    So should we all assume that US Congressmen have a bulls eye on their back?

    What should be done with the man who assaulted him? How can it only be a 4rth degree misdemeanor?

    Is the fact that the man a socialist the reason the law seems to be so lenient with him?

    - From what I've read the attack may have happened because of some nonsense regarding unraked leaves. So, no, you should probably not assume US Congressmen have a bulls eye on their back based upon this story.

    - I read he might face 10 years in prison. If so, I would not regard that as lenient. I guess you would rather put the man on the electric chair, but we don't all share your lust for blood.

    - 😞 Yes, the law "seems" lenient because the man is a socialist. You idiotic manchild.

    Why does It matter what excuse he used?

    If he knows the law, it would behoove him to say that politics was not apart of it.

    They will lock him up for a long time because obviously he is some greenie environmentalist who did not care for Rand Paul's recycling and mulching efforts.

    Given Trump's administration's hate of the environment the guy will probably get 25 years.

    You've already got this entire case figured out, haven't you?

    Just like that time you knew exactly why that German pilot flew his plane into the mountain side. Until you were proven wrong, that is :/

    Summary: the attack is an attack on Whodey's way of life.

    Again, what does it matter his motive?

    He just beat the crap out of a US Congressman and could have killed him.

    In fact, he still could have issues from it that leads to his demise.

    I guess the message is, if you want to beat the crap out of a Congressman, then just become their neighbor and pick a fight and no federal charges will be brought against you.

    I guess it doesn't.

    Attacking one is SUPOSE to be a felony.

    On the lighter side though, you have to love a guy like Rand who mows his own lawn.

    Does he fertilize his own lawn or is that just the way he talks?

    Typing "SUPOSE" ought to be a felony.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_Tucson_shooting

    "On January 8, 2011, U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and eighteen others were
    shot during a constituent meeting held in a supermarket parking lot in Casas Adobes, Arizona,
    in the Tucson metropolitan area. Six people died, including federal District Court Chief
    Judge John Roll; Gabe Zimmerman, one of Rep. Giffords' staffers; and a nine-year-old girl,
    Christina-Taylor Green. ... She (Giffords) was shot through the head at point-blank range,"

    "In March 2010, Giffords had expressed concern about the use of crosshairs on a
    national midterm election map on Sarah Palin's campaign webpage denoting targeted
    congressional seats, including Giffords's, in Arizona's 8th district."

    The murderer, Jared Lee Loughner, is a white man who apparently believed conspiracy theories.

    Whodey. It’s wrong to beat someone up.
    Unless it’s self defense. Surely.
    If someone’s coming into your house to poop on your bed and steal your TV, surely these are circumstances which should be judged with some leniency?

    Now, imagine a politician is voting to poop on the planet you live in, steal your healthcare and send your son to be traumatised in a war you don’t understand...

    Oh...

    Probably a good thing the man didn’t have a gun, wouldn’t you say?

    However, all logic aside, I personally don’t believe in beating up politicians in a democracy.
