    Charges SHOULD be filed...what a jerk! We pay him to treat students (or any citizens) in that manner?

    Hopefully he will be added to the list of unemployed this November; unfortunately I live in the 3rd district and can’t vote against him. And yes, charges should be filed.

    And to keep in line with DefensiveCarry policies on politics, yes he is an ardent supporter of gun control laws.

    He looks to me to be intoxicated in some manner.
    Even before first contact as they filmed him walking toward their direction (and I had no idea what would occur) he appeared to me to be as they say; 'Not all there'.

    I wonder if he was medicated, within an adjustment period toward meds or even off his meds altogether.

    He should be prosecuted. Unacceptable behavior for anyone.

    I concur.
    I pray that he is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Really...I wish the kid defended himself and layed the guy out...and then call the cops to have him arrested for assault, battery, drunk and disorderly, and whatever can be thrown at him.

    Wow....I've worked 36-hours straight...never had to get in someone's face when they asked me questions.

    IMO, he looked and acted drunk...as he was trying to show his "beer muscles". He really needed to be layed out like any drunk should...

    Charges should be filed. Hopefully he loses out in November as well.

    My first thought on seeing it was also that he was under the influence of something. Repeating "who are you" over and over again is pretty darned unusual behavior in that situation, IMO...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Thing is if the roles were reversed and the kid had grabbed ethridge instead the kid would have been promptly arrested and still be sitting in jail.

    Angry, hungry, tired, bored or medicated - you don't get to grab.
    In the CNN text of his 'apology', CNN says "The six-term congressman also said . . . ." there you go. Not too much booze . . . too much time out-of-touch with reality as a pampered, privileged congressman.
