VIDEO: MSNBC Journalist Takes Direct Hit from Stun Grenade on Live TV

At night, as extremists hijack these otherwise peaceful protests, America is beginning to look like a war zone.

By all indications, the demonstrations that we are seeing around the nation today are the largest sustained protests in the history of America.  That in and of itself is nothing to scoff at, given that this is a nation built on the heavily-defended ideals of freedom and equality.

And let’s face it, you cannot have freedom without equality, or vice versa – not in a system that relies undeniably on the First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

So when an MSNBC reporter found herself in the line of fire, patriotic Americans began to grow nervous.

Jo Ling Kent was live on MSNBC in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhoodwhen she was caught in what appeared to be fireworks.

“I don’t know if you can hear me, but we have police now advancing on protesters,” Kent said, before her left hand was then struck.

The news network reported that the crew initially thought the reporter was hit by a firework, but “after reviewing footage of the incident from multiple angles, the team concluded it was a flash-bang grenade.”

Video of the incident was disturbing to say the least.

Kent posted to Twitter after the incident indicating that she is not injured, and that she was sorry for her expletives during the broadcast.
