Late last month, Wyoming state Rep. Bob Nicholas (R) was arrested following an incident where he kicked and beat his disabled son outside of a restaurant




full story



IMO this is another sign of how low we have become as humans, when this man keeps his seat as state rep!
Sad times we live in.

Terribly disturbing.
That is a reason to give sociopath tests to politicians as
some ATS have surmised.

* interesting side note: I did a quick search and found
nothing about this on FOX news. Hmm.

The document indicates that multiple witnesses outside of a restaurant saw Nicholas hit his son repeatedly with a closed fist, push him onto the sidewalk and then kick him more than five times.

Yea I'd say that was excessive, regardless of your political affiliation.

Nicholas explained his behavior by saying his son, who has a condition similar to autism, was being combative during lunch, and that he needed “corporal punishment.” He has no intentions of resigning. “I don’t think I committed a crime, so why would I?” he said.

Now that is a little over the top imo, and speaks volumes about his personal perspective. And I don't think corporal punishment includes closed fist punches and 5 kicks to a person on the ground either.

Well what a S.O.B. a true repub who believes in corp punishment. making himself look like a complete backwards human being. Why would he resign when he cant comprehend a menal disabilty. I wonder if that was taught in his sunday school.

Yeah thats disgusting. That poor child is innocent and probably didn't know what he was doing. That and beating a mentally disabled child physically is just wrong. It makes the child have a hard time coping with life and it grows up with problems in the end. To boot the kid is already having a hard enough time. Poor boy... he should be taken away from that man and put in a better home.

A sergeant reported a small blood stain on a bedspread in the room and observed that the victim had redness and welts on his neck and a foot-sized abrasion to the skin around his left ribcage that appeared to have a shoelace pattern to it, the report says.

Nicholas explained his behavior by saying his son, who has a condition similar to autism, was being combative during lunch, and that he needed “corporal punishment.” He has no intentions of resigning. “I don’t think I committed a crime, so why would I?” he said.


What a flaming ***hole. Not only was the abuse disturbing, but his attitude - he needs "corporal punishment". A 19-yr old mentally-disabled person needs "corporal punishment". This "man" is a maggot and voters who keep him in office the ones who are mentally challenged.

And how is this a political issue? What does his political affiliation have to do with him being a useless degenerate? Plenty of those of EVERY political stripe.

Hearing that this was a GOP scum, he was probably just reading his bible too much that day as the psychopath 'god' of the bible hates mentally disabled people:

[color=limegreen]21:16 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
21:17 Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.
21:18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
21:19 Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,
21:20 Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;
21:21 No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.
21:22 He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy.
21:23 Only he shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar, and thus desecrate my sanctuary.

POS bible for you. That book isnt even good enough to be used as firewood or toilet paper.

Well Dedpope I read he was nineteen but seeing mentally challenged people most of them are but children both in heart and mind. They don't know anything of reality and act like a child because they are incapable of understanding no matter how much they may "WANT" to understand and do good. All those kind of children want is someone to give them attention and care and to teach them what they "CAN" learn. Love and smile and show them they can do "SOMETHING" with themselves even if it isn't but walk and possibly throw hoops onto a simple hoop ring. Without purpose us as humans become miserable and horrid people who have no other desire but to portray the hatred we felt in life. I would hate to see this child or nineteen year old boy grow up that way. I know I was mentally abused and to some degree I guess you could call my spankings with a flyswatter and my hands being slapped with a ruler for picking up a pencil and about to write something on a piece of paper for math homework light physical abuse but still. I grew up rebellious and in a bubble and even now at age 22 I have a hard time coping with life period. I just don't want to see anyone have to grow up hating the world around them. When it shouldn't be the world, or the people but their actions. Come on now... we all should show love and consideration to those who are misunderstood. Whether it is by mental disability, weirdness, or even to some degree morbidness. We look at monsters with disgust but do we ever take the time to say "WELL S**T I CREATED THAT BEAST!!!" Nope... no one wants to take the blame, no one wants to show the love.

>,> Of course.... then again I am more concerned for the nineteen year old.... the older man should be put in a institution and on meds. But hey... what I wanna know. Is this a real article? LOL Your talking sounds like its more for putting the man away then for the child.

well , putting him away would be for the boy. if that is how he treats him in public what do you think happens at home ? So, put the man away & get the boy to family that will treat him right.

And we continuously put these guys in charge over us....


Ya know, when I was in law enforcement, they gave us a psych exam. After 500 questions that repeated themselves in so many diffrent ways (to assure you are not lying), and after sitting with a shrink for a half hour, they determin if you're allowed to remain or continue in Law Enforcement. They do this to try and weed out the loose cannons.. Why cant we do this with our elected officials? Like police officers, they should be held to a much higher standard.. and since they run the country... an even GREATer standard....

I say we bring in a hell of alot of accountability and hold them to that under penalty of imprisonment. Maybe that'll change their tune... The same for big business... They can pay, or they faulter in abundance in ways that will ruin the ecconomy or affect peoples lives, they should be held to the exact same standard, and we should make examples of them often!
