He was quite aggravated by the old honkbag.

He won't even have to seek out the biggest, baddest inmate on his first day in the joint.  His rep is made.

30 years!? Damn. I mean 16 months for manslaughter with mitigating circumstances, reduced to time served sure. But no bail and 30 years?
 
2021-05-11 10:11:12 PM  
So the word of someone with troubles controlling his emotions and prone to violent outbursts, vs dead guy.

You're all as bad as cop apologists - for the same reasons.

This is Florida (Tampa Bay Times). In some states, there is a legal doctrine about "fighting words" which pertains to offensive speech that is likely to incite retaliation in the form of violence. I'm not sure if Florida recognizes this, but the Supreme Court has. If I were on a jury, I'd give this guy a pass.

That's what I was thinking.  He should have been white and stole millions and/or made a sock profit on something that killed lots of people instead.

UndeadPoetsSociety: Good riddance, shame they're gonna destroy the dude's life over it.


Yeah, that guy destroyed his own life. You don't get to assault people because they called you a mean name. He did the actual crime, now it's on him to do the actual crime. Do you regularly blame other people when you make your own bad decisions?

Subby at least has the right reaction to something like this.

So in this thread I see people think it's okay to kill someone over name calling as long as the person doing the killing is black and the victim is white?

Unless you are willing to accept overreaction and escalation is permitted for anyone and any situation (cops for example).

I reread the article, and I'm suspicious.

They didn't name the victim, cops aren't releasing the name, and they didn't say he was a white guy.

I'm wondering if this was an old Chinese guy and "neega" was the trigger for the outburst.

Wouldn't be the first time.

Why? Because he can't act like a farking adult? Jesus, I learned in like 5th grade that words aren't justification for assault, let alone murder. Of course, it wasn't coached in those terms, but it was the same lesson.

Hey, you're right.  Not 30 to life, but sitting home while paid instead.

If I was his defense lawyer, I'd argue it was self-defense. If he was being called the n-word to his face, who's to say the racist didn't have a weapon on him.
 
2021-05-11 10:17:01 PM  
Just wondering if that cop in Buffalo is facing 30 with no bail for pushing over the old guy?

I'm guessing no. So if you want to talk about doing time this guy should get no more than that cop.

You do know what Involuntary Manslaughter is right? They're treating the arrested as if pulled out a pistol and shot the old man in the back of the head if they're seeking 30 years.

Well, hell, using your logic, I can run over people with my car in states that allow concealed carry because you never know who might be carrying.

well technically he isnt justifying murder. he's justifying manslaughter.

Are you talking about the guy who punched the guy using a racial slur or the guy who decided to use a racial slur here?

Well, it isn't ideal for a private citizen to kill racists.  We should have government approved shock troops to comb out cities and do the killing of racists.  So that private citizens don't have to.

For the rural areas, have the government issue letters of mark and have privateers do the the Nazi hunting.  Paid on a per Nazi captured or executed basis.

Problem solved.

Jury nullification doesn't exist so people who beat up on the elderly over being called a bad word can get away with being a@@holes. (The fact that the old man was an even bigger a@@ is irrelevant.) This guy deserves prison time. Maybe it will teach him some self-control.

Yeah. For Involuntary Manslaughter. 30 years is first degree murder.

you might want to read up on some of the laws that have recently passed with regards to hitting protestors with a vehicle. they're not far off from what you're describing.

Ironically passed by the same type of people who would randomly call retail workers racial slurs.

The old man probably had a few pops to the face coming for years. Finally got one.

This is the classic eggshell skull.

Sucks to be the puncher in this case.

The Dunkin Donuts guy should have thrown the coffee at the racist instead.
