LaRouche supporter assaulted by Alaska State Fair Security Video

Let alone, How much force do they have to give? For a man doing noting wrong but voicing his opinion. It's a sad day in America to see something like this.

This first day of the 2010 Alaska State Fair starts with sunny skies and a brutal assault by security personnel on a LaRouche supporter who non-violently, though quite vocally, refused to leave the private property of the Alaska State Fair, Inc.

At about 5pm Alaska Time, Thursday, August 26, 2010, security personnel approach Sidney Hill, a lone man peacefully displaying an impeach Obama sign near Pioneer Plaza on the Alaska State Fairgrounds in Palmer. Minutes later, a crowd assembles, additional security arrive, and they physically assault the man holding the sign after he refuses to leave. He's taken to the ground with force and detained.

An unidentified Alaska State Trooper arrives to physically disperse the crowd, and at several points during the conflict, crowd members yell in support of the demonstrator's right to speak his message. The demonstrator's personal firearm is confiscated by fair security, and he is held captive until Palmer police arrive to escort the man away in cuffs. The state trooper leaves before the police arrive.

Sidney Hill was in jail awaiting a pre-trial at 1:00pm on August 27, 2010 at the Palmer Courthouse. He was charged with Assault 4-Cause Fear Of Injury, Disorderly Conduct-Challenge To Fight, and Criminal Trespass 2- Upon Premises. However, according to the Valley Frontiersman newspaper, "Assistant District Attorney Trina Sears said her office decided not to prosecute Hill on the assault charge." The Alaska State Fair, Inc. contracted security and traffic control to StarPlex, a firm located in the Northwest Lower 48. Sid awaits trial in September and October for the remaining two charges.

Trooper distracts me, but I barely catch the gun in security guard's left hand at 4:41. Sid's wife confirmed that the firearm is Sid's CZ52.
