  •  It's a pretty clear cut case of assault -- a blow (2+ / 0-)

    and a mark, with numerous witnesses. Seems like a slam dunk, done deal, to me. Anything else would be piling on ( the use of the language pretty much shreds whatever could possibly be remaining of any positive reputation -- likely punished with societal condemnation far more devestating than any additional charges ) and likely legally unrequired.

     Not that he doesn't deserve it and most certainly has it coming.

     Wonder what Rush will have to say about this one?

    it tastes like burning...

    •  More like battery, more serious (1+ / 0-)

      Assault can be charged without making actual contact.  Actually hitting someone is generally assault and battery, a more serious charge.

      This guy comes from the former basecamp of Aryan Nations and sounds like one of them.  He should be charged with felony A&B on a minor and a hate crime.  He is certainly a liability to the company he runs, but if he owns it and can't be fired, then the company itself should be debarred.
