    "Protester, 20, grabbed a policeman's firearm at Las Vegas rally and said he wanted to KILL Donald Trump, after driving from California and learning how to shoot on a gun range the day before

    • Michael Steven Sandford, 20, arrested at Trump rally in Vegas on Saturday
    • Briton accused of attempt to grab a policeman's gun and fire at Republican
    • Sandford said he visited a gun range on Friday to learn how to shoot
    • He had been living illegally in the US for 18 months in car in New Jersey
    • Has a history of autism and obsessive compulsive disorder, court heard
    • Appeared in court yesterday and denied bail because he is a flight risk

    A British man arrested at a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas told authorities he tried to grab a police officer's gun and wanted to shoot the billionaire Republican presidential candidate.

    Protester Michael Steven Sandford, who appeared in court on Monday, even went to a gun range on Friday so he could learn how to fire a pistol.

    The 20-year-old was arrested at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino on Saturday after going for a metro police officer's gun.

    Sandford, who is originally from Surrey and was carrying a UK driver's licence, had been living illegally for 18 months in New Jersey after his visa expired and had been sleeping in his car.

    A secret service report said Sandford told officers he had been planning the Vegas assassination for around 12 months and believed he would die in the process.

    He also had tickets for a rally in Phoenix later that day in case the gun grab failed and told officers if Trump 'were on the street tomorrow, he would try this again'.

    The court heard from a public defender that Sandford is autistic, while his mother told federal magistrate judge George Foley that he had been treated for obsessive compulsive disorder and anorexia when younger.

    Despite living in Hoboken for 18 months, he did not have permission to be in the US and was unemployed and living out of his car.

    Sandford was charged with an act of violence on restricted grounds, according to a complaint filed on Monday in US District Court in Nevada.

    It cites a report by Special Agent Swierkowski, whose first name was not included, saying Sandford told officers he drove from California to kill Trump and went to a Las Vegas gun range the day before to learn to shoot.

    Sandford later went to a Trump rally at Treasure Island and approached a Las Vegas police officer to say he wanted an autograph from Trump.

    The report says Sandford was arrested after grabbing the handle of an officer's gun in an attempt to remove it. He was filmed by local station KLAS being led away.

    According to the complaint, Sandford had targeted officer Ameel Jacob’s weapon because it was in an unlocked position and would be the easiest way to acquire a gun to shoot Trump.

    Court papers read: ‘Sandford further stated that if he were on the street tomorrow, he would try this again.

    ‘Sandford claimed he had been planning to attempt to kill Trump for about a year but decided to act on this occasion because he finally felt confident to do it.’

    The British national had lived in Hoboken, New Jersey, for around 18 months and had driven to San Bernardino in California before heading to Las Vegas on Thursday.

    He told police he visited the Battlefield Vegas shooting range on Friday where he fired off 20 rounds from a 9mm Glock pistol to learn how to use it.

    Sandford also told investigators he had a ticket for a Trump rally in Phoenix, Arizona, for later on Saturday as a back-up.

    Authorities said on Saturday that law enforcement officers were able to take Sanford into custody with little disruption.

    The judge declined to grant bail to Sandford, pending a further hearing, saying the accused was a risk to the community and a flight risk.

    The Trump campaign directed questions to U.S. Secret Service, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    A spokesman for Britain's Foreign Office said: 'We are providing assistance following an arrest of a British national in Las Vegas.'

    So we {the UK} are exporting our 'care in the community' failures now? The lunatic who killed the MP, now another loon has a go at trump.... Another nutjob who no one gave a fuck about risking his life and other peoples . He is only 19... his life is over,whether he realises it or not. Now the question is, will the left wing media apologise for radicalising this sick man, as the right wing media and British leave campaign are being demonised for the other loonies actions?

    So Zuckerberg deletes "hate speech" (= right wing comments) on Facebook.


    N24's (German news channel) Facebook page mentioned this incident (Las Vegas) 10 hours ago.
    There a number of radical left wing comments (which have been reported to Facebook).
    No problem for Facebook though...these comments are still up.


    Two examples:

    [translated]


    "He has done everything right. This boy is my hero."

    "It's a pity...it's a pity...he would have done the right thing for the world."

    Why didn't he bring a gun himself? Do they have metal detectors at the door?
    Is the answer just because he's nuts?
