WEll i don't know exactly if race was involved but that guyseems like a hero to me
Well, if he's trained anything like the police he is taught 'shoot at the torso' and 'till they drop' (but not continuous) as in keep shooting until they hit the ground.Cheveyo said:Well, if you're not trained for it chances are you WILL unload the entire clip. That's just what people tend to do in stressful situations.Sonicron said:I don't know how many rounds I would unload, I've never been in a scenario like this and as such have difficulty predicting how I would act.Eukaryote said:In fact, I would have loaded the entire clip in to the thief, just to make sure he ain't going anywhere.Sonicron said:What he said.Eukaryote said:He was wearing a ski mask and had a shotgun, which was justification enough for preventative actions in my books.
Oh, and anyone who'd try making a racial issue out of this needs to get their head on straight. It was an armed robbery, for crying out loud! These folks were being threatened by perps with shotguns! If I'd been able to defend myself in this way it's not unlikely I would have done the same, with not even a single thought as to the skin color of the robber or anyone else around me.
The people upset about it are a much MUCH smaller group than those who praise his actions or are indifferent.Mechsoap said:wtf.....the guy shoot a armed robber and saved properly others, why does he have to be charged and why does the community be so stupid?!

What I have noticed is the race card is played almost any time a white does something a minority doesn't like and it's been used enough that most people don't even pay attention anymore.Altorin said:as for race.. come on.. seriously? Just because a white (ex) Guard kills a black criminal doesn't make it a racially motivated crime.. That's just retarded, and playing the race card here invalidates other more appropriate racial issues... Sort of like the boy who cried Racist.. Eventually, we get jaded and stop listening, and real racists get away with it.
