Is it still standing your ground if you're sitting in a wheelchair?

Only if you scream a racial slur as you are firing.

Hunnicutt is married, and her husband was on the road for his job with a dental lab company when the shooting happened, Jones said.

Holy fark. Typically they don't release names until loved ones are notified, I feel for the guy.

This doesn't add up.

When police arrived, Hunnicutt was in cardiac arrest and officers began performing CPR.

The suspect, Frank Louis Reeves, was apprehended in the gas station parking lot. He was being held on a murder charge at the Bibb County Jail


So the woman died of a heart attack, yet it's the wheelchair guy's fault??

Cardiac arrest =/= heart attack. You should get a refund on that G.E.D. in medicine.

65 year old women tend to go into cardiac arrest when you shoot them.

Local paper's follow-up story:

"He kept saying, 'I shot her because she tried to hit me with her car,' " Whisby recalled. "And he never changed expression. I mean, it was just cold and, you know, he was just like he was discussing the weather. ... Something had to be wrong with him."

You see Timmy, when all your blood drains out of the bullet hole some guy in a wheelchair puts in you, your heart stops beating. The guy who shot you is generally considered to be at fault.

RIF, dumbass.

If a car hits you while you are sitting in your wheelchair then maybe.

A P.A. I used to know always said everyone dies from cardiac arrest. Also "heart attack" =/= "cardiac arrest" but still...

I'm sure Bob Costas will try to blame this on guns when Wheels could have just as easily stabbed her to death, maybe. If she was at just the right angle, kind of leaning into him. Stupid Costas.

Let this be a hint to drivers that they should be more careful. There are pedestrians, wheelchairs, school kids, bicycles, blind people and motorcycles all over the place. Even in Atlanta.

Also, if the guy in the wheelchair had been you, and the woman had been your boyfriend. The current boyfriend, not the ex. This never would have happened.

I think the shooter's farking CRAZY. It wasn't self defense because in the events described, she hit the brakes to avoid his wheelchair, and he rolled over to her car to shoot her. That's premeditated.

Should an old and infirmed man in a wheelchair have a handgun? Absolutely.

But at some point, the person becomes incompetent to properly wield the weapon. I fear that despite how terrible this incident was, we won't truly address the real issue: old people get incompetent and we don't do anything about it.

Fark the biatch. She hit him. Clearly an attempted murder on her part. Good on him for killing a goblin. I'd never convict him.

They're not sure if it was a wheelchair. In one part of the article they say it was a wheelchair. In a different part they say it was another vehicle.

They said nothing about him rolling over to her or about her hitting brakes to avoid his vehicle or wheelchair or whatever the heck was going on.

The few times I cruised thru GA to visit friends, when I got to Macon I would call just let them know that I Smell MACON!

Never stopped there. Don't want too. But they always knew where I was and how long it may take.
