California– A group mourning the death of man killed the night before were videotaped attacking Fox News reporters. The mourners became angry after repeatedly asking the crew to “back off” and to respect their privacy. Authorities are reviewing the tape of the attack to determine if any charges need to be filed.
In the footage, Lobertini can be seen approaching a handful of people standing by the memorial as Little recorded the encounter. A woman in glasses and a hoodie quickly begins yelling at the journalists, the video shows, as another in a white cap calmly asks reporters to “just back off.”
A person who was at the incident, but did not participate in the violence, told the local news station that it was an emotional day and people were mourning the loss of a loved one.
“A lot of people, they’re not in the right state of mind when going through something like this,” Meghan Saffold said. “So you know, all I say is, when someone asks you something, that you should respect it and respect their wishes.”
