The article is the usual Yahoo garbage.

The comments tell a more complete story.

Doesn’t matter what he is.

Traveling a public way, blocked by a howling mob, guy was reaching through his window and made contact.

They guy who got shot is lucky to be alive. Totally good shoot.

His latin privilege is why the crowd didn’t beat him to death or burn his car - they gently pushed it to a side street

I watched this on a live stream - black dude jumped to the drivers door and started beating on him. He shot black dude in the upper shoulder. After a few sec, exited car, walked thru the crowd to police line.

Can’t find it right now, but a pix was put up on twitter of him having an extended clip blue-taped to his arm, but I didn’t notice it but didn’t look either

he had an ironworker windbreaker on. On twitter they allegedly id’d him - allegedly a 27yo local

What exactly did he expect trying to reach into someones car? “Peaceful protests” don’t involve blocking traffic and trying to reach into peoples cars to do God knows what.

Does it ever occur to these morons and their minions in the media that the driver may have some sort of emergency, perhaps medical?

I guaran-dam-tee you if my child’s life were on the line it would be pedal to the metal!

Well, perhaps justified, but not a good enough shot.

Still, he’ll face a lesser charge.

I don’t know the total facts, so I may or may not support
this guy in the long run.

if the shootee hadn’t been halfway through the driver side window pounding the Hell out of the shooter he wouldn’t be a shootee.

“Somehow” an antifa guy comes up with a huge metal object to block the guy’s car.

Yep. Because when you put your head into a strangers car window you most likely have only good intentions :)
