A deranged Hispanic man was caught on camera attempting to maim protesters with a chainsaw while spewing racist rhetoric. MTO News learned that the incident occurred in McCallen, Texas and the suspect has finally been apprehended by police.
Here is the very graphic video:
McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez told MTO News that an individual was seen shouting and brandishing a chainsaw at protestors in the downtown area and has been detained.
“Thus far it’s been the only incident we’ve had at today’s event,” he said. “We’ve identified that person, we’ve detained that person and are continuing our investigation into the particular incident.”
The Police confirmed that an assault investigation is underway related to the man, who was seen in a video brandishing and revving a chainsaw at Black Lives Matter protestors marching downtown Friday.
In the video, the man can be heard saying, “Go home,” the man shouted repeatedly in the video, dispersing a group of protestors while pointing animatedly.
Then he began using racist language. “Don’t let those f—— n—— out there control you. Don’t let those f—— trash antifa b——- people,” the man continued to shout.
The man assaulted multiple protesters, then he pulled out a chainsaw.
“It’s very scary,” she said. “I think that the exact point they were trying to make is that they didn’t think that Black Lives Matter was necessary here, but I think he disproved his own point by violently attacking people that were walking on the street.”
