It’s Seattle, waiting for the Good Samaritans to be charged with assault and hate crimes.
Wearing a hoody and having a trayvon name variant... Great Combo!
Another one of 0bamao’s sons.
AQ hijackers take note. The next one of you who stands up on a plane and tries something is going to come back to earth very, very dead.
LOL! I didn’t notice that! Holy smoke, “Trevonnte” LOL...Like Treyvon but with a flourish!
The Wild, Wild West! I love it!
First, gun v. nothing I'm giving up my phone. It's just a phone that I can brick as soon as I find the internet. If you have to fight, you control the gun but be violent about it. A guy wrestled to the ground and controlled who won't release the gun needs to leave that bus on a stretcher.
The guy who grabbed the gun did a pretty good job of it.
No criminal history SINCE TURNING 18! I’ll bet if you were to look at his juvenile record, you would find all kinds of crap.
Yeah he is damn lucky he didn’t get shot because he put himself right in front of the gun, maybe it wasn’t loaded or real or the guy didn’t have it in him to pull it, whatever reason, but that is definitely the wrong way to go about it. There was an exact case like that 2 years ago here in New York city where a gunman barged into a gas station cashiers booth and pointed the gun at the cashiers face and exactly like this guy the cashier instinctively pushed the gun away then tried to grab it and wrestle the guy and BOOM the cashier was shot and died at the scene. Same kind of video, they show the gunman pointing it right at him. It’s the wrong way to react but again it’s an instinctive reaction.
Obviously this racist lynch mod didn’t realize that Ashtrey was entitled to rob them. He was tired of waiting for the government to do it for him.
I was wondering,if it was loaded or a real gun too.
I would comply while looking for an opening - and then slit the thug’s throat with my very sharp (and completely legal) tactical folding knife. That is, if i wasn’t carrying my 9mm at the time.
PS This not just Internet bravado. Been mugged twice. Or rather, been the victim of attempted muggings twice. They both has to be somewhere else real fast when I pulled out my blade instead of my cash.
PPS Only try such if you have seriously trained with a blade...
Action beats reaction.
A good sharp blade would have help out. I can think of many things one could carry if you live in one of those no weapons allowed areas.
He was just trying to get paid.
Jes takin what’s righfully his. After all, slavery, 3/5 a man, trayvon martin makes it right.
