A young woman who was pepper sprayed at a Trump rally in Wisconsin this week is facing charges because video from the incident shows she punched an older man in the face.

Some liberal media outlets have been advancing a false narrative that she was sexually assaulted.

Police recommend charges for teen pepper-sprayed outside Trump rally

The 15-year-old pepper sprayed at a Donald Trump rally earlier this week may face charges of disorderly conduct for allegedly punching a man in an altercation captured on video.

Police in Janesville, Wis., where the rally took place Tuesday, are recommending juvenile authorities bring charges — even though the man the girl allegedly punched doesn’t want to press charges, according to The Associated Press.

The girl alleges the man touched her chest, but police said Thursday they found no evidence to support that.

On video, the girl confronts a man in the crowd and it appears she throws a punch before getting pepper sprayed in the face.

The Janesville, WI, Police Department today determined that no sexual assault took place at a recent Trump Rally on March 29, 2016, and the alleged victim was instead a perpetrator of violence, despite numerous false media reports and the publishing of selectively edited video of the incident. RebelPundit’s Andrew Marcus and Jeremy Segal were on-the-ground at the Janesville rally, interviewed eyewitnesses, and spoke repeatedly with the Janesville PD thoughout the investigation. The footage they published has been instrumental in the police’s findings, including the female admitting “I deserved it,” as she walked away.

At a press conference on the afternoon of March 31, 2016, the Janesville Policy Department determined that the young female who alleged a sexual assault had occurred was instead herself a perpetrator of violence.

“We reviewed this video as well as many others and we did not find evidence of a sexual assault. The video does not support evidence of a sexual assault. It does support that a punch was delivered by the 15-year-old and it certainly supports that an OC spray was used.” The police interviewed both the young woman who alleged herself to be a victim of sexual assault, the alleged perpetrator who has since been completely cleared of any wrongdoing, along with 15 witnesses.

Will the media outlets which reported this as a sexual assault correct their mistake?

Probably not. The damage they wanted to inflict is done.
