CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) A Florida man charged for his role in the beating of a black man during a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, has entered an Alford plea.

The Daily Progress reports 50-year-old Tyler Watkins Davis acknowledged prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him of malicious wounding without admitting guilt Friday. Davis was one of four charged in the Aug. 12, 2017, beating of DeAndre Harris.

Prosecutor Nina-Alice Antony said video shows Davis striking Harris in the head with a tire thumper, which resembles a club.

Davis' attorney, Matthew L. Engle, didn't dispute Harris' injuries, but said he would have argued Davis acted in "imperfect self-defense" if the case had gone to trial.Davis' attorney, Matthew L.

1. Alford Plea.....

.. you know I'm not totally sure I like that. But if it gets one more Nazi off the street's then I guess it's good enough. I would MUCH rather have heard a "Guilty" from either him OR a Jury though.

2. "Imperfect"... Now what's a "SUPERIOR WHITE MAN" saying he did something imperfectly for?

These super soldier aryans keep messing up.

3. For those who don't know what a "tire thumper" is

 

I was a trucker for many years. A tire thumper is a short club used to whack dual tires to make sure they aren't flat.

It's similar to a Shillelagh. I used to carry it to "check my tires" when I was in an area where I needed extra defense.

If you hit someone in the head with one of these, you intended to kill them. Period.

I hope that jug eared doofus DNA disaster gets exactly what's coming to him very, very soon.

I'D NEVER GET TIRED OF THUMPING HIM.
