A Kentucky man who seriously injured Senator Rand Paul in a devastating 2017 assault is set to receive a serious prison sentence after a judge overturned a lenient 30-day prison term he had received for the attack on Monday.
Rene Boucher brutally tackled Senator Paul at his Bowling Green, Kentucky home in November 2017. The libertarian Republican Senator suffered fractured ribs and later had to have a piece of his lung removed as a result of lingering complications from the assault.
Paul’s attorneys had appealed a ruling in which Boucher got away with 30 days in prison for his violent assault, a mere slap on the wrist. Their successful appeal makes it far more likely Boucher will have to serve a real prison term.
Judge Jane Branch of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals explained her reasoning in ordering Boucher to be resentenced. “Federal defendants with a criminal history category of I [the lowest possible level] who were convicted of assault received an average sentence of 26 months’ imprisonment and a median sentence of 21 months. We therefore VACATE Boucher’s sentence and REMAND for resentencing.”
Boucher, who was Paul’s neighbor at the time, claims the brutal assault was motivated over a dispute over a pile of leaves. But it’s known the Kentucky doctor was a staunch leftist with an intense dislike for Senator Paul’s conservative politics.
A two year prison sentence probably won’t be an equivalent to the suffering that Boucher’s brutal and arguably politically motivated ambush caused Senator Paul. Paul was seriously injured for about a year, and continues to suffer lingering complications.
But perhaps a real prison sentence will send a message to politically-motivated fiends who take their policy disagreements to a level where they’re inclined to brutally injure their own neighbors.
BLM Activist Wearing “Justice for Breonna Taylor” T-Shirt Shoots, Kills Three People in Bar Owned by Louisville Ex-Cop
This hasn’t been reported on at all.
A man wearing a “Justice for Breonna Taylor” t-shirt allegedly shot and killed three people at a Louisville, Kentucky bar owned by a retired police officer on Friday night.
33-year old Michael E. Rynes was arrested by Louisville police on Friday after the mass shooting event, in which he allegedly shot three people at random at Bungalow Joe’s Bar and Grill. They all died of their injuries.
Eyewitness accounts describe Rynes as wearing a ‘Justice for Breonna Taylor’ t-shirt when he entered the establishment and began shooting.
Rynes would be arrested by Louisville Police hours after the shooting while hiding in a bush near Bungalow Joe’s. He matched the description given in initial 911 calls regarding the shooting, and possessed a firearm with ammunition used at the bar shooting. The 33-year old Rynes, whose social media contains content expressing his support for left-wing BLM causes and NFL anthem kneeling, was arrested and charged with three counts of murder for his alleged involvement in the shootings.
Rynes was seen smiling in photography of his arrest hours after the bar shooting.
Taylor was a Louisville woman who was shot and killed by police earlier this year during an operation in which they were seeking to apprehend her drug dealer boyfriend. Progressive and BLM activists have sought to publicize the controversial shooting-which remains under investigation by the Kentucky Attorney General- as an alternative to the incidences involving Jacob Blake and George Floyd, both of whom had extensive criminal histories when they resisted arrest for crimes.
“Nobody had ever seen this guy before,” Said restaurant owner and retired law enforcement officer Joe Bishop, referring to the shooter. “It was a totally random act.”
26-year old Toreon Hudson, 48-year old William Smallwood, and 24-year old Steven Head were killed in Rynes alleged shooting rampage. Two of the murder victims were white, and one was black.
This appears to be the latest Black Lives Matter mass shooting, following Micah Xavier’s mass shooting of five Dallas, Texas police officers in 2016. Peculiar that the corporate media has largely ignored the mass casualty event while devoting hours of coverage to the controversial Taylor shooting, which remains under official investigation.
