Did you watch the video? When did he brandish a firearm? The guy even asked where his firearm was. Something like, do you have a pistol in your pocket. He had called 911 multiple times.Polygon said:I see a lot of stupidity here and from what I saw in the video, I can't say he not guilty.
1. He should have called the police rather than confronting them. It made him the instigator of the confrontation.
2. He should not have showed his gun. You only let them see the gun when you feel you're out of options and you're ready to shoot. I certainly don't get that impressions from watching the video. Also, having showed them the gun make you the instigator once again. The other people see it as you making a deadly threat to them. Once could argue they get a gun and shoot you in self defense.
3. Since he ignored the first two, he should have left and called police when he became concerned rather than continuing to film. I get the impression he wasn't in danger up until the very end.
4. Carrying a camera and a gun at the same time is just careless.
i agree with this. in the end, it doesn't look like anyone's actions were smart though.He made some mistakes, but it looked like they attacked him first. If he was one HIS property, that would give him the right to shoot. If he was on THEIR property, then they had the right to attack him (though, not very smart).
That's 100% correct. Had he gone back into his house and called the police, he wouldn't be serving 40 years for murder, and his neighbor would not be dead.filming yourself provoking a drunk so you can try and kill them priceless.
guilty as charged.
all he ghad to do was leave and cal the police he put himself into a situation and provoked the attack in a belligerent manner.
true i heard the same thing i did not see him pull his firearm however the guy also kept moving closer to him and the man told him to stop multiple times and the man kept instigating himDid you watch the video? When did he brandish a firearm? The guy even asked where his firearm was. Something like, do you have a pistol in your pocket. He had called 911 multiple times.
Watch the video bud.
There's another I'll post later when I get home.
