U.S. Marshals shoot and kill a Black Lives Matter / anti-fascism protester at Donald Trump’s request. The protester, Michael Forest Reinoehl, had a warrant out for his arrest after shooting a member of a white nationalist group, allegedly in self defense.
Speaking to FOX News on September 12, Trump says that he ordered the Marshals to “go get him.”
A month later, Trump further confesses to the execution, saying “We sent in the U.S. Marshals. It took 15 minutes, it was over. 15 minutes, we got him. They knew who he was. They didn’t want to arrest him, and 15 minutes, that ended.”
Initially, Trump and law enforcement claim a shootout occurred that resulted in Reinoehl’s death. Sometimes they say he shot himself. Eyewitnesses say Reinoehl was unarmed and walking to his car with a phone in one hand and gummy worms in the other when police opened fire without warning. The coroner’s office sides with eyewitnesses.
Donald Trump was not the first criminal elected to public office, and he won’t be the last. It’s up to US to hold them accountable.
