From Wikipedia entry “Rand Paul”:
On November 3, 2017, Paul was assaulted by a neighbor, Rene Boucher (then aged 59), a retired anesthesiologist. Paul, who is deaf in one ear, was wearing noise-cancelling headphones while mowing his lawn, enabling Boucher to blindside Paul.
“Rand Paul’s Attacker Gets 30 Days In Prison,” dated 15 June 2018 and by Molly Prince:
The attack left him with six broken ribs, pleural effusion and ultimately pneumonia.
“Rand Paul’s Attacker Officially Sentenced,” dated 16 June 2018 and by Jack Davis:
U.S. District Judge Marianne Battani, who was called in from Michigan to hear the case, called the incident a “dispute between neighbors” and an “isolated incident.” She said it was not motivated by politics.
She urged Boucher, a retired doctor, to move past the incident.
“I know it’s a heavy burden to be a convicted felon, but I hope you can forgive yourself and go on with your life,” she said, according to National Public Radio. “I hope the Pauls can forgive you, but ultimately, that you can forgive yourself.”
From Wikipedia entry “Marianne O. Battani”:
Battani is notable for sentencing Alan Ralsky to more than four years in prison in November 2009. This was for crimes relating to his stock pump and dump spam activities.
She is also notable for sentencing Rene Boucher to only 30 days jail time, a fine, and 1 year probation, for physically attacking sitting Senator, Dr. Rand Paul of Kentucky. The attack left Senator Paul with multiple fractured ribs and contracted pneumonia. Prosecutors had sought a 21-month sentence.
Ask not who’s bitch this is, for this government bitch your ass. Five days per rib. You’d think the attacker had a vagina.
The shadow inquisition is here and gaining strength. You have nothing to gain and plenty to lose by wearing your MAGA hats. Don’t suppose you are living in a free country. Here you’re not free or in a country. To my knowledge not once yet has President Trump engaged the enemy domestic with physical government force, and he is ‘the most powerful man of the free world’. I think he just likes playing executive and deal maker.
