Ex-Senator Injured in Chicago Mugging

CHICAGO - Former U.S. senator and presidential candidate Carol Moseley Braun suffered a broken wrist when a mugger tried to steal her purse, authorities said Saturday.

Braun, 59, was standing at her front door late Friday when an assailant came out of the bushes and tried to take her purse, said her spokesman, Kevin Lampe. When Braun resisted, the man pulled a knife and cut the strap of the purse.

What? She resisted???

Bad liberal!!!

What the hell happened to "just give your attacker what he wants"?

After all, it's just a fucking purse, right?

I mean, Don't get me wrong. I'm glad she's going to be OK, but wasn't all that gun control in Chicago, some of the most stringent in the nation, supposed to make the residents of Chicago safer?

Or was that "feel safer"?
