Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has five rib fractures after being assaulted by a neighbor at his Kentucky home. The attack was likely motivated by politics. Assaulting a member of Congress is a federal crime, and the incident is being investigated by Capitol Police and the FBI.

On today’s show, Doc and Kal talked about the assault and how political motives affect people, whether they decide to attack their neighbor or go into a church and shoot worshippers. Washington continues to divide us.

“We have different ideas on how to fix those things,” Doc said of conservatives, progressives and other ideological groups. Sometimes people react with violence because they delude themselves into thinking that the only one to go forward is to take out those who disagree with them.
