Maybe He Only Wanted to Chop Spending

August 27th, 2012 - 11:15 am

Um… I’m pretty sure this is a big no-no:

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.

Looks like a nice fella.

Seriously, though — a machete? What was the plan? To just walk in and start dicing delegate? Make julienne fries? Deliver a special gift to surprise guest speaker Danny Trejo?

Progs are vile.

(H/T, Treacher.)
