People are either getting dumber or meaner, and a man in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, would seem to qualify on both those counts.
64-year-old Richard Lloyd attempted to set a convenience store afire because the owner was “Muslim” and they didn’t carry his favorite juice. When arrested, Lloyd told authorities he was merely trying to:
“Run the Arabs out of the country.”
The owner of the store, who is Indian, and not the least bit Muslim, said the incident had left him shaken.
Authorities described what they saw when they arrived at the scene:
“The dumpster had been rolled in front of the doors and the contents were lit on fire. Upon seeing our deputies, the man put his hands behind his back and said ‘take me away.'”
The dickheaded Lloyd told a judge he will be representing himself and that he was just “doing his part for America.”
If he had wanted to do his part for America, perhaps Mr. Lloyd should have considered pouring gasoline on himself and jumping into the dumpster shortly after he set it alight.
