Why Was This Vietnam Veteran Shot For Supporting A Presidential Candidate?

Recommended Posts



Paul Jones, Jr. was enjoying a beer with a friend and discussing the upcoming presidential elections when another man butted into the conversation uninvited, and then decided that if he couldn’t win the debate, that he’d shoot the debater.


Paul Jones, Jr., 60, said he was at his neighborhood bar Winston’s Place near E. 131st Street and Miles Avenue around 6 p.m. Monday, talking politics with a friend.


“He butted in the conversation,” Jones said, speaking from his hospital bed. “The conversation wasn’t directed at him or to him.”


It escalated from there in a way no one ever imagined.


The man got so upset, he went out to his car — and came back with a gun, Jones said.


Cleveland police said the man shot Jones in the thigh, then walked out — effectively ending the debate.


The irony of the incident, of course, is that the violent criminals who interrupted and then shot Jones, a Donald Trump supporter, is likely a supporter of Hillary Clinton, who does not believe there is a right to bear arms.



Jones is expected to recover from his injuries.


The man who shot him will be charged with felonious assault when he is arrested.
