Salman Rushdie Stabbed in NYC, Attacker Most Likely To Be Released Thanks To Bail Reform Laws

Author Salman Rushdie, who spent years in hiding with an Iranian bounty on his head, was stabbed in the neck at a literary event in upstate New York Friday when an assailant stormed the stage soon after his introduction. Rushdie, who was scheduled to talk at the Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, N.Y., some 75 miles south of Buffalo, was rushed to a nearby hospital by helicopter, the New York State Police said in a statement. 

Even after all these years, he should’ve never have taken the need for security for granted.
