Instead he’s probably gonna end up in Prison. Because he chased them. I’d argue that I didn’t know if they were going to go kill someone else, so I had to protect lives.

The 30-year-old man was driving a Mercedes-Benz SUV when he was approached by Jermaine Johnson and Kaiison Lewis...

I don’t know New York that well, but it seems like there are better places to be if you’re driving a Mercedes.

It seems more likely that it was a drug deal fine bad.

If the shooter was an off duty cop, a lot of people at Free Republic would be demanding a First Degree Murder charge.

It should (and will) be a first degree murder charge no matter who the shooter was. In this case it's a three-fer: two dead Obama sons and a third in the slammer.

That would depend on the context. There are a lot of cops who’s first reaction is to shoot or beat the crap out of somebody where it was very clear that a killing didn’t need to he done.

Johnson, “a loving, caring, brother,” became the father of a boy last month, said his sister, Yanique Johnson, 26

Loving daddy ... tried a carjacking and got dead.

Sad for the baby but it's the thug dad's fault.

Apparently, this isn’t the worst of New York neighborhoods, but it’s next to it.

Looks like an older Mercedes ML, not really an extravagant vehicle.

Seems like only the Daily News is covering the story, and they’re not showing pictures. Being held without bail.

Almost certainly black-on-black crime.

No doubt it's an unregisterd, and thus, illegal gun..also..the shooter probably has a record..likely several open warrants...

I think it was black on black. Not that this justifies it, but I guess the thugs picked the wrong target. Ooops.

The owner shouldn’t have pursued them because from a legal point of view, this makes him subject to a serious level of felony. But when the press says “Mercedes,” it’s not a recent model, judging by the pics, and the owner may have been somebody who acquired it quite legitimately by working for it and was really mad when the thugs tried to take it away from him. Sometimes a person just can’t take it anymore, and the courts and the cops (especially under DeBlasio) are way too lenient with black on black crimes and he knew he’d never see the car again, so he probably just lost it.

Hope the courts are sympathetic now!

>"MB driver was a dope dealer,"

And if they freely sold drugs in the drug store again he would have had a respectable job!

How anyone can justify Nazi death squads kicking in doors and murdering US citizens in the middle of the night is astounding!

So you passed unconstitutional laws deciding upon pain of death, enslavement, robbery and brutality what medicines a person can or can't take and how they can and can't aquire them! There is no justice if the laws are unjust. Enjoy the ACA!

NASCAR is the ONLY good thing to come from prohibition! End it now.

If the Mercedes guy fired at them when they were in their own vehicle, and they were not threatening him, I don’t see how he can be blameless.

I was trying to highlight the double standard that has emerged at Free Republic in recent months concerning police shootings.

In this case the context is two perps running away from a potential crime victim who is not a cop.

In the Comments, there is a high level of sympathy and a moderate level of support for the non-cop shooter.

There are no outraged Comments at all that condemn his decision to kill the two perps, and no Comments at all that demand he be severely punished.

Now, imagine if the shooter had been an off duty cop.

There would be dozens of Comments here screaming for the cop's head on the end of a stick.

Conversely, if it were a cop, many would be here licking his boots.

See how that works?

Can you judge and discuss a situation on its own merits without sinking to the libtard argument mentality?

Yes. It is legal for American citizens to own firearms. But, the communist government in New Yawk City doesn't recognize the citizens' legal right to possess firearms. And with the "SAFE" act, rights in the rest of New Yawk ere endangered too.

But, since those same said citizens keep voting for these jerk offs, they deserve the government they get. They've relegated themselves from citizen to subject.

It's just unfortunate when decent citizens have to unavoidably travel through liberal hellholes.

I see this coming to a head when some out-of-stater goes traveling through with his legally owned firearm runs into trouble. And when the JBTs respond and then try to crack down on the victim, the dutiful citizen drops a few JBTs.

Lewis, 23, was shot in the head and midsection and taken to Jacobi Medical Center, where he died. Johnson, 28, who was in the driver’s seat, was shot in the midsection, and died at the scene, officials said.

Johnson, “a loving, caring, brother,” became the father of a boy last month, said his sister, Yanique Johnson, 26.

It doesn’t even fit low degree murder

They drew on him and tried to take his car

They retreated

He killed them

If his guns legal then in Texas he’d be free already

In yankeeland ...low level.manslaughter at most

The laws on no longer a threat vary

The further from Houston or Birmingham you get the more likely a charge

Still...no higher than a D level felony

If the gun is legal he can claim they said they were leaving him to go kill his auntie and baby mama....he had to do something

If the gun is not on permit then he’ll do a year...maybe 20 months

Like that ball player named after household cleaners...

It is libtard utopia
