Should read SUPPORTERS of Aubery shooting defendants.

What am I not underatanding? What makes you think these guys were in the right?

Am I wrong that two white guys with guns chased down a black guy and tried to restrain him and put him in a truck, he reached for their gun to try to defend himself and they shot him?

How can you argue that the black guy deserved death? If two people with guns (especially if it's Georgia and I'm black and they're white) tried to restrain me I would be terrified and attempt to defend myself in any way possible.

This wasn't a citizens arrest as they didn't observe any crime; this was a lynching.

Where does my analysis fall apart? Thanks.

Serious discussion only ITT please.

no one is saying he deserved to die for committing non-violent property crimes. if the hicks shot him as he was running away i would say they deserve to fry. however, he was fleeing from a crime and attacked a man wielding a gun, trying to take it from him. at that point, the hicks had no choice.

I have to admit I don't understand the rationale behind citizen's arrest. If any person not wearing a police uniform approached me and tried to restrain me I would be terrified and use lethal force to attempt to free myself. Are we supposed to just submit to random people who claim we have done something illegal? Who would actually do this irl?

let's say on one end of the spectrum there's a rape in progress on a philly subway. and at the other end of the spectrum you have a hick restraining you with a gun based on nothing. i think we can both agree that a citizen should be allowed to stop a violent crime in progress, and that a citizen should not be allowed to restrain another based on nothing.

so, our point of contention boils down to the degree of certainty required for a citizen take the law into their own hands and restrain someone. there's a big chasm and a lot of gray between a violent crime in progress and baseless speculation. in arbery's case, he had been robbing the neighborhood for weeks, there was video of that and they had a description of him, and he had been casing houses that morning and was fleeing after getting caught. to me, that's sufficient evidence for a citizen to restrain him until the police came. if you disagree with that, that's fine, i accept that reasonable minds can differ on this. but it's disingenuous to say that they were restraining him on mere speculation. they had the right guy. he was fleeing a crime.

if you read between the lines from what the media reports, yes. i don't think we can ever confirm it because arbery is det. however, someone "fitting his description" was caught on video several times. multiple witnesses. arbery's mother admitted it was him in the video from that morning casing the house. the crimes stopped after arbery got got. it would be a wild coincidence if there is some one-armed man type 2nd jogger out there.

arbery probably would have gotten off had he disarmed the shooter and shot him because, ironically, he's black and they are white

why arbery didn't just run into the yards and try to escape that way is the sad unfortunate part. that's what most would have done, not try to disarm the guy

As I have said a million times if some non-police actor (especially one with a gun) approached me and tried to deprive me of my liberty I would be terrified (Who is this person? Are they a drunk? Psycho? Where are they going to take me? What are they going to do to me?) and I would certainly use lethal force to defend myself. If you try to do that to me you have surrendered your right to keep breathing. It's funny that xoxo is usually so pro-self defense (Rittenhouse, Trayvon) yet when a black guy defends in self against what he had every reason to believe were Deliverance-style whacko rednecks he "should have run away."

Assuming Arbery is the one who stole guns from that neighborhood the shooters did a huge service to the black community by keeping more guns off the street. The mostly white jury was demonstrating their white privilege by signaling that black criminals should be allowed to terrorize their communities by putting stolen guns on the street and killing one another.

They were in the right because Arbery was a nigger and we hate niggers. Anytime someone kills a ghetto nigger they are automatically in the right. Anytime a nigger enters the boundary of a white neighborhood, they better well have a legit reason for being there (service worker or whatever), be on alert to be on their best behavior and preferably be uniformed in their service attire to make it clear why they are there. Arbery clearly violated this longheld social contract and got what he deserved. At the same time, I don't mind that the defendants got fucked since they were stupid enough to film themselves taking out the trash.

None. The United States should implement a widespread and total gun buyback program with a 1 year amnesty period to sell your guns back to the Government or else face the consequences of the decision not to.

The Australian Government in cooperation with the Federal Police implemented a buyback program following the Port Arthur Massacre that has all but eliminated violent crime. This program was fully supported by both sides.

The tides are turning in the US. Wild west shootouts arent popular regardless of what your online right wing echo chamber would have you believe.

It's going to be hilarious when gun nuts start seeing their fellow gun nut friends handing over their entire arsenals to the Government.

