Black Vietnam (ERA) Veteran Shot for Supporting Donald Trump

Via Billy

A political discussion at a bar in Cleveland ended with a Vietnam vet being shot in the leg because of his support for Donald Trump.

60-year-old Paul Jones, Jr. was having a conversation with a friend at Winston’s Place near E. 131st Street and Miles Avenue on Monday evening.

A man sitting nearby overheard the chat and immediately became aggressive.

“He butted in the conversation,” Jones told WEWS from his hospital bed. “The conversation wasn’t directed at him or to him.”

The man continued to get more irate, going to his car to retrieve a gun before he returned and shot Jones in the thigh.

The shooter fled the scene and detectives are still searching for him.


  1. Sorry to nit-pick but .... He was a Vietnam Era vet. We are the same age and in 1972 he would have been 16 going on 17. I turned 17 in Oct. and joined in Nov. and they were not sending anybody over there.

    1. Sorry to nit-pick they were not sending anybody over there.

      No nit picking at all, Sir and I am thankful you pointed this out. I imagine few were sent once Nixon started drawing down except for Embassy/Consulate guards and those at the very end of which one was killed at DAO Headquarters TSN, where I worked.Being a Vietnam veteran, not that I did anything but have a good time, :) I am most eager to point out those who pretend they were and era doesn't cut it. I hope the news report made the mistake, but I doubt it.
