Violence erupts and is caught LIVE in this video in Woodland Hills, California as #JaneUnChained journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell is attacked (wait for it) in front of many witnesses by a woman upset with the protesters who are demanding an end to killing chickens during a religious ritual called Kapporot! The woman grabs Velez-Mitchell’s video equipment and is led away by police. Velez-Mitchell refused to press charges, saying she wants to practice peace and understands it’s an emotional issue. Critics say chickens are swung over the heads of participants and then killed! Protesters, including prominent Rabbi Jonathan Klein, say coins can be used instead of live animals and describe this as unnecessary cruelty! Ritual participants are invited on any time to give their responses to the criticisms.
