Now That's Pathetic

This is a picture of Tim Profitt, the guy who felt the need to "restrain" a young woman who was protesting a Rand Paul campaign event by stepping on her head, and Rand Paul. He must be twice the size of the woman he stepped on, who reportedly was already restrained by another Paul campaign worker. Yet somehow, he feels the need to ask the woman for an apology:
"I don't think it's that big of a deal," Profitt said. "I would like for her to apologize to me to be honest with you."

"She's a professional at what she does," Profitt added, "and I think when" all the facts come out, I think people will see that she was the one that initiated the whole thing."

If anyone ever needs a picture to go along with the phrase "pathetic little man", the picture of this guy towering over the politician he used to volunteer for would be a good choice.

When you're caught in a situation like this, hurting someone half your size in what turns out to be an unnecessary use of force, I think the best thing to do is say you're sorry she's hurt and hope she recovers. Leave all the excuse making for if the thing makes it to court.
