I swear people seem to only be able to view things as if "they're good guys, why would you run or fight back?". Everyone has been making excuses for the McMichaels and why the killing was justifiable. Obviously this lawyer friend only saw it that way. Why aren't these same people looking at how it is NOT justifiable? And now many of those looking for this to be justifiable are complaining about those that are seeing the "not side" are speaking up. What the "not" people are saying us not the problem.... I will repeat what I have said up thread: The problem.. the only problem is that someone was killed and no action was taken. That is where everything starts and must end. You address that and you address the follow on problems and resond to people fairly.Kiwirob wrote:
They chased him down in a truck, how could he flee from a vehicle? He probably shouldn’t have had a tousle with the gun owning rednecks, that’s what sealed his fate. If I was him I would have stopped and let them call the cops and wait for the police to sort it out.
They are going to KILL you! That is why they are coming after you. And you would stand their and wait for that? OK...
Now many defenders here will complain loudly at that, "They weren't going to kill him, they were just going to detain him. Why do you inflame things like that?! YOU are the problem!" Except... none of us were inside Ahmaud's head, and I can only go with what I think, and I think that if I have two armed black people chasing after me in a truck, yelling, I am going to probably die, and I don't want to do ANYTHING they say, I want to get the hell away.
And you would think differently? You would stand and wait for two (three?) armed people driving crazy in a truck to come up to you? To kill you? (Or what do you think they want to do?)
You don’t know what they were going to do! Maybe they would have killed him maybe they wouldn’t, but IMO he sealed his fate by fighting back.
Are people not allowed to fight back attackers now?
