    "A vigilante who put a man in a choke hold without warning from behind when he saw him enter a Florida Wal-Mart with a concealed firearm has been charged with battery.
    Michael Foster, who is white, decided to take the law into his own hands on Tuesday morning and launched himself on Clarence Daniels, who is black, fearing a shooting.
    Foster, 43, was helped by other shoppers in the Brandon store, but when sheriff's arrived they discovered that 62-year-old Daniels possessed a permit for his gun and arrested the would-be hero."


    LOL at the daily mail calling this hothead a "hero."




    You all KNEW that this was in Florida. :wink:

    Are the news in the USA often told like that?

    Not that I care that much about it, I am just curious

    Did he grab him because he was a black guy with a gun or did he grab him because he had a gun.

    And, here, we, go.....

    Now, ya.

    It's getting worse and worse, I'm only 26 and I don't remember them superfluously injecting race into this many news stories until fairly recently.

    What a dumbass. You don't assault people that are carrying a gun unless it's obvious they're about to use it.

    I wonder if future news stories will be written like "A white man in his 50's killed a 20 year old white man today with a knife"

    Yeah. Whenever you can shoe-horn in racial overtones, your stories always get more attention. White vs. Black especially hot right now, so the news plays it up however they can.

    The headline is from the daily mail. It's from the UK.

    Actually I'll amend my earlier comment:

    If it's white on black crime they'll state the races of the individuals involved, for all other crimes, black on white, white on white, black on Hispanic etc, they won't.

    You didnt watch the video. The white dude saw the black dude put it in his waistband.
    Not sure what I would do in this situation, but guns always put me on high alert.

    Clear case of battery and some kind of imprisonment charge for not letting the guy go.

    Well seeing a gun in Hawaii is not the norm for me. So if I see someone putting a gun in their waistband and walking into walmart im probably assuming they intend to use it

    Culture of fear at work. You've been conditioned by Hollywood and the media.

    So what exactly would you do in this situation? Nothing? What if the guy looked like a "thug"
    Youd honestly pull him aside and ask him for a CC permit?

    Id probably call the cops

    I would have dropped it in the American Gun Rights thread.

    It's a great assumption (in Hawaii) that the person is carrying illegally. It's not a good assumption they intend to do something illegal in the Wal-Mart.
