‘Deplorable’ suspect draws blood from poll worker by hiding box cutter blades in Trump-Pence sign

Source: RawStory

An election worker in Plano, Texas was reportedly injured by box cutter blades that were hidden in a Trump-Pence campaign sign.

According to KTVT, the sign was placed where the suspect knew that poll workers would have to remove it. And after a precinct official ordered the sign taken down, a volunteer was sliced open by the hidden box cutter blades. The blades drew blood but luckily the cuts were not serious.

County Democratic campaign chair Steve Spainhouer told KTVT that the incident was “deplorable.”

The Texas Rangers were reportedly investigating the incident at the request of precinct officials. Collin College said in a statement that all signs on campus were being inspected for sharp objects.

3. Is this why the cable news shows are so in for Trump?

Is this "class envy" because they don't have any?

Can someone explain the attraction to me? I am literally dumbfounded for the first time in my life that all the cable news is so in for Trump.

My apologies to the MSNBC hosts Rachel, Lawrence, Joy and perhaps Chris Hayes, but it is easy to see where the rest of you are.

6. They are in it for Trump because he brings viewers which allows them to jack up ad prices/revenue.

It's all about money for the cable networks.

9. Think about it though.

The election is almost over.They aren't going to rope in any NEW viewers between now and next Tuesday. They already have the horse race all of you have been using as their excuse. Yet, they are still pushing for Trump 24/7
It is beyond the ratings game now.
Any other guesses?

11. I Have a Theory

They know that HRC is going to win. They also know that the asshole repukes are going to do everything they can to make life miserable for HRC and basically every American after she's inaugurated. There will be stupid hearings, manufactured 'scandals,' most likely impeachment hearings and an assault on the Supreme Court by way of refusing to fill any vacant seats.

The MSM is setting the table for four years of negative HRC reporting. They won't make as much money doing the right thing.

18. I like your theory.

It prompts me to expand the boycott of advertisers on their shows (not to mention the shows themselves). I've recently convinced my wife to join in my boycotts too!

As for this razor blade incident, i just want to remind everyone of one word: karma.

4. Good Lord!

This was a deliberate attack on a poll worker - who could have been from either party. Where you let the swamp creatures out and give them some empowerment by goading them on, awful things can happen.

In civilized countries we supposed to try to act civilly, and encourage others to do the same. This sometimes needs laws, and law enforcement, because not everybody gets it.

But for years we've seen the NRA, the GOP, a LOT of public officials, and the alt-right media stoking the fires and standing back to see what happens.

And now Trump has spent the last several months fanning the flames, for no other reason than it gets him accolades from crowds of people who should be watched very, very carefully.

Yikes!

12. Thanks for posting this article.

That is an excellent article.

And as you say - it is now "writ large." Trump's rallies give these "lone wolves" a real sense of purpose, and Trump won't have to take the blame for what anyone does.
