OOPS_ I grabbed an old prompt. Oh well, this is my story.
I’d never been cross-ways to the law that’s why my concealed carry pistol permit processed easily and without delay.
It was the Fourth of July, so I dressed for my trip in an American flag t-shirt and my Make America Great Again baseball cap.
I was half way to the fairground celebration when steam started flooding from the hood on the highway so I took the first exit to find a garage ending up in downtown Seattle before I could find one that was open on the holiday.
Relieved, and since I’d never been there, I set out on foot to tour the city, while my car was being serviced, when out of nowhere, a gang of young men surrounded me and threatened to kill me because of my race and attire!
In a blur, one of them lay dead at my feet with a knife still folded in his fist, but thankfully, I noticed two security cameras nearby that would corroborate my clear self-defense case for the police.
After questioning, and a hospital visit to treat my abrasions, (and the severe anxiety of the event), I was arrested – no video would ever be produced in my murder defense because the DA claimed there were multiple ‘technical difficulties’.
