Fanone informed CNN that “some man began getting a maintain of my gun. And so they have been screaming out, you already know, ‘Kill him along with his personal gun.’” Fanone stated at that time he realized that whereas he may perhaps shoot a couple of of the folks attacking him, it was unlikely that doing so would save his personal life, and will give the mob precisely the type of justification they have been searching for to homicide him. He determined to try to remind the fascists that he was a human being, “I simply keep in mind yelling out that I’ve children, and it appeared to work. Some folks within the crowd began to encircle me and attempt to provide me some degree of safety.”
However Fanone isn’t calling out heroes the place there are none. “A lot of individuals have requested me my ideas on the people within the crowd that, you already know, that helped me or tried to supply some help. And I believe type of the conclusion I’ve come to is like, thanks, however fuck you for being there.”
That’s one thing I can get behind.
