Consider every assault 'attempted murder' and react accordingly.

once someone starts beating on you,how do you know when they will stop?
Is it going to be before you are dead or crippled? Before you lose an eye?
Why should you have to take that risk?
Thus ANY physical assault can be reasonable grounds for lethal self-defense.

If you don't want to get shot,don't attack me.

You are exactly right. Everyone of the protesters that engages in a criminal behavior should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. And it should be done publicly. Let the others see what happens and maybe they'll get the hint.

I was thinking more along the lines of giving them the ol' Trayvon Martin treatment.

yes,because you might not survive to GET to court.

if you're dead,a court trial does you no good.

The Republican controlled Michigan legislature passed right-to-work legislation late Tuesday morning as union members loudly protested inside and outside of the Capitol in Lansing. Michigan Democrat Rep. Douglas Geiss threatened on the House floor this morning "there would be blood" if the legislation passed. Riot police have been on the scene since early this morning bracing for violence.

The Michigan House Democrats reiterated their threat on their Twitter page, but have since deleted it.
