From the “What the Hell is Wrong with People” department:  The report of Jodie Marie Burchard-Risch’s assault of another customer at the Coon Rapids Applebee’s was pretty disturbing — Burchard-Risch started yelling at her, threw a drink on her and then smashed her in the face with a beer mug because she didn’t like that she wasn’t speaking English.  Clearly doesn’t get the concept that she doesn’t rule the world, and that her rights end at someone else’s nose.  It seems that the management at Applebee’s handled it well, tried to eject her, and then after the assault followed her until she was arrested.

There’s a gofundme site for Asma who was attacked.

Here’s something important — this Burchard-Risch woman is really a peach.  Check out all the alcohol and traffic charges and convictions.  This is at least a 2nd assault, and also likely alcohol is a factor here.  There’s an established pattern of behavior, and she’s someone in need of treatment.  She’s way off the charts:

Jodie Marie Burchard Risch – Minnesota Criminal Record

Hope the prosecutor and judge push for a stint in jail and a long probation and mandatory treatment.

    She owns four guns, is a good Christian and is a committed Republican. She also believes in the right to life, is all for freedom of expression (in English of course) and is very tolerant of other views.

  2. Ann Says:

    This is a side effect of too much tea (partying) and alcohol.

    Tea (party) puts the hate in, alcohol lets it out.

    People like this are very costly to society, as you well know.

    You guys missed her 2013 DWI conviction:


  4. Meg Says:

    Well, if this woman gets any less than 10 years just based on her threat to the non muslim population while she is gallivanting and wreaking havoc then there’s definitely something wrong with the justice system. The woman will be scarred for life (physically), her children terrorized and at the end of the day I’d bet you 10 bucks if this woman offered an apology and goes in for ‘treatment’, the muslim will forgive her.

  5. Josey Says:

    She’s definitely no peach but, judging by the hate-filled posts here, none of the people who read this piece of shit blog are peaches either.

  6. Carol A. Overland Says:

    Hope you soon learn the distinction between outrage at and intolerance of hate and hate based assault, battery and terroristic threats!
