Crowd drops to ground crying as 'lunatic' Trump supporter pulls gun on peaceful immigration protest

Crowd drops to ground crying as ‘lunatic’ Trump supporter pulls gun on peaceful immigration protest in Alabama




https://www.rawstory.com/2018/06/children-drop-ground-crying-lunatic-trump-supporter-pulls-gun-peaceful-immigration-protest-alabama/

A former Huntsville teacher, Shane Ryan Sealy, 34, allegedly showed up to counter protest. He exchanged words with another protestor and then pulled out a gun, according to WHNT News.

Other attendees described him as a “a lunatic counter protester” and praised police for quickly arresting him.

“He pulled out a gun. I saw him holding it out in front of him. We just started screaming for everybody to drop to the ground,” said Ava Caldwell, the rally’s organizer. “We all dropped to the ground crying.”

Sealy was arrested before firing any shots. The police pointed out that he was not allowed to have a firearm within 1,000 feet of the protest.

5. From WHNT in Huntsville:

Huntsville City Schools spokesperson Keith Ward confirmed that Sealy previously taught at Grissom High School. Ward added Sealy has not worked for the school system in, “roughly two years.” Ward later added that Sealy had only been a teacher there for around 8 weeks in 2016.

Nice crowd of protesters - good job, Huntsville!!

13. More detailed article from WDAM:

snip

At first he was just heckling, he had a sign, you know, 'deport everyone.' It wasn't an emergency at that point. But when he pulled out the gun things escalated really quickly," said Heather Resendez, co-organizer of the event.

Attendees fell to the ground in fear for their lives.

"Somebody yelled 'Gun!' I saw the gun, him holding the gun. I started screaming for people to get down," said Ava Caldwell, another co-organizer of the event.

"I saw him pull it out. He said 'I will shoot everybody here' so me and my people who were sitting the gazebo so we ran and laid down the in grass right here and we were yelling at people to get down, cause a lot of people over here didn't see this person, they didn't see he had a weapon," said Resendez.

23. And they want to arm teachers?!?!?

Some people, no matter their profession, shouldn't have guns. Most people shouldn't. I guess this guy wasn't teaching when they had the debates over this issue after Parkland.

29. Probably have restrictions for a while.

At least whatever they typically give a white guy with a gun in Alabama (police would have shot a POC in this situation).

He should really be feared after he's released from jail.......

26. Trump has said he could shoot someone in broad daylight and not suffer any repercussions.

I guess his followers figure he'll take care of them as well.

but there should be a charge of making terroristic threats in there somewhere that prevents this person from ever possessing a firearm again.

too damn volatile to take a chance.

That said, no hate at the officers in this case who appear to have handled this situation very well. Less trigger happy is always a good thing.
