Cannibalism at Health Care Rally in Los Angeles
No word on whether private insurance will cover the finger reattachment or the dental check-up. Man’s Finger Bitten Off in Scuffle at Health Care Rally.
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. Doctors reattached the finger, which was said to have been severed in half. He has since been released, according to a hospital spokesperson.
Neither man has been identified.
In case that wasn’t clear — a pro-health care demonstrator was apparently assaulted by an anti-health care demonstrator, and retaliated by chowing down on his pinky.
