Sheriff decides against charging Trump with inciting a riot over rally violence

Victor Morton (The Washington Times, 14/03/2016)

A North Carolina sheriff’s office was considering criminal charges, including inciting a riot, against Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, but decided against that path Monday evening.
The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office issued two statements Monday regarding a rally last week in Fayetteville, where a Trump supporter punched a protester as he was being led out by security.
In the earlier statement, the Sheriff’s Office said it was considering charging Mr. Trump with inciting a riot over the attack against a protester by John McGraw, 78, who already had been charged with assault.

No, Donald Trump Won't Be Charged With Inciting A Riot
Jessica Taylor (NPR, 14/03/2016)
Donald Trump has denied that escalating violence and heated confrontations at his political rallies were his responsibility, but one local law enforcement group weighed testing that on Monday.
Local station WRAL was the first to report that the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office was considering charging the GOP presidential front-runner with inciting a riot after a protester was punched in the face during a rally he held in Fayetteville, N.C., last week. Now the office seems to have reconsidered that.
Seventy-eight-year old John Franklin McGraw was charged with assault and disorderly conduct after the incident. Trump said Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press" that he is considering helping McGraw with his legal bills.

No violence at rallies

Trump: 'There's no violence, nobody's been hurt' at rallies

Donald Trump said Monday "there's no violence, nobody's been hurt" at his rallies, which have had a number of high-profile incidents of violence in the past week.
"First of all let's not even use the word violence, there's very little disruption generally speaking. It's a function of the press, the press likes to say what the press likes to say," Trump told CNN's Wolf Blitzer Monday.
"If one person gets up and starts shouting and the police walks that person out, they try and make it like it's a violent thing. It's not violent. It's a protester that stands up or probably a disruptor, because I think they're sent there by people on the other side," he said.

Corey Lewandowski allegedly forcibly grabbed Michelle Fields, then a reporter for Breitbart News, at a Trump event last week and pushed her towards the ground, leaving bruises.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Cruz described the Trump campaign as reaching a new “height of disdain from a candidate for reporters and voters.”
