Do you remember back in 2016, when images of Trump supporters being beaten to bloody pulps were flooding social media?
The mainstream media looked the other way or simply claimed there was violence on both sides.
A North Carolina man is in police custody after he allegedly opened fire on a crowd of supporters of President Donald Trump nearby a road in South Carolina.
The man has been identified as Marquise Damarius Asomani of Charlotte, North Carolina, was arrested Monday after police were dispatched to the area after reports of gunfire from a vehicle.
The Fort Mill Police Department issued a statement explaining the incident and reported no injuries, Breitbart reports.
Police were told by witnesses on the scene that three men had driven by them numerous times making “derogatory remarks and yelling obscenities at them” from their car.
A portion of the statement from Fort Mill Police Department reads:
The victims also stated that, as the vehicle turned from Sutton Road on to the ramp to northbound I-77, the driver of the vehicle continued yelling and then extended his arm through the window, while holding what appeared to be a handgun. The victims further stated that, at that moment, they heard several shots fired, and the vehicle then proceeded northbound on the Interstate.
As the incident was taking place, an SCHP Trooper was approaching the area, observed the activity, and proceeded on to I-77 in an effort to locate the vehicle. Shortly afterward, the vehicle was located, abandoned, in the area of Gold Hill Road and Deerfield Drive.
Charges against Asomani include six counts of Assault & Battery of a High & Aggravated Nature, one count of Unlawful Carrying of a Pistol, one count of Pointing & Presenting Firearms at a Person, and one count of Possession of a Firearm During a Violent Crime.
He is currently “being held, pending the issuance and service of arrest warrants.”
Two other male subjects who had been in the vehicle with Asomani at the time he was arrested were released without charges after further investigation and the recovery of evidentiary material.”
“Everybody was cutting up and having fun and laughing and everybody on 77 was blowing the horns and waving,” Trump supporter Angie Freeman told WSOC-TV. “We had all the windows down because we had all the flags out the windows, and it was very loud and it was four or five shots.”
“You could tell that they slowed down and I just heard, like, ‘Da da da,’ you know just three rapid, what definitely sounded like gunfire,” another Trump supporter, Shawna Winter, who was also present, said. “I think it’s a shame that we can’t show our support for our president.”
Has it ever before in American history been so controversial to support an American president? I mean, an anti-Trump drive-by shooting? Really?
I’d say 2020 can’t possibly get any worse, but something tells me we haven’t even seen the half of it yet.
