What’s really surprising is that one of the men was a former police officer.
That said, I’m aware that Aubury was no angel. I believe he was arrested for shoplifting at one point and there is video of him walking though a construction site, possibly casing it, but I’m sure you’d agree that it makes little difference Aubury’s past with respect to how the McMichaels handled themselves.
The driver that shot the video has also been charged with murder, though the prosecution will have to prove that the man (Bryant?) knew what the McMichaels were planning to do.
That said, I was also mugged by 5 black men when I was 15 on a bridge between Somerville and Medford Massachusetts. I was fortunate to escape unharmed as one had a gun and several others had bats and other assorted accouterments.
I will add that I haven’t seen any “left-wing” coverage of the shooting, but I won’t deny the media ALL MEDIA has a tendency to shape their coverage to their audience and that is unfortunate and I don’t support it nor do I think it should be tolerated.
