"As a fellow mid-westerner I have no sympathy for the twat reporter, although I think the politician could have handled it better."

Well, I'm all for law and order. The law says: Misdemeanour assault (had he punched hard enough then it would have been felony assault). To keep order, he needs to be taken to court, charged, and convicted accordingly. And I like the "three strikes out" rule. If he punches another journalist, he'll have to be veeeery careful or risk a life sentence on the third violent offence.
