That the wife’s hand was shot shielding her husband is not a compelling argument to me. Seems more logical that she was attempting to restrain him.
Well, they have a theater full of witnesses, so I’m sure they’ll be able to determine that.
That’s something most here haven’t noticed. I’m wondering if the texter didn’t trigger an instinctual response by the ex-cop. Throwing popcorn isn’t exactly adult behavior. It does indicate the amount of rage the husband had building or it could have been mistaken for a diversionary tactic prior to an attack. The older ex-cop was facing a much younger man.
The one thing no one seemed to want to address in the Trayvon Zimmerman confrontation was the amount of rage that lead to the attack on Zimmerman.
that she was trying to shield her husband makes sense to me... it is a natural reaction... now my husband would have been mad at me if i had tried to shield him... my instructions are to move the hell out of the way... if he dies trying to defend us, then he dies... but he sure as heck does not want me to be harmed in the process... (same instructions to our kids)...
If you've ever ridden in the front passenger seat with a woman driver who is also a mother, don't be surprised if, when she has to stop suddenly, she simultaneously, instinctively and forcefully places her hand over your chest. It's a female universal to protect their loved one from incoming.
Her hands must be faster than a speeding bullet. RME
