Alabama man gets jail after pulling gun at immigration rally

#

A man accused of pulling a gun at an immigration rally in Alabama has been convicted of menacing and reckless endangerment.

Al. com reports that former high school teacher Shane Ryan Sealy was sentenced Tuesday by Judge Lonzo Robison to 160 days in jail and two years of probation.

Defense Attorney Joshua Graff said Sealy will appeal.

Prosecutors say Sealy was arrested June 30 after pulling a Glock semi-automatic pistol during a Keep Families Together Rally in Huntsville. They say Sealy marched around the park holding a sign that said "ice, ice, baby," referring to Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.

    Some folks just have to prove they have the "Right" to be stupid.

    In my view men like this are undocumented soldiers of the coming second American Civil War (ACW 2.0).

    They have grievances. They feel they should be heard. And, issues settled to their favor. Without compromise.

    Their behavior seems random and is at times violent or plain nuts, but still there are common threads and complaints.

    Once they find a lucid common cause and inspirational leader, it won't be long before a pitched battle for control of America will begin. I think it's going to take ten to twenty years for all the necessary elements to coalesce, just like last time.

    But, I am pretty sure anymore it's coming: ACW 2.0

    Or, maybe he's just some guy who had a bad day.

    I wanna be just like Alabama man!

    I say the racist tone of the rally should elevate this with a hate crime modifier.

    Why is brandishing and flaunting a firearm part of it for some gun owners? I don’t know if this guy was a concealed carry guy but if he was, isn’t the point that the weapon be concealed?

  • Grrrrrr

    In Alabama, both Menacing and Reckless Endangerment are misdemeanors... hopefully Alabama probation/parole wont allow him to own any
    firearms while on probation since his crimes involved a firearm.

    That's most likely the reason he's appealing.

  • The Outlier

    I sincerely hope that taxpayers aren't footing the bill for his frivolous appeal.

  • Dicazi

    Now he's on ice. Nice.

  • brickmette

    This type of irresponsible, psychotic behavior should prevent this man from legally owning firearms.
    If he should be found in possession of firearms in the future, his punishment should be SEVERE.

  • BBNCCU

    Send him to jail!!!!

  • Prophet With Honor

    Shame it wasn't a felony. He doesn't deserve to have guns.

    Goes to show - just because you're a teacher doesn't necessarily mean you're not an idiot.
