The liberal media keeps telling us that Trump supporters are unleashing a wave of hatred across the country, but the only real acts of violence are being committed by people opposed to the President-elect. In New York State a crazy liberal man killed a UPS driver because he was convinced it was actually Donald Trump.
The Ithaca Voice reports that 38-year-old Justin R. Barkley shot and killed a UPS driver in a Walmart parking lot earlier this month. After the murder he fired a warning shot in the air to alert police to his location, indicating he wished to surrender. He then weirdly stood off with the cops for 8 hours before he was taken into custody. None of that weirdness compares to what he said in court:
An Ithaca man accused of killing a UPS driver from Candor said in court Monday afternoon that not only did he believe he shot and killed Donald Trump, but that no evidence could be presented to him to suggest otherwise.
“I shot and killed Donald Trump purposely, intentionally and very proudly,” said Barkley.
He told the court that he knew where president elect Donald Trump would be on Dec. 8 and waited in the Ithaca Walmart parking lot kill him.
“I went there to purposely shoot and kill him and put him down,” Barkley said.
He told the court that he understood the difference between mistaking a person for being Trump and asserting that he actually killed Trump. When asked if any evidence could be presented to him to suggest he killed a different person, he said, “I would hope not.”
Barkley was actually trying to plead guilty, but the judge wouldn’t let him confess to killing Donald Trump when he clearly hadn’t. The judge asked Barkley if would plead guilty to the killing and admit that he mistook the UPS driver for Trump.
“I would not agree to that your honor,” Barkley said.
Making this all the more horrible, the victim’s family was in court witnessing this insanity. The family of UPS driver William Schumacher was reportedly in tears because of this bizarre behavior.
Ultimately the judge refused to accept Barkley’s guilty plea, instead ordering him to undergo a mental competency evaluation first.
Crazy or not (and he is crazy) this guy shot and killed somebody because he thought it was Donald Trump. He didn’t do this because he’s an “alt-right” racist Trump supporting conservative: he did it because he is a liberal whacko who believes the media disinformation about the President-elect.
If a crazy person ever shot and killed a UPS driver because he thought it was Obama, the media and liberals everywhere would flip out and blame “racist” right-wing white men. Why when a liberal nut kills someone he believes is Trump does the media pretend like it’s no big deal? Where is the condemnation of Trump-bashing and fake news for motivating this crime?
