Retired LEO Phillip Thiessen, 55, was a US Marine Veteran who loved to ride his Harley. On July 3, a man named Daniel Navarro intentionally drive his Dad’s truck head on into Thiessen’s motorcycle…because he believes anyone who rides a Harley is a “white racist.” The Marine veteran is now dead, and Navarro is in jail.
Suspect Daniel Navarro – the “white racist” excuse for murder
“According to a criminal complaint, around 6:45 p.m., investigators found the victim deceased in the roadway near a motorcycle, with witnesses trying to render aid. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. A red 2004 Dodge Dakota pickup was nearby — having crashed into a pole off the roadway. Prosecutors said Navarro, the driver of the pickup, said he was in the westbound lane of Winnebago Drive when he intentionally crashed into the motorcycle head-on. Witnesses said the truck swerved into the westbound lane and struck the motorcycle — with the bike flying into the air.
Investigators said there were no signs the pickup braked before or after the crash.”
Why didn’t the pickup brake? Because the driver, Daniel Navarro believed that white people ride motorcycles and white people are racists. He is now charged with First Degree Intentional Homicide and First Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety- both are being charged as hate crimes.
“Navarro said that if President Donald Trump and white people are going to create the world we are living in, he has no choice and that people are going to have to die.” Fond du Lac County Sheriff Ryan Waldschmidt
Navarro made other whacked out statements that included: “thinking about targeting a white person and killing them with a vehicle earlier that day,” and “picked a motorcycle because he wanted the person to die.” He told police that he definitely knew what he did was wrong, which is an indicator that he may not be able to claim insanity in spite of some of his weird statements. His excuse stemmed from how “other white people” had treated him in his life, which is no excuse whatsoever. The officer who interviewed him said that he has a “thousand yard stare.”
From Phillip’s obituary:
Phillip joined the US Marine Corps in February of 1984, and served for 4 years. He then was a Police Officer with the City of Fairfax, VA for 26 years. After retiring from the City of Fairfax Police Department, Phillip was a Special Agent with the WI Department of Justice for almost 2 years before officially retiring in Fond du Lac, WI.
Thiessen will be missed by his daughter, his sister, and all of his extended family and friends who knew him as a loving and kind man who helped his community.
This incident should prove that racism runs both directions, in spite of the rhetoric of leftist groups. The color of a person’s skin has nothing whatever to do with the color of their blood. We all bleed the same.
