RNC Protester Arrested With Machete

The crazies are already being arrested with all sorts of weapons and anarchist apparel

(Bay News) A Republican National Convention protestor was arrested while he allegedly carried a machete strapped to his leg, according to deputies.

According to Hillsborough County Sheriff’s officials, Jason T. Wilson, of Tallahassee, was arrested as he walked in the RNC Event Zone carrying a “full size” machete.

When deputies approached Wilson, they said he continued to walk away despite orders to stop.

“When deputies caught up to Wilson, he advised he did not have to stop and that he was allowed to carry whatever he wanted,” HCSO spokesperson Larry McKinnon said.

When deputies attempted to physically stop him, Wilson allegedly began resisting arrest and was physically restrained.

Wilson was arrested and taken to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on charges of prohibited items in event zone and resisting arrest with violence.

Would you be surprised that Wilson was walking with a group of Occupiers? Or that he has a history of fighting with the police? And, via The Other McCain, we also learn

Two suspected protesters were arrested after they were found playing with a BB gun atop a downtown parking garage, authorities said. (snip)

They also found several items indicating the people were protesters, including antigovernment T-shirts and a backpack stuffed with a large machete, a pocketknife, tin snips and a pry tool, Puetz said.

The backpack belonged to Trevor Swanson, 19, of St. Petersburg, who is prohibited from having weapons because of a domestic violence injunction.

Hmm, aren’t all guns bad in Liberal World? And what’s with a second Occupier having a machete? Expect the real violence to start late today. Most of the Occupiers are too stupid to understand that the RNC is now starting Tuesday.
