Wow, great, I\'m glad the courts dealt with him in a hurry - not. These charges relate to only 3 incidents in 2011, 2013 and 2015. What about all his other psychotic outbursts? The times when he was brandishing his gun on the streets and in the Parliament building. What about when he physically attacked the French female journalist? And the list goes on and on. Slap on the wrist as usual. He\'s a menace to society and should be in a straight jacket. And oh the irony, that he\'d accused the students of being on drugs.
