For those of you who say "I'm sure he reacted calmly"... You're a ****ing retard. Citizens cannot simply go around pointing guns at other people they're suspicious of. We have laws. If this shit was kosher I'd have already killed a few hundred people. This guy is a murderer.
Apparently when gunning down a black kid in a white neighborhood "He came at me with a bag of skittles" is a legit defense.
This is exactly what I'm talking about. WhiteWhale has already decided that the guy was "going around pointing guns at other people they're suspicious of." The quoted article doesn't actually say what happened, and yet WhiteWhale is assuming the guy just pulled his gun, ran up and shot the kid. Now if the guy goes to court, he not only has to prove that didn't happen, but also that the kid posed an imminent threat to him.
More people think like this and Wickedson, that all guns are bad and should all be outlawed and are not very forgiving to people who choose to lawfully carry weapons.
I'm not defending him at all, from what I gather, he was the one who initiated the confrontation, which you never ever ever do. That is where he went wrong.
