Jason T. Wilson of Tallahassee, Fla., was arrested while allegedly carrying a machete strapped to his leg as he walked in the Republican National Convention zone Sunday. Wilson did not heed the call by deputies to stop, but kept walking. He had to be physically restrained after resisting arrest. He was arrested and charged with carrying prohibited items in an event zone and resisting arrested with violence, Bay News 9 reports.
So, it’s okay for a protester to be armed with an assault rifle at a 2008-Obama campaign event, but a man with a machete strapped to his leg gets arrested? Where is the logic? Don’t get me wrong, he deserves to be arrested because he was a threat, but the man whose gun was in plain sight for the police, as he protested then-candidate Barack Obama, wasn’t told to leave.
