Political violence is the fear of many observers of the polarized scene in 2020.
Now, a troubling incident appears to show that it’s already a reality. Fox News reports:
The St. Clair Shores homeowner, who wished to stay anonymous, said he and his girlfriend were in an upstairs bedroom at the time of an explosion, which blew out drywall, shattered glass and caused cracks in the ceiling, FOX 2 of Detroit reported.
The homeowner said: “We’re thinking maybe because I’m a big Trump supporter…I mean everyone has people that don’t like them … but not to the extent of trying to blow my house up.”
Surveillance video of the incident showed a man running up to his house and throwing an explosive through a front window, according to the station. Another recording captured a man running out of a pick-up truck and throwing a second explosive.
“We were really scared. I mean when you feel your house shake and explode and smoke, you don’t know what’s going on,” the homeowner told Detroit’s WDIV-TV.
We live in scary times. Who knows where this will end?
