Beto, the candidates nickname for Robert, has never denied being arrested but in an effort to double down on previous claims that police officers are killing unarmed people at a “frightening level” is now raising the stakes even higher that his base will enjoy any anti-cop rhetoric he can muster. Beto happily took to the internet Saturday morning with his normal high energy approach:
HAVE I BEEN ARRESTED? YES. HAVE I PARTICIPATED IN INSIDER TRADING? YES. WAS A PART OF A HACKING CULT? YES. DID I WRITE ABOUT A FICTIONAL DESIRE TO KILL CHILDREN? YES. BUT WAS I CAUGHT BECAUSE I HAVE A LATINO NICKNAME? PROBABLY. AT THIS POINT IT’S SAFE TO SAY I WAS ONLY ARRESTED BECAUSE OF MY NICKNAME, WHICH IS DISTINCTLY LATINO.
