Man Kills Pro-Trump Boss, drapes American flag over him

NBCMiami-

A Florida man who co-workers said holds anti-government beliefs is accused of fatally stabbing his pro-President Trump boss during an argument at a construction site, an arrest affidavit said.

Mason Trever Toney, 28, was arrested Monday on a first-degree murder charge in the killing of William Steven Knight, according to an Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrest affidavit.

The affidavit said deputies were called to the work site along Florida’s Turnpike near Orlando around 10:30 a.m. and found the 28-year-old Knight lying dead next to an excavator with an American flag thrown on the side of his body.

Multiple co-workers told deputies that Toney and Knight were friends outside of work and were traveling from one work site to another when they got into an argument, the affidavit said. The co-workers said Knight was pro-Trump, while Toney is anti-government and “very out spoken about his beliefs that the government is bad and out to get him,” the affidavit said.

The co-workers said they had started working at the site when they heard Knight yelling for help, ran over and saw Toney stabbing Knight repeatedly with a trowel, the affidavit said.

Toney then jumped into a construction truck and took off, but was later taken into custody, officials said.

The American flag found next to Knight’s body was brand new, and co-workers said Toney had brought a backpack to work with him Monday, calling it unusual since he never brings a bag and shouldn’t have needed tools since all are provided at the job site, the affidavit said.

Toney was booked into jail, where he was being held without bond Tuesday, records showed. Attorney information wasn’t available.

  1. Trowels are now required to be constructed of thin latex – anyone caught with a steel trowel on the jobsite will be terminated immediately.

  2. Anti government persons are actually extreme pro government once they are in power. Anti gov is leftist cover until they get in power.

  3. Bernie supporter?
    He was probably driven mad due to his simple mind not being able to deal with repeatedly losing political arguments with his boss.

    They have no clue how to make money.
    Going to work everyday, is just to much work.
    The rich have so much money, they should get paid for playing video game all day.

  5. Mason Trever Toney sounds like the kinda guy that probably couldn’t legally own a gun. Glad that worked out.

  6. When government confiscates trowels only criminals will have trowels. Or something.

    Proof positive that anything can be a murder weapon when put in the hands of the criminally insane.

    I need to register my trowels, axes, hammers, shovels and chunks of rope with Governor Blackface first thing in the morning. I never realized what a threat I am.

    Matter of fact, I could belt sand someone to death. And I have a weed whacker and I’m not afraid to use it.

  7. This episode (and earlier antifa episodes) of violence should be chronicled in the history of America’s SCW (Second Civil War). Because if the Left effs with us in the election, there will be one. With the Left’s calls to violence at every turn, this is not a case of “some people did something.”

  8. It was an assault trowel. Only federally licensed operationally trained operational operators, operating on operations authorized by ████████████ [redacted], should be allowed to have assault trowels.

  9. Sounds like he planned it out, except for the prison time part.
    Why did anybody need a gun at work? I give you Exhibit
    note: pick better friends.
