Torch Attack: This is just wrong
Seriously?? This is just wrong! Attacking a vulnerable Olympic Torch carrier is about as low as it gets.
But, with that said, I still had to laugh a time or two. The newspaper reporting on this story championed the young woman in the wheelchair as a hero that protecting the torch from an angry mob. Yet, it seems to be that this young woman would've been a bit screwed if it weren't for the help she received from the people surrounding her. In fact, I'd bet that the angry mob would've kicked her ass if they had a chance to.
Fortunately, after things calmed down, the young woman and the torch kept rolling along.
