Say a vet who had been carrying a handgun for over 10 years without ever drawing it, having provided armed security both privately and as a federal officer, was attacked by two moonbats because they didn’t like the anti-Obama sticker on his truck. Say they ripped the knife off his belt and attempted to use it on him. Say they prevented him from getting in his truck and leaving, and one of them even threatened to shoot him and went to get a gun from his car. Say the vet held him at gunpoint until the police arrived. This is how the media would cover it:
Albuquerque police arrested 43-year-old Chris Williams after they say he held another man at gunpoint…
It all started when the 62-year-old victim saw a bumper sticker on Williams’ truck. He told police it said derogatory things about President Obama. He didn’t know Williams, but wanted to let him know that sticker offended him.
The aggressor — I mean, “victim” — was an Obamunist named Edward Rodriguez.
The victim told Williams he should be ashamed of himself. Williams told police he told the victim to get out of his face, but claims that the victim ignored him and the two began to argue.
It soon escalated to the victim ending up on his knees with his hands up, and Williams allegedly holding the gun to the back of the victim’s head.
APD officers got there just in time… and possible [sic] saved the man’s life.
Please. There is no reason to suggest anyone’s life was in danger but Williams’s. Note the third party has vanished from the story.
For holding off a politically correct assailant, Williams has been charged with aggravated assault and false imprisonment — serious charges that could land him in prison and end his career.
Countermoonbats can draw two lessons: 1) there is always more to the story than what they tell you; and 2) the system is rigged against you.
