Lot of anger and ignorance in these posts.

They come in all colors. Stupid is stupid no matter what race you are.

White guy…no comments. If he was Black, wow.

Well, race baiter, the white guy didn’t, try to shoot the neighbor, fight/shoot the officer, or run from the police.
Instead he admitted to displaying a handgun at the two victims, and was peacefully arrested. NO DRAMA.

AMAZING how being peaceful with the police works out.

Wonder if the people who he threatened feel that way?

He was white so they didn’t shoot him.

Well, race baiter, the white guy didn’t, try to shoot the neighbor, fight/shoot the officer, or run from the police.

Race had nothing to do with it, NOT being a douche, does.

That wouldn’t fit your race baiting narrative though, in your tiny, Democrat, racist mind, it’s always about race and NOT actions.

“Wonder if the people who he threatened feel that way?”

You wonder, if the people who he threatened feel there was DRAMA during his arrest?

That’s what the comment above yours is about.

It literally says, “Instead he admitted to displaying a handgun at the two victims, and was peacefully arrested. NO DRAMA.”

Do you see it, “and was peacefully arrested. NO DRAMA.”?

For one, you said he didn’t try to shoot the neighbors. When you point a gun at someone, you intent is to shoot them. Why else would you point it at them? To the 2nd guy, if this guy would have been black, the approach of the police possibly would have been different. They wouldn’t go up to his apartment and knock on the door. He had a weapon.

Race Baiter,

You’re trying to deal in, “What ifs”. What if the rabbit had stopped to poop, the dog would have caught him.

What if Darrel Brooks hadn’t of driven his SUV into the crowd? People wouldn’t have died.

We can play “What if” all day, it won’t change the facts of WHAT DID happen.

To address, “For one, you said he didn’t try to shoot the neighbors. When you point a gun at someone, you intent is to shoot them. Why else would you point it at them?”

Most uses of a gun are as a deterrent, not as an actual weapon. In most instances showing a gun/weapon will change the dynamics.

Years ago, I lived on an acreage. I woke up one night hearing people outside, they were trying to steal stuff. When I turned on the yard light and closed the slide on the shot gun, I didn’t have the intention of shooting them, just scaring the shit out of them, they ran like deer. They even left me their tools.

Just because someone wields a gun doesn’t mean that they are out to shoot/kill everyone they see.
