attempted murder sounds right. He should be charged with attempted murder.
I agree, attempted murder and the penalty for attempted murder should be the same as murder, why give a guy a break because he failed?

"A Georgia driver is accused of firing multiple shots at another vehicle during what authorities have reportedly called a “road rage incident” on Highway 92 in Cherokee County. Local deputies said defendant Wade McEwan, 61, of Acworth, shot at least 14 rounds, according to WSB-TV. McEwan is accused of blocking victim Jason Daxon, 25, from passing him several times. The 61-year-old then opened fire on the younger man, deputies said. “Both vehicles were stopped at the traffic light at the intersection of Highway 92 and Woodstock Road when McEwan began firing through his drivers side window the sheriff’s office explained in a press release obtained by The Telegraph of Macon, Georgia. Daxon turned and headed in the other direction, but McEwan kept firing, the authorities have alleged. The 25-year-old was shot twice but managed to pull off the road, according to the WSB report. McEwan was reportedly charged with aggravated assault, reckless conduct, and reckless driving."

So you shoot into someone's car 14 times, hit them twice and all you get charged with is assault and reckless driving?? WTF?? On top of that, an officer witnessed the shooting and he of all people should have clearly seen that what this guy did was attempted murder -- police themselves have fired into cars over 137 times for a lot less of a reason -- I don't know if this happened in one of those "good ol boy" counties but there is no way if this was the other way around; Mr. Daxon would be able to shoot at someone's car 14 times and not be charged with attempted murder; especially if he shot the occupant twice, once in the arm, one in the back....fortunately, the victim will survive his injuries -- but only charging this guy with assault seems like insult to injury....
Isnt this just normal American culture ?

Except thats all a lie, of course. There are a MILLION of these stories coming out of democrat cities.



Do you know Cherokee county? It was historically the place for bootleggers. Woodstock is a beautiful place to live now.

It's also solidly Republican.

It's ok to lie about what cash bail reform actually is:


Those who are not eligible for swift release or personal bonds include those arrested:


  • and charged with domestic violence, violating a protective order in a domestic violence case, or making a terroristic threat against a family or household member;
  • and charged with assault;
  • and charged with a second or subsequent driving-under-the-influence (DUI) offense

So no, no "Democrat" elected anywhere is arguing for swift pre-trial releases of people who commit violent crimes, aggravated felonies, etc....but you should be happy that those in your Trump circle jerk are getting that swift release for their felony charges...
Lol, right they don't argue for it they do it. It's all over the news all the time. Even a liar like you can see it.

So in other words, you too can't point to anything that supports your bullshit?

Got it....

Suburb of Atlanta = Democrat controlled.
They should add the charge of not enough firearm practice too.

It's a republican country that voted for Trump by nearly 70% -- go deflect on someone else's thread

It must be pretty pathetic to rely on disingenuous arguments as a tactic -- because the truth isn't on your side...

Fact of the matter is, this could have happened in any part of the country....but only morons like yourself have some reflexive need to pretend this happening in a "democrat" area makes the story any less terrible to the person who was almost killed and his family....but....folks like you never think about people like him anyway....probably more sympathetic to the shooter...
