    A supporter of former President Donald Trump has pleaded guilty to felony charges for firing his handgun into a carful of Black girls who were arguing with pro-Trump agitators near the Iowa Capitol last December, injuring one.

    Michael McKinney, 26, pleaded guilty Wednesday to intimidation with a dangerous weapon and willful injury, charges that each carry up to 10 years in prison.

    Under a plea agreement that a prosecutor called “generous,” the state will dismiss four charges including attempted murder

    Trump supporters surrounded the girls’ car, yelling and honking horns, so the driver put the car in reverse and struck a pickup. Bystander video shows McKinney pulling a handgun from his waistband and firing into the car from 15 feet (4.5 meters) away.

    Trump supporters blasted authorities for charging McKinney, arguing that his shot protected rallygoers by scaring the car away and noting that McKinney frequented pro-police “Back the Blue” rallies.

    Fortunately there was no killing in the OP. And let's give the guy the benefit of the doubt on whether he was racially motivated. Just because he's a Trump supporter doesn't mean he's racist.

    It was hatred. Whether it was road rage or racial hatred, it was hatred. Too often I read you posts about the crimes of white people, but not the crime wave perpetrated by blacks. It shows your own racial bias.
