GLASTONBURY — A 61-year-old man with an "Impeach Obama" bumper sticker on his vehicle was arrested Friday after he used a baseball bat to bash the trunk of another motorist who had given him the finger, police said.

Paul V. Guaschino, of 1149 E. Middle Turnpike in Manchester, followed the motorist who "apparently did not like the bumper sticker and displayed his dislike by showing his middle finger to Guaschino," police said.

So, what would a Treason/Trial/Convict/Sentence bumper sticker do?

It was the middle finger, not the bumper sticker, that led to the stupid attack

I wonder if the bird flipper will be less quick to randomly throw his finger up at people he does not know. You catch an angry person on a bad day and that finger may cost you your head.

Love the sticker. But a finger should not begat a baseball bat attack. A physical attack should cause the sticker owner to bring out the bats etc.

A return bird would have been acceptable and had that precipitated a physical attack, defending himself would be appropriate.

I wonder if all is being reported here?

Sounds like a ‘flip and run’ accident to me. The flipor should be hunted down and prosecuted.

I had a hunch this happened in a gun-free state. It’s not a good idea to be flipping the bird when you don’t know who might be carrying. An armed society is a polite society and all that...

If someone flips you the bird like this the correct response is to just laugh at them. Point and laugh. That ticks them off to no end and you win.

If someone that got flipped off was armed, and shot the flipper, I would say that the armed person wasn’t being polite at all.

Really, you think bashing in someone else's car with a baseball bat is an appropriate response to getting the finger?

The old man is 61 and can claim that he thought the middle finger was a weapon.

In NJ, baseball bat laws are sort of like the gun laws.

Its unlawful to have a baseball bat in your car unless traveling to an organized game. I think the only exception to the rule is if the bat is a “collectable bat”.
