Are you saying you DEFEND how he was treated due to your perceived opinion he had a "smug" look on his face? Really?

I guess we will see how the courts perceive this now won't we?
Your bias colored your vision. Body language can be more telling than the spoken word.

So, exactly what is the appropriate body language of someone who has been approached by a stranger, had them chanting in a foreign language while invading their personal space?

Since the kids response was to stand there and smile, apparently he should have been doing what, exactly? If he made any move, he would have been called threatening, aggressive, and so on.

You are the one way off base, and color your perspective based on the fact that the kid wasn't of your preferred political lean.

The same can be said for you.

I will answer for Rye. The boy was supposed to run away and give the win to the Liberals. That was the only "Acceptable" thing to do.

And about the attorney.... perhaps some of these top gun attorneys should be doing a bit more pro-bono to the low income group, to level the playing field. We have a litigation attorney in my family, who is most definitely on the liberal side of things, yet his pro bono work is almost nonexistent. His statement: I pay enough in taxes that should be used to to pay for a decent attorney for the charity cases.

Wow. Just...wow.
That is very common among Liberals. They do not believe in DOING any type of charity work, or giving their hard earned money to people that need it, just like they do not believe in doing anything about global warming, they want OTHERS to do something about it. I have heard many say that taxes are enough charity.

More than any other group, they complain about things while doing absolutely nothing.

I am actually, honestly, interested in what Catcher will say. I cannot fathom what the kid could have done that wouldn't have put him at the center ring on a bulls eye, except what he did. I would believe I would have turned and walked away, for which I would have been labeled a 'hater', I'm sure.

Walking away is supposed to help prevent the agitator from having a target.

You could tell the kid was extremely uncomfortable. The left mistook a nervous smile as some type of psychological propaganda by a battle hardened mastermind of the Republican party.

The left is probably thinking that the kid is lucky he was confronted by a crazy old liberal instead of Antifa, another of their favorite groups.

I agree, but I am seeking a direct answer from @Wry Catcher
