You see it everyday on the road.  Young, old, men, and women.  People thinkin there bad because they dont think anyone can get to them because there in the car.  Its like these dudes acting hard online.  People love to act but when it comes time to man up the act is over.   Never really get why people fake the funk.  If your real your real if not stop pretending.

Call him reynolds cause its a WRAP for dude. Your only allowed to shoot if your life is in imminent danger and only then can you respond with the same amount of force.. spitting doesn't qualify for blasting off. On a side note, I bet that dude learned to stop trying to act hard body in front of his passengers.

sooooooo, someone exiting their vehicle at a light and approaching yours, after an exchange while driving cannot be conceived as an immediate bodily threat??????  Dude did not know what homeboy was about to do........I am not saying dude was in the right, but I dont see him completely at fault either...

Relax, i'm not saying I agree or disagree... i'm just stating the law. Unless the dude pulled a gun or tried shanking him, he can't legally blast him. Even if the guy spit in his face, spit wont kill you and he still couldn't shoot... and its not like all the passengers got out and surrounded him. The most he's allowed to do is pull out the gun and get the dude back and even that could be considered brandishing a weapon which you can get locked for.  Point is, he's gonna get locked up on a technicality and it sucks because the other $**%#$% obviously persisted and escalated the situation to a whole other level.
