There were no similarities in this case except it was not black on black shooting.
This is nothing more than attempt by the press to push the anti self defense concealed carry issues.
This is nothing like the Trayvon case. The kid posed no threat nor was he acting in a threatening manner. This is cold blooded murder.
“And notably, the man accused of firing into the car was arrested a day later.”
What’s notable about it? Gun owners that kill in cold blood (which may be the case here, but who knows, when the reporter is this biased) have been arrested since the first days that guns were invented. If this ‘reporter’ would just look it up, he’d even find people in Texas being arrested when they kill for no reason.
Can’t see anything notable about it, at least as it’s reported.
The stand your ground laws don’t make a lot of sense to me. Anyone can say they “felt threatened”. Self-defense is a more objective standard.
Extremely loud music is a passive-aggressive assault. Im not saying its worth murder but my guess is the shooter had been pushed and pushed and pushed and the next thing made him snap. I used to live in a zero-lot-line neighborhood. The white kids next door would have their black friends over and theyd sit in the driveway with music so loud the base rattled the windows and doors and made things vibrate off shelves. I think they did it to annoy their parents (children of divorce) who the kids manipulated into fighting with each other. I spoke with dad and he was annoyed to the point of homicide but did nothing because any attempt he made to control her kids lead to an argument. One day I went over and stuck my face through the window into the kids face, millimeters away. He turned down the music and I asked, in my most deranged ready-to-kill voice, You gonna be here long? They shut it off and never did it again. I could hear them turn it off as they rounded the entrance corner from then on.
Note, I found out later that the kids all carried guns. The guns were a fashion accessory. Every one of them was on the high school basketball team. One day when my neighbors kids werent along, the leading black player, with his car full of kids, stopped to see somebody who owed him money for drugs. The guy told him to shove it and the kid pulled his gun and shot the guy dead for dissing him.
All the kids in the car went to prison as accomplices. (Florida law, I think.) I spoke with the neighbors kids about it and they said that he had to do it, cause the guy dissed him. But after that they were much better behaved.
Having someone draw up to me at a stop light or at the gas pump, and give me the one-finger salute when I remark about the blaring imposition, requires a great restraint against this act of in-your-face trespassing on one's privacy.
"Freedom of speech" only goes so far. I think I might have the same negative reaction to someone engaging in street preaching with a bullhorn.
I believe what we are beginning to see is white people now reacting to the trend of unprovoked black on white assaults that have skyrocketed since Obama took power. I don’t think this will prove to be an isolated incident. White Americans have had it with the in your face black entitlement and ‘gansta’ culture.
A few weeks ago, my daughter was standing in line in a retail store when a young black man pushed his way to the head of the line and cut in. An older white man challenged him on this and he replied ‘we own you bitch’.
