Let’s see. Teen w/ prior burglary arrests (but never used a gun before...WOOPIED-F*-DO?!) is shot while INSIDE a fenced/gated property (can’t see how THAT was a ‘mistake’) @ 2AM (where’s the parents??)
I presume he was told to leave? The story doesn’t say. But dude was spooked enough to shoot (this IS New Orleans) from the kid ‘reaching for something’.
Still a good shot..30 feet to head. Love the older brothers comment: “He would steal — he was a professional thief, sure...”
Just another instance of the wrong non-verbal communication from the Amish. A simple “Excuse me” could have diffused the whole situation...or good PARENTING (where the blame lies).
I don’t doubt what he was up to, and I don’t know well enough the LA laws to know if the shooting was within its parameters.
Just pointing out some fundamental differences between this and the Trayvon situation in which Zimmerman IMO was on less reasonably questionable grounds IMO. Putting it simply, the evidence shows that Zimmerman’s life was in immediate danger, Trayvon was in the midst of committing a felony, and Zimmerman wasn’t in any position to be able to retreat.
