A woman in Columbus, Ohio, is facing charges of assault and criminal damaging after going on a verbal and physical tirade against members of the pro-life organization Created Equal. The entire episode was captured on camera.
In the video, Victoria Duran is shown aggressively confronting young Created Equal members and interns, destroying their signs, and repeatedly hurling expletive-laced pejoratives towards them. “You’re just a white f*cking privileged racist f*cking male that doesn’t stand for women’s rights,” she said at one point before kicking a sign and attacking one of the men with a camera.
She told the demonstrators that their signs “deserved to get f*cked up.”
Duran then tried to elude the Created Equal members by hopping on to a nearby bus — but the bus stayed put until authorities arrived on the scene. She dramatically told police, “Go ahead, take me.”
She has since been charged with assault and criminal damaging, according to Created Equal. Duran says she has no regrets about her behavior.
“Assault?” she told a local news station, “I wouldn’t necessarily say shoving them aside and telling them to keep the camera out of my face [is] assault.”
