This might sound morbid, but that was actually fun to watch, in the sense that it was a would-be assassin getting his butt whipped.

The would be assassin look stunned, shocked when the politician fought back.

A man's ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. - Albert Einstein

I don't think that was a publicity stunt. That guy was getting a severe ass kicking. I don't feel sorry for him - he certainly needs a life coach or three! Why wasn't he just hustled off the stage out the side or the back?

I think he was more shocked by the fact that the gun failed to go off and he knew what was coming next from the others around.

I wonder how long he planned this for? he managed to get  past security, get onto the stage, point the gun in his face and right at the last minute the ....nothing!

i suppose the saying "guns do not kill people" is appropriate here.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I laughed a little, it was comical the look on his face when it all went south on him.  He was well beat up, his face was bloody toward the end, strangely that did not at all dispell my sense of humour. :whistle:  I should feel awful thinking like that but considering he was about to KILL someone in cold blood I am finding it hard to reach deep enough inside to find a sympathy card for him at all.

I thought the kicking he got was brutal.. I never laughed..  I know he did wrong, but the kicking was just WOW.. Words fail me... I guess they call that justice..

We don't know why the guy felt he needed to try and kill the politician either.. Was he going through hard time due to their government? Who knows.

If you had read, Wolverine, you would have found that the gun misfired. The guy would no doubt have taken the wee politician 1v1, but he was too focused on trying to shoot his face when the man was resisting.

I did read that, but I don't know...something about it just seems kind of off there.

They'll all plead temporary insanity and provocation. I think both those were there too.  They were all almost witness to the murder of a man they loved.  They were all in shock and rage that someone got that close and nearly succeeded in an assassination.  The culprit is lucky, if he had succeeded they would have shot him on the spot too.  Of course, you don't go do that if you are not prepared to die so getting beat up would probably be a poor second in his mind anyway.

Attempted genocide. Which you'll find in just about nearly every countries Laws is the only punishable by death and the wrongdoer loses all privilages in doing so, that is just the countries with no death penalty like Australia and such, remains as the ONLY punishable by death crime.

I'm taking it if it was real he'll be on some R&R thinking about his life and wondering was it all worth it. Staring at death by the milliseconds would be Mind shattering to think, I've come close a couple of times to seeing my end I never went in the same as I came out.

But all and all, I took something away from this today, do not go to a Country like germany/bulgeria/russia/yugoslavia and try pull a stunt like that and a expect a handshake and a bed to sleep for the night. In an analogy sense I put it to the same level as a Middle Eastern lady offering oral sex to their parliament in front of a public crowd. GOOOOOOONE!

Are you claiming that assassination attempt is some kind of prelude to a Third World War? Political assassinations happen all the time in countries run by gangsters. As far as I'm aware, political assassinations are highest in Columbia, and have been for quite some time. Just because you hear about one, or because it happened to be caught on film, doesn't mean that there is actually anything different happening in the World.

Look, this bloke just tried - and failed - to kill the man. Luckily his weapon malfunctioned, otherwise we'd have had the scene of a man being shot in the head played instead. So frankly, seeing the assassin getting several size tens delievered to him was violent, but uncalled for?  Not really. You can say that here the man who did the crime is not in any doubt, so getting punched, kicked and undoubtably verbally abused is in no way unexpected. Makes you wonder if it had occured here, and we had the various front bench members leathering seven bells out of the attacker just how quickly lawyers would be shouting to respect the assassin's human rights... Mind you, giving the craven cowards we have as our representitives, they'd instead be hiding behind the first cover and let the security detail do all the hard work.  Must say, it's the old man that gets on the platfrom stage right after the guard ( and only one guard is  keeping the guy down?) that belts the assassin with an umbrella that really sells the madness of it all to me. :tu:

Why didn't the assassin use another method? I mean...obviously, if your face is on tv, there's no way you'll escape. It just doesn't make any sense to me. Why would he want to spend the remainder of his life locked up, or worse?
