RI State Rep calls Parkland shooting survivor "dummy" on Twitter


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) -- An outspoken state lawmaker and fierce defender of the Second Amendment is facing backlash over his choice of words on Twitter, directed at a student survivor of the Parkland, Florida school tragedy.

In the wake of the deadly shooting over the weekend at a waffle house in Nashville, Republican Rep. Mike Chippendale of Foster--and Parkland shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez, sparred on Twitter over the role of guns in keeping people safe.

Regarding the waffle house shooter, Gonzalez argued "the local police say a man at the scene wrestled his gun away - looks like you don't need to arm a teacher to stop a shooting."

Chippendale fired back, saying "if he did have a gun - the police still wouldn't be searching for the gunman, and the entire region wouldn't be on lockdown - dummy."


There's a reason we have something like nine elected Republicans in this state.

Police investigating possible hate crime in New York City subway assault


The New York City Police Department is investigating an incident involving a Hispanic man, who was allegedly beaten and pushed onto the subway tracks Friday night at Manhattan’s Union Square subway station.

According to the NYPD, the suspect is a black man wearing a red hat and red T-shirt that displayed President Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.” The suspect shouted racial slurs at the victim.

A press release sent out by the NYPD on Saturday said the incident occurred after the 24-year-old victim “engaged in a verbal dispute” with the suspect on board a “4” train as it approached the Union Square station.

The NYPD said the suspect “made multiple derogatory statements regarding the victim’s ethnicity” during the argument. After the victim got off the train, police said the suspect followed him onto the platform and “punched him on his head multiple times” before pushing the victim onto the tracks.

A black Trump fan. Okay....
