The toxic environment that's become a trademark of Donald Trump's raucous campaign turned violent again on Wednesday when a protester at the Republican frontrunner's rally in Fayetteville, N.C., was sucker-punched by one of Trump's supporters.

"No one should be subjected to such a cowardly, unprovoked act as that committed by McGraw," Cumberland County Sheriff Earl "Moose" Butler said in a statement Thursday afternoon. "Regardless of political affiliation, speech, race, national origin, color, gender, bad reputation, prior acts or political demonstration, no other citizen has the right to assault another person or to act in such a way as this defendant did. I hope that the courts will handle this matter with the appropriate severity for McGraw's severe and gross violation of this victim's rights."
