Racial comment sparked fatal punch in Las Vegas casino, say cops - Crimesider - CBS News
Hard to buy the self defense angle. Too bad the security video isn't public.
I am more interested in knowing why dat black man has my family name, I can bet you he's not of an Irish/anglo decent
they gonna put dat man in prison.
The two biggest reasons why you should avoid fighting people you don't know.
1. They might kick your ass
2. They might have a glass jaw and you might kill them with just one punch.
I wonder if the defense will go for an incitement defense (the idea being that there aer some words that are so inflammatory that they provoke an immediate emotional reaction that can lead to a breach of peace.
I doubt the guy knew when he punched Massie that Massie would die from a single punch.
IMO, the incitement defense is bullshit to begin with. But regardless, "black man in a yellow shirt?" Really?
I work as a bouncer on saturdays for a Mexican night club. I get insults, hit with bottles, spit at etc., I don't loose my cool.
I've been in situations where I've been hard put not to throat punch someone, so I'm not sure that incitement is, in fact, bullshit. But, in this case, it is a definite reach. I don't think he should be charged with homicide, though. I think it seems more like manslaughter.
Perhaps not everyone is as mellow and emotionally well-balanced as you.
