1. There is a civil and human rights enhancement

of 2 to 10 years. Quite a reach, but a possible avenue for more serious penalties? Misd. assault max is 6 months in county jail.

4. Will be interesting

Tio see what happens.

Hopefully beating up reporters will not become the new normal.

5. I'm guessing there will be a civil suit - and there should be.*
