This was posted in a gun group that I belong to on Facebook.
What’s interesting is that when people commented about him escalating the situation by “yelling out the car window” his response was “I normally do that, but this time, it happened in a school zone.”
Think about that for a second. You can follow the rules 99% of the time, but that one time you don’t, you almost have to shoot someone.
“I do it all the time, but this time, I didn’t” means, well, you DON’T do it ALL the time, you make exceptions.
Was there any reason not to de-escalate here? Was he in fear for his life?
The prosecution doesn’t care about the 99 times you did it right. They will convict you on the one time you did it wrong.
