The news is out: [Ohio has long been a battleground state in presidential elections. Sometimes that’s literal. A 69-year-old man allegedly attacked an 84-year-old acquaintance over a sign for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Defendant Melvin Wallace was formally charged Monday, according to The Columbus Dispatch.
The alleged victim was said to have been taken for treatment at Coshocton Regional Medical Center. The 84-year-old sounded annoyed in 911 audio obtained by WJW, saying “I had a guy come down here and just kick the living daylights out of me.” The dispatcher asked if he wanted paramedics there.
“Well, no, I think I’m all right, but this guy is an idiot,” he said. The man told her that the confrontation was over a political sign.
It was for Biden.]
Ah! the US, where stupidity is a virtue.
