It would appear by the scant coverage given by the mainstream media to this horrific and tragic crime, that they were more invested in falsifying reports on the pro-gun rally in Virginia than reporting the senseless murder of William Knight.
According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the 28-year old construction supervisor got into a heated political discussion with fellow construction co-worker, 28-year old Mason Trever Toney, around 10:30 a.m. While both men were working on a Florida Turnpike job site, an argument between the two friends – possibly over their opposing political views – erupted into the deadly confrontation
A police source acknowledged that “Toney is “anti-government and very outspoken about his beliefs that the government is bad and out to get him.”
Witnesses recalled hearing Knight yell for help and seeing Toney repeatedly stabbing him with a trowel. They tried to stop the attack and threw objects at Toney, but he jumped into a truck and drove away, calling them “terrorists,” according to the affidavit.
Toney’s coworker called 911, at 10:45 a.m., from the construction site to report their boss had been stabbed to death. Deputies rushed to the scene and found Knight dead next to an excavator with a brand-new American flag draped over the side of his body. Co-workers recall seeing Toney with a backpack where it was thought he kept the flag.
Ironically Knight gave Toney a ride to work on Monday before the two men, clashed. Police also acknowledged that Toney is known to be outspoken about politics and has said the government is out to get him.
According to local affiliate Fox 13 News, Knight’s family said he and Toney had been friends since grade school. Knight woke up “extra early” every morning to pick Toney up and bring him to work, the family reportedly said.
Deputy Christian Marrero said, “Detectives are thoroughly working through every lead, talking to every witness that was on the scene, in order to determine what happened here today.”
The sheriff’s office on Monday released a photo of Toney and a white Dodge Ram pickup truck they said he was driving as they searched for him. However later in the day police tracked him to neighboring Brevard County where they arrested him without incident and booked temporarily at the Orange County Corrections Department, where he was being held without bond.
This senseless stabbing is reminiscent of another brutal assault on a 14-year old Trump supporter on a school bus, ironically also in Florida just a few months ago.
The young lad was savagely beaten on November 21st by a group of young thugs while riding on a school bus wearing Trump 2020 hat to school.
A 21-second video clip of the incident showing the boy, identified only as Tyler being repeatedly punched and kicked by two girls and three boys on a Hamilton County school bus, as other students look on and screamed in the background.
After the assault, his mother acknowledged that young Tyler was a huge Trump supporter who bought the Trump cap “with his own money” at a flea market several weeks earlier.
“He was proud to wear it,” she tweeted. “He wore it to school, but due to immediate bullying he put it away & didn’t wear it to school again, sadly the damage was already done & was now a target.”
The teen was then “steadily” bullied on the bus, getting “tripped” and verbally abused before the situation culminated in the senseless beating that ultimately required a trip to the hospital.
“The nurse noted there are bruises on his arm that were older along with his new injuries,” the boy’s mother tweeted last month. “He didn’t tell us about the bullying, but they took it to a new level yesterday and we are just now learning what he was going through.”
This is a cautionary tale, to those of us who support our President, be aware there are bullies and emotionally unhinged individuals, out there, suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, who at any moment might go off on those proudly displaying their support for our Commander-in-Chief.
