Authorities in Port St. Joe, Florida say a man charged with a hate crime felt inconvenienced by his arrest because he had “only shot a n*gger.”
According to WJHG, Gulf County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Walton Henry Butler, 59, on Monday night for shooting Everett Gant, 32, in the head with a .22 caliber rifle.
According to a charging affidavit, Butler had referred to Pamela Rogers’ child and other children at his apartment complex with racial slurs.
Gant was shot between the eyes when he went to Butler’s apartment to confront him over the remarks, the documents said. Butler allegedly closed his sliding glass door and left Gant bleeding on the ground outside.
The suspect contacted 911 and had finished his dinner before Gulf County Sheriff Joe Nugent arrived.
Nugent recalled that Butler appeared “inconvenienced” by the arrest, saying that “he had only shot a n*gger.”
Walton, you know you done f*cked up, right? Now you’re going into a facility filled with “n*ggers,” we’re sure they would love to hear what you’re in jail for!
