Sigh. Pffft. Seems like a lot to ask of my first day on the job.

How did he make it through a job interview without setting off every natural Stranger Danger instinct in existence?  That's a cold stare in his mugshot.

maybe he specializes in 2nd amendment stuff?

Not wanting to do it, or just not actually pulling the trigger?

Should make the custody situation a lot simpler going forward.

Still, though, as a father I'll never understand the mentality of "ill kill them before I let you take them, " but it happens far too often.

He may want to start working  on the ACLU's push to "Ban the Box".

Maybe it was filled with wives..?
One marriage would be worthy of this behavior, 4-5 would be worthy of semi automatic shoulder fired weapons.

He looks about as expected.

Just one day after the American Civil Liberties Union of Utah announced it had hired Aaron Kinikini as its new staff attorney, Salt Lake police arrested him after they say he fired a gun at a car in which his children were riding.

Shoot, we all want them to have a real 'murican school year experience in this lock down. He was just doing his part.

Assuming that was what he was aiming at, I'm impressed he took out both front tires.

Both driver side tires, not both front tires.

Ah, I see how he was confused. He thought he was working for the NRA.

You sound like a member in good standing. Not.

Yeah, come on dude. Much like stealing office supplies, xeroxing your dick and posting it next to the conference room sign up sheet, or banging the boss's daughter on his desk, you gotta wait a couple of weeks to settle in. Everyone knows this.

The woman and three children were inside the vehicle when Kinikini "stood behind the vehicle, preventing the victim from leaving," according to a police booking affidavit.
Kinikini told police that the woman "drove at him at a high rate of speed," the affidavit states. Police say he then produced a handgun and fired at the vehicle, hitting the "driver side front and rear tires."

Then how the f*ck else is one supposed to stop her from leaving?

THIS IS AMERICA, MAN!

Consider that the ACLU has recently endorsed rolling back due process protections for campus tribunals and has also adopted a rather more restrictive approach to free speech protections, that comment is entirely accurate.

If she was driving at him, wouldn't he have a self defense claim?  Sounds pretty cut and dry, frankly.

Jeremy Renner has really let himself go during the pandemic.

In the ACLU's defense, that's about as liberal a guy as you can find in Utah.

I'm going to go waaaaay out on a limb here and guess that he was the aggressor in this fight, what with blocking her car, having a gun, shooting the gun, etc.

Because he's an asshole.

Legally, none of that would matter if she was driving at him, unless he did something like pull out the gun first and threaten her with it (but the article doesn't say that, just that he stood in her path).

If you aim your car at a person on foot, that's assault with a deadly weapon or attempted murder.

I always thought the ACLU types didn't like guns.

It is entirely possible that one or both of them were completely justified in what they did. These news stories are always completely lacking in details. Especially key details like "he dove in front of a moving car" or "she said she was going to drive the car into a lake".

Possibly.  He is also charged with unlawful detention which could be due to his standing behind the car not allowing them to leave.
But not enough details to do more than conjecture
