“Police say McMahon also told the family he was going back to his apartment to get a gun, and he returned with something wrapped in a towel that looked like a gun”

Of course it was rum. Everyone knows you always carry your rum wrapped in a towel. I’m pretty sure the towel was the highest selling bit of merchandise with ol’ Jack Sparrow’s face on it!

Colorado gets more sunshine than most of the country, so there are a lot of leathery mofos here to start with, but this kind of insecure, toxic aggression is usually comorbid with an intense fear that applying sunscreen or moisturizer would turn them gay.

All that bile can’t be good for the liver.

To be surprisingly fair to this asshole, that looks like rosacea which tends to get worse with alcohol and sunlight. No correlation with racism per se that I know of but very common among white people.
