The protesters that are currently taking place have gotten completely out of hand and this story is all of the evidence that we need. Marquise Damarius Asomani of Charlotte, North Carolina allegedly decided to start shooting at a crowd of Trump supporters who had gathered on a freeway overpass. An arrest was made and the crowd included a number of children as well.
Can you believe that this man would engage in such reckless behavior? We can. This is the America that the Democrats want. They won’t do anything about the protests in their cities and they expect the GOP to take the fall because Trump is the current president. It’s terrible logic at best. The group had gathered on the Sutton Mill overpass and was waving flags when the man opened fire.
It’s a miracle that no one was injured during this attempted attack. According to WSOC reports, witnesses claimed that the man shouted profanities at the crowd before the weapon was drawn. South Carolina bureau reporter Greg Suskin was alerted about the situation as well. There is also a police report that backs up this version of events.
Fort Mill police say someone drove up I-77 last night and fired a gun at supporters of President Trump. They were waving flags from the Sutton Road overpass. Police say a Charlotte man is in custody this morning, pending charges. No one was hurt. More info soon.

Three men were in the car when the shots were fired. As the vehicle began to turn onto the ramp that leads to northbound I-77, the driver continued to berate the crowd and it wasn’t long before he stuck his arm out of the window. Again, it’s a miracle that no one was hurt. This crowd had a guardian angel watching over them that day, that is for sure.
Angie Freeman is one of the witnesses who happened to be on the scene at the time and she says this was a family gathering. When the gunfire erupted, she was in the parade of vehicles. “Everybody was cutting up and having fun and laughing and everybody on 77 was blowing the horns and waving,” says Freeman.
“We had all the windows down because we had all the flags out the windows, and it was very loud and it was four or five shots,” she continued. Shawna Winter is another Trump supporter who was on the scene at the time and her story is also harrowing. “You could tell that they slowed down and I just heard, like, ‘Da da da,’ you know just three rapid, what definitely sounded like gunfire,” she said.
“I think it’s a shame that we can’t show our support for our president,” Winter said and we completely agree. People are not content to merely have political disagreements anymore. Now, guns are involved and the lives of children are at risk. This is not something that anyone should be willing to tolerate, no matter which side of the current national divide you are on.
Marquise Damarius Asomani is now facing various charges for this unprovoked attack. He’s been charged with six counts of assault. In addition to these charges, he also faces one count of unlawful carrying of a pistol and one count of pointing. Asomani is facing charges of battery of a high and aggravated nature and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.
We’re glad to see that the book is being thrown at this maniac. It’s one thing to disagree with Trump supporters and it’s another to open fire at a crowd. This man could have easily flipped them the bird and kept it moving but that was not good enough for him. He will now face the consequences of these actions.
The two other passengers who were in the car with Asomani at the time are not facing any charges. We’re sure that the last thing that they wanted in this instance is for him to open fire. The national mainstream media has yet to touch this story because it does not fit the narrative that they have currently chosen. If you will excuse us, we are going to need a moment to go find our surprised faces.
