Man accused of anti-gay gun threat goes to court in wheelchair after accidentally shooting himself

Published

on

Last month, a Detroit man named Steven Edwards posted a shocking video on Twitter that showed him pulling a gun on and threatening to shoot a man whom he  believed to be gay.

This week, Edwards showed up in court in a wheelchair after he accidentally shot himself while fighting with another person.

Fox 2 Detroit reports that the prosecutor in Edwards’ case say that he shot himself while arguing with another individual. Apparently, Edwards pulled a gun on this person and tried to shoot them, but he wound up shooting himself instead.

The prosecutor argued that this self-inflicted wound showed why Edwards should not have his $250,000 bond lowered because he would still have access to his gun if he gets released. Despite this, the judge in the case agreed to lower Edwards’s bond to $100,000.

Last month, Edwards posted a video in which he showed himself pulling out a gun at a man who was exiting a convenience store while calling him “gay as hell” and a “d*ck-in-the-booty-ass n***s.” The man being threatened quickly ran away after seeing Edwards draw a gun on him.

Published

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
