HYPOCRITE: Bill Gates Donates A Million To Gun Control Even Though He Travels With A Large, Armed Security Team
Bill and Melinda Gates had a little scare when a woman with a knife broke into their home before his armed security team stopped her. You read that right — Bill Gates, who has donated $1 million to a gun control campaign had his butt saved by a guard with a gun, which is not altogether surprising considering that how much he spend on security (hint: it’s a lot).
A woman was charged in King County court for breaking into the home of Bill Gates and Melinda Gates with a knife.
Sabrahim Sadiki, 45, broke in at least twice by scaling a slope, cutting through thick brush and hopping a perimeter fence. The most recent time about a week ago she was caught.
According to court documents, Sadiki was armed with a knife when she broke into the garage and stole “$386” from a car. Then she made her way into an attached mudroom, camping out in the closet before Gates’ security grabbed her.
When Medina police arrived, Sadiki told officers she was “just trying to serve her country.” The police report reveals she is a homeless woman from the East Coast with no criminal history. She did not have an available mug shot and had no social media presence.
The Gates family would not comment on how someone broke into their $120 million, 66,000 square-foot mansion. The home has cameras, guards and sensors everywhere.
A judge is holding Sadiki on $30,000 bail. She has yet to pay it, so she is still in King County Jail.
I don’t begrudge Bill Gates the right to have armed security there to protect him. But why is it he feels the need to keep guns nearby to keep himself safe, while simultaneously spending $1 million to prevent us little people from doing the same? That is the question that he needs to answer.
