Trump supporter briefly detained in El Paso after reportedly carrying gun, knife

OH NO! ... wait... it's still perfectly legal to do both of those things in the US...  :yawn:

EL PASO - Days after the massacre directed at Latinos across the country, a supporter of President Donald J. Trump allegedly armed with a gun and knife was detained in front of a migrant community center, putting an already grieving city on edge.

Police spokesman Robert Gomez said Thursday that a "suspicious subject" was "detained and interviewed released" because he was carrying his firearm legally. He would not elaborate.

The 21-year-old drove his pickup -- plastered with a Rambo-like image of President Donald J. Trump carrying a large weapon -- from Houston for Trump's trip to the city on Wednesday. He was parked outside the center when police detained him. In the back window was a campaign poster for Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

They stopped him because of a image.

 :thatsright:

1. Only

one reason I can think of that someone in the Texas heat would be driving around with what appears to be blue "rubber" gloves on his hands with a gun and a knife. No fingerprints.

yeah... not illegal to wear gloves either...

4. Rambo-like image of trump. That should be a give away as to the person's mental state.

DU mindset: Obvious criminal.... should have just shot him on sight!

In a statement on Facebook, Casa Carmelita blasted El Paso for releasing the man without charges.

He was spotted lurking outside the Casa Carmelita shelter. “He was sitting in his truck wearing blue latex gloves, and brandishing a knife. Police recovered a loaded gun, ammo, and a bag of white powder from his person,” Casa Carmelita wrote in a Facebook post.

Police stated that the gunman has rights, that they cannot search his truck, and that they have no cause to arrest him.
An eyewitness saw him brandishing a gun and attempting to enter our building, women were fleeing down the street, warning neighbors as they ran away. We watched officers removing clips of ammo from his person,” the shelter wrote.

“One officer acknowledged that if they had not arrived when they did, Thomas was likely to have committed acts which would be ‘a different situation’. They released him shortly after, on our block. The number one demographic of mass shooters are young white males.”

SECOND DUmp thread... https://www.democraticunderground.com/100212361583

Sure... witness says he tried to attack them- Police don't do shit because there was no evidence  he did anything. Otherwise, DUmpmonkiez lie to get law abiding citizen shot by cops.

5. WTF?

“He was sitting in his truck wearing blue latex gloves, and brandishing a knife. Police recovered a loaded gun, ammo, and a bag of white powder from his person,”

O would they have arrested him if he had slaughtered 22 more people?

The thing is- The police didn't believe the witnesses. Funny that, eh?

Bartram acknowledged he was legally carrying a pistol but denied waving it around, and said the gloves and knife could be explained. “I was eating prickly pears,” he said. The white powder was a protein supplement Bartram said he takes along with other Alex Jones’ branded nutritional supplements.
I did not understand the wearing gloves when eating prickly pears comment until I looked up how to eat them. Apparently they can stain stuff easily.

8. Glad to see police recognizing white wing gunners as potential terrorists.
