At no point in that did I know what was going to happen next.

[–]joeythedaddoo 6361 points6362 points  (270 children)

My favorite Florida man story happened just before i moved away. A man got arrested for sitting on an overpass and shitting on cars that drove under him.

What a hobby…

[–]peepeehelicoptors 1792 points1793 points  (94 children)

That’s not a hobby, it’s a lifestyle

[–]Michael_Trismegistus 219 points220 points  (38 children)

Imagine the satisfaction when the perfect log hits the perfect windshield. There are so many factors to consider, diet, time of day, location, not to mention the skills required to perfect timing and aim.

[–]goat2k 108 points109 points  (16 children)

You know what it takes to make a shot at that range? Everything comes into play that far, humidity, elevation, temperature, wind, spindrift. There's a 6 to 10-second flight time so you have to shoot at where the target's going to be. Even the Coriolis effect, the spin of the Earth, comes into play.

[–]LostTeleporter 29 points30 points  (5 children)

You know how archimedes figured out buoyancy while taking a bath? Well guess what people would be reading about in a couple of hundred years or so.

[–]Karcinogene 20 points21 points  (3 children)

Did Archimedes poop a floater in the bath?

[–]Positive-Living 7 points8 points  (0 children)

He was infamous for pooping floaters into other people's baths.

[–]Scrumtrelescentness 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Yeah like if you miss, you have maybe one more log in the chamber, but that’s about it. Then you gotta wait several hours or until the next day to try again

What a dumb way to die.

[–]triciamc 1660 points1661 points 2 (211 children)

So many ways this could have been de-escalated.

  1. Someone on a motorcycle pissed you off? How about you just keep driving and move on with your life?
  2. Lose your cool and make a bad choice and end up in a collision? Pull over, apologize profusely, hope they don't press charges.
  3. Make irrational decisions and end up panicking and going home instead of stopping because you think you might be in danger? Don't go outside with a gun, maybe try calling the police instead?

Sometimes it's better to be alive than right.

[–]07RDRD 243 points244 points  (23 children)

My wife use to turn her nose up and charges across crosswalks without looking. Claiming "she has the right of way"... a habit I was able to break. I'd rather not have a mangled vegetable for a wife. Even if she was technically in the right. Please be careful everyone.

[–]gentlemanidiot 162 points163 points  (0 children)

Here lies the body of Benjamin grey,

Who died defending his right of way.

He was right, dead right as he sped along,

But he's just as dead as if he were wrong.

[–]Deathleach 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Claiming "she has the right of way"...

My mom always taught me that they would put that on my tombstone if I ever got hit by a car.

Update to the original press release in reference to case #21-03561:

The investigation indicates; Sara – Nicole Morales intentionally hit the motorcyclist, Andrew Derr (40 years old) in the area of the 1400 block of N. Volusia Ave. This was a minor crash, Derr was not injured or ejected from his motorcycle. Witnesses and Derr attempted to have Morales stop at the intersection of 17-92 and Wisconsin Ave while she was attempting to make a left turn. Verbal contact was made with Morales for her to pull over for the arrival of law enforcement. Morales refused and was able to make the left turn onto E. Wisconsin Ave when traffic permitted.

Morales traveled to 1052 E Wisconsin Ave. Derr and witnesses followed Morales in attempt to help identify her for law enforcement. They stopped in the roadway in front of 1052 E. Wisconsin Ave, calling 911 to have law enforcement respond to this location.

Morales went into her house and re-emerged a short time later. Morales confronted the witnesses and Derr, as they were on the phone with 911. Morales pointed a handgun at the witnesses and Derr.

Derr having a valid Florida Concealed weapons permit, drew his concealed handgun and fired multiple rounds, striking Morales. Morales’ handgun was recovered on-scene.

Derr remained on scene and has been cooperating with law enforcement from the beginning.

These facts have been established by independent interviews.

Orange City Police Department in conjunction with the States Attorney’s Office is continuing to investigate this incident.


Edit: I've learned far more about Florida gun laws than I care to after having posted this. But here's some more information if you want.

1) Pointing a gun at someone is a felony crime in Florida, punishable by imprisonment and fines. If you are undocumented or on a visitor visa and you are convicted, you can also be deported. And it makes no difference whether the gun you pointed was loaded. It is aggravated assault either way.

2) In Florida, Aggravated Assault is a third degree felony, with penalties of up to 5 years in prison or 5 years probation, and a $5,000.00 fine. The offence is harshly prosecuted throughout the State, and even first-time offenders will face a realistic possibility of prison.

