Nevada state Rep. Steven Brooks (D) expelled, chased, cornered, tased, punched, arrested. In one day.

I believe that ‘expulsion’ usually is not intended to be meant quite so… literally.

Police chased a former lawmaker on a freeway between Las Vegas and Los Angeles and arrested him at gunpoint following a struggle, hours after he became the first person ever expelled from the Nevada Legislature.

Steven Brooks was jailed in California’s San Bernardino County after being subdued with punches and a Taser. Police alleged he attacked a police dog with a wrench.

The AP managed to not mention Brooks’ political affiliation (Democrat) until the fourth paragraph, although to be fair: the phrase ‘attacked a police dog with a wrench’ can reasonably seen as being an irresistible lure for reading further.  At any rate, this should be a fascinating HBO movie in a couple of years.  Assuming, of course, that they can figure out some way to get some skin in it.

    The man repersents North Las Vegas. Nevada. Of course it will have skin in it. So much skin, that five part mini will be called: “Brooks’ Skin”

    Neurological or pharmaceutical, for sure, I would say…. How unfortunate for him.
    Now, will there be a special to replace him, and who do the republicans have to put up in it? (Not that I expect the names to mean anything, just wondering about the state of the party there.)

    Am I the last human on earth who knows how to stop a dog attack with his hands, hint you got to be quick and grab the snout. You squeeze and they can’t close their mouth for fear of having no air, they lack the consciousness to know if they bite your fingers off they will be able to breath. They might break your skin but that’s gonna happen anyway if they bite you. Once you have they nose flip them over grab their throat get real close and growl. Worked everytime so far. 40 some years now.
