Beneath a photograph of Hughes at the rally with the gun slung over his shoulder, the Dallas Police Department, desperately searching for the sniper whose rampage left five police officers dead and seven others wounded, tweeted to the world, "This is one of our suspects. Please help us find him!"
Alerted to the post, which was retweeted more than 40,000 times before the police department took it down Friday afternoon, Hughes quickly surrendered his rifle to police Thursday night, he told reporters on Friday. He was interrogated and had his clothes and the gun confiscated.
Since then, attorney Corwyn Davis said, Hughes and his brother had received "thousands of death threats. There was a lot of negligence with that picture."
|It didn't renew any 'debate'. The 'debate' was settled in 1789.
It renewed leftist caterwauling and whining and meddling interference.
