A story emerged recently about a protester who was caught on camera berating the widow of police officer who died in the 9/11 attack. The man worked for a charity, a group that wasn’t pleased to have been dragged into the spotlight by his actions. Now they’ve responded and announced he has been fired.
“Steve Wilson was caught on camera cursing at the woman and telling her that her husband deserved to ‘rot in the grave’ at the Patriot Prayer protest in Portland, Oregon, on October 13,” Daily Mail writes.
His rant began when she stood in front of him and he thought she was purposefully blocking his path. “You’re going to block me now? You’re a f****** snarky little idiot shut the f*** up,” he said.
She then confronted him directly. “Try something, b****,” she said.
“I’m not,” Wilson said. “I’m not going to punch you. I’m not like your husband, I’m not going to hit you.”
“I’m not married,” she said.
Their exchange went downhill from there. “I’m not like your f**** cop boyfriend who’s going to knock you out,” he said.
“My husband died in 9/11,” the woman replied.
He then offered his opinion on the NYPD, and said “NYPD are a bunch of f***** sodomized… f****** sodomizing immigrants with their bully sticks. So yeah, your f****** husband should probably should f***** rot in the grave, sodomizing f****** immigrants.” He then told her “Your f****** husband should probably should f***** rot in the grave.”
There’s more to this story. The woman hasn’t been publicly identified. Some reports say her story about being a widow is false, yet that hasn’t tempered the outrage at Wilson’s treatment of her.
