20 year old Richard Losey is sitting in a Orange County jail after sucker punching a black Trump supporter at a Republican America First rally, which took plaice in Laguna, California this past Sunday. He was arrested after being caught on film punching a well known black Trump supporter named R.C. Maxwell. Maxwell is a black conservative from LA, who’s worked in several campaigns. He calls himself the black Sean Hannity and proclaims to be a supporter of Trump’s illegal immigration policy.
Losey is an Ohio man who travelled all the way to California to participate in the counter protest. The pair were among 2,500 others who descended on Main Beach for the demonstration on Sunday night.
When Maxwell came over to the side of the counter protestors, he claimed he was just trying to engage in calm debate with the other side.
‘I went over to the left side to see if I could engage them with dialogue and I was instantly encircled by the so called anti fascists,’ he told Fox News.
As he was speaking to the crowd, who weren’t trying to hear any of it, that is when Losey slowly crept up behind him and punched him. He raised his hand to strike Maxwell on the head, bringing him to the ground as onlookers scuffled and gasped.
This is part where Losey messed up. He snitched on himself. He went on social media bragging about what he had done. He identified himself on Twitter on Tuesday after footage of the incident surfaced online. He was trying to buy a bust ticket home to Ohio when police located and arrested him. In a string of tweets this is what he had to say:
I’m the dude who fought him haha [sic] I AM NOT APART IF A GROUP I did what I had to do, we didn’t want him there and he didn’t leave.
‘I did what I had to do. He ran and left us alone when his input wasn’t wanted. We all told him to leave and he didn’t. He had it coming.
‘I did it because he would stop talking about Trump when all of us told him thousands of times we didn’t want to hear it. I am NOT racist,’ he said.
He now remains in Orange County Jail on a charge of misdemeanor assault with a hate crime enhancement with bond set at $50,000.