A Wild West shootout terrorizes Austin in broad daylight and not one suspect is charged?

Aldermen are furious, as well they should be. One person was killed. Two were wounded. More than 70 shell casings were found.

Many aldermen are furious over the handling of a brazen gunfight in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood on Friday in which the suspects walked away without a single criminal charge being filed.

We entirely understand. In a city where authorities should be doing everything to quell a surge in violence, there’s a shoot-out like at the OK Corral, an entire block is endangered and several obvious suspects are detained.

And then nothing.

This was a shocking incident, even in a city that seems increasingly inured to daily violence, caught on video and described by one source as “just like the Wild West.” More than 70 shell casings were found, and many more shots likely were fired. Police apparently arrived in time to witness at least part of the shootout.

Editorials

Who can blame anybody for asking: “If charges can’t be filed in a case like this, when can they?”

Who can blame anybody for thinking that the handling of this case will embolden thugs to shoot and kill with even greater abandon?

Reporter Tom Schuba wrote in Monday’s Sun-Times that the firefight, which left one shooter dead and two suspects wounded, grew out of an internal dispute between two factions of the Four Corner Hustlers street gang, according to an internal police report and a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation.

At least three individuals reportedly jumped out of two cars and began to shoot into a brick house. Those inside the house fired back. When the shooting stopped, those in the house refused to come out until a SWAT team arrived.

Schuba’s source said police sought to charge all five suspects with murder and aggravated battery. But instead, after discussion with prosecutors, the suspects were released without charges. On Monday, police said an investigation is continuing.

This page has long argued that criminal charges should be brought by police and prosecutors only when there is sufficient evidence to support a case. Too often in the past, cases have been built using torture, false confessions and the strangest stretching of the evidence. But the pendulum can’t be allowed to swing so far in the opposite direction that obvious suspects walk away from crime scenes with impunity.

On Monday, Mayor Lori Lightfoot and five West Side aldermen sent a letter to Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx asking her to reconsider the decision not to bring felony charges. “Giving these kinds of violent offenders a pass when their crime is fully captured on video and with police on the scene is simply unacceptable,” they wrote.

Amen to that.

The police and state’s attorney office must work together on this one to achieve justice. Friday’s shooting is sure to spread terror into the heart of every Austin resident, and throughout a city traumatized by gun violence. For the suspects to be at large — not even on electronic monitoring — can make no one feel safe.

At Monday’s City Council budget hearing, Ald. Chris Taliaferro (29th), chairman of the Public Safety Committee, promptly asked Chicago Police Supt. David Brown, who recently on CNN decried “violent people in possession of weapons,” about the case. Brown said the police department is committed to holding any guilty parties accountable.

Taliaferro, who signed the letter with Lightfoot and the four other aldermen, told us, “When I first heard people were taken into custody and that no one was charged, I was floored, frustrated and furious all at the same time. I could understand why our community is very concerned about the violence that is prevalent in Chicago and why there is such an appearance that nothing significant is being done about it.”

Late in the evening on Monday, Foxx responded with a statement that read in part: “The detectives reached out to our office on Friday and acknowledged at the outset that given the chaotic nature at the scene they were unable to determine how the events unfolded. We reviewed the evidence that was presented to us in consultation with the detectives and they agreed we were unable to approve charges based on the evidence presented.”

Nothing? No charges? Of any sort? Though the cops arrived at the scene before the shoot-out ended? Yes, let’s hope this is not the end on this case.

A police report reportedly stated Foxx’s office cited “mutual combatants” as a reason not to press charges. “Mutual combatants” is a phrase cops use to describe, for example, two people who agree to go outside a bar and fight. Police infamously used the concept as an excuse not to investigate the case of David Koschman, the young man who died in 2004 after being punched by a nephew of a former mayor.

But on Monday, lawyers with both defense and prosecutorial backgrounds told us the idea of “mutual combatants” simply does not apply here. Not when there’s a lethal firefight in broad daylight.

Kim Foxx had better review every aspect of this case: How the arrests were made, how the evidence was assessed and the curious legal rationale and policies that led to not one charge being filed against anybody.

In this case and every case like it.

Police make quite a bit more than that here and are required to attain a Bachelor's Degree or higher in Police Science

You people are deranged. Cause and effect dingus. If you didn't have to worry about guns, you wouldn't need to call the authorities anyway.
