A few weeks ago, both Miguel and I covered the story of Tanner Cook.
Cook is a YouTuber who pulls pranks on people.
He harassed the wrong guy in a threatening way and was rewarded with a bullet to the chest.
His shooter was found not guilty. As he should have been.
One would think that would signal to other social media pranksters that doing shit like that might be a bad idea.

This punk got drawn on.
It gets worse that he decided to mouth off to the old man who, very kindly, gave him a verbal warning instead of just shooting his punk ass.
Dumping what appears to be gasoline on someone is absolutely a lethal threat.
It should (I would say “would,” but IANAL) be grounds for a justified shoot almost anywhere.
Chasing someone with a gas can threatening to douse them is definitely a lethal threat.
It doesn’t matter that it’s water.
If you try to rob someone with a rubber knife or Airsoft gun, the victim doesn’t have to determine that your threat is real before acting on the threat.
If this little shit gets ventilated, it’s his own fault.
I’m just glad these guys record it, it makes it easier to exonerate the shooters.
