We’re all aware of how deranged the liberals can be, but this doesn’t exactly absolve them of any crimes they commit. One of Rand Paul’s staffers will likely have the scars to attest to it for the rest of his life.
After he was brutally stabbed by an attacker at one of the Kentucky senator’s events, his family kept quiet for a long time, only recently releasing a statement on the attack and updating us on their son’s condition.
No parent should go through this
Thankfully, one of his friends managed to get in the way of the attacker and prevent him from killing his target. While Phillip Todd managed to get away with a couple of stab wounds and a fracture to his skull, his recovery won’t be a quick one.

Todd’s parents are thankful to the highly-trained medical staff who saved their son’s life and they’re hoping his young age will aid him in his recovery, no matter how challenging it may end up being.
They were appalled that the attack was completely random. What’s more, it was committed by a repeat offender, who’d only just been released from federal prison, despite having a long record of serious crimes.
The man in question, Glynn Neal, had been dealt with professionally by the hands of the Washington D.C. Police Department; the first responders did a great job at saving Todd’s life on the scene, without ever putting his life in danger.
UPDATE: The Rand Paul staffer who was “randomly and brutally” stabbed in DC this weekend is expected to make a full recovery, per his parents.
Phillip Todd underwent trauma surgery to address his wounds, and will need non-invasive neurosurgery to address a skull fracture.

Crime rates in Washington D.C. on the rise
The family also expressed their thanks to Senator Paul, who visited Phillip along with his chief of staff to encourage his recovery.
In Washington DC, crime rates have continued to go up, prompting the House Oversight Committee to have city officials testify on the general oversight of crime, safety, and management in our nation’s capital.
Meet Glynn Neal.
He was just released from prison Friday night before he brutally stabbed Phil Todd, Rand Paul’s staff member.
He spent nearly 12 Years behind bars for forcing 2 NC women to engage in prostitution through the use of threats.

Unfortunately, Todd wasn’t the first nor the last victim of these random attacks. With the Biden administration fighting hard to keep these criminals OUT of jail, we’re bound to see dozens more of these attacks until some things are changed.
The US capital’s crime rates are disgustingly high and it’s a testament to just how ineffective the left is at doing its job.This article appeared in The Record Daily and has been published here with permission.
