mistake #1 - arguing with a woman wearing camo
mistake #2 - doing it in Texas
Mistake # 3 swinging at a camo wearing woman in Texas
Interesting. Video seems to show a man committing harassment and assault against a woman, then continuing to commit those crimes after she retrieved a rifle from the trunk of her car. Based on the video evidence presented in the press, I would characterize the woman as the victim of assault, and the man as the perpetrator thereof. The video appears to depict justified self-defense.
**a 23-year-old woman shot and killed a man with a rifle.**
Who had the rifle? The man?
Can’t see the video behind the corporate firewall. What were the races of those involved? If she was white and he was hispanic/black, we might have another Zimmerman trial on our hands.
Then again, this IS Texas. Likely cooler heads will prevail.
She just didnt know him, you know. Because if shed have known my brother, shed have known that Poochie wouldnt have hurt nobody.
Cousin Pookie PING
...good thing her name isn’t Zimmerman
Clearly a racist incident.
(Both are black)
Black on Black, nothing to see here, no reason for Jesse, Al or Obama to comment or be concerned. Just normal relations, no racism involved.
The “reporter” got it wrong - the guy didn’t swing an umbrella at the woman. He held the umbrella in his right hand and swung with his left. It looked like a clumsy or drunk knife attack to me.
The dead man pulled a knife on the shooter, but according to his brother, “he didn’t want to hurt nobody”. She may have pushed her luck in terms of the law by firing multiple shots once he was down, but I hope the police give her a break. She may not have known whether he was still a threat and about to get back up, and she’s not a white Hispanic so there is no reason to prosecute her.

If Obama had a grandpa...
Well, one whom he knew, that is, and who wasn’t white and so forth....
She shot that man for much less than Zimmerman shot Trayvon. Zimmerman showed restraint!
Black on black.
If she got a rifle from the trunk of her car she could have gotten in the car and fled.
If she’s White and the dead man non-White, there will be a trial and she’ll have to explain the above.
Way at the bottom of the article is this....
“Police said the woman was pumping gas when Daniel approached and began making sexual advances toward her. She repeatedly told the suspect to go away, but he continued to harass her. The man then advanced toward her with a knife, which is when she armed herself.
The case is being referred to the grand jury. No charges have been filed at this time.”
So IF the man was using a knife would this be considered self defense?
I LOVE how the media play up the story, a lot of people would have only read the first couple of sentences.
At about 1:05 in the video, the reporter says that police were “wondering why Daniel was murdered”. Murder is a criminal act — the reporter should have said something less judgmental, like “killed”.
Oh, the reporter also says the man swung an umbrella at the woman. If you look at 00:44, you can clearly see that he does not swing the umbrella — he swings his other arm, which appears to hold a knife.
Never bring a knife...
