I don't even know how to react to this. Sure there are discrepancies, like who started the fight, but I'm betting it wasn't the kid.

What are your thoughts, Pit?

"The family of a 17-year-old African-American boy shot to death last month in his gated Florida community by a white Neighborhood Watch captain"

I hate the racist black people who try to make everything about colour,

does it matter if the boy was black and the gunman was white? Nice racist writer right there trying to cause a divide.


neighbourhood watch are allowed to shoot people in the US?

He shot and killed someone , he should go to jail.

In this part of the world, racism is a fact of life.

As far as neighborhood watch being armed goes, I believe it was his own personal weapon he was carrying, but he was still far out of his bounds as a neighborhood watchman.

Edit: It makes me want to drive down there, hunt him down and beat him to hell and back again. But that's just me.

Yah the police haven't taken any action yet because he claims it was in self defense.

aren't neighborhood watches not supposed to have guns?

also, i'm not too surprised this happened in florida, crazy shootings always seem to happen anywhere from orlando to miami dade (with lots in broward).

I don't completely understand the story, if I'm honest. Why did he confront the kid, there doesn't seem to be anything in the article about a fight? Either way, this is a tragic story. Mr trigger happy definitely needs to be taken down.

why are you guys complaining about people "making this about race?" This is clearly about race. He was walking to the store and someone called 911 because he was black.

I read this story too and got pretty upset. The reason why race is mentioned in the article is because the gunman most likely shot the kid based on stereotypes. Do you think the same woulda happened if the kid was white? The gunman probably wouldn't have seen anything suspicious in the first place.

It mentions it in the video, mon. 911 calls reported a fight then other 911 calls reported a gunshot. They were all pretty close together I believe.

I'm surprised school shooters here in the states don't just scream self defense when the cops come. seems like they'd get off.

I really just want to go down there, shoot him, and say it was self-defense.

This is horrible, and should never had happened.

But seriously though, who wrote that article? They should really work on their writing. Some of the sentences are just confusing as hell.

It's illegal for students to carry firearms on school property in the states.

I can't see how its self defense. Unless the kid just decided to try and attack him when he got out of his car and approached him

Yeah yahoo is letting a lot of crap like that get through nowadays.

Nick slayer, even if the kid did attack him, that hardly warrants shooting and killing him, amirite?

Yes I know, I worded it a bit wrong. The point I was trying to make is that "self defense" isn't a justifiable excuse

There's no way it could have been self defence. Since he was unarmed, even if he had been aggressive as fuck toward the guy with the gun, all he would have had to do is take out his gun and the victim would have stopped. You don't attack people if they have a gun. So I can't see his self defence story standing up in court.
#30
Dude will probably get off. If he hasnt already been arrested then i think we know how this goes.

As far as race maybe if he saw a white guy walking around late he doesnt even make a 911 call and maybe he still does but the fact that its a young african american and sounds to be an older white man on a neighborhood watch and the whole thing stinks of racial tensions.

If dude gets off the family of the deceased will not be happy by any means.He needs to watch himself.

^ Me? Meh just a little annoyed that someone could blatantly commit murder and claim selfdefense without an arrest even being made.

Im 23 and black. If i shot someone on the street even with a registered gun and they were attacking me id still get arrested and questioned and would have the cops crawling down my back trying to get some type of conviction.

The way this sounds is that he shouldnt even have a gun on him,contacted police who im sure told him to not get involved,and apparently had to defend himself from someone with skittles and a iced tea on them. This kinda goes beyond black and white though and put any race on either side (dead or shooter) and this is still unacceptable.

Skittles eh? The only way that asshole would have even a microscopic shred of legitimacy is if said victim was Jackie Chan.

****ing disgusting. There's quite obviously foul play going on. The police should automatically detain the person they knew carried out the shooting until they can prove what happened one way or the other, just taking his word that it was self-defense is just ridiculous.
