Charges laid in anti-abortion violence incident

Remember the assault on the clinic defender in Akron, Ohio, by an anti-choice biker?

A man has been identified and charged.
Nathan A. Chesley, 38, is charged with one count of felonious assault in the beating of 50-year-old Charles Wright.

Chesley is being held in the Summit County Jail.

Two eyewitnesses identified Chesley as the man who assaulted Wright on July 18 at the Akron Women's Medical Group at 839 E. Market St., police said.

The report doesn't say how big Mr. Wright is, but describes the assailant as 6 foot 2, 250 pounds. Mr. Wright spent two nights in the hospital as a result of his injuries.

I wonder if he has good insurance.

The right-to-lifer are angry because one of their people killed one of their targets. Wait a minute....

Love the story in the - one of the comments says that Chesley was returning from visiting the poor and sick in the hospital and was unfairly attacked just for existing(he was adopted) and advocating prayer by a nasty pro-choicer.

Fortunately the next commenter points out how odd it is that such a peaceful man would agressively refer to the black man who's 6 ribs he broke as a "n_____".

Ooh, I hadn't read the comments there, croghan. Toxic.

A couple of people there defending the biker claim to have video of the event, but no linkies.

By the way, the jury found Nathan Chesley not guilty. Figure it out if you can.
Charles had finished escorting women to the clinic and was in front holding his keep abortion legal sign... for this he got beaten down.
