Wife hits husband with SUV after argument over Wisconsin recalls (It has come to this)
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ^ | 05/09/2012 | By Jesse Garza

Posted on 05/09/2012 6:45:53 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

A Chippewa Falls man who repeatedly tried to block his estranged wife from driving to the polls Tuesday was hospitalized with head, neck and back injuries when she struck him with her sport utility vehicle.

Jeffrey Radle, a Gov. Scott Walker supporter, was on foot.

Amanda Radle, a recall proponent, was in a Dodge Durango.

The pair had been arguing early Tuesday afternoon over who she was going to vote for in the gubernatorial recall election primary, said Chippewa Falls Police Chief Wendy L. Stelter.

"She was planning on voting for a certain candidate, and it wasn't the candidate he wanted her to vote for," Stelter said.

When Amanda Radle, 30, attempted to pull out, Jeffrey Radle, 36, stood in front of her, according to a police department statement. She nudged him with the vehicle several times.

Each time he would "retreat and re-establish his ground," the release said. "At one point he climbed onto the hood."

When she finally attempted to drive around him, Jeffrey Radle jumped in front of the vehicle and was hit. Aman da Radle left the scene and went to the police department to report the incident, the release said.

"These crazy liberal nuts are always pulling this crap," said Radle's brother, Mike Radle, describing himself and his brother as firm supporters of Walker, the subject of the recall.

Mike Radle said his brother was in stable condition but had suffered serious injuries and was still unconscious Tuesday afternoon.

"He'll be in the hospital at least overnight," he said.

Stelter would not confirm whether Jeffrey Radle was still being treated.

Get a felony conviction on the wife a.s.a.p. There will be one less vote for the union thugs in June.

Justifiable.
The husband had no business trying to stop his wife from voting, even if she was voting stupidly.

Agree 100% Little Ray. As much as I support Walker, the idiot wife had every right to vote.

THIS is what comes of giving women the right to vote!

Women,as a group, do have a history of voting for socialists and “bad boys”,i.e. looks and charisma over character.

No offense to the injured man and best wishes for his full recovery, but this looks like a clear-cut case of Evolution at Work. Any man fool enough to stand in front of his wife when she’s angry and behind the wheel of a motor vehicle is just begging to be selected out of the gene pool.

During large family gatherings (e.g. Thanksgiving and Christmas), my Grandpa and Grandma always tell everyone that we can talk about any topic except one — POLITICS.

It always destroys the mood of a happy family reunion.

Reason 5,287 liberals should not be allowed to reproduce
at all. They have absolutely nothing to contribute to the

Let’s not assume he was attempting completely to prevent her from voting.

Hitting him with a lethal weapon is attempted homicide. Do you seriously think that prolonging a marital argument over politics is grounds for killing a person, or disabling or maiming them for life?

She should be prosecuted to the max.

After two previous failed marriages, a failed "long-term domestic partnership," and with her biological clock running out, Matalin gave up trying to find a good man and settled for one with a pulse?

This whole article immediately reminded me of the scene in War Of The Roses where the wife gets into her truck and runs over hubby's beloved car. (Said hubby was not in the car at the time.)

I do wonder what might have happened, in this case, if the wife called a cab instead. Was taking the bus an option? (Liberals really like buses. And light rail.)

Good job.

We should ALWAYS ask ourselves WHY a particular news piece is written like it is, and what EMOTIONS the “author” is trying to promote.

The media is TOTALLY dishonest — NEVER FORGET!

Nope. Still his fault.

People have to take consequences for their actions.

In his case, the man was standing in front of an SUV driven by a woman determined to go somewhere, and refusing to move. Dropping the “stopping her from voting part” just makes the man d@mn stupid. If he had been blocking a door or something similar, he could have potentially been up on charges (after she tazed him and pepper sprayed him...).

Unless his wife was drunk or otherwise impaired, the man had no business trying to stop her.

What, being a liberal voter doesn't automatically qualify as "impaired"? ;)

BTW, I agree with you. Just thought I'd chip in some humor.

Why did she leave the scene? To block out any data recorder?

She is a liberal, by self definition she should call the police to bail her out.

Correct.

However, the headline says she hit him with an SUV.

She must be an awfully large woman to pick up and swing an SUV.

You do have to believe enough of it.

Why are we assuming that THIS politically charged article is telling the truth?

Sorry, I disagree. What he did what stupid, and in some states might even be illegal. But she had other options. She could have gone inside until he left; she could have called the cops to make him leave, etc. So while I agree he did not have a right to try to prevent her from voting, that did not make her "justified" to use deadly force against him. I have no sympathy for him, but she still needs to be held to account for her actions as well. She should be charged with assault with a deadly weapon and possibly mayhem.
