My heart breaks for this business owner, but he also says that he supports the protesters. Is this a case of him reaping what he helped sow? Anyway, read how the “enlightened” behavior of the residents of CHAZ really manifests.
McDermott said he got a call Sunday after the suspect smashed a window and got inside his business.
“Broke into the building, set fire to the front counter,” McDermott said.
He and his son said the suspect put hand sanitizer all over a cassette tape, pulled out the film, and put hand sanitizer all over it as well as the counter – then lit it all on fire.
McDermott said they walked in right after the fire was lit and managed to quickly snuff it out.
His son, Mason McDermott, said he saw the suspect taking off from the south side of the building.
“I chased him down and a s soon as I came face to face, he came at me so I put him on the ground,” Mason McDermott said. He said he had the suspect pinned while his dad repeatedly called 911.
“At some point he tried to cut me with a box cutter,” Mason said. He pointed to a large rip on his jeans from where the knife cut just his pants.
McDermott said he kept trying to call 911
“I’m told 19 times,” he said. “They alluded they were sending someone… finally said they weren’t going to send somebody,” McDermott said.
“I don’t know what to expect next. If you can’t call the police department, you can’t call the fire department to respond, what do you have?” McDermott said. “Heartbroken. I mean, they are the cavalry,” he said.
He said while they had the suspect detained, protesters rushed over and demanded they let the suspect go.
“It was either that, or they were coming over and it was going to turn into mayhem beyond mayhem,” McDermott said.
