Homophobic Protester Arrested At Pulse Nightclub On Massacre’s One-Year Anniversary

Orlando police arrested a man who was protesting outside Pulse nightclub Monday following a ceremony marking the anniversary of the attack that left 49 dead and many more wounded.

Daniel Maguire was charged with breach of peace and resisting an officer without violence.

Police say the 36-year-old  ignored their request to move away from the club as local officials and members of the community were concluding a remembrance ceremony at the venue, which honored the victims and first responders.

Maguire and another protester were wearing shirts and holding signs with homophobic messages like “Sin = Death” and “Warning: All homos will burn like faggots in hell.”

As he was cuffed, the crowd began chanting “Love conquers hate.”

“We are not here to relive the horror of that day,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.
