He Destroyed Trump’s Hollywood Star - Regrets It Now

We all know there is no shortage of people who disagree with Donald Trump. And as citizens of the United States we are given freedom of speech, giving us the right to say whatever we want about the President. However, that does not mean citizens can display their anger in violent or destructive ways. One man in LA, James Otis did not care and decided to show his disdain for the President and the state of the nation by destroying his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Heir to Otis Elevator Company, James Otis, dressed up as a construction worker and took a pick axe and sledgehammer to the star. He told police he spent three weeks preparing to destroy the star, visiting it often to access the area so he could carry out the action "safely, carefully and successfully."

Before his arrest he also explained, "I just sort of had enough with Mr Trump's aggressive language toward women and his behavior, his sexual violence with women and against women. I've had personally in my own family four people who have been assaulted or have had sexual violence happen to them. it all became very personal." President Trump has denied every sexual assault accusation but many constituents do not believe him.

Otis was released from jail on $20,000 bail. After his release, the millionaire told the media, "I admitted my mistakes and am now dealing with my consequences, unlike Mr. Trump, who has never admitted what he’s done. And that’s why I destroyed the star; I broke the law. He’s a serial liar and misogynist and that’s why we’re here: to try to address that and help those women who told Mr. Trump they won’t stand for it anymore."

Otis does not regret his decision to destroy the star but says will will accept the consequences of his actions. The consequences would mean a $10,000 fine and three years in prison if he is convicted of the crime.
