Epoch Times:

A bodyguard for April Ryan, a political analyst for CNN, has been charged with harassment, assault, and theft after he was caught on camera taking a journalist’s equipment and appearing to strike the journalist.

Charlie Kratovil with New Brunswick Today was at an event in New Jersey on Aug. 3 where Ryan was speaking. He has shown emails that indicate he was approved to cover the event.

Kratovil said that a man approached him as Ryan was being introduced and asked: “Who are you with?” Video footage showed the man, later identified as Ryan’s bodyguard, Joel Morris, approach Ryan and then come back and take Kratovil’s camera. Another video appeared to show him assault Kratovil.

According to a criminal complaint obtained by The Epoch Times, police found probable cause to issue a summons for Morris for harassment, assault, and theft.

The complaint said that Morris grabbed Kratovil’s camera and removed it from his possession before “causing bodily injury … by chasing complaint, grabbing him from his left arm and twisting his arm behind his back causing injury to his forearm and shoulder.” more – video

  1. “A bodyguard for April Ryan, a political analyst for …”

    What’s wrong with this sentence?
    Why would a “political analyst” need a bodyguard?
    Whodafuq is April Ryan and why would anyone want to harm her?

    We’re living in strange times; when virtual nobodies are in danger.

  2. I think it’s laughable that a “CNN Anal yst ” would need a Bodyguard.

    She worried that one of Her ten Viewers will turn hostile??

    More than likely Kratovil had a Sammich in His Bag, and old

    April Whine smelt it …and sent Her Goon to retrieve it…Forcibly.

  4. There should have been video from a dozen phones. Maybe there will be by the time of the trial, but right now it looks like the other journos were too cowardly to get the real story, which was not the fat fascist at the podium. Come on, journos. Ryan’s goon can’t hit all of you.

  5. Should I assume the journalist was white and was racially profiled because Ryan thought he was a provocateur going to film her saying stupid racist shit as is her wont?

  6. I think it is perfectly appropriate to classify this as a hate crime since the reporter was White. Let’s face it, if it had been the other way around we would still be seeing it 24/7 on the “news” as a purely racially charged event!

  7. Curious:

    How often does a conservative public figure have a leftist reporter attacked?

    It’s not like there aren’t any -usually disruptive- leftist reporters covering them to have attacked.

  8. “How often does a conservative public figure have a leftist reporter attacked?”

    I don’t hire anybody to do my fighting, anonymous. That’s for pansies.

  9. Bet you dollars to doughnuts the other video camera operators were “people of color” and only whitey got tossed by the Black Panther bodyguard.

    April Ryan is an absolute racist bigot.
