I just cant get past the first name
Sounds like the black guy had every right and the sheriff did the right thing too.
“The black man shoots one of the white men. A sheriff on the scene protects the black shooter.”.....
Why did you leave out the fact that the sheriff was also black?
The number of black gun defensive uses, against any race, as well as specifically against white attackers, is woefully under-reported.
“A study of Florida’s “stand your ground” law, found that black people are more likely to successfully use the defense than are white people.”
I suspect this is the case because black people are often more familiar with detecting dangerous aggression, as well as knowing the threshold of justifiable force. (The same might be said of many combat veterans.)
Whereas people *not* familiar with dangerous aggression are far less likely to detect the threat, and react at the wrong time; as well as to not know when to act and when not to act.
For example, burglar in home versus burglar having left property and running away.
“One of the men ‘swang’ at the driver multiple times through the cars window.”
It was cases just like this that prompted the Democrats to institute Gun Laws in the first place.
If you leave out all the “black” and “white” in this story, it almost makes sense... Except for the swang
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 keep up with the news here and dont recall hearing about this incident at all after that game. Did the shot guy survive?
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.
