It was NOT, "...it was just placing a hand on her arm...". He did a LOT more than just place a hand on the little girl's arm. Near the beginning of the video You can see that he grabbed her arm and at one point had two hands on her whilst AGGRESSIVELY trying to take the flyers from her. This was not a benign touch as seems to be indicated in your comment.

It also came as a surprise to me, after watching that video at least twice and posting a screen grab of the assault (which is still bad enough), that the "little girl" is in fact an adult. We have to be very cautious of the power of suggestion, our own expectation biases, and Trial by Twitter should never replace Trial by Jury.
