For once, a Democrat lawmaker has finally been forced to come face-to-face with America’s criminal justice system.
That Democrat is New Hampshire state Rep. Katherine Rogers, who reportedly bopped outspoken Second Amendment activist Susan Olsen on the side of her head during a state Senate recount process last November.
“Olsen said that she and Rogers were sitting near each other watching the officials who were counting the ballots, and at one point, Olsen asked the counters to move the ballots closer to her so she could see them better,” local station WMUR reported around that time.
Rogers then “turns to me and grabs me with one hand and starts to lean in to me like she was going to hug me and basically says, ‘You know, well whatever makes you happy,'” Olsen recalled. “Then she clocked me on the side of the head.”
“After telling her that I would have her arrested if she touched me again, she leans in to me and says, ‘Hit me, go ahead, hit me, I know you want to. No, what you want to do, you want to shoot me,'” Olsen added.
Crazy, violent woman on aisle Democrat …

Rogers was eventually charged with simple assault, a misdemeanor, as noted by WMUR.
Now fast forward to late December, when a local judge sentenced the violent woman to one year of probation and mandated she attend anger management classes and pay fines, according to the New Hampshire Union Leader.
Judge Kristin Spath specifically said that Rogers “would avoid jail time … as long as she stays out of trouble during the next year,” the Union Leader explained.
As annoying as it may be to see Rogers get a lightweight sentence, keep in mind that it would take only one screw-up for her to be tossed into jail.
Plus, this sentence still beats the one given to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Hint: Clinton has never been convicted, let alone sentenced, despite her history of criminal behavior.
Regarding Olsen, she was adamant Rogers’ behavior had been part of a concerted scheme to provoke a physical response from her that Rogers could then use to discredit the gun rights movement, according to the Orange County Register.
It’s like whenever someone talks garbage about President Donald Trump and he responds by lashing out on Twitter. Instead of blaming the person who attacked Trump, the media always excoriate the president for fighting back.
Luckily, Olsen apparently kept her cool, and the only one who wound up being exposed during that altercation was Rogers, a woman whom the OC Register noted was named “Humane Legislator of the Year” in 2017 as per her efforts toward stemming animal cruelty.
Um, but what about her efforts toward promoting human-on-human cruelty and violence?!
Yeah, that’s what I thought ….
