Campaign workers attacked
By Ben Bomberger, Galax Gazette
Two people were arrested Monday afternoon after an altercation led to five Republican campaign workers being sprayed with Mace at their headquarters in Galax.
Galax Police Chief Rick Clark said officers were dispatched shortly before 1 p.m. to the Galax Republican headquarters on East Grayson Street when a caller reported someone had sprayed office workers with Mace.
Responding officers arrested Daniel Cason Meinecke, 29, and Cara Annis Hindman, 26, both of Galax.
While [Galax Republican Chairman Mike] Stevens was unsure if the couple came into the building planning to start an altercation, he said it seemed evident they were. (link)
If only they had been more patient. A year from now, when Barack Obama is president, the private ownership of firearms is banned, the people are completely defenseless, and that national security force is in place, the government will be put at the disposal of nitwits like these two to intimidate the Democrats' opposition. Once the security stormtroopers come back from Hugo Chavez's Venezuela where they'll receive their training, that is.
America, 2008. May God have mercy.
