Nice.

On Monday, the Moorhead Police Department responded to a woman's 911 call over a road rage incident... The woman said she'd been minding her own business when a car pulled up alongside her and a man rolled down his window.

The man, 27-year-old Joseph Schumacher of West Fargo, N.D., started heckling the woman over [her] bumper sticker in support of [Elizabeth] Warren...

Reporting the incident in the gentlest terms possible, the police statement say Schumacher "then pointed to his [Donald Trump] bumper sticker and further expressed his difference in national political views."

...At a certain point, Schumacher allegedly decided to drive home his point by passing the woman and flashing a gun as he pulled away.

...Schumacher was arrested and is being held in Clay County Jail on suspicion of two counts of terroristic threats, a felony. Under Minnesota law, penalties for that crime range from a one-year sentence and/or a $3,000 fine to five years and a $10,000 fine. An additional charge could come for possessing a loaded gun in a vehicle without a permit.



Make America Great Again, dammit, or else!

4 points on the Trumplican dou-che-o-meter !

Yes.. I judge people.
Trump sticker ? Moron.
Confederate flag ? Racist moron.
NRA sticker ? Commie dupe.
Something about guns are awesome ? Dangerous idiot.
some 'saying' attributed to the wrong person ? Complete and utter imbecile.
Aggressive religious stuff ? Annoying.

Double bonus points if it's on a work vehicle with the company name

" suspicion of two counts of terroristic threats"


How the fark does "waving a gun" (IF in fact that actually happened) constitute TERRORISM?????


In NY, "displaying" a weapon in a "threatening" manner constituted "MENACING", an appropriate charge that is NOT even REMOTELY related to TERRORISM.


Liberals are succeeding in removing ANY trace of common sense and, flushing America down the toilet........... argh angry smiley

Conservative guide to gun waving:

Waver is white: Second Amendment in action
Waver is muslim: Terrorist
Waver is hispanic: Illegal Terrorist
Waver is black: stop asking questions and shoot already.

I like how menacing isn't "remotely" related to terroristic threats.

Methinks someone needs to consult a dictionary. Perhaps with assistance.

Bonus points duly awarded for labeling "liberals" (all of them, of course) for ruining the country.

I just can't imagine how such incredible insights of erudite thought would ever lead to say, waving an unregistered gun in public after accosting a private citizen. Or posting in a forum, condoning it.
