    Re: Another Unarmed Black Man Killed

    Not to derail, but where is the outrage

    About 7:30 p.m., a 22-year-old man and his girlfriend ordered food at the Taco Bell drive-thru and were told to pull up while their order was prepared.
    At the same time, Adkins stepped around a corner into the path of the vehicle and angry words were exchanged between he and the driver.
    They got into an altercation and Adkins was shot once by the driver. He died at the scene.
    The driver, a 22-year-old black male, called police but has not been arrested.


    Taco Bell Shooting Victim was Holding Leash, Not Weapon

    Quit playing the race factor when it is not an issue in the event. Someone is killed every day in the US. People sometimes do what they think they have to do to defend themselves.
    As we all know, the news gives us both sides of the issue.

    And there lies the difference between you and me. I would consider "relying on yourself" irresponsible. Shooting is a last resort to me.

    Re: Another Unarmed Black Man Killed

    Has nothing to do with race.

    We have a culture of killers in our society, who think it's cool and manly to shoot people they are legally able to. We've had other threads where pompous assholes have claimed they would do the same (kill someone on their property, for being on their property). There should be plenty of people agreeing that the guy should have shot the kid, even though we all know he used deadly force inappropriately, snuffing out a kids life.

    I really think we should identify those types, buy up land in an area they think is public, then have snipers drop them as they put both feet over the property line. Castle doctorine, har har. ****ers.

    Arrest that man and have him stand trial. Let the Jury decide if it is a legitimate use of self-defense.

    This is what will happen in this case, so long as Arizona is not a SYG state. If it is an SYG state, then we can just let this guy decide for himself what counts as legitimate self-defense....unless he's in Georgia, where SYG apparently only applies to certain people.

    It's not a matter of being "cool" or "manly". It' a matter of being willing and able to defend ourselves and our property rather than hiding under the bed and frantically calling an understaffed, overworked, and wholely unhelpful local police department whenever something bad happens. I don't know anyone (including myself) who WANTS to have to shoot someone. However, there are many of us who will NOT be Prey for these Predators that the system seems to be completely incapable of dealing with in any meaningful way.
