    DUNNELLON — A 49-year-old Dunnellon man accused of threatening multiple people favorable to President Donald Trump, was arrested and charged with 10 counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of disorderly conduct by police.

    ...The victims told an officer that a man, later identified as James L. Whitehurst II, had approached them during their peaceful assembly with what was described as a cane sword in hand. The officer was told Whitehurst pointed the sword in their faces and made threatening statements. The sword was allegedly 6 inches from their faces, according to the victims, and they felt afraid.

    Yet another example of attacks directed against Trump supporters.

    In this case, 10 people were assaulted with a sword cane-which is indeed a deadly weapon.

    Thankfully the perpetrator is behind bars.

    *sigh*

    So here's how it will go:

    We'll have one poster saying something like "Whoa this happened six days ago," and go on about that. Another poster - or maybe the same one - will attack the source.

    Then another poster - or maybe the same one again - will call the guy who got arrested a RW plant with no evidence. When the guy is arrested - well, looks like he already was - said poster will vanish from the thread.

    Perhaps another poster will challenge the bravery of said Trump supporters being victims of assault or battery or both, or whatever the guy was charged with.

    Meanwhile, said LW poster(s) will overlook the crimes committed by one of their own and/or make excuses for it.

    This will in no way change the fact that if some Trump supporter had done the same to a bunch of - oh I dunno, Bernie Bros, said LW posters would be going absolutely nuts.

    "Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon"?

    It seems like these are some Perp-Favorable Prosecutors.

    The case was (obviously) UNDER-Charged.

    It was (obviously) 10 Counts of Attempted MURDER.

    Upon Conviction, I would recommend Life Without Parole.

    Hopefully the victims of this heinous crime aren't (irreversibly) psychologically traumatized.

    Hopefully, this Heinous Criminal faces the Full Extent of Justice,

    Godspeed. :salute:

    PS--Your Link is Dated Feb. 6th. (That is 6 Days Ago).

    Why did it take so long for this story to get posted at PF?

    Usually, in cases such as this--that are being pushed by the Pro-Trump Crowd, there are multiple threads started within minutes of the story hitting the wires.

    Why was this Unfathomable Outrage not brought to our attention 6 Days Ago?

    That's one prediction down. C'mon guys - keep it coming!

    ***

    Hey, has anyone in the judicial system asked this bozo why in the world he's walking about with a freakin' cane sword? Is he some kind of cosplay guy or what? Granted, I work in a school so I usually run into knives and sometimes guns. I did once take a tire iron out of a kid's backpack. But a cane sword is a new one.

    I have to say when looking at the provided link, it was the picture of the woman fishing near the bottom of the page and above the "play this for one minute" that drew my eye.

    But the real question is, was he a "right wing plant"? Why are triggered leftists, so violent?

    He's lucky he didn't get shot. 1.5 M people have licenses to carry in FL.

    Looks beautiful, great for bird watching, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking.

    I think I saw an alligator gar in that clip.

    Is it brackish water?

    Good point.

    And every prosecutor in FL would've called it "justifiable" if he had been shot.

    Are you going with "right wing plant"? I'll take, "man attacking Trump voters with a sword cane is very likely a leftist" for 3,000 Alex!

    Farthest thing from it, pure fresh, spring water. The Silver river, in nearby Ocala, is similarly, beautiful.

    So? When you threaten people with a sword in their face, you deserve to get your ass shot. Are you praising Florida prosecutors, or trying to imply they are partisanly, biased?

    I am just stating a FACT.

    If someone had pulled on that guy, and fatally shot him, it would've been ruled "justifiable".

    Wouldn't you agree?
