Who are the "they" who were 'looking at him hard'? Was it actually the police?
Well i dont think the mail man investigates burglaries. :roll:

Once again, did i think he got caught in the act? YES. Do i think these two knucklehrads should go to jail? YES.

There are some text messages from active police officers to these two saying if there is something shady going on, for them to do something. Seems the locals are rather corrupt/lazy.

I'm with HTRN on this.

There's video that's come out that's apparently of the dead dude trying to shoplift. He wasn't exactly upstanding.

These two goobers were criminally foolish, too.

If that's true, I suspect it will torpedo the murder charges.

The narrative seems to be that the two white dudes picked random black dude jogging through the neighborhood because racism. But if they recognized that specific dude from the security tape, while it doesn't mean they aren't still racists, it does cast the element of racism as cause for the confrontation in doubt. None of those details mean that they won't (or shouldn't) go to prison, but as I said before, they do make it perhaps not the open and shut murder case that is being assumed.
I haven't heard that narrative at all. It's more like they were racist for assuming that because it was a black guy walking around in the home under construction it had to be the same guy who stole a 9mm out of Jr's car.

I have no idea if they are racist or not. I do not know if the shot dude was a burglar in his spare time or not either (I am confident he was not a choir boy.) One just cannot do what they did.

One interesting point, I seems our hero lost his badge (as many retired officers retain) and arresting rights because he seems to have refused to go to firearms and use of force training. I think perchance he could have used it.
