This is your opinion. Like I said. Look up where this is.

When you go down a road that you have no business on in the middle of the sticks, yes, this might happen. I already said it is not the smartest but you know what, people like to be private and are very protective of their property.

Again, I will ask, and I have not seen it in any article.

DID HE DELIVER A PACKAGE TO THE ANY HOUSE ON THE STREET?

If not, I would love to know why he was on a dead end street? They do not have GPS or a phone to make sure he is going to the correct place.

Google Fed Ex truck shot at

Why does it have the say Black man shot at by white men?

www.theguardian.com...



A Black FedEx driver who was allegedly shot at by a white father and son in Mississippi while delivering packages said he “can definitely see the similarities” between his case and that of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man who was murdered in 2020 by three white men while jogging in Georgia.


Again, something does not sound right about the entire thing. I am sure the driver will wind up suing someone and not have to deliver anymore.

Yes he had a package. That was not in dispute among fed ex or the police.

I'm sorry, you are armed and trying to stop me, I'm not stopping. As I said, if they wanted to talk, could have stayed on the side of the road, waved, made a motion to roll down the window to talk.

I just had that happen as I was in a new EV to drive for a few weeks for work. I didn't panic, I stopped, answered some questions and chit chatted for a minute. Even as a female I didn't feel intimidated. However, if 2 guys were standing in the middle of the street and one was armed, yeah I'm not stopping.

No it won't.

The stupidity that these two morons put on display will not be denied by the possibility of future consequences...stupid can't be fixed.

FedX driver needs to grow a pair.


What was he supposed to do?? Stand there, or sit in his truck I suppose, and get shot??

Seriously?

I'm with the driver, I'm gettin' outta Dodge, as they say.

Why do you say he would get shot? Seriously folks. It is not like someone walked up to the truck and just opened fire through the windshield. They asked to stop and he took off.

Should they have opened fire? No, and I said that before. However, why run?

If he was in a very bad part of a town and someone walked up brandishing a weapon ok, but really, a dead end street in the middle of nowhere and if he is delivering packages i would think he is being tracked. Not like he would go missing.

Because they were armed. Who stands in the middle of the road armed to talk. Especially if as you say it's a street in the middle of no where. That's even more concerning. Say what you want, but a young guy on a street in the middle of no where and two older men, one armed want to "talk"? When you are just there because you're doing your job? Uh, that's a nope for me.

You say it's understandable in a bad neighborhood but maybe in this young man's experiences it might not be a good idea in an isolated area.

Not someone who wants to shoot people. If he wanted to shoot him when they were stopping they would have killed him. Right?

I am not saying what these guys did was right. I am saying something with the drivers story is not adding up.

Why do you say he wouldn't get shot??

Do you know him?? Do you know his psychological make-up??

I doubt it.

I'm a firm believer in erring on the side of not getting shot. The fact that the two goobers decided it was OK to try and chase him down tells me they're not exactly playing with a full deck, either one of 'em.

are you saying you would do the same as these two wackos?

you know brandishing a firearm is a felony right?

you know that even in Florida with the most wacko stand your ground laws these guys would go to jail?

do you know police officers aren't allowed to shoot into a moving car when there is not a DIRECT threat to someones life? cops are sitting in jail for doing what these two did but your saying its okay?

Do you own any firearms? Have you ever been shot at?

tell me what law this fedEx employee did that was illegal?

do you think a sane, sober and rational man would stand in the middle of the road waving a gun over fedEx packages?

if your neighbor was out of town and you saw a person come out of their house you didn't recognize would you pull a gun on them(again illegal)? would you shoot them? Only to find out later it was a house sitter or a family member

do you see how this is a slippery slope?

these men should have called the police and than FedEx and let them deal with it.

the son should be thanking God the driver didn't run him over as the driver who was getting shot at would be well within his rights to protect himself? you know there is no difference in a deadly force encounter between a gun and a car right?

if the drive ran the idiot over who do you think would go to jail?

My words.



I am not saying what these guys did was right. I am saying something with the drivers story is not adding up.


No. I would not pull a gun on someone who I did not think was a threat on my own property. Not my business. I have stated the guys should not have shot at him.

I don't believe the driver from what I have read. My opinion. I think there is more to the story. Shooter. Dumb Ass. Driver. Sketchy. I think, to be honest drugs are involved and it is the guys with guns who maybe were looking for a different delivery from a Hertz Rent a Van.

If someone came into the road with a gun in my case it would not matter. We would be even. But would I shoot at him since he is aiming a weapon at me or drive away? I am not sure.

Are you?

None of us can say until it happens but in this case, if he would have stopped no one would have been killed. Why does that seem the end game for some of you.

So, in that case, with that threat, would you shoot them?

he was in a rental truck because fedex was working on all the 'extra' ones including his and they also subcontract out to local van companies to make sure deliveries are on time.

If someone was shooting at me would i shoot them? in a heart beat.

You should probably look up what a public thoroughfare is and why it's called such. This wasn't Cletus and Goober Avenue on their private estate.

How can you say if he stopped no one would have been killed? You have no idea what these amped up armed guys would have done. Maybe the kid would have explained, maybe the armed men wouldn't have believed he was working. We have many here that still are trying to justify a reason that they were trying to stop him. What if he got scared while they had the gun on him? Tried to run? Tried to defend himself?

In one post here someone referenced Arbery running, saying he should have kept running, now we hear, no this guy should have stopped. People turn themselves into pretzels to blame the victim. Wonder why?

Not if it were just a robbery.

I would shoot if I felt in danger if someone was in the road. I would also shoot at someone who would try to run me over.

I don't need to look up anything. Also, how do you know this was not a private road? Any proof? Pretty bigoted to call them Cletus and Goober.

Because I do not live in a world in fear. You are talking in nothing but maybes.

No one is dead. No one was actually shot. This is a race bait hit piece. That's it.

Also, no one is blaming the driver and to be honest his is not a victim.

honestly you chasing your tail and your wrong.

why would you be i the middle of the road blocking some one from leaving waving gun around?

dont you see hoe the dynamic duo escalated this right up to the line of a deadly force encounter over NOTHING?!

why do you think it is okay for two people who are not law enforcement to try and stop someone in the middle of the road with a firearm

they had zero reason to do that and the law isn't on their side.

why do you think it is anyone business what that man is doing other than the police and fedex?

why would ANYONE shoot someone over a perceived package theft? or do you condone civilians executing people in the middle of the street

Exactly, he is likely unarmed and even if he was the best scenario is to avoid the conflict as much as possible.
