the lack of 'think' in the left's ideas is apparent;
if his honor the judge is eating at a restraunt, and i walk by the window, trudging down the street, i dont know the guy, nor even what he looks like, but i'll be in violation of the 1000 ft. rule.
sat his honor the judge is coming out of the state fair, and someone decides to pummel him (sound familiar?), and i have to stay 100 feet away, and watch the bad guy beat the judge (or other elected official) up?
does this 1000 ft. rule apply to cops?
and now a mini-rant: i pay taxes damn it, and i expect my officials to be provided with security, all the time, everywhere, so i dont have to provide them with security- ie: my ass- in a crisis moment!
