Disturbing Video!

Here's a disturbing video of a congressman, an elected official who is supposed to serve the people, assaulting a college student as the student evidently was trying to get his attention to interview him. No doubt there are more details than the video shows, but the image of a congressman bullying a citizen is very disturbing!



Yes, our country and our leaders desperately need our prayers:
For the government and all who have been set into positions of leadership, that they may use the authority entrusted to them honorably and for the good of the people, let us pray to the Lord: Lord, have mercy.

Disturbing in the right word. Its not the typical 'celebrity takes a swing at the paparazzi' video we've often seen. The Senator's actions have a strange paranoid/controlling edge to them, the antonymy of the glad-handing politician. I'm sure he has had his share of threats against his person, but this is surely not how security briefed him to react.
