    It doesn't change anything what the question was nor the fact that there was a camera present.

    The attack was unprovoked and the man could have walked away but he didn't, that was his choice. The man created this situation, not the kids.

    If I was a student standing on the street, I wouldn't even expect a Congressman to answer any question I ask but I wouldn't expect to be attacked either.

    Fine and if you get in a situation where people are sticking cameras in your face I hope you act better than this Senator did. However I will not argue that these journalism students were not trying to provoke a reaction. And I bet they are high fiving each other over the reaction they did get.

    You are making quite an assumption about the students. You got that from the question they asked?

    I can tell by what they did. They were trying to provoke a reaction and they got one. And a pretty good one IMO. Have you heard Henri Cartier Bresson talk about the decisive moment? Well these kids achieved it. Kudos to them but if you can dish it out expect it back.

    It is revealed exactly what they were up to when they refused to give their names or school. He first ask them who are you. When the guy doesn't answer him the congressman realizes this is some college kid's prank and then goes after the guy.
    Am not supporting the alcoholic looking congressman but am not shedding tears for the guy's prank mishap.

    Hardly a mishap, they were after a story, and the Congressman moronically handed them a huge one. I would call that a success.

    NOT the kids???

    Not the kids??

    Not the kids??

    What are you, kidding me?

    If those two little assholes weren't there with their camera and dumb-ass question, it would have never happened. Just like the tools in the American flag t-shirts... they went looking for a little trouble and found more than they bargained for.

    That shaking, scared little boy voice gets me every time.... "we're students, sir..." The damn cowards couldn't even give the name of the their school. I'm sure the school appreciates not being associated with these tools.

    I ain't sayin' what Etheridge did was right, but it sure is funny to watch.

    Their presence was not the issue, this is only a story because the Congressman reacted in the manner that he did.

    That shaking, scared little boy voice gets me every time.... "we're students, sir..." The damn cowards couldn't even give the name of the their school. I'm sure the school appreciates not being associated with these tools.

    Scarred or not, the only person who comes out of this looking like a complete idiot is the Congressman.