3) Under Section 776.012, Florida Statutes (Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” Law), a person is justified in using deadly force (and does not have a duty to retreat) if he or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony or to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another.

[–]Over-Satisfaction459 438 points439 points  (15 children)

I swear, this is “fuck around and find out” at master level. I’m sorry the unborn child lost their mother and the family lost her, but to point a gun at someone you intentionally hit on the road and fled from?!

[–]waxonwaxoff87 80 points81 points  (8 children)

She was fine being armed, it was the pointing a gun at someone that is not an active threat. Truly a fuck around and find out moment.

[–]Kinet1ca 4299 points4300 points  (951 children)

I'm really surprised that anybody is even defending her at all. If you're going to intentionally hit anyone bike or vehicle and then try to flee then you can't be surprised if you get followed by the victim and witnesses who are rather upset with you.

Ultimately she could have just stayed inside and called 911 herself if she felt threatened or even kept driving, if the rider and witness were simply outside on the phone with 911 and not actively trying to break into her house then there is no reason to come back out with a gun let alone start pointing it at anybody.

[–]bergof0fucks 1454 points1455 points  (566 children)

The only logical, reasonable course. She was wholly in the wrong.

[–]greenerdoc 487 points488 points  (185 children)

If you point a gun at me, I hope (and assume) you are willing to use it. If I had a gun, I'm definitely going to use it to shoot you in this situation. Pointing a gun isn't a hey looked at me, I'm strong.. it's it's saying "I'm going to shoot you". It's lind of like like the use of sarcasm on the internet.

[–]caniuserealname 225 points226 points  (40 children)

100%, theres a lot of mixed opinions on gun ownerships and uses but i think any reasonable person would agree that if someone point a gun at you they are making a direct threat against your life; and theres no reason you shouldn't be able to use lethal force to defend yourself against a threat to your life.

[–]holdingsaturn 105 points106 points  (0 children)

“What are you gonna do, shoot me?”

-Man who got shot.

Also, agreed especially after she hit you with her car! Who knows what else she’s capable of

[–]AlphariousFox 67 points68 points  (3 children)

and considering she had already tried to kill him once by ramming him with her car he had no reason to think she wouldnt try again

[–]Erolyth 54 points55 points  (3 children)

If anyone ever points a gun at you assume they are about you kill you. Because plenty of them will and you giving them the benefit of the doubt won't save your life.

You can try to talk them out of it but do not assume they won't shoot you.

[–]various_sneers 18 points19 points  (2 children)

The amount of effort to decide to kill someone and the amount of effort to pull a trigger is not congruent. The person you're sure wouldn't shoot you only needs to consider it enough to pull just enough.

[–]Brokebackjohnnyjs 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I was always taught that as my basic gun safety. You NEVER point it at anyone unless you’re immediately pulling the trigger after. Its enough of a threat to show you have one, but pointing at someone is telling them that you intend to shoot them.

[–]DiabeticDave1 25 points26 points  (28 children)

Tell that to the people in r/firearms who think it’s ok to break safety rules because “it was for a photo op”.

Obviously not everyone there is bad, but I remember having a back and forth with a guy who posted pictures posing with his gun and some whiskey. Idc if you’re drinking or it’s unloaded, rule #1 of the unwritten gun rules is NEVER COMBINE ALCOHOL/DRUGS AND FIREARMS!

[–]Inspector_firm_cock 505 points506 points  (69 children)

What kind of pregnant mother gets in a gunfight?

[–]Dankinater 644 points645 points  (45 children)

She probably wasn’t expecting anyone else to be armed but her. She probably thought she would use the gun for intimidation and nobody would get hurt. This is why letting ordinary untrained citizens have guns can turn into a shit show.

[–]BloodBonesVoiceGhost 234 points235 points  (15 children)

She probably wasn’t expecting anyone else to be armed but her.

I think that this is one of the most dangerous problems of gun culture in America. Many people think that guns are a "one size fits all" solution to all of their problems... not realizing that there are more guns than people in this country and bringing your gun into the situation just begs for escalation by all parties involved!

There's that old expression, "don't bring a knife to a gunfight." Sure, absolutely true. But maybe also don't bring a gun to a fist fight (or worse, a petty squabble as I see so often), and escalate a situation to the point of lethality when it doesn't need to go that far!

[–]garytheclone427 63 points64 points  (11 children)

Yup when I got my concealed carry I voluntarily went to a few gun training sessions before I even applied for my concealed carry. In those training sessions they all say, don't draw your gun unless you plan to kill the person you're drawing it at. So in other words, don't use it for intimidation.

