That sums it up pretty well. White Guy looked to the left to read the menuu, then got sucker punched.gunsmoker said:So can someone tell me what the video shows? All I saw was a freeze-frame still photo (very blurry) and the photo caption. It appears that a young black male sucker-punched an elderly white male who was waiting in line at McDonald's. Then the offender robbed the victim of his wallet and car keys after he was down.
Exactly.gunsmoker said:A gun would not have done the old guy any good. In fact, it is likely that had the old guy been packing, the thief would have found his gun while stealing his other valuables, and then the violent punk would be armed.
Seems to me that buy the time the white guy hits the floor, a packing witness could have drawn on the guy. How do you know that no more phsicaly harm is imminent. It's in progress!gunsmoker said:You can't shoot to stop a crime when the injury to the victim has already taken place and no more physical harm is imminent. Can you?
Wait, I thought that's what the "Shoot First, Ask Questions Later" Bill allowed. :shoot: :twisted: kiddin.... really...gunsmoker said:It is not "open season" on bad guys.
I'm not a cop. This is a tough one though. I don't plan to draw unless I'm planning to shoot. Fear of Immediate Death or Serious bodily Injury.gunsmoker said:Citizen's arrest at gunpoint?
I don't think anybody would have seen that coming. He knew he was there. They spoke to each other. The robber gave no signal he was about to attack.iwb32 said:This guy never saw it coming. Should be a reminder to always be alert wherever you are.
Right. I wasn't trying to say they white guy should have done something different. Like you said, they said hello to each other. that's more than lots of people do. It just makes me want to be on the lookout even more.Malum Prohibitum said:
