Que the banjos: Cop Assaults Peaceful Protestor

Seems some hillbilly cop in Asheville, North Carolina either went on a power trip or a something like a 'roid rage and attacked an activist for peace in his home.  He had to break the door down to do it, but hey, when there are peace activists to be billy clubbed, a door is not going to stand in the way.

Seems now the cop is trying to lie his way out of the whole incident and blame his rage on the protestor.  However, luckily there was at least one witness nearby that saw the whole thing.

Sadly, taking place in the mountains of North Carolina, I would bet the officer becomes a local legend, the witness disappears, and the hippie gets the chair.
