A deputy wants to cut a journalist into pieces

How TIME ONLINE yesterday reported and the video shows, republican US Deputy Michal Grimm from New York refused first to answer the questions of the journalist Michael Scotto from the transmitter NY1, but then came back again and threatened the reporter apparently with the following words, which in the video unfortunately are not clearly understood: “Let me be very clear: if you do that again, I'll throw you from this damn balcony. You are not man enough. I'll cut you to pieces like a little boy. ”

The hubris of the stupid ones?

When I read that and saw, I automatically thought: how stupid is the man? And how much hubris and missing impulse control belongs to such a threat still speak in front of the camera?

We got up Best of HR –® Recently, Resiliency Factor Impact Control and Zinédine Zidane, who at the time cost his team victory with a thoughtless action.

If no punishment, then no learning effect

In the case of Zidane, however, the punishment for the behavior immediately followed, so that perhaps a learning effect could adjust itself.

In the case of Michael Grimm, however, there have been no further reactions so far - there were some press reports, some called the action “unacceptable”.

Dreist is horny

This behavior is obviously cool for Grimm, who is apparently not a blameless sheet either. At Wikipedia you can read that he took part in the first Iraq war as a marine. One can assume that with this Rambo behavior he even thinks himself particularly masculine. And maybe that's why it's even successful.

This is also supported by the fact that he refuses to apologize. At least he is loud ZEIT ONLINE to have been extremely angry, but trying to downplay the matter as a minor offense. Motto: Dreist is cool!

I'm lost for words…
