SEE IT: Paul Pelosi Hammer Attack Video Hits the Web
To say that we are living in strange times is a bit redundant at this point, given the totality of the bizarre happenings that the world and American in particular have been inundated with over the course of the last decade or so.
A reality star President, a pandemic, a mentally-questionable President, Russia’s kinda-maybe-sorta World War III…the list goes on.
And so in true, wacky, gonzo 21st-century style, why wouldn’t the spouse of a prominent US Congresswoman be attacked with a hammer in his home? This is the world we’re living in now, and a lot of it is being caught on camera.
A California court on Friday released surveillance and bodycam video of the October 2022 attack on Paul Pelosi, husband of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, at their San Francisco home.
The San Francisco County Superior Court made the footage public after Judge Stephen Murphy denied a request two days earlier by prosecutors to keep it secret.Trending:
The Oct. 28 attack sent Paul Pelosi, 82, to the hospital for emergency surgery on a skull fracture.
One portion of the footage shows police knocking on the door of Pelosi’s home, before the door opens to reveal Paul Pelosi and suspect David DePape.
The attack was still ongoing when police arrived.
“What’s going on, man?” an officer asks.
“Everything is good,” DePape responds as he and Pelosi each have one hand on a hammer, with DePape also placing a hand on Pelosi’s wrist. Pelosi appears to be holding an object in his other hand.
“Drop the hammer!” the officer then says as he shines his flashlight at the two men.
“Umm, nope,” DePape responds, before starting to pull the hammer away from Pelosi, who says, “Hey! Hey, hey, hey!”Advertisement - story continues below
The hammer then breaks free and DePape is seen swinging it at Pelosi, who appears to attempt to retreat before being struck.
The stunning video can be seen below, but we must warn you, it is graphic.
The Paul Pelosi bodycam and 911 call raise more questions than answers.
All so bizarre.
