A man was arrested Sunday after carrying a rifle into a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant that had been at the center of an internet fake news hoax during the presidential campaign, city authorities said.
The man, identified as 28-year-old Edgar Maddison Welch of Salisbury, N.C., possessed what police described as an assault rifle inside Comet Ping Pong, a pizza restaurant in an upscale neighborhood of northwest Washington. Police received a call around 3 p.m. about a man with a weapon, and he was arrested shortly thereafter, said Aquita Brown, a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police Department.
The suspect pointed the weapon at an employee of the restaurant. The employee fled, and the suspect fired a shot inside the establishment, police said. No injuries were reported. Two firearms were recovered at the location, and another in the suspect’s vehicle, police said. The man was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon.
where is the outrage on the right and the Trump Organization???
don’t be cowards speak out against this dangerous Fake News has REAL consequences.
Why was the board silent on this today?
C’mon America…Grow Up…and Speak Out!
Don’t ry to out point one side or the other that is juvenile…the amrk of a 12 year old…this one had REAL action and it could have been deadly.
so drop the political mantles and speak out as a unified group against this.
and pledge to stop posting the cartoons and other BS and garbage from these hate sites…it doent make your point it just makes the case look like hate.
Because it is.
so I say we all commit to calling this out anywhere it occurs.
because if we cannot agree to do this…then we should all be totally fully ashamed of ourselves. for we then have nothing to offer to the betterment of society and the world and that would be pretty disgusting.
Step up and call this out where ever it occurs, not just one side, wherever it occurs. Stop keeping score and start keeping track of how many right actions we take every day for ALL people not just one side!!!
its up to us.
