    I should note that in Texas, aggravated assault on a public servant is a first degree felony punishable by up to life in prison.

    This lady sounds like she has mental problems.

    I don't mean to take your thread off topic - but thought that you may be a good person to ask.

    Is there a citizenship requirement to be a census worker?

    Or are illegal immigrants allowed to do the job also?

    If not, what proof of status were you required to provide?

    Citizens get preference, but they can hire immigrants authorized to work in the U.S. if there aren't enough citizens. No illegal immigrants. Proof of status requires you to fill out an I-9 like any other job.

    Well that's good.

    Given the Federal government's unwillingness to enforce Federal Immigration Law it is a surprise thought that they would bother to comply themselves. :laugh:

    Honestly? Those people should not be allowed to ever collect any benefits from the government then. She needs a lawyer now? One will not be appointed for her. She needs an ambulance in an emergency? Give us your credit card first. Kids go to school? Good - pay for it.

    That woman sounds like a real nut case to me. I invited the census takers in and politely answered all their questions. I'm glad I didn't have to fill out paper work. Arthritis makes that very difficult.

    It only takes one nut case for the Socialist Agenda to be Validated?

    Sorry, folks...

    I agree that this "person" was way out of line and needs, at the least, therapy.

    But, many of those that had face to face encounters with Census Workers and all of those that got the long form questionaire were asked questions that had nothing to do with the Constitutional Mandate of the Census.

    And, what with no repercussions for loss or exploitation of your Personally Indentifiable Information...

    There is no way I would invite a total stranger in my home and answer questions about income, employment or firearms.

    Of course they did acquire GPS cooridnates of every front porch they visited so that if they didn't like the answers back inside the beltway they could more easily send a drone for you when it hits the fan.

    I have a feeling that had this nut case wanted to hit the census worker that worker would be dead... So, maybe the actual charge is a bit heavier than truth?

    Doesn't assualt require actual "contact"?

    Paul, what's the point of your posts on this thread?

    Of course, the perp is a nutjob, and ought to go to jail for the full extent of punishment.

    But what's the point? Are you trying to justify everything asked on the census? Are you trying to say they have a hazardous jbo and deserve more pay? What exactly are you driving at? Not trying to minimize the wacko's criminal behavior--they ought to have the book thrown at them. But it seems there's an ulterior motve behind your posts on this particular thread.

    Paul was a census worker, so he feels the pain of all census workers. If he found an article about someone that was in gifted class in middle school, he's post that as well, since he feels the pain for all gifted students.

    Now I've gotten tickled...I looked at the title of the thread again:

    "Lawyer allegedly fired at census worker"

    Man, that's pretty dangerous. Some of those high-caliber, hollow-point lawyers can cause some real damage.

    I just want to know where you buy a gun that fires lawyers. Are they expensive?

    Furthermore, why would you waste a perfectly good lawyer on a census worker? (easy, now, just kidding...)

    :D :D :D

    This lawyer really needs so serious time if she is found guilty.

    Maybe he's just providing a link to a bizarre human interest story.

    When one large group of people (the Census workers) interact with another large group of people (the general public) things like this often happen. There are people who need mental help from all walks of life and across all of the political spectrum.

    At least this worker was not hurt, and this woman is off the street. And, hopefully, she will get some mental help as well.
