Seattle — One man was left trembling after another pulled a loaded firearm on him and reportedly demanded that he apologize to black people for all the wrongs white people have done to them. Police arrested the suspect, finding the firearm and ammunition.
Chikwanha E. Nyashanu, 35-years old, is being held on $100,000 bail with prosecutors seeking to increase the amount to $500,000, according to Brandi Kruse of MyNorthwest.com. “King County District Court Judge Arthur R. Chapman called his actions ‘inexplicable’ and deemed him a danger to the community,” she wrote.
The incident reportedly occurred after 9 PM. After the alleged victim called police, the suspected perpetrator was soon arrested–after being tased. Nyashanu was reportedly identified by the victim as the “same person who had just pointed a handgun at him for 15-20 seconds and demanded he apologize for all the things white people did to black people,” reported Kruse.
She added that court documents revealed the suspect as a black male and the victim as a white male.
If the allegations against Nyashanu prove true, the entire ordeal could have been avoided had the alleged gunman devotedly watched MSNBC’s Chris Matthews evening program, as Matthews recently apologized on behalf of all white people.
