Pair Gets 30 Days Each For Levin Pie Attack

GRAND RAPIDS (AP) – Two recent college graduates have been sentenced to 30 days in jail for putting a pie in the face of U.S. Sen. Carl Levin. Ahlam Mohsen and Max Kantar were handed over Tuesday to U.S. marshals after their sentencing in federal court in Grand Rapids.

Mohsen says she put an apple pie in Levin’s face a year ago to protest his positions on foreign policy.

The crust was removed to eliminate any physical harm.

The incident occurred at a Big Rapids deli where the Democrat was meeting with constituents. It’s 50 miles north of Grand Rapids.

The 23-year-old Mohsen graduated with honors from Michigan State University. The 24-year-old Kantar is a graduate of Ferris State University. He read a statement at the public forum before Levin was hit with pie.

    Since no conceivable injury could possibly have resulted from the pie-in-the-face, it cannot reasonably be considered ‘assault’. Rather, it was merely an emphatic expression that resulted in the politician being inconvenienced. Anyone who thinks it was ‘assault’ is either exploiting it for their own agenda, or is simply a wimp. Laugh it off, let it go, and move on.

      Assualt with a pastry weapon.

      This is a nation where video recording police misconduct on a public street is now deemed ‘wiretapping’.

      Congratulation to the 9/11 conspirators, who changed the First Amendment into a list of acts of domestic terrorism.

    I always liked the Parliaments where folks come to blows over their beliefs, I think it is a Healthier form of Government, and30 days LOCKED UP for a PIE is beyond harsh, Public Service? Sure…Civil Protest has its risks and they don’t lock up the idiots that snarl traffic for hours laying in the street demanding rights for illegal aliens, it’s just a PIE!!!!!!.
