Corrections Cop, read again. The guy who drew the gun was not the guy making threats.
Rodriguez told Williams, "People like you should be shot."
From the article:
IE, the guy who started the whole thing was NOT the one who drew.
The paper didn't label the photo. Picture could be Williams or Rodriguez.
If it's Williams, what's to say that Rodriguez isn't six inches and 80 lbs heavier, and a weight lifter?
Again, there is not enough information in the case... and it helps if you actually attribute the verbal shenanigans to the correct speaker.
