ATLANTA -- An elderly man opened fire on a woman after her car came into contact with his motorized wheelchair at a central Georgia service station, authorities said Wednesday. She died shortly afterward at a hospital despite the efforts of a crowd of people to aid her.

Also not mentioned in the excerpt (along wiht the race of the VICTIM - WHITE), but from another source is that the shooter was charged with felony murder. I’m guessing that 0bamas people feel emboldened by his win.
We have an old guy here where I live that is always on the highway with his motorised chair.It’s a matter of time before someone hits him.
I see people driving their chairs down the street even when a sidewalk is available. Even at night.
As you say, accidents waiting to happen.
Considering some fat a$$hole in a motorized cart almost ran over my foot in Costco the other day I’m getting tired of belligerent douchebags in motorized fat carts thinking that the world owes them something.
I agree. He's entitled to a speedy trial and a speedy execution.
This elderly man has some seriously impaired cognitive issues.. Maybe he thinks white people are out to get him? I wouldn’t be surprised if Obama’s constant racism against whites has influenced him.
Probably. He was in no danger when she got out of the car. And, the article was not clear if her car hit his wheelchir or his wheelchair hit her car. I'm sure everyone remembers this wheelchair wacko He was just PO's and wanted to kill someone. So he did.
There was also an incident in Pacolet, SC (Spartanburg) where two elderly sisters of color (one in her 80s) performed a beat down on another customer because the customer wanted some privacy as she entered her PIN in the ATM. Seems the two old biddies had bought two lottery tickets and kept hanging around the counter, holding up the line. When the victim asked for privacy, the “ladies” got snooty and spit on the victim. In a reflexive reaction, victim slaps the “lady” who, with her co-hort, picked up bottles of windshield fluid and stated beating the victim. Cops were called. The two old biddies are now attired in orange jumpsuits. I am so sick of this entitlement attitude.
I'm with you on that 100%, but considering the "entitled" voted their their hero into office I suspect we're going to see a LOT more of it. Especially since the Republicans following their time honored tradition of giving in to Democraps on tax increases are simple granting the commander and thief in the white house more of what he wants. Anyone remember Big Bush's cave to the 'craps to "balance the budget?" We can see how well THAT balanced the budget. Expect more of the same.
You’re correct.. It could have been a simple case of Anger.. I could be wrong, but somehow I doubt he would have murdered a woman of color. All the facts are not in yet.. and prob’ly never will be.
Obama and his Administration have fueled a climate of ‘Don’t Trust Whitey’ in the black community. That is the first thing that came to mind when I read the story.. This man maybe suffering from dementia and may have thought this white woman was truly trying to hurt him. Sad.
Agreed, but who knows
All the facts are not in yet.. and probly never will be.
They facts seem fairly clear. What we'll never know is his motivation.
Maybe, but the police charged him with murder, and if he were impaired he probably would have been given a lesser charge.
Thank you for pointing that out
A Cat 4 Chimpout.
She was white and “disrespected” him so she deserved to die.
Obviously. And if they get a true jury of his peers, he'll be found not guilty for that very reason. She had no business driving her car where he wanted to drive his wheelchair after all he was doubly entitled for sure - handicapped and black - and probably triply entitled too - poor. Well he sure taught her a lesson.
Yes: we see them at stores here too. Getting out of the fat chairs and walking might do them some good.
I call them “scooter people,” as in “I see scooter people.”
Been on a cruise recently? My God! The disgusting fat hogs lined up at the buffet is a sight to see.
I spent 4 days at Disney Florida last week.
Saw more electric scooters there in 4 days than I had in my entire life combined.
These aren’t “handicapped” people in the sense I knew as a kid, they are the grossly obese who choose not to ambulate. In astounding numbers.
Every time you ride a shuttle bus it takes an extra 15 minutes for the driver to deploy the ramp and strap these buggies down to the bus.
You just reduced my desire to take a cruise. I took one last year on a Spanish cruise boat. There were a few plump ones, but not all that many. A worse esthetic problem was that women in their 60s and 70s felt obliged to wear skimpy bikinis at the pool - best passed quickly with eyes averted. The biggest problem was that stand up comedy in spanish isn't all that funny when you don't speak it.
