    Me neither. Human nature has ways of "justifying" violence toward others. Maybe the attacking couple could claim to be union members and immune from arrest or prosecution.

    The attackers should be prosecuted under the Hate Crimes rules.

    does it surprise you that folks get attacked for their personal social or political beliefs? really? or are you just employing the usual selectivity?

    Nope. Like I said, it doesn't surprise me at all.

    Your lack of outrage is duly noted, however. Maybe it's just your usual selectivity? :confused:
