Not sure if this belongs here, but Mods please move if necessary.
So i picked my son up from school right after they had an "Active Shooter" drill at his public middle school. That is a topic of its own, but after we
drove to our local grocery store to get some items we were missing for dinner. Outside the store, about 100 feet from the entrance, was a group of
people protesting Trump for this most recent hypocrisy with Ukraine. As I'm walking in with him my son points to them and asks what they are doing,
and I told him it's not appropriate to point at people so directly and to keep moving into the store. Well one of them, a woman who I assume was in
her 20s/30s, obviously interpreted what she thought I said (I was 50+ feet away) and my hand motions as affront to what they were doing. So she yells
over at me "Hey Baldy!" (I'm Bald and a 6'7" white man) "If you have something to say you can say it to our faces!" Now I'm not one to cause conflict,
especially with my son around, so I tried the usual wave and said "I'm sorry, I just told him it was not polite to point at others, I didn't say
anything offensive to or about you or them."
Normally this would be the end of it, but she obviously didn't believe me. So I apologized for HER confusion and started walking in with my son, when
she shouted "I'm sorry your dad is such a coward!" Now at this I got mad, not that she called me a coward, but that she addressed my son directly and
used him, in my view, as a weapon to get to me. So I yelled back that I was reporting her to the manager to have them removed from the property for
harassment. To this she picked up a coconut, ran up and threw it into my back (I live in Miami, FL now). At first i had no idea what it was until I
turned around and saw it rolling away and her only 10 feet from me. Now it hurt, and at that point I knew I had the upper hand as I could call the
cops and have arrested for assault, as we were still in the parking lot and obviously someone else saw it too. She started yelling "What are you going
to do!?! Hit a women!?!" and I damn near lost it. So I tell my son to stand next to the nearest parked SUV, then I turn and start walking towards her
with an obvious look of anger to confront her and threaten to call the police (again I'm 6'7" and 280lbs). At this this she turns and runs and screams
"He's attacking me!!" and within 2 seconds she runs right into a car backing up that hits her!!! Obviously she gets knocked down and starts yelling
"Look! He's trying to kill me!!!" At this point I'm actually concerned about her health so i ask her if she is OK, to which she starts crying
hysterically and screaming "HELP!"
Now at this point I'm getting worried I might somehow be in trouble, and my son is looking on this whole time shocked.
So I decided not to get any closer and thought the best i can do is go in and report the incident. So as I'm going back to my son I look and BAM there
is an officer standing next to him just beyond my view behind the SUV. i froze as he came walking up to me, thinking for sure this is going to somehow
be my fault and I'm getting arrested with my son right there, so i just shook my head. The officer came up to me pointed to his body camera and said
"Saw the whole thing, just didn't want to leave your boy there alone. Would you like to press charges sir?" To this I said no, but they obviously need
to be removed for public disturbance. He then gives me his card, tells me to call if I changed my mind, and then walked over and cuffed the woman. She
started bawling harder, pleading with the officer that she had done NOTHING wrong, and that once again the police are protecting the "white" man. The
officer once again pointed to his body camera and said "Well ma'am, we will see what the judge says after they review the recording. She IMMEDIATELY
stopped crying and just looked down, knowing she was screwed. From there it goes how you would expect, we get the food, go home, tell my wife and two
other sons what happened and laughed about it as being just too unreal.
It just seems so on par with the climate today, the left screams at everyday Americans, chastising them, then tries to bait them into conflict. And
when they get caught, well then they are innocent bystanders who everyone else is against and are oppressed for their virtue. All I know, regardless
of your beliefs, is that some divine intervention occurred to have the car back up JUST then and that the officer, who was on a lunch break getting a
sandwich, was also JUST there at THAT time with a BODY CAMERA. In any other situation i'm pretty sure I would have been arrested for nothing, but
someone, or something was looking out for me.
Anyway, thought I had to share that as again it perfectly seems to describe what we are living with today in our great country.
Oh, and from someone on the ground here, Cubans LOVE Trump and are well aware of the Democrats/Lefts corrupt Bull$hit.
P.S: To the REAL Democrats out there, I'm sorry your party has been hijacked, you are GREAT people and these corrupt a$$holes are giving you a bad
name. You are always welcome in the middle.
