Ironic? It's exactly what I'd expect.

I've been trying to get the state to give Charlotte back to South Carolina for some time now. Hopefully this will add to my case.

This right here. I have zero clue as to who these people are, but they're already on my nerves.

A vigil for the people shot during the vigil will be held this Friday at 8.

Plans for the following Friday are pending...

As you noted, the individual was only alleged to have been a robber. By shooting and killing him, the store clerk denied the man due process of law. He had not yet been convicted of the crime, and thus he was legally innocent. Thus the vigil was entirely justified.

Vigils will be held for the protesters. People will be shot there. Then vigils will be held for those people. Then people will be shot there. And so on and so forth until there's no one left in North Carolina. Thanks Obama!

Ok so make sure the perp has cash in hand before blowing him away. Got it

The fact that people will hold a vigil for someone who died while committing a robbery is a good sign of how truly farked up our society has become.

If he was "legally innocent" then why hasn't the clerk been charged with anything?

When the perp dies, they usually just go by the video:

One of the store's owners Lamia Hanna described what she saw on the surveillance camera. "It showed the guy jumped [over the counter]. He had a gun. He was all covered up. We didn't see his face and he hit the clerk twice. The clerk had to defend himself," Hanna said.

Is this best described by attractiveness or success?

The fact that they couldn't get through said vigil without a gunfight breaking out says a lot more.

Look, this story is tailor made for racism.  You couldn't make this shiat up.  And it's certainly an indictment of the toxic culture of the inner city.

However, that robber did have a family and friends.  They were likely sad to see him go, so they held a little vigil for him.  The bad apples there ruined it.

95% of America is not directly affected by inner city violence.  Most victims are other poor black people.  We caught a little glimpse of the disease in gangsta rap and then an odd coalition of pc liberals and purse-clutching conservatives rose up to demonize gangsta rap.   The Wire was another little peek, but nobody wanted to watch that shiat when it was on.

Now we sit around and watch crime dramas on tv where 100% of the murderers, and 95% of the victims, are moderately attractive white people.  Thanks Law & Order, for helping us ignore the inner-city.  It's really messy there and way too much trouble to fix.  Let's just keep that mess concentrated there so I can get to my Starbucks safely.

"Stand your ground" laws require prosecutors to drop all charges when a killer claims to have felt threatened.

When you decide to rob someone, you've voluntarily waved your due process rights. People aren't require to stand by and be victimized.

No doubt these fine upstanding citizens would have been holding a vigil for the dead clerk also.  Vigils are silly.

Without legally appropriate arrest, trial and conviction, the assertion of robbery remains a legally unproved allegation.

"He was a good, boy, who just made a mistake, he got caught up with the wrong crowd, I didn't raise no robber, he was turning his life around, was working on becoming a rapper so he could pay child support to his baby mammas, he didn't deserve to be shot down like a dog by this horrible racist shop owner who only shot him because he was black and should have just stayed behind the counter!"


Did you make that quote up or was it real?
//have heard shiat like that come out of the mouths of moms in Philly after events like this but this one seems to be embellished.

Unless they watch the surveillance tape. Which shows the guy Pistol whipping the clerk.

A surveillance tape cannot be put on trial.

Then there is the guy in Philly who shot his son, wife and self last night. The stats say gun owners are significantly more likely to be the victim or the perp as opposed to the hero but that is just math and I know that does not count for much in this debate.

Not in states that don't have "Stand Your Ground" laws. In hellholes like NJ, you are legally obligated to run away and hide should someone decide to rob, rape, or assault you, and you just have to hope they don't come looking for you.

Couple that with the SCOTUS saying that police have no constitutional duty to protect you. Yah I think  I'll keep my gun.

Mom DID raise a robber by having this outlook on life.  Good kids don't do things like this.  Normal parents don't stand up for their kids when the kid dies robbing a store.  Normal parents feel shame for having a dickhead kid and remorse for messing up somewhere along the way.  This mom is trying to justify her shiatty parenting.
