I keep reading some comments about the double murder I posted about yesterday concerning the first killing might be a grey area. IANAL Warning: To me it is not grey at all but deep black legally and it is murder/manslaughter.
Here is the video again.
And now three frames that I deem important.
On frame one, the scissors are present, but shooter is not backing down out of not being afraid or because he is stupid, take you pick.
Frame two shows the victim one, who was initially pulled away by the female, beginning to turn away after the shooter presented the gun.
Frame three shows the first shot after the victim had moved farther away (3 steps) and was not presenting an immediate danger of death or grave bodily harm.
And that is a murder.
The rest of the shooter’s actions are just aggravating factors that will only help to add decades to his sentence.
And if you are saying “Shit! That is a small window to make a decision!” and you are right, and you better take that in consideration before you allow yourself into any foolish legal fantasy about self-defense. And that is also why we have keep beating in this blog about Avoidance, Deterrence and De-escalation.
