Reporter Dan Heyman Is Arrested For Questioning Trump's Health Secretary Tom Price

Submitted by: fancylad 1 week ago in News & Politics


West Virginia reporter Dan Heyman attempted to ask Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price a question about the Republican health-care bill on May 9. He was arrested for “Willful Disruption of State Government Processes." To boil it down, a reporter was arrested for asking a Trump cabinet member a question. This is Trump's America, IAB.

He was not arrested for asking a cabinet member a question. The description lies.
  And "Trump's America" is the same as Obama's, Bush's, Clinton's and Reagan's America. The country didn't change overnight because a different idiot is in the White House. It seems you can't find any legitimate reason to criticize Trump, so you make shit up. There are plenty of real reasons, by the way. Don't sacrifice your credibility on nonsense like this.

On topic once again it looks like this guy was removed twice, now there's not enough detail in this article for me to ascertain if removing him was legitimate or not. IE not enough information for me to come to any conclusion.

Lefty here. You can't charge at S.S. Agents. You will get arrested. Good question though.

I don't like Trump. Not as a president, anyway. I certainly don't like his administration's take on news reporting, either. On the other hand, though, the accompanying article  does indicate that he wasn't merely asking questions but that he was being actively disruptive despite having been removed more than once. Assuming that this is actually correct, I could understand the guards finally giving up and arresting him.

dromed as a "lefty" and for the record, I did not believe this before looking into it further.  So your assertion is incorrect.  Nevertheless, since you brought up the "gullibility" of the lefties, I'm guessing that you have forgotten about the constant stream of vitriol based on lies and misinformation coming from the right during Obama's administration?  Am I correct in assuming you do not subscribe to the theory that the prevalence of "fake news" during the 2016 election cycle had anything to do with the election of our current president?  Before you suggest lefties are gullible, perhaps you and your party need to look in the mirror.  

Let me guess... your response will be that you do not subscribe to any party, right?  Or maybe you were going to say that don't particularly care for our current president.  Were one (or both) of these going to be your counter point(s) to suggest I'm in the wrong here? I guess I've saved you the trouble.  Either that, or you'll just ignore this post since you've been so clearly outclassed.  

Sigh... you conservatards are all too predictable.

OH...and as for why we ended up with Trump?   Hillary is an unlikable shrew and her party forgot that you can't win the Presidency without getting lots of white men and their wives to vote for them.  We've grown tired of being "deplorable" and blamed for every fucking thing that's wrong with people's lives that has fuck all to so with us.

dromed Can you expand on what exactly you are being blamed for?  And are you talking about YOU personally, or your party?  I think it's pretty easy to make an argument that your party (assuming it's truly Republican) has had a big role in what is not working these days.  But if you are talking about you personally, well, I'd need a little more insight into what you mean before I can posit a theory.

And in truth, I don't really have a big ego.  I consider myself a reasonable guy.  Nevertheless, certain things you said triggered my inner asshole, and I'm not always successful at... uh... plugging it.  This analogy is going south fast.

Seriously though, I'd like to know what you mean by being blamed for all of society's ills.

dromed if you're truly tired of being deplorable, then stop being deplorable.  It's a pretty easy solution.

skeeter01 Again, I congratulate you on the enormity of your ego along with your ability to complete any argument or debate without the need of input from the other side.  I suggest you submit numerous topics for Fancy's consideration and when they are posted the rest of us can sit back and marvel at your brilliance as you wrangle the issue like a corgi  with a new chew toy.

Actually, according to the criminal complaint by the capitol police, Heyman was: 

"breaching the secret service agents to the point where the agents were forced to remove him a couple of times from the area walking up the hallway in the main building of the Capitol...The individual repeatedly tried to push his way past secret service agents who were providing for the safety and security for an event at the state capitol. There were other reporters present who asked questions without incident."

The event concluded with a press conference at the end of Price's visit, which Heyman reportedly could have attended but did not.

"to boil it down" 

I similar 'to boil it down' news: Lincoln died from lead poisoning.

Try reading the complaint: He was arrested for "aggressively breaching the secret service agents to the point where the agents were forced to remove him a couple of times from the area walking up the hallway in the main building of the Capitol. The defendant was causing a disturbance by yelling at Ms. Conway and Secretary Price."


"As the criminal complaint explains, this is not about someone trying to ask questions. The individual repeatedly tried to push his way past secret service agents who were providing for the safety and security for an event at the state capitol. There were other reporters present who asked questions without incident." - Lawrence Messina, West Virginia's Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety

But then, Fancylad is not exactly known for letting facts get in the way of a biased and inaccurate posting.

megrendel You know, its funny. When I first read the headline, I expected the story to actually turn out to be pretty much exactly what it really was. Its bad when news slants things in a certain way so much that its immediately obvious when a headline has been "misrepresented".

megrendel this, I hate when people try to shorten a story so it works for them like "so and so was seen with a gun then charged the officers when they asked about it, so they shot them" or to simplify it "the police shot so and so"
better to give the whole story then give a shortened version so at least all the information is there
