Just commenting on Stand Your Ground laws. They're freaking stupid. Why don't we all arm ourselves and just go back in time to the Old West. How about commenting on the victim escalating the situation from a verbal conflict to a physical one?
"I feel threatened. Time to shoot to kill!" Unreal.
Liberals cannot assign blame to minorities. It’s part of the welcome package section 3: pandering for votes. Instead, when a minority does something wrong, they blame the system or even better “systemic racism” — whatever that means.
OK. The victim can be blamed for assault by means of a shove, sure. But such assault and then retreat upon seeing a firearm does not warrant a death sentence. Is the shove really what is most deserving of discussion here?
The moment you put your hands on someone, you have forfeited your right to life. All the man had to do was collect his family and go into his car like a civil member of society. His machismo cost his family greatly.
I’m curious if they gave her a parking ticket for illegally parking in the handicapped spot.
I’ve once been told the only things worth fighting for are the ones you’re willing to die for. You don’t know what situation you are putting yourself into when you put hands on someone. You don’t know what training they have or what they have on them (or who they know/come back with).
I don’t know why that guy needed to shove the man to the ground, the woman got out of the car looking to get into the face of the man for confronting her about pulling into the spot illegally. I think eyewitness accounts and audio are necessary here.
Obviously the woman shouldn’t have “parked” in that spot, but she was still in the car (for whatever that’s worth). The guy is not the morality police, so if he felt the need to say something, do so civilly. What took place after that, I don’t know. The woman clearly exits her vehicle at her discretion and appears to get into the mans face. If he opened her car door or dragged her out, that’s a completely different story. She seemed to escalate the situation which led to her husband coming out and attacking the man. Did he deserve to get shot? I do not believe so. Do we know what he said after shoving him to the ground and standing over him?
At such a severe disadvantage on the ground with a man standing over him, I could understand pulling his firearm. But he would need to articulate very well why he pulled the trigger when the man seeming retreated upon the firearm being drawn. Everything happens so fast in situations like this it’s very hard for us to say what SHOULD have been done, just a very unfortunate situation.
I personally think everyone was wrong in this situation, but not one that someone should die because of.
