For over a year, we have been subjected to the “If George Zimmerman had stayed in the truck, nothing would have happened so he is guilty.” But now we are being treated to this:
“Tyrone Pierson told police he was walking down South West 3rd Street with two friends when Jacobs drove by in his SUV. Pierson yelled at Jacobs to slow down and an argument followed. Pierson claims Jacobs got out of the SUV and chased him with a stick.
Police tell us that Jacobs was shot once in the face in a drive way. Pierson told investigators he was actually running away when he fired that shot and he had no idea where he shot Jacobs.
So the victim did get out of the truck with a possible weapon….but somebody says the magical words Stand Your Ground and poof, he did not do anything wrong. Can the Antis please pick ONE version and stick with it? It is starting to look like they are lying or something! [snicker]
There is probably more to this than the initial reports. I noticed the picture that appeared in the CSGV link and it looked like the standard prison mugshot. And it appears that Julius Jerome Jacobs is not just a “40-year-old community choir director, came after Pierson and two other teens with a large stick following an argument” like the Huffington post made him out to be but somebody who served prison sentences twice for several felonies. This might end up just being a tiff among dopers or dealers but it makes for a good public relations item for some folks.
