A man with a machete was arrested Sunday while walking with a group of “Occupy Tampa” protesters near the Republican National Convention, police say…..When deputies caught up to him, police say he said told them he did not have to stop and that he was allowed to carry whatever he wanted. Weapons are prohibited in areas police have designated as “event zones.”
Police say Wilson of Tallahassee resisted arrest but was subdued and taken to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. He faces charges of carrying a prohibited item in the event zone and resisting arrest.
I’m SHOCKED! an “Occupy” Protestor carrying a deadly weapon! Also note how he resisted arrest and needed to be “subdued”. But why would people at the Republican convention want to carry a gun?
Yeah, carry your damn guns!
