More pie-throwing


I had never encountered the name Nick Denton when I read a report that a pie had been thrown at him. There are obviously people who still think it is cute to assault someone with food at a public event. I don't care what his politics are, it is wrong to humiliate people, and risk injury with this form of attack.

I doubt that Denton is a conservative, so I will not add this incident to the list of food assaults on conservatives. But I am disgusted by it. Reportedly, Denton has denied that he was hit. This is the wrong approach, Nick. Apprehend and criminally prosecute those who further the wave of violence. Otherwise, there will be even more.
