Shelby County, TN. A man hears noise outside of his house. He sees thieves in his car, trying to steal it and steps outside to confront them. The thieves begin shooting, so the homeowner fires back. At least 30 shots are fired during the firefight, but no one appears to have been hit.
The homeowner admitted to police that he had closed his eyes out of fear during at least part of the gun battle, so they arrested him for reckless endangerment. Note that they have made no effort to try and catch the actual criminals. That would be dangerous and cops want to collect their pensions.

He also has been a huge motivator in the defund the police and LGTBQ movements. He’s written articles for SLATE, NEWSWEEK, THE NEW REPUBLIC, SALON, THE HILL, and the HUFFINGTON POST.
