Man's Finger Bitten Off in Scuffle at Health Care Rally - KTLA: "THOUSAND OAKS -THOUSAND OAKS
A 65-year-old man had his finger bitten off Wednesday evening at a health care rally in Thousand Oaks, according to the Ventura County Sheriff's Department.
Sheriff's investigators were called to Hillcrest and Lynn Road at 7:26 p.m.
About 100 protesters sponsored by MoveOn.org were having a rally supporting health care reform. A group of anti-health care reform protesters formed across the street.
A witness from the scene says a man was walking through the anti-reform group to get to the pro-reform side when he got into an altercation with the 65-year-old, who opposes health care reform.
The 65-year-old was apparently aggressive and hit the other man, who then retaliated by biting off his attacker's pinky, according to Karoli from DrumsnWhistles.
The man took his finger and walked to Los Robles hospital for treatment.
Neither man has been identified.
Sheriff's officials are investigating the incident.

Here's the video:
Here's an eyewitness account from supporter Drumsnwhistles:
[...] The man in the orange shirt hit the pro-reform guy (I’m going to call him PR Guy just to keep the players straight). Hard. ( tweeted in real time) He punched him in the face, knocked him to the ground and into that thruway. As you can see from the photo, cars drive straight through that without stopping. The pro-reform guy could have been run over. He got up, tried to get back up on the curb, but Orange Shirt guy was in his face. Finger in his face, PR Guy standing, steps up to the curb, and there’s a scuffle. Orange shirt seemed to have PR Guy in a hold, but again, I was across the street, so won’t state that as absolute fact. Next thing I see is PR Guy’s hat being tossed into the street, both yelling at one another, then Orange shirt walks away, PR Guy picks up hat and crosses to our side.
When he gets to our side, he tells a story in one sentence: “He punched me hard, straight in the face, so I bit his finger off.” [...]
[...] It now appears that the biter was an Obamacare supporter and the victim was an Obamacare foe. [...]
[...] Bob Owens rewrites the Obama-bots’ new motto: “Yes, We Can(nibal)!” [...]
[...] Ed Morrissey looks at the mayhem and the possible charges that both the biter and the bitee (who reportedly through a punch) might face. [...]
Obamabots are now cannibals. Nice people these Obamabots.
Check out the Tweet that MSNBC's David Shuster posted a little while ago. He apparently sees some significant irony in the fact that the ObamaCare protester who had a finger bitten off by a supporter of Pres. Obama's plan was treated by Medicare.
"that's right, it was medicare... a govt run program that represents all the protestor objects to... it was medicare that treated him."
To which we would respond: so what? [...]
Good God! WHAT ABOUT THE FINGER BITING you ignorant twit?
