Problem is, this isn't the entire story. Definitely was madness to fire again at the car, and killing the kid. But, when you see someone run back into their vehicle and then roll down their window right at you, you have no idea if this person was caught in the act and is about to shoot you either. He could, and should have gone back inside and locked his doors if anything. But the morons here raging about how some crazy southerner went out blazing his gun at some innocent kid need to take off the blinders. I suppose most of the people thinking like that, really have no idea what it's like living where people do stupid crazy things like that, and it could have easily been the old "crazy murdering gun toting bastard" who was shot. In which case it would be a thread about how crazy gun owners are and how kids are insane, and have no respect and yadda yadda yadda. If somebody shoots a gun at or near you, don't attempt to talk to them as you are leaving. I suppose they should sue the GPS system for sending them to the wrong house when looking for their girlfriends sisters friend as well... since if it weren't for those incorrect directions none of this would have happened! DAMN YOU GARMIN!
I don't support what happened, and I can't see him having a case. But stop looking at situations from purely one side because of how a story makes it sound, and get the actual information.
How many different stories developed from the recent shooting in Connecticut before the "true story" came out? First the roommate was killed, as well as the kids and his mother was a teacher in the school, and he'd bought the guns under his brothers identity earlier that week, then little by little different details emerged until more of the truth came out. People are painted a picture of some deranged old man shooting anybody who's on "his poperty." when he had his reasons to be on "high alert."
It is horrible that this all had to happen, and I truly feel sorry for the victims family and friends. Sailor was wrong to react in the manner he did, but don't think for a second that this article has the entire story.
