Wrong. Fleeing the scene of a minor crash is a misdemeanor. All they need is the license plate, and call the cops. Presumably they could have gotten the plate number and left. They took justice into their own hands instead.Bikers followed her home after she hit them with their vehicle and failed to stop. You make it seem like they followed her for no reason. It was a hit and run. They were outside waiting for the cops to arrive when she came out with a gun pointed at them. One of the rules of gun ownership is don't point a gun at someone if you don't intend to shoot. She seems like a horrible gun owner, and it cost her her life. I'm sure someone in the neighborhood had cameras so more will come out.
You’re entitled to your opinion on this, but if you kill a person that is in their own house after you followed them home with a group of your friends, it seems to me unlikely you can claim self-defense. There was no need for you to chase the person home. And if you did… when they came out of their home with a gun, you should have left.
The misdemeanor hit-and-run issue is NOT a justification to follow somebody home and trespass on their property.
The penalty for a hit-and-run with no injuries is NOT death by vigilante. I hope this guy does some serious time in prison. I don’t want people to think they can chase people home whenever they get road rage and shoot them and get away with it.
But on the larger issue - more guns = more violence. The NRA claims it is the other way around but they are straight-up lying.
