Colorado man shoots Waffle House cook who asked him to wear a face mask

A Colorado man shot a Waffle House worker who asked him to wear a face mask inside the restaurant.

Kelvin Watson was arrested and charged with attempted murder after the violent dispute last Thursday at the Aurora eatery, where employees told police a waitress had asked the man to wear a mask to place a carry-out order, reported KDVR-TV.

The 27-year-old Watson allegedly returned with a mask, which he still was not wearing, and placed a small gun on the counter after he was asked again to wear the face covering.

“I could blow your brains out,” he told a cook, according to witnesses.

Witnesses said Watson returned the following night just after midnight, and the same cook said he would not serve the man — who then slapped the cook across the face.

The cook then ran toward the back of the restaurant, and Watson allegedly shot him in the chest or abdomen outside the Waffle House.

The cook was taken to a hospital and then released later Friday afternoon.

The city of Aurora does not have a mandate requiring masks in public settings, but they are required in other Denver suburbs and are recommended by county health officials.

Watson was taken into custody Monday, police said.

"I understand the rage of the protesters," Morgan wrote. "Yet the one person who could most powerfully effect change is doing the complete opposite."

The op-ed continued:

Published

Several supporters of President Donald Trump are very upset that he is not doing enough to crack down on the violence that has swept the country ever since the killing of George Floyd last week.

As reported by the conservative Daily Wire, many conservatives who have otherwise been supportive of Trump are growing exasperated that he spent the weekend hunkered down in the White House and only sending the occasional angry tweet.

"Does Trump have dementia or something?" asked pro-Trump political pundit Mike Cernovitch. "Because sitting on his fat ass right now isn't the right move."

Desperate and ‘out-of-control’ Trump might prompt violent insurrection to stay in office: columnist

Published

on

Writing for the Daily Beast, columnist Michael Tomasky made a strong case that Donald Trump has removed any doubt that he is "morally unfit" to be president and, faced with the possibility he may not be re-elected, could resort to encouraging his followers to take up arms in his defense.

"Naively, I always thought that even Donald Trump would stop short of actually inciting violence. I mean, he’s the president of the United States," Tomasky began before adding, "History means nothing to him, and the future means even less. Presidents—all presidents, even ones I didn’t like—think about the office, the future implications of their actions, the future of our institutions."
