The mail-bomb suspect's van, annotated



News crews arrived at the auto parts store in Florida where authorities arrested mail-bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc, 56, before FBI agents could secure and remove a white van that purportedly belongs to Sayoc. Television cameras obtained images of the van, revealing windows covered with apparent images of President Trump and slogans and rhetoric common among Trump supporters. Mixed in were graphics apparently created by Sayoc himself. Authorities soon covered the van with a heavy blue tarp.

The images spread quickly on social media, with several people indicating that they’d seen — and photographed — the van in the area of Florida where Sayoc lived. Natalie Kline photographed the van in May 2017 and provided photos to The Washington Post.

There are three large windows, two on the driver’s side and one on the passengers' side, covered with images and text. The double doors on the passenger side each had images covering the windows; the doors at the back of the van were covered mostly with text. The only windows without some sort of graphics were the drivers' side window and, presumably, the windshield.

This image, a digitally created collage of images and text, appears on both the rear passenger and middle driver’s side windows.

1. The picture of Trump on the tank cracks me up

As if he'd ever be personally involved in a military action.

2. I have to wonder, is that even legal?

The man literally has almost no rear vision other than his mirrors. And when I call him a man, I mean in biological terms only.

4. I think so.

There are some vans that have no windows whatever aft of the front doors.

3. But he's a patriot and a real 'merican. He should be allowed to put his

stickers any dog-damn place on the car he wants--- even block the front windshield if he wants.
