5 for evil, but I'm not watching that. I'm assuming it;s raw video footage of three people being shot.
It is. However, as it's a street camera, you don't actually see it.
Which makes it all that much worse.
What's the objection? People dying in real life is almost always less dramatic and gory than the movies.
With the rare exception, the people in the movies aren't actually being killed, no matter how painful-looking or blood-spattered their deaths are.
I'm think I'm kinda with Ryo on this one.
That is to say, my murderous killing sprees in real life are way less fun than in video games.

Lame as fuck.
Stars for the situation, and for the douchebaggery that got me into thinking there'd be more to this vid.

a natural and logical extention of an exceptionally stupid law
Not sure if anyone remembers, but I recall the media and the internet filled with anti-Bush people (like me) predicting that this very thing would happen at some point. It's probably going to keep happening. Bush doctorin' will be a Southern expression for driving out folks at the barrel of a gun. That will be his legacy.

Attorneys for a Florida man who allegedly killed two people at a Labor Day barbecue filed a motion to have their client's murder charges dismissed under the state's "Stand Your Ground" law, Florida Today reported Wednesday.
Police said William T. Woodward "snuck up" on the barbecue and opened fire on three neighbors, killing two men and injuring one, according to the newspaper. In addition to the state's 'Stand Your Ground' law, Woodward's legal team also argued that the three men posed an imminent threat to Woodward because they had been threatening to "get him" in the hours prior to the shooting.
The motion argued that Woodward could have expected an attack based on those words alone. It cited the "Bush Doctrine" to justify Woodward's response to the perceived threats, referring to George W. Bush's concept of waging pre-emptive war against potential threats before they metastasize into imminent threats.
“I think legally that term has sort of been evolving especially given changes of our government’s definition of ‘imminent,’” Robert Berry, one of the attorneys representing Woodward, told Florida Today. “It’s become more expansive than someone putting a gun right to your head. It’s things that could become, you know, an immediate threat.”
Not sure, the article didn't say if the victims are black males.
"Two of the victims, Gary Lee Hembree and Roger Picior, died, while a third, Bruce Timothy, survived despite being shot 11 times."
Dude is gonna fry. Those are the whitest names ever.

Because until I clicked the link I was convinced this was the Onion.

I just sort of watched what the government did, and using it as a model, scaled it down and applied it to my own life....

Remember when the superhero "Florida Man" wasn't quite so violent?
I blame Frank Miller. He's probably writing for him now.
Actually I think it's Liefeld. They probably confiscated his swords and pouches.

Am I the only person who was more offended by the woman casually adressing the murderer? Does this sort of thing happen so often it has become blase?
She's a police officer. She's doing a great job of letting him incriminate himself. Respect.
It's not a police officer's job to place value judgements on suspects, even when they know damn well that a crime has been committed. You're just shocked to see a cop doing their job properly for once.
