“This is why you people get shot,” the white man yelled at the Black man, accusing the homeowner of stealing mail from his own mailbox.
A white man in Florida was arrested Tuesday for pointing a gun at and unleashing a racist tirade on a Black man, accusing the homeowner of stealing from his own mailbox.
Joseph Max Fucheck, 58, was booked on charges of aggravated assault with a firearm with prejudice and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, both of which are second-degree felonies, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said in a statement.
The victim, Dwayne Wynn, was across the street from his home in Miami-Dade talking to a neighbor on June 14 when Fucheck pulled up and placed something in Wynn’s mailbox, the state attorney’s statement said. Wynn walked across the street to see what it was and found a business card that read: “We Buy Houses…CASH!” and “We Buy Houses… FAST!” He then returned to his conversation with his neighbor.
Fucheck circled back toward Wynn in his Jeep, “jumped out of his vehicle, and began a profanity-laced rant, stating, ‘That’s not your property motherf—er! I saw you! I was down the street watching you! I saw you take that out of there. You’re just a motherf—ing nosy neighbor! Give me my card, that’s my property!'” the statement said.
Fucheck twice lunged at Wynn before pulling out a firearm and pointed it at Wynn, the statement said. After he lowered the gun, Wynn began filming the encounter.
In the video Wynn recorded, Fucheck continued to wave the gun, referring to it: “Damn right I carry a motherf—ing gun.” He also continued to accuse Wynn of not owning his property, apparently slurring at times.
As he drove away, Fucheck shouted the N-word at Wynn and yelled: “This is why you people get shot.” Witnesses and children watched the incident unfold.
Please notice the trend of white people just assuming they have the right to interrogate POC with no authority. It is white privilege. If a person walked up to these same white people and demanded that they answer a bunch of questions about who they are and what they are doing, these white people would go nuts screaming about their rights to liberty, to freedom, so on. However they do not feel POC have those same rights. If I was at my mailbox and some asshole demanded to know if it was mine I would tell them to go fuck themselves in clear terms crude language.
