    I'll kick this off. A little surprised it hasn't been mentioned.

    On first look, this appears far worse than the FL convenience store shooting.

    DA sits on case for two months. Video surfaces, GBI arrests father and son for murder of unarmed man they pursued after allegedly spotting him peering into a house under construction.

    Also arrests man who pursued victim and filmed confrontation.

    This is something right out of a Reba McEntire song.

          Wow. String them up. This is quickly evolving in the “premeditated” direction.

          I will wait until all the facts come out.

          However, first or second degree murder this was not

          I will also state that an unarmed man attacking an armed man is just stupid, especially when there are TWO armed men. As a combat just jujitsu practitioner, we practice against single and double unared and armed attackers using dummy weapons. It usually doesnt end well for the defender when 2 armed attackers are involved.

          Interesting how the deceased has a weapons charge and the shooter has experience with him in the juvenile courts. Also as caught peeping in the window of a house. NONE of which was mentioned before the story came out. The story is this kid was just jogging and minding hiw own business when these dudes gunned him down for no reason.

          My guess is the truth is somewhere in between.

            No one knows if the unarmed guy attacked the armed one.

              Not sure where you first heard about this, but I knew he'd had brushes with the law and was reported to have been seen looking into the partially constructed house within minutes of it being on my radar earlier this week.

              So, yeah, it was mentioned.

              I have questions about whether he was just jogging and minding his own business. I also question anyone who would go after someone with who was armed with a shotgun, but maybe he thought that was a better choice than fleeing and taking it in the back.

              Would like to hear how the father and son had any standing whatsoever to pursue and attempt to detain someone under the circumstances as we know them now.

              If they knew who he was, why not just call the cops and have them question him?

              Lot's of questions that need to be answered. I'm fairly confident we'll get a complete accounting.

              But like I said, it doesn't look good for the father and son at first glance.

              I'm guessing the defense will be they knew this guy was a bad actor, and that's why they acted the way they did.

                  This.

                  Though Im not surprised at all that the "jogger" had a previous felony that no one mentioned until now.

                    Why didn't they just call the cops? Are these guys related to George Zimmerman?

                    I think I will grab my 12 gauge and Sig 40 and patrol my neighborhood tonight.

                      Yep.

                      Makes me wonder if they were carrying a grudge due to past encounters and saw this as an opportunity to settle accounts.

                        Whatever they saw that guy do is irrelevant. They instigated the confrontation and the guy got killed. They should be tried convicted and sent to prison for life.

                          Based on everything I've seen so far, that's where I'd come down.

                              Yeah.....even though the MSM and the left never let a white guy shooting black guy story go to waste, this does look bad at first glance.....like other posters have said, why not call the cops if you think he is a suspect? And how can you claim self defense when you have the guns and he doesn’t?

                              But I will say this...,I’m sure the victim wasn’t as innocent as is being portrayed and the second thing....I’m still waiting for the MSM or BLM to come here to Jax and protest the daily black on black shootings....I guess a black person’s life only matters when a white person takes it
