The armed guard who protected Geraldo Rivera as he covered the Baltimore riots for Fox News has been under arrest since May 1 2015. According to the The Baltimore Sun, the guard “has been in jail since May 1 for carrying guns around Baltimore protest w/o an MD carry permit.” The Sun reports that a Baltimore cop spotted a man. . .
holding handcuffs and an ammunition box.
Officer John Potter then watched Donald F. Scott [above] — who was working as a security guard for Fox News at the time — open the rear hatch of a Chevy Suburban and pull a Glock handgun from his waistband, according to the officer’s account . . .
According to Potter’s statement of probable cause, he signaled to other officers after spotting the Glock and Scott was detained. The Glock had one bullet in the chamber. Officers then found a loaded Cobra revolver in a second holster on Scott’s waist, the statement said . . .
In a bail filing in court, the state said Scott “poses a serious threat to public safety.” Pretrial services incorrectly found Scott had a criminal conviction in the District of Columbia, according to [Assistant Public Defender Anthony] Strollo.
Scott is being held on $350,000 bond, facing “two gun charges.” Breitbart News previously reported that on August 28 Rivera described the Second Amendment as “blind and stupid.” His entire statement:
Like I’ve always said, the Second Amendment, the provision that gives every American the right to keep and bear arms, is blind and stupid. In its relentless pimping for the gun industry, the NRA has unleashed an avalanche of deadly weapons on this gun-crazy country. Just as [it] protects access to weapons for cops and hunters, it also protects access to weapons for domestic abusers, mental patients, jerk-offs on the no-fly list, all-around dim bulbs, and now little children.
Yet the former Gerald Rivers had an armed [law breaking] security guard while in Baltimore.
