Another senseless act of violence: When will congress act?

Posted by Bill Nance on September 10, 2008

From the AP:

PHILADELPHIA – Police have arrested a man suspected of brutally attacking a dozing subway passenger with a hammer while other riders did nothing to stop the assault, the city’s police commissioner said Wednesday.

The suspect, taken into custody in a mental institution late Tuesday, has a lengthy record of rape and other convictions, Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said on NBC’s “Today.”

The victim was treated and released from a hospital.

Clearly we need more and better HAMMER control.

    Woman Assaulted with Carrot

    Roderick Vecsey was charged with disorderly conduct and second degree assault after blinding one of his wife’s eyes with a carrot.

    The 46-year-old couple were arguing when Roderick flung the carrot at Pamela hitting her left eye. Although doctors tried to restore her sight in a 6 hours surgery, they failed to.

    Roderick said to Judge Patrick Carroll that it was a “terrible accident” but was advised to remain silent and was released after paying a $500 bond
