On April 20, 2018, Liberty Hangout, a right libertarian group at Kent State University, hosted a “change my mind” event on the K on the subject of gun rights. During the event, John Marcinkiewicz, a freshman political science major at Kent State, approached the group and assaulted their cameraman, Nathan Murphy.
According to Liberty Hangout, Marcinkiewicz approached the group around 3:15 p.m. and engaged them in conversation. Marcinkiewicz debated with the group for over thirteen minutes before crumpling up an informational paper he had been handed and striking the camera — a Canon Rebel T6i, priced at roughly $650 — out of Nathan Murphy’s hands.
Along with the body, the camera’s mounted RODE video microphone, priced at roughly $150, was damaged, along with a 55mm lens, priced roughly at $100.
