Best quote ever. I can almost imagine a line like that coming out of Al Pacino's mouth in an intense movie. Well, before he started sucking balls as an actor anyway.

I'm surprised, dead guy was clearly the aggressor and leveled him. Good case to appeal.

But he was aggressive AND black, according to AoG that = he deserves to be shot to death.

Pretty sure that is what AoG and TI were arguing in the original thread, guy was aggressive and possibly lethal in his actions so he deserved to get shot.

The dude arrived to harass the woman in the car and less than 2 minutes later he has shot and killed a man. He was pushed to the ground and then the assailant put distance between them when he saw the gun. Drawing the gun was probably justified in that moment. Firing was not from what I just watched.

As a gun carrier he was responsible for creating this situation in the first place. He apparently parked illegally while harassing a lady for parking illegally while carrying a firearm. You DO NOT go seeking out situations to get involved in while carrying a gun. PERIOD. That's why it was manslaughter. I don't believe he went out anywhere with intent to kill someone but he did go out with intent to harass people for minuscule things to get his rocks off knowing he had a gun just in case things went wrong for him. It should serve as an excellent precedent for other overly emboldened gun owners who think they're some hero.

You also have to consider that man was defending his own PREGNANT wife from some redneck asshole. This wasn't just some guy walking up to another random guy and shoving him to the ground for no reason. Don't harass someone's pregnant wife if you don't want to get beat down (same logic as don't push someone if you don't want to get shot which is absurd escalation).

One person initiated violence, and he died.

Did you watch the video? Dude (sucker punched) leveled the shooter like a blindside NHL check. Of course a deranged jerkoff lie yourself makes this racial while wholly ignoring the fact that only one person decided that violence is the first response to the situation.

Not, "whoah whoah woah hey man what's going on?" Nope, he decided to attack someone from behind to start things off.

Then again, he's black so you expect less from him. All hail white savior!

It’s a good things courts consider context and not just a single action inside a vacuum you dumb ****. There is absolutely no way you’re a lawyer.

Let's take a poll, who thinks AoG would have a very different opinion of this situation had the shooter been black???

you've devolved into a total npc tool, it's like you can't even have a conversation anymore.

My opinion is based 100% on the video. The pregnant chick was reportedly illegally parked (her fault), the shooter was a dick about it, he didn't touch her, advance on her or visibly threaten her. Her boyfriend (dead) blindsided the dude and then stood over him.

If you're hit from behind you're going to be disoriented. If any of you have played football or any contact sport you know how it feels when you get hit and you didn't see it coming. The dude pulled his gun and shot within seconds of being assaulted. You can't break down a video frame by frame and decide what was reasonable and what was not reasonable when the shooter was reacting within a second or two.

Additionally, the races of the people shouldn't even be part of the story considering 90% of these incidents are black on white...and that's never the story. This is truly man bites dog.

At the end of the day, as I already said, one person in that altercation initiated violence and unnecessarily escalated the situation. Not statistically surprisingly it was a black-on-white assault.

That being said a jury found him guilty and that's how the system works. Perhaps his appeal will be successful, perhaps it will not. Either way, the lesson here is do not initiate violence. I'd rather be in jail than dead.

(and no mistrzmiasta, I wouldn't go punching people that insulted my wife. I'm an adult and have nothing to prove)

I think the discrepancy is that the video shows something that could be argued as a "self defense" stance. But what we don't know is how the guy presented himself during trial and the quality of his defense.

Ahhhhhh AoG is implementing the often used "Last Boy Scout" football defense.

And once again we learn what an absolute badass mistrzmiasta is, he's so cool.
