I hope someday to shake that taxi driver’s hand! He took a bullet in the back of the head, turned around and blew the attacker away.

What a man!

As for the perp, good riddance!

"Cabbie who shot, killed passenger won't be charged"

That absurd headline leads me to believe that the editor is so delusionally anti self-defense that he would have preferred that the innocent cabbie die instead of the guilty-as-Hell perp.

,” investigators do want to know how Brooks acquired the firearm.”

I’m sure he bought it legally after filling out the paperwork at the gunstore/s

Seeing as this is Orlando, the only reason the cab driver has not been charged yet is that Angela Corey hasn’t had a chance to “take a second look” at the evidence...

Exactly. "Passenger" sounds like some innocent customer who got caught in the crossfire. Correct title should have read: "Cabbie who shot, killed armed robber won't be charged".

Report: "Cabbie who shot, killed passenger won't be charged"

Response: Was the passenger wearing a "Hoodie" when he was shot? Did the passenger have a can of ice tea on his person? Did a search of the passenger's person after he was shot reveal he had a box of Skittles in his pocket?

Some of those cab drivers can be pretty hard-headed.

Someone needs to do a sendup of Elton John’s “Levon” substituting “Trayvon.” “And his name was Trayvon...”
