Woman knocked out at Howard walkabout

Just something I found amusing

A WOMAN was knocked out during a shopping centre appearance by Prime Minister John Howard in west Sydney today.

Mr Howard was walking through the food court of the Penrith Plaza shopping centre when the woman was knocked to the ground and hit her head.

A member of Mr Howard's security team and local police stayed with the woman until she regained consciousness a few seconds later.

She was led, crying and rubbing her head, to a nearby store.

Earlier, a 29-year-old man was spoken to by police after he declined to shake the Prime Minister's hand.

The man, identified only as Alex, put his hand out as Mr Howard approached him but then whipped his hand away.

"I'm not a fan," he said later.

Alex was spoken to by police before being allowed to leave.


Why are the police speaking to someone who denies to shake Howard's hand? Since when is that something that is their business? I get that it was a prank but so what, I would be more concerned about the people who did shake his hand.
For some reason this reminds me of that guy who got tazered by the police in Florida for yelling questions at John Kerry

Oh MAN! He was in Penrith Plaza and I didn't know about it!? FUCK!

I love the guy going to shake his hand, then whips it away. I'm a BIG fan of that guys now.
