Ye Shall Know Them By Their Fruits

A 65-year old counter-protestor had the tip of his pinky finger bitten off by a pro-Obama supporter:
“It all started with their difference in philosophy over healthcare reform,” said Senior Deputy Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department.
A witness picked up the detached fingertip after the suspect spit it out and drove it to the hospital. Buschow said doctors told the victim that they could not reattach the fingertip because of the high risk of infection.
The speculations in the accompanying comment thread are sometimes... interesting:
20 bucks says the victim was wagging his finger in front of the guy and was warned to stop several times. i bet he deserved it.
the anti-reformers do not know how to have a discussion about this topic. they have to get in your face anytime they are trying to make a point. just shows how ignorant and how intolerant they really are as people.
