Butler
Today's egregious Florida gun crime comes to you from Port St. Joe, where police say 59-year-old Walton Henry Butler shot a man in the head last night, then sat down and ate dinner while the victim lay bleeding at his door. Police say he was upset because "he had only shot a nigger."

The victim, 32-year-old Everett Gant, had gone to Butler's apartment to confront him about calling a child a "nigger" and making "several racial remarks to the black children in the apartment complex," according to the police report. Butler allegedly responded by shooting him in the face with a .22-caliber rifle.

The rest can be best explained by the probable-cause affidavit from the Gulf County Sheriff's Office (We also put the cover page online, if you're curious):
After Walt Butler shot Everett Gant he stated he shut the sliding glass door with Everett Gant lying outside the door, called 911 then funished cooking supper, sat at the kitchen table and began eating.

When Sheriff Nugent arrived on scene he made contact with Butler by phone. Butler told him to come in he was eating dinner and had put up the gun. Butler was sitting at the table and acted as if it was an inconvenienced [sic] when he was asked to stand up and handcuffs were put on. He said he did not understand the problem he had only shot a nigger.
Charming, Mr. Butler. That will be a charge of attempted murder with a hate-crime enhancement for you, sir.

As for Gant, he's in stable condition and expected to survive.

Unfortunately, the world as a whole is full of hate. "To think Florida is full of people like this that need to be raped by brothers in prison" as a person quoted. Please get this person some help. Please people if you watch the media and trust it, then your bringing hate to the world. See no color and you will live a better happier life. Remember Dr. King wanted equal rights, it was not about color. Put your faith in God and make the whole a better place. Here is a small part of the other side of the story. www.waltbutlerhelp.com

Unfortunately, FloriDUH is full of people like that. And yes, he probably will be raped by Brothers in prison. As for Walt Butler ... wonder if he's related to Richard Butler up in Idaho. Richard runs a neo Nazi church called the Aryan Nations. Walt would probably feel right at home there.

Hopefully this guy gets repeatedly and violently raped by some thick-dicked brothers when he goes to the pen.

What happened to Disqus? This new format is terrible and hard to follow.

Holy Crap!  The guy just looks like he would do something that crazy, doesn't he?

@ljmagnuson no he won't. brothers don't rape white men in prison. they are protected by white supremacists most of the time. white privilege exists in prison too.

 @mertes012 The entire Village Voice chain switched over to Livefyre last month -- it takes a little getting used to, but I'm told it's much better. You can tag friends on other social networking platforms and watch comments appear in real time. What are you having trouble with?

@deedee @ljmagnuson  You are probably right. There's quite a few White supremist gangs such as the Aryan Brotherhood, etc. Make it hard for anyone to get to this guy. He might even pay off guards to protect him. I've been to St. Joe before. It's a small fishing town in the Big Bend area of Florida, right near the Gulf of Mexico. Only people there are commercial fisherman. And it is very racist. I remember that.

 It is hard to see the chain of conversation, it's just a vertical blur of unsequential comments in some sections. Also, I can't manage comments from a dashboard as with disqus. When I log into email to see comments and click reply to one of them, the page does not find the comment for me, it only opens the webpage and leaves me at the top

 @mertes012 I agree about the comments being nested weirdly. I'm not sure how to go about fixing any of that stuff, but I've passed your comment on to the people running the back-end website stuff. Sorry I can't do more.
