Journalist Wearing Google Glass Attacked by Patriot

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A man said he had his Google Glass snatched of his face and smashed to the ground in San Francisco`s Mission District Friday evening.


20-year-old journalist Kyle Russell, a reporter for Business Insider, said the attack happened as he was walking on the sidewalk with a colleague. A woman came up to him and yelled,  `Glass!` and grabbed the device off his face and sprinted away, he said.

Russell said he chased the woman through traffic for a block before she stopped and flung the $1,500 device onto the ground, breaking it " then running away again."


A tech geek who brazenly walks down a street wearing Google Glass is begging for trouble, he`s basically saying "I don`t give a rip about your privacy."

A Google Glass-wearing geek is an affront to our privacy and freedom, and we must fight back if wish to preserve our democracy.

An individual who dons Google Glass in public is identifying himself with the Orwellian forces of oppression, and he will surely reap what he sows.

Russell had the unmitigated gall to wear Google Glass shortly after covering a march in protest against a Google lawyer who evicted renters from a building he purchased.

Russell got off way too easy; the Google Glass-wearing freak should have dealt with old school style: Tarred, feathered and ridden out of San Francisco on a rail.

The woman who smashed the Google Glass to smithereens is at the vanguard of an army of patriots who are seeking to preserve our privacy and civil liberties.

Whose side are you on? If you don`t praise the action of the brave woman, by default you are on the side of the totalitarian state.
