    Bullet that hit Va. congressman's office random

    RICHMOND, Va. — Richmond police say the bullet that hit a window of Republican Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor's office had been randomly fired skyward.

    Amid reports of threats and vandalism against Democrats who voted Sunday for sweeping health care reforms, Cantor said at a Washington news conference Thursday that a bullet was fired into his Richmond office.

    In a news release, Richmond police said that the bullet had been fired into the air early Tuesday. It hit the front window of a building that houses Cantor's campaign office as it fell to back earth at a sharp angle.
    The round landed on the floor of the office a foot inside a broken window pane. No one was in the building, and police say an investigation has yielded no suspects.
    I shot an arrow into the air
    It fell to earth, I know not where
    But something is sure to hit the fan
    'Cause GOP claims attack on Republican



    Seriously, though, with all the crap that has been happening in the last few days, I don't blame Cantor for thinking a Democrat did this on purpose. But he should have waited for the police report to come out before sticking his foot in his mouth. LOL.

    Does that mean Chappy was right? If so, I apologize for my response.

    Not unless you want to count for technicality. If so then I guess he was right.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Amazing that a skyward fired bullet that returned at a sharp angle was able to hit the vertical window of a political HQ building at this precise moment in history. What are the odds?

    No. Chappy suggested it was someone trying to shoot a Democrat office and actaully just hit a republicans. This looks like someone was shooting mindlessly in the air and it hit it. At least on the initial report.

    Did Cantor actually blame this on "Democrats" or did he simply say that there are others besides just democrats that recieve percieved threats or attacks?

    Don't know, but that is what is in at the police report.

    In other words this was pretty much the same situation that happened to Lou Dobbs a few months back.

    What happened to Lou Dobbs. Either I didn't hear about it, or I can't remember it, which is a more likely possibility, given my age. LOL.

    Shooting into the air is not mindless. Perhaps he felt forsaken and was pissed at the man upstairs?

    Also, the congressman should into new gun regs for his district...

    Pretty much my thoughts. A staggering coincidence, if it is one. But it has to be, right? I mean, doing that on purpose (firing in a parabolic arc and hitting your target window) is kinda like kicking your toolkit at your car and fixing the brakes.
