Some of you probably want to know why this didn’t happen in Cleveland at the Republican National Convention right? It’s because we’re not Democrats! A Hillary Clinton delegate got angry at a Bernie Sanders female delegate because she was using her 1st amendment rights to support her candidate.
I know a few of you have been at that place where you support Donald Trump and are thrown to the wolves because you didn’t support someone else. I’ve been there this entire election cycle. All I have to say is stick to your choice and don’t be swayed by the anger or emotional response by someone else.
I will say this man assaulting a female in any environment is wrong and not only should he be tossed and lose his delegation card, he should have been jailed.
@987News Hey Howell & Yarbrough! News! TN Clinton delegate Jerry Ogle had his DNC credentials revoked for assaulting a Bernie delegate (me).

From the Tennessean:
A Tennessee delegate has had his credential and duties rescinded and no longer has a seat at the Democratic National Convention after an altercation on Monday with a Bernie Sanders supporter.
Jerry Ogle, a Clinton delegate from Monroe County, was removed from Tennessee’s delegation Tuesday morning after it was determined that he violated the party’s code of conduct agreement when he had an inappropriate interaction with Amanda Kruel, a Sanders delegate.
“Yesterday I was cheering for Bernie as many others were and there was a guy behind me who was making faces at me. There was one point where he grabbed me by the shoulder and he twisted me around and yelled in my face ‘Act like a Democrat,” Kruel, who is from Knoxville, said while describing Ogle’s actions as “assault.”
Kruel said Ogle was angry because she was supporting Sanders. “I told him don’t you care about freedom of speech – I’m just trying to be a Democrat,” she said Tuesday afternoon. “People are interrupting speeches to yell when they hear Hillary. Why is it wrong to interrupt speeches and shout when they hear Bernie?”
The incident in question occurred Monday shortly after the convention officially convened at 4:30 p.m.
Sanders supporters took over the media tent today as you can see the situation has going awry very quickly:
If it gets to the point you are striking someone because of what they believe, that quickly moves you into the category of an animal and you should be locked up.
You do not have the right to put your hands on anyone else’s person, and you most definitely would feel the consequences if that happened to me or a member of my family. Go to the convention, voice your opinions, shout a bit, vote and go home.
