In the video, he’s asked about why he’s carrying a rifle, whether he intends to use it, and the purpose he is marching for. The Gateway Pundit’s Cassandra Fairbanks was first to report on this matter.
When asked about the purpose of his firearm, the protester had this to say:
“I mean, if I use it against the cops I’m dead. I think all the people that hate us and want to say shit to us are too big of p-ssies to stop and actually do anything about it.”
As we’ve previously reported, the Austin Police Department has issued a statement on the shooting. Though brief, the press release did include a some key details that were left out of initial reporting.
