Here’s video just released of a Texas armed government worker driving 100 MPH in his personal car and driving in a manner that would get anyone else thrown in jail. A citizen followed – and video’d – the demonstration of I Am The Law (and I am Above the Law) performed by Thomas Tuminelli, the road-raging AGW.
Who also slammed on his brakes to teach the man following (and recording) a lesson in Who Is Boss. This resulted in a very minor fender tapping – which almost became a double tapping.
The enraged AGW can be seen existing his vehicle holding his gun – and then screaming at the other man for some time before things de-escalated.
Here’s where a “Red flag” law might actually serve a purpose – as people like Tuminelli arguably should not be trusted with deadly weapons, especially under color of law.
Austin Police released a memo in November detailing the crimes committed by Tuminelli. According to FOX 26, the memo states he committed at least eight different traffic violations, including reckless driving, brake checking, speeding, crossing a solid white line, and tailgating.
You can imagine what the punishment would have been for you – or me. Any ordinary person without a state-issued gun and the protection of the state.
He was given a 60 day suspension. Not so much as a fine.
And now he’s back on the road, protecting and serving.
Better wear your “mask” in Austin.
