Ask Not For Whom the Cuckoo Clock Tolls...

It tolls for thee, Amy Bishop.

In March, 2002, Bishop walked into an International House of Pancakes in Peabody with her family, asked for a booster seat for one of her children, and learned the last seat had gone to another mother.

Bishop, according to a police report, strode over to the other woman, demanded the seat and launched into a profanity-laced rant.

When the woman would not give the seat up, Bishop punched her in the head, all the while yelling "I am Dr. Amy Bishop."

Boston Herald: Kin: Her past should have been a red flag


UPDATE: Continuing the "Gee, ya think???" theme.

Boston Globe: Bishop could have been tried, DA says

Money quote:

Attempts to reach US Representative William D. Delahunt, who was Norfolk district attorney at the time, were unsuccessful yesterday.

Again, with the shocked face.
