written statement, CNN addressed the matter but divulged few details: “CNN can confirm there was an incident directed at an employee inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum earlier this afternoon. CNN worked with convention officials to address this matter and will have no further comment.”

TPM’s calls to RNC and convention officials were not immediately returned.

That's horrible.

Hopefully, it wasn't a delegate, but someone who got in just to stir up some trouble and try to make Republicans look bad.

This is why I couldn't be a cop. These are the kind of people I would probably want to "rough up" a bit as I led them out : )

It looks like it might have been an alternative delegate. Unfortunately, the convention people did not take their names. The names of people who do things like this should be publicly disclosed and they should be forbidden from attending any party-related events or rallies at any point in the future.
