Did Jupiter Police have a choice?

Thanks to Joe Biden and the funds that have been channeled through the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), Jupiter police had little choice but to charge Corey Lewandowski with battery.

Under Florida Statute 784.03, the crime of misdemeanor battery is committed when a person either:

1.     Intentionally touches or strikes another person against their will; or
2.     Intentionally causes bodily harm to another person.

The video is highly suggestive that Corey Lewandowski touched Michelle Fields against her will.

Florida Family Law is badly in need of reform.  SB 668 has not yet been signed into law by Rick Scott.  Two years ago, Rick Scott did not sign a related bill.

Tort reform was in fashion until the lawyers got hold of Barack Obama.  Our criminal justice system needs reform.  Our Family Law system needs reform.

I don’t think a jury of Corey Lewandowski’s peers would convict him of even simple battery.  I recommend to Corey and to Mr. Trump that they not waive the right to trial by jury.
The web describes defenses against battery.  These include implied consent as in athletic contests.
