RandomRandom: evil saltine: No, he wasn't trying to kill them, just scare them.Not if I'm on the jury. He didn't just brandish, he shot, he could easily have killed. If I'm on the jury, he gets the full attempted homicide.Cowards like that don't usually have the balls to gamble with a jury.So he'll plead out, do 5, maybe 7 years with good behavior. Then again, he does have low impulse control and an murderous angry streak, so the good behavior part might not be in his future. He could be looking at 10 to 15 inside.
That Guy Jeff: I've been walking down the road and had people throw beer bottles at me. People who pull this shiat, farking with pedestrians from a moving vehicle, deserve to get shot at. fark those people, I'm disappointed the guy missed.
Babwa Wawa: There are lot of folks in this thread with interesting ideas about when and where lethal force is justified.Many of you are farking nuts.
Nothing To See Here: Is Bud wizer?
Slaxl: ArcadianRefugee: You guys do know "missile" has multiple meanings, right?Isn't a bullet more of a projectile than a missile?
Oliver Twisted: And if you are on the jury, what do you give the two who "spilled" a beer on the man?
Marmilman: You don't need to intentionally mischaracterize what happened to validate your point. The two clowns didn't "spill" anything. They purposely slowed down their vehicle when they saw him doing yard work, and proceeded to intentionally pour beer on him. There was nothing accidental about it (as the word 'spill' implies).
PunGent: For me, it's the old "I don't condone it, but it I understand it" line. Don't want to get shot at?
Babwa Wawa: PunGent: For me, it's the old "I don't condone it, but it I understand it" line. Don't want to get shot at?This is exactly what I find to be horrific. The response was entirely out of proportion. Shooting at someone because you got beer poured on you is not "understandable".
Slaxl: There's a difference between understanding why someone does something, and condoning it. That's why he said "I don't condone it". Adding on, "but I understand it", doesn't mean, "but I do condone it really". It means he understands that someone was extremely pissed off and in a moment of blind rage reached for his gun. It's not nice, and no one likes it, but how can you say you don't understand why that happens? Blind rage makes people act stupid and violent. Nothing I said is mitigating or condoning shooting people because you're angry, in any way.
