Florida man charged with hate crime says he ‘only shot a n¡gger’

Authorities in Port St. Joe, Florida say a man charged with a hate crime felt inconvenienced by his arrest because he had “only shot a n¡gger.”



Walton Henry Butler, 59, was arrested by Gulf County Sheriff’s deputies on Monday night for shooting 32-year-old Everett Gant, who is black, in the head with a .22 caliber rifle.

According to a charging affidavit obtained by The Star, Butler had referred to Pamela Rogers’ child and other children at his apartment complex with racial slurs.

Gant was shot between the eyes when he went to Butler’s apartment to confront him over the remarks, the documents said. Butler allegedly closed his sliding glass door and left Gant bleeding on ground outside.

The suspect contacted 911 and had finished his dinner before Gulf County Sheriff Joe Nugent arrived.

Nugent recalled that Butler appeared “inconvenienced” by the arrest, saying that “he had only shot a n¡gger.”

“He was brought to the investigation unit where he was interviewed and basically admitted to shooting the victim and said he shot a, used a racial slur, and said that is what he shot and acted like it was not like a big deal or anything to him,” Nugent told WJHG.

Butler was charged with attempted murder with a hate crime enhancement. He was being held in the Gulf County Jail after an appearance in court on Tuesday morning.

Gant was in stable condition at Bay Medical Center and is expected to survive.

Pretty hard-headed young person. Takes a .22 right between the eyes at point-blank range and is still alive...

This scumbag's bullet could have easily ricocheted off the colored gentleman's skull and hit a white person.

A .22 rifle? Doesn't he know all that does is piss them off?

The news didn't say, but did they have to tow his pickup truck from the scene with the Confederate flag in the back window and Romney '12 sticker on the bumper?

NO, since neither the Confederate flag nor the Romney sticker are racist symbols.

What kind of idiot goes around bragging to police that not only did he do it, but he did it just because he's black? Who's dumb enough to deliberately put himself in exactly the worst position possible?


Ah. Got it.

It takes at least a .357 to penetrate the negroidal coconut. That's just common knowledge.
