    actually he was found

    the jerk saw himself and is ashamed of what he saw

    he now sounds contrite

    while he is not a victim, he does deserve an opportunity to demonstrate by his subsequent actions that he has figured this out

    What the guy did was absolutely wrong and dispicable. I applaud the OP and Justabubba for being relatively human, objective, and non-hypocritical in not condoning what he's done but acknowledging its just as bad if he's getting threats and other sort of things as anyoen else.

    To those that are cheering on him being "hunted" or saying he deserves what he's getting, could we maybe get a list of what things you think are worthy of being harassed and/or threatened? Some of those in this thread complaining about it seem to be the same sort who complained about some lunatics reportedly shouting obsenities, or the attrocity in Virginia, both of which are wrong, and yet because this guy did something admittedly horrible (though in no way physically damaging) somehow he should be "hunted" down? Forgive me if I don't believe your attempted acts of "compassion" the least bit, it makes it obvious its all politics for you.

    You know, everybody here knows how I feel about "teabaggers", but to be quite honest, compared to what you are advocating, I wouldn't mind sitting down and having a cup of tea with them.

    Hatred works both ways, you know. Maybe you should just stop and think a minute or two, so you can realize what you just said. If you can't do that, then I don't believe you are in any kind of position to criticize this guy. Like Christ said, there are plenty of people who point out the mote in the eyes of others, while ignoring the beam in their own eye.
    Sometimes a person's actions cross the line to the point where I (a mortal sinner) cannot except their apology. Especially when the apology seems to stem from their own fear, instead of a change of heart. Let him be found. Killing him would be going too far. Just bruise him a little.

    Wow, advocating criminal behavior. This forum is really going downhill tolerating this kind of poster.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yeah -- let's beat someone up because he yelled at a guy and tossed dollar bills in his direction. What is the problem with you people?

    The guy was a 60 year-old nuclear engineer who chose to give the anti-obamacare crowd a piece of his mind.

    I think he can f'ing take care of himself - he doesn't need you or anyone else acting like he is some kind of mentally retarded child in need of your protection. Jeez.

    You know, wishing harm on people we disagree with is not very helpful on either side of the aisle. "I hope he gets found" isn't any better than all the gun-related rhetoric we're seeing from the right.

    It is in fact a response to the other side. There are consequences for what we do.

    I don't just disagree with the man in the OP. I despise him. Too bad. He should have thought out his moves beforehand.

    If you're using that line of logic then you could say the actions of today are the repressed anger from the actions of war protestors or even more recently reaction to union members at the town hlls.

    And on and on...

    One guy being a jackass doesn't mean you're right for advocating actual, legitimate, physical violence against him.

    Oh noes the left-wing is advocating organized violence

    LIBERALS = TERRORISM
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    If the guy is going to make a fool out of himself by heckling a person, then they shouldn't be surprised when they themselves get heckled.

    Further than that though, I don't condone "hunting" him down or threatening him in any manner. That is just stupid IMO and doesn't serve good to any cause or person.
