You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

#FloridaMan strips naked at flea market, steals car, breaks into home, rips out mailbox, kisses old lady, gets arrested

Meet 23-year-old Lahorace Pickett Jr.

Lahorace is an Escambia County man who went on a crime spree last week, and in less than an hour, he got naked at a flea market, stole a car, broke into a home, and ripped someone’s mailbox out of the ground.

And on Wednesday, Lahorace was jailed on more than two dozen counts on charges ranging from burglary and indecent exposure to aggravated assault and battery.

According to News Channel 5, “it all began at T&W Flea Market on North T Street at 11:17 a.m. Witnesses told deputies Pickett jumped onto a coin machine and started punching and kicking it.

People inside the diner said Pickett then got on the ground, exposed his penis, and started screaming. One customer said Pickett jumped on his shoulders. Pickett is also accused of going behind the counter and touching and striking a worker.

The arrest reports say Pickett left the diner, took his clothes off in the parking lot, and got into someone’s car naked. Deputies arrived and found a pair of blue shorts and plaid boxers on the ground. They said they also found a backpack with a gun inside.

At 11:34 a.m., a 71-year-old woman who lives a few blocks away on North R Street told deputies Pickett drove up in the stolen car and confronted her outside. She says he grabbed her hair, tried to kiss her, and then picked up a piece of concrete and threatened to kill her.

Pickett is then accused of breaking into an RV on the property. A man who lives in the RV tried to confront him, but Pickett picked up a brick and threw it at him, the victim said.

When deputies arrived, they say Pickett tried to run. They caught him in the bed of a truck.

Deputies say Pickett had a backpack that contained his wallet and ID, a martial arts throwing star, handgun ammunition, and a bag of synthetic marijuana, also known as spice.

After Pickett was in custody, deputies responded to a third location on West Blount Street at 11:59 a.m.

A man told deputies he saw Pickett earlier in the day rip his neighbor’s mailbox out of the ground. Another witness said he saw Pickett break through the front door. A woman who lives there was at work at the time of the burglary but later came home and found her TV broken. The woman said nothing was stolen.

Jail records show Pickett lists the home on North R Street as his home address. However, the arrest report lists Pickett as homeless.

Pickett has a criminal history that includes convictions on robbery and battery charges.”

Just under 500gm.  Would have been easier if they just said "a Pound."

He's lucky he got caught.  Odds approach 100% that he would have crashed the plane trying to land it.  He may have seen an instructor do it, but it's bloody difficult to try to do it without any kind of training.  When I was a kid some guy tried stealing a plane after having an introductory lesson, and they found pieces of him all wrapped around an oak tree about 1/2 mile short of the runway.

Walmart Mask/Gun Incident: Florida Man Draws on Shopper Who Confronted Him About Wearing a Mask [VIDEO]
by Dan Zimmerman
Jul 16, 2020
Quote
Is there a more volatile mix than two Florida Men in a Walmart? It doesn’t seem so. Then throw in a confrontation over wearing a mask — or the lack thereof — and things can (and sometimes do) escalate quickly.

It’s just a matter of time before one of these mask-related disputes results in a shot being fired.

From the AP:
Quote
    An unmasked man pulled a gun on a masked shopper and threatened to kill him during an apparent confrontation over masks at a Florida Walmart store, sheriff’s officials said.

    The Royal Palm Beach store’s security video shows the unmasked man pushing an older man in a wheelchair through the store on Saturday afternoon, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post. Sheriff’s officials said they have identified the man, who is cooperating with detectives. They have not released his name.

    The man in the wheelchair pulled a red neckerchief over his mouth in the store.

    The video shows a shopper wearing a mask approach the pair and exchange words. That’s when the unmasked man gives the shopper the middle finger before pulling a handgun from his waistband, the sheriff’s office said.  ...

Florida man opens fire in hotel lobby because a mother and son weren't social distancing, police say
July 30, 2020
The Blaze
Quote
A Florida man fired a gun inside a Miami Beach hotel after he became angry that a mother and son weren't social distancing, police said.

The shooting happened Monday night at the Crystal Beach Suites Hotel on Collins Avenue. Douglas Marks reportedly entered the lobby of the beachfront hotel and noticed a mother and son sitting on a couch.

"You all aren't social distancing," Marks told the mother and son, according to the police report. Marks then told them, "You all need to leave."   ...

Marks then pulled out a firearm and fired several shots. An anonymous male witness said he shielded the mother and son during the shooting, and claimed there were "like six" shots fired.

Police say the shooter "continued to scream commands to social distance while holding the firearm and subsequently fired several shots."  ...

An intoxicated Florida man allegedly spat on a child’s face and told the boy “You now have coronavirus,” according to a report.

The disturbing encounter took place last Sunday night at Ricky T’s restaurant in Treasure Island, Fox 13 news reported. ...

“Victim stated that (Copenhaver) was in such close proximity that spit particles from (Copenhaver’s) mouth landed in his face,” an officer wrote in the police report. ...

Was that wrong?

I am tempted to say "He should be arrested for felony assault!",but the plain truth is he should be hanged in public with a sign around his neck reading "This is what happens to adults that purposely harm children!",and left swinging until the birds have picked his bones clean.

I know it's not what is GOING to happen,but I do sincerely wish it were. If it were MY child,you would already be reading his obit.
Ever think you would be arrested for NOT wearing a mask when entering a convenience store?

Do you think his parents were brother and sister, or just first cousins?

I honestly can't think too much about it without wanting to break stuff and hurt people.

Wrong question.

Does he take his front teeth out now because it is such a pain in the ass to get a new set, at your expense, every time.
