Rasheem Scott, 25, recently stopped at a gas station in Atlanta, Georgia when he was suddenly accosted by a thug who tried to steal his car. Scott responded by pulling out his gun and shooting his attacker dead, saving both his vehicle and his life.
What happened next, however, is horrifying.
According to Law Newz, Atlanta police have now secured murder warrants against Scott for killing the carjacker.
Witnesses say Scott left his black sedan running outside the gas station, and a man and woman got inside it to try and steal it.
“I heard five shots, and I look back, and the girl is screaming, ‘Don’t shoot him no more,’” the witness said. “She just screaming, ‘Don’t shoot him no more. Please don’t shoot him no more.’”
Afterwards, Scott immediately walked back into the store and told the employees to call the police. He turned himself into authorities, likely never suspecting he’d be charged with murder for protecting his vehicle.
Scott is hoping to be saved by Georgia’s stay your ground law, which states:
§ 16-3-23.1. No duty to retreat prior to use of force in self-defense
A person who uses threats or force in accordance with Code Section 16-3-21, relating to the use of force in defense of self or others, Code Section 16-3-23, relating to the use of force in defense of a habitation, or Code Section 16-3-24, relating to the use of force in defense of property other than a habitation, has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and use force as provided in said Code sections, including deadly force.
This story is yet another disturbing example of criminals being protected over patriots in Obama’s America. SHARE this story if you think Scott should NOT be charged with murder!
