Anyone following this?

I've been following it for a bit now. The whole situation is sad, and I'm shocked that the man is still out, charged with nothing.

Would be nice to actually know the facts of what happened leading up to the shooting before people made judgements.

Everyone is assuming that the guy just shot the kid for no reason. May very well have been the case....but just as easily could have been a very different set of facts.

He shot and killed an unarmed kid. He accosted the kid and they got in a fight so he shot him. He shouldn't own a firearm and he should be put in jail. 26 year old idiot he should never be a policeman.

doubtful this would have happened if this kid was white, I guess a black kid in a gated community was too suspicious.

According to the article they have the whole thing on the 911 tape. I wouldn't assume racial bias or coverup just yet.

The only fact that you stated above was that the kid was unarmed. Everything else that you stated is complete conjecture and your opinion of what you THINK happened.

Like the other poster said, they have much of this on tape.....which, none of us (including you) have heard.

Again, you HAVE NO fuging CLUE WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED other than a kid being shot.

Something's definitely fishy here... on the surface it looks like a trigger happy guy that saw a black kid and took the law into his own hands and it went too far. I can't imagine why a grown man would need to shoot an unarmed 17 year old... so there's that... but they have not released all of the facts yet so...

Certainly if he shot the kid just because he thought he was doing something wrong, the guy should go to jail... even if the kid attacked him, still can't see shooting him... idk. The whole thing stinks to me...

I don't know the details...but everyone understands that just because someone is actually found to be unarmed when the body's looked over doesn't mean the threat insinuating a firearm is present wasn't made....or some other sort of weapon.

Yes he could have buried his gun before he died in order to make the shooter look better, or maybe the Black Panthers came in and started a giant undercover operation.

I love seeing the gears turning in the heads around here when things don't quite go right

Don't get me wrong I don't know anything about this at all, but to read the defense mechanisms being put up here is pretty cool

Send that mofo to prison. There is nothing that could of happened where he needed to shoot that kid.
