Last week a Minnesota state representative got a taste of his own medicine didn’t seem to care for the taste all that much:
Police are investigating after a state representative reported being robbed at gunpoint on a St. Paul street Thursday night.
Rep. Dennis Smith, R-Maple Grove, was not injured in the robbery at Grand Avenue and Milton Street, police said.
“A gentleman approached me and he had a gun out, asked for my wallet and my phone and I agreed. And I was able to walk away safely,” Smith said Friday morning.
So Mr. Smith was taxed.
Honestly, I can’t bring myself to have many ill feelings towards the mugger. Whether intentionally or accidentally, the mugger found the one person who deserves to be mugged, another person who professionally mugs people. It’s kind of like inter-gang warfare. If gangs keep their violence to themselves I don’t care all that much.
