    The driver has heart, but man he had no situational awareness, both men were back in their car pulling off when he turned around and shot at his friend. Something seems off though the men in the Audi timed that to well like they knew they were walking out to the car. Pay attention to your surroundings ,and just watch who you call your friends.

      @Tater Puddin it's not about the ones that are involved here. It's a general problem in the USA. Just fucking close every gun shop, take away all firearms from all people and that's it. There will be WAY less such disasters. That's what I hate about the US

    most autistic charge I have ever heard. If you shoot at a cop and the cop uses an innocent family as a backstop it is alright. They just charge the perp with the murder.

    "he was charged with aggravated assault for the shot that went into an innocent bystander, and is that fair and good? The unfortunate answer is yes..." Unfortunate? It's unfortunate that he was charged for firing wildly into the street? It's unfortunate that he was charged for putting other people's lives at risk while defending himself? It's unfortunate that panic is not an admissible defense in court? Now, a trained shooter shoots an attacker, the on-target bullet passes through their body, strikes an innocent bystander, and them being charged because *technically* they shot an innocent person? That would be unfortunate. Inserting the term "unfortunate" into that sentence implies you wish that weren't the case, and that you wish being a victim of a crime wrote you a blank check to do whatever you wanted in order to defend yourself.

    Well you're going to the store and somebody still in the car no no one's first instinct is to lock the door. Especially when they're literally at the front door of the place. I know it's typically the smarters option, that's usually never the first instinct. Except that a gas station of course. And even then people might just leave their door open. It's going to be in and out, yes you never know what's going to happen but I'm not going to fucking that like a pussy every time.

    So he should be held accountable for blind firing to avoid being shot, when he would of been shot 90/100x, but maybe accidently shoot someone else 1/1000x's, so your asking him devalue his life significantly below that of every other person, and then punishing him for not doing it? Because he's unlucky. Anyways this is why guns shouldn't be legal lol. Too many shootings wow.

    Holy good god damn your commercials are getting to be longer than your entire videos!!! 6:17 - You don't think this is a bad guy. Hmm, let's look at things a bit here. Gold chains. Cadillac SUV. Bling-a-bling. This is 100% entirely a gang-v-gang situation and nothing else. As for the bystander: The people from the silver car should face 100% of those charges. It was by their actions that this fight occurred and, thereby, it was their actions that resulted in the bystander being shot. The driver should face *NO* charges for that unfortunate incident - he should face charges for any other violations (concealed carry w/o permit, potential felon in possession of a firearm, ect) if any apply. The persons in the silver car should be ventilated and thrown in the landfill. Potentially the occupants of the SUV, if they are gangers/felons, because they've shown a blatant disregard for the laws and civil behavior. They would be considered dangerous animals and should be dealt with accordingly; joining the others from the car in the landfill.

    It was a setup, that back passenger knew what was up. notice how he delays getting in the truck and you see him looking around before it even happen plus he hit the ground so quick like he rehearsed this already. He had his phone with him he probably sent a text letting them know when to pullup, how else would they have known to drive up right when they are leaving and exactly where to go. They probably promised he wouldnt get hurt and he will get something for his trouble. Gotta watch your own people 🐍

    Very irresponsibly placed rounds. A gun is a powerful tool, so you better take the responsibility that is wielding it. People keep saying he shouldn’t have been charged at all, he most certainly should have been charged with something. Also as you hear in the video he wasn’t charged with anything super super serious anyways.

    The problem with using the gun as a noise maker is you can't just open fire if there's no immediate threat, even though that's debatable depending on the situation. And because you'll always end up hitting something unless you can find a pile of dirt where it wont ricochet.

    Not sure why the driver didn't turn and light up the two shooters in the Audi after he was clear of the truck if he had the wherewithal to hop out and start wildly shooting ....the shooters had yet to pull off when the driver ran out of the frame. Also, locking the doors can be a "barrier" to you as well because your door won't open....you'll be fumbling around with the door lock button trying to get out, which may likely lead to your ending. Some vehicle doors open from the inside if locked....others don't. I drive a Suburban and you gotta' hit that unlock button to get that door open from the inside
