I would have also. I would not sit and let some hoodlum[s] beat the hell out of me either.
Sounds like a righteous shoot to me. His black life mattered and he took appropriate action during and after.

I agree 100 percent. It is only because of the horrible BLM movement that people even care about the race of the participants. If you get out of your car....walk up to another car and try to hit the driver...you deserve, no, you NEED to be shot. And shot many times. What a bunch of idiots.
Race does not matter here.
Past tense of “swing”.
It has fallen out of usage in most places these days in the US.
I keep up with the news here and dont recall hearing about this incident at all after that game. Did the shot guy survive?
My only co-worker that summer was a black fellow named Theodis T. Odie. I have never forgotten it because it rolled off your tongue like a melody.
“He was justa’ swangin”
Old 80’s country music song, I forget the singer
A Dontavious was in the right, for once. Justified, he was in fear for his life.
But then, there’s the little matter of the “pulling in front” thing that occurred prior to the confrontation.
Dontavious isn’t exactly innocent. He provoked those guys.
If Georgia has a road rage statute, charge and convict them all, Dontavious included, and let that be the pitiful end of it.
Becoming archaic but still used in the south, often incorrectly.
“Becoming archaic but still used in the south, often incorrectly. “
I’m from the South and I never heard it used like that. Now, ‘go sit in the swang’, sure.
“I swinged it real hard. Or “I swung it real hard” ???? Spellcheck says that swinged is not a correct word and swung is correct.
“Swang” is used in the American south, particularly the Scotch-Irish areas of the Appalachian upper south. It’s not incorrect but is slipping into archaic status. It’s the simple past form rather than the past participle. It’s also commonly used in the north of England and in Scotland, unsurprisingly as that’s where it arose.
Oh, and “Scotch” is correct, too, by the way.
I do not know. His name was not mentioned in the articles that I read about it.
Swing, swang, had swung :^)
sing, sang, sung
The borderlands of England and Scotland is certainly where my ancestors came from back around 1650. swung is not a word I use, at least not very often. But my question .........what is the passed tense of swing?
As I've been telling you, it's typically "swung," however there is regional variance with alternate correct usage, albeit verging upon archaic: "swang."
People laugh about the past participle of swim, too. Try using “swum” and see how many misinformed Mr. or Ms. English Persons try to correct you.
I heard you say that, I was just wondering what some of the alternate words were.
