Reflecting on last year's tackle by Rand Paul supporters

Remember last year when a couple of Rand Paul supporters noticed suspicious behavior?

When police failed to take action - and a suspicious person rushed the candidate - the supporters took action.

There was no gun. No real intent to do physical harm by the activist. But those subduing her had no way of knowing at the time.

Some were quick to protest the "brutality" of the Rand Paul guys.

Flash forward to last weekend in Tucson:

It was also bystander intervention that subdued suspect Loughner.

But only after his magazine was empty.

Perhaps what happened in Tucson will make critics of last year's tackle see what happened then in a more favorable light.
