Imagine coming home one day to find the words ‘KKK wants you to burn’ slapped across your side of the fence in ghoulish green paint, a cross with the words “BURN” emblazoned upon it, and your creepy neighbor standing in the yard covered in the same green paint.
WDRB reports from Louisville, Kentucky this surreal scenario actually happened to Jesus Alamo and his family Sunday. When he foolishly asked the creepy neighbor, Douglas Poynter, why he would do such a thing, Poynter screamed,
“F____ you. F_____ all you immigrants.”
According to the police report, Poynter then took a swing at Alamo and his nine-year-old step daughter said she’d call the police. Poynter than went into his house and came out with a shotgun, pointed it at Alamo — who was carrying his 22-month-old son — and threatening to shoot him the “first chance he got.” When police finally arrived, they noticed Poynter was drunk.
The following day, Alamo and his family woke up to the nausea-inducing stink of gasoline, and found puddles of the stuff outside of every exit. Once again, they called the police. Meanwhile, Poynter was out there with his
penis gun shouting,
“Sooner or later, you’re gonna die. You and your family.”
When police arrived, they advised Alamo and his family to file criminal charges. YOU THINK? Why did these idiot cops even let Poynter go the night before? Especially when it turns out Poynter had been subjecting Alamo and his family to bullying, hate crimes, and terrorist threats for months!
According to the warrant, the victim claims to have had trouble with Poynter for several months, including one incident in which Poynter walked into his family’s home without being invited. Police say the man’s children — 12-year-old twins and a 22-month-old — are terrified of Poynter.
Louisville’s finest finally hauled this certified psychopath off to jail, but let him out on $10,000 bail just a few hours later.
Wait a minute… Are you freaking KIDDING me? Poynter terrorizes a family for months — just for being Latino — invokes the name of a white supremacist terrorist organization, trespasses on this family’s property, douses their house with gasoline and threatens to let their house on fire, points his gun at them and threatens to kill them repeatedly, and Louisville Police let him out on $10,000 bail?
Oh, and here’s the kicker: All the other neighbors describe Poynter as “friendly.” FRIENDLY? Guess they’ve never been on the wrong end of his
penis shotgun, gasoline can, or toxic racism. How much do you want to bet these neighbors are all Anglo-white.
We understand that Louisville Police are too busy gang raping 15-year-old girls and engaging in other criminal conduct to have time for mediating disputes between neighbors, but… is there something in the water? Or is it just plain, old-fashioned racism.
Alamo says he has no plans to move, but in his place, this writer would hire a realtor STAT.
Poynter arrested and then let go on only $10,000 bail.
