Louisville Metro Police say they’ve arrested a man who terrorized his Hispanic neighbors.
According to an arrest warrant, the trouble started on Aug. 31, on Lipps Lane, off Preston Highway. Police say a Hispanic family was arriving home when they noticed that their neighbor, 51-year-old Douglas Poynter, had painted the words “KKK wants you to burn” on the side of his fence, facing their house.
Poynter also had erected a cross with the word “burn” written underneath it, police say.
According to the arrest warrant, he was still standing in his yard — covered in paint — when the family arrived. When they asked him why he would do this, Poynter allegedly swore at them yelling, “F____ you. F_____ all you immigrants.”
"He started threatening me and said the first chance I get, you’re mine. I’m gonna shoot you. Then he started pointing his shotgun out of the window," said Jesus Alamo.
Police say Poynter then swung his fist at Jesus Alamo, who pushed him back.
The victim’s 9-year-old step-daughter then said she was going to call the police.
Poynter them went inside his home and came out with a shotgun, police say, pointing at the Hispanic father, who was holding his 22-month-old son in his arms at the time, and telling him that he would shoot him the first chance he got, either in the front or the back.
When police arrived a short time later, they allegedly saw that Poynter was drunk.
The next day, on Sept. 1, the family came outside their home and immediately detected the stench of gasoline, according to the warrant, and noticed a puddle of gas on the porch. The father then told his family to go out the patio door, but they allegedly noticed gasoline on a rubber mat outside that door as well. When the family attempted to exit from a laundry room door, they found another puddle of gasoline, according to the warrant.
They decided to call the police.
While they were waiting for officers to arrive, Poynter allegedly walked out of his home with the shotgun and began waving it around, pointing it at the father and saying, “Sooner or later, you’re gonna die. You and your family.”
Police say they arrived a short time later, saw Poynter with the gun and drew their own weapons.
They ultimately advised the victim’s family to file a criminal complaint. 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.
An arrest warrant was issued on Sept. 2, and Poynter was arrested later that afternoon. He was charged with criminal trespassing, attempted arson, terroristic threatening, wanton endangerment, harassment and menacing.
In court on Wednesday, Poynter shook his head as court officials described what he’s accused of doing.
By the afternoon, he was released from jail on a $10,000 bond.

They gave his ass bail….fuck the US.

Oh my god. This is fuck unreal. They gave him bail. I’m mad af.

Why the fuck was he not charged with attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, why was he not arrested on the spot, making treats to kill the family, waving around a shot gun, and wasn’t arrested on sight.

And why the hell aren’t hate crime charges being brought against this man???????

By the afternoon, he was released from jail on a $10,000 bond.

People of color get shot on their front porch. White people get slaps on the wrist. smfh.

They let him go the first time he waved his shotgun at them because he was drunk.
He damn near burned the house of a POC family down with them in it and uses the shotgun as a reason to keep them inside a house he intended to burn down
And they let him go on bail the second time

"

This reality is a bit harder to swallow: There are more white people in the US and Canada because the US and Canada were established using the systematic genocide of Native peoples, the theft of Native lands, and the labour of enslaved peoples in the past and immigrant peoples currently who were and are never meant to stay or survive.

And now you’re uncomfortable. Good.

When you accept and acknowledge that census figures reflect a long history of marginalization, it is preposterous to use these same figures as the benchmark to which you measure the inclusion of marginalized people.

Daniele Watts' Boyfriend Throws Her Under The Bus | MadameNoire →

"Although he appears to be strongly defending Daniele in his Facebook post, full-length audio from his exchange with the responding officer seems to suggest otherwise.
“This is a very sensitive subject to her. You know, the black and white,” Brian began explaining to the officer. “This is about the third time we’ve gotten accosted for it.”
“It’s not as sensitive to me because I understand where you’re coming from,” Brian continued.
“She’s just using it as her crutch. It’s fine. You get used to it after a while,” said the officer.
“I bet,” adds Brian. “I understand your job so […] I know you don’t wanna deal with stuff like this. This is not a protect and serve issue.”
After a bit more small talk, Brian and the officer returned to their discussion about Daniele’s belief that she is being targeted because of her race.
“She needs to not see everything in black and white,” said the officer.
“No pun intended,” Brian joked. “[If a Black officer pulled up] it would’ve been the same thing. In the future, that might be what has to happen for her to…Hey, I’ll bring that up. That’s a good idea. Thank you. I’ll share that with her and I’ll do that from a perspective of you not sharing that with me, but like, ‘Hey babe, what if it was a Black cop? Would it be the same thing?’”
Once officers placed her in the patrol car Brian responds:
“It’s her first time being in the car. It’ll be good.”
Brian can even be heard laughing awkwardly after Daniele was cuffed. SMH.”
