Driver Pistol-Whipped, Threatened With Gun By U.S. Marshall
Even some U.S. authorities have no business owning guns.
A Missouri couple were allegedly physically and verbally attacked in a Mother’s Day road rage incident carried out by an off-duty U.S. Marshal and his wife.
In the May 10 encounter, the U.S. Marshal allegedly came toward Donald and Janet Akers with a gun.
59-year-old Donald was allegedly pistol-whipped in the face by the U.S. Marshal and left with numerous injuries, including a broken nose, and severe bruising…
Janet told KTVI the truck driver’s wife exited the vehicle and began to yell at her. The driver carried a gun as he came toward the Akers, she said.
Donald Akers told KTVI ‘He held the gun first, I didn’t know if he was going to shoot us or what. But instead, he hit me right across the nose with it. Broke my nose, my sinus cavities, broke my teeth.’
Janet Akers told the Fox affiliate she then started to fight.
‘I thought they were going to shoot my husband, and I was really scared for that,’ she told KTVI.

It is time for the people to make the government afraid of them.

I read the source article. Yet again we have the same issue of not holding law enforcement accountable and encouraging a “boys club” mentality where the cops treat the victims as instigators while giving each other ‘high-fives’. Hope something positive/constructive comes out of this.
“After the scuffle was reportedly stopped by onlookers, Janet told KTVI ‘So the police came, and went over directly to them. And were talking to them, laughing, joking around.”
“In a statement, a U.S. Marshals Service said ‘The Marshals Service is aware of an alleged incident involving one of our employees and is gathering relevant information on the matter to determine appropriate steps.’
Ofc. Shawn McGuire, a St. Louis County police spokesman, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch all four people were issued third-degree assault citations.”
