Fall River veteran and Trump supporter allegedly attacked for second time in less than two months



A Fall River veteran known for holding signs in support of President Donald Trump and building the border wall, has been allegedly attacked for the second time since the beginning of June.

On June 2nd, 82-year-old Charlie Chase was allegedly attacked and body slammed while holding a Trump campaign sign.

This afternoon, Chase was out holding a sign in support of Trump, when according to Chase, someone went to steal his signs and started swearing at him. Charlie hit a crack in the sidewalk when running to the suspect’s car to try and get his signs back and fell down injuring his arm.

Chase said two female bystanders helped him get the signs back.

Chase stated that he has cancer and heart problems.

While Chase mentioned today’s incident was bad, it did not compare to the incident on June 2nd.

In addition to holding signs for Trump and the border wall, Chase also went on to say he also holds a “blue lives matter” sign in support of police.

Four days after the initial attack, Chase returned to his usual spot with the backing of dozens of fellow Trump supporters.

      I wonder why the prosecution would agree to delay pre trial?

    The “tolerant” left…torching the businesses of innocent shopkeepers, denying the 1st Amendment rights of invited speakers on college campuses and threatening those guests with bodily harm if they try and exercise them, looting, assault, “Occupy” groups turning parks into personal commodes, damaging public property, blocking traffic on highways…heaven knows what they would do if they weren’t so “tolerant”…

    Problem is in this dump of a state, the judge will offer him an apology and a backrub as this leftist garbage walks right out of the courtroom.These animals have nothing to fear.
