‘Fox News–Obsessed’ Man Threatens Girlfriend

Miss Manners warns never to discuss religion and politics, but with this election, that’s easier said than done. Call it a symptom of our divided nation: a Florida man was arrested this week for threatening to murder his girlfriend for being a liberal. According to the arresting officer, David A. Kappenheim said that “he was very conservative, and his girlfriend was liberal, and he felt he was going to have to kill her.” Kappenheim had made three previous attempts on his girlfriend’s life before this arrest on charges of domestic battery, domestic assault, and criminal mischief. The Florida deputies said a search of Kappenheim’s home revealed that he was “obsessed with Fox News and the Republican party.”
