    The yard dispute could be a feint by the attacker to avoid Federal charges.

    I dont understand why all white people are so violent. You cant talk about the Paul assault until there is no white crime.

    Im talking about mass shootings and whatnot. If 3 people are killed per day in Chicago, then that Las Vegas shooting equals 20 days worth of Chicago violence.

    If you define mass shooting as 3 or more indiscriminate victims then White men are the most responsible...but not disproportionately so. There are more White men than Black or Hispanic men. If you go by percentage, it is proportional.

    I have a problem with the definition of "mass shooting" to begin with.

    I wonder how he was so hurt. Mowing lawn and someone assaults you seems unlikely to break so many ribs unless a weapon was involved. I also wonder why he was mowing his lawn, he works in DC he should have someone to do that for him. More to the story but will we ever hear of it, I don't know.

    If Paul was hurt so badly solely from that, imagine if one of the more spineless Republicans were assaulted.

    (The lower link has a great report on "mass shootings in Chicago- they refer to 3 ppl being shot as a hat trick-lulz)

    We have this same conversation every year

    From US News - https://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-09-29/race-and-homicide-in-america-by-the-numbers

    Among the roughly 6,000 cases in which the race of the victim and the offender were known, the number of blacks killed by blacks rose to 2,380 last year, an increase of about 8 percent from 2014.

    However, the share of black-on-black homicides as a proportion of black people killed actually fell by just under 1 percentage point, to 89.3 percent. This undoubtedly fractional decrease – which marked the third straight year of incremental reductions – still meant that for the first time since the start of the 21st century, the percentage of black victims killed by another black person stood below 90 percent of the total of black people killed.


    Often less discussed – to the consternation of experts and columnists – is the phenomenon of white-on-white homicides. The number of white people killed by other whites rose 3.5 percent to 2,574 victims in 2015.

    Black folk make up 13% of the population but commit almost 50% of the deaths by shooting. Whites and hispanics make up 77%.
    Black on black shooting deaths account for 89% of the total cases where the police know the perp and the victim.

    Death by shooting is actually much higher (almost 16,000 cases), however they are not included in the stats as the crimes are unsolved.
    This shows that black people contribute disproportionately to shooting death statistics in the US.

    Here is an excellent site that gives a great window into the violence that is Chicago, and they break out the white/hispanic action (17%) where the information from US News does not. I'm going to guess this trend carries forward in many cities that have a high gang activity rate.

    Some people just like mowing their own lawn. It's kind of fun and relaxing if you don't do it all the time. George Bush used to cit brush all day on his ranch in Texas. I assume he has a big yard and was on a riding mower.

    As to the injury if someone was knocked off a riding lawn mower with force and hit the ground with force you could break a few ribs. Did the mower roll on him? Did he fall off the mower and roll down a hill? As you say, there is a lot we don't know.

    Well, that leaves only 345 more days for you to rationalize away.
