Some racist picked the wrong guy

An investigation showed the shooter, 28-year-old Jehrardd Williams, shot and killed in self-defense as he was being charged by a shirtless man who had been yelling racial slurs at him minutes earlier, according to a Lee County Sheriff's Office report.

Williams shot Dakota Fields, of Fort Myers, three times as the 24-year-old rushed toward him, the report said. Fields died six miles down the road from the restaurant after the SUV he and friends left in struck a car at the foot of the Edison Bridge.

The rate of concealed-carry there makes #2 look like Slippery Rock U. vs. Alabama. The thug may have known this and was nevertheless looking for his destiny.

He found it. At the foot of Edison Bridge.

7. It should be a tip off when someone walks into even a diner sans shirt...

 

A fuck-up is about to act out. Peculiar behavior, but true.

I don't know if the man defending himself is a licensed CCW, but his actions after the shooting are a lesson for all: He was probably in greater danger when the police arrived, and acted accordingly. I wonder if the state's attorney is trying to see of felony murder is warranted, esp. regarding the "friendly" attempt at a hand shake.

I wonder how this incident would play out in General Discussion.
