“I’m not a violent person. I haven’t been in a long time,” said David Wilcox, a longtime Donald Trump supporter. His comment this week comes as a vague explanation as to why he did not fight back against Chicago protesters last week when they attacked him. The group of violent anti-Trump teenagers savagely beat Wilcox as he curled into the fetal position and tried to escape.
According to local news outlets, Wilcox revealed he didn’t fight back because after serving many years in Stateville prison himself, he didn’t want to fight back and risk returning to incarceration. Wilcox also unveiled that he has not been violent since August 1986, when he was forced to defend himself against muggers. After killing one of them in self-defense, Wilcox was convicted for murder.
When the anti-Trump attack sparked last week, the distraught Wilcox said he had “prayed to God to never put me in a violent situation again.” In fact, Wilcox claims he would rather “get stabbed and die” than risk hurting anyone else. This man was mocked CNN Democratic strategist Symone Sanders for being a Trump supporter, despite his innocence.
However, following the attack, Wilcox revealed he wants the teens to face responsibility for their actions. “I’m gonna be at every court date, and I’m gonna make sure I can do everything I can to where they get locked up,” said Wilcox.