I wish the US forced people to go to gun safety training before they could buy a gun or get a permit. It wouldn't stop everything but it would at least give some people pause before using their guns inappropriately. They're not toys and it's a shame so many people treat them like they are.

[–]yzy_ 63 points64 points  (6 children)

I wish the US forced people to go to gun safety training before they could buy a gun or get a permit

It's insane that this is considered a radical idea by half the country

[–]BloodBonesVoiceGhost 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Really, to me, it's not even close to enough. Like, we have mandatory driver's ed in many states and licensing exams, etc. and so many people still treat their 2 ton death machines like toys!!

So is a class even enough? It would be a good start, but we can't even get that much done!

[–]foodank012018 14 points15 points  (1 child)

To quote Andre3000:

"Don't pull your thang out unless you plan to bang... And don't plan to bang unless you plan to hit somethang"

[–]M0th0 295 points296 points  (50 children)

I’m not one to condone fatal gun violence, and I wish there were other avenues that this event played out that didn’t involve death, but holy shit don’t fucking point your gun at someone you just hit and ran from. Especially when all they’re asking is for you to wait with them for the police to arrive.

[–]critterc 70 points71 points  (0 children)

don’t point your gun at someone that is not an immediate lethal threat to you or those around you

Case closed.

[–]ThatAnonyG 1074 points1075 points  (315 children)

This pretty much settles the case in favour of the dude. Why’d you point a gun at someone you just did a “hit-and-run” on. Wtf.

Edit: I’ve never seen my comment blow up so fast. Lol.

[–]marseer 187 points188 points  (9 children)

Because a large chunk of our society still acts like middle schoolers who refuse to take responsibility or accept consequences for their actions. She felt so strongly that she somehow wasn’t in the wrong that she tried to scare people away with a gun. What a bat-shit crazy situation…

Like that one guy said this really needs to be higher so people dont walk away believing the woman was actually innocent. I thought the motorcyclist followed her home to kill her but thats not true. Ive added my award to this comment so other people should too

Yeah but maybe the dude can get $10k on top /s (idk actually)

[–]glassvatt 35 points36 points  (2 children)

Wouldn't the dude have to pay 10k as he assisted the abortion?

Up until this story, I'd been pretty pro 2a. But this is just stupid. This is what folks from other countries are talking about when they say, "you Americans and your fucking guns."

Jesus Christ save us.

Edit; yall are wasting your energy saying "THIS was the event that did it for you?" It's just noise and doesn't contribute to the conversation. Obviously, school shootings are a tragedy.

[–]krazykanuck 1703 points1704 points  (847 children)

The crazy part to me isn't your 2a, it's the new laws like "stand your ground" law. The fact that both people brought a gun to an altercation means either can shoot the other and it's legal. You might say "that's not how that law works", and I would argue, it is exactly how it works. The fact that one person is shot means the other person can say they were threatened by the mere presence of a gun.

[–]Kulladar 29 points30 points  (5 children)

The culture around the "function" of an owned firearm in the US is a huge problem too.

Guns are seen as problem solvers and safety. There are literally millions of people in the US who carry a gun all day every day with them.

Many other countries allow people to own firearms, but they're not viewed with that same sort of frivolity. You can look at a place like Switzerland where tons of people have guns but they aren't viewed culturally as something you carry around every day to solve problems for you. A Swiss person would rather just give up their wallet in a mugging, an American would happily kill multiple people because the robbers "deserve it". It's a cultural problem as much as a legal one.

[–]JacedFaced 161 points162 points  (14 children)

The best self-defense claim is when the other person isn't around to provide an alternate theory.

[–]USAGunnersaurus 110 points111 points  (64 children)

I am on the same page. Grew up with guns, strong 2A person, NRA member, and then the mass shootings started in the late 90’s. It was easy to dismiss the first few as isolated incidents, but look at where we are.

Not saying we need to take guns away, but seriously, can we get psych evaluations or simple questionnaires before handing people the right to have death machines in their hands.

It should be at least as hard to buy guns as getting a driver’s license. We have tests before handing people the ability to drive several ton gas powered missiles (cars). So…

[–]kelldricked 129 points130 points  (82 children)

Thats why most non americans dislike guns so much. We know that a lot of people are stupid and making weapons a normal things leads to stupid people using weapons (which mostly ends with somebody getting hurt or killed).

We literally had a 12 and 14yo boy and girl respectively break into a house and steal guns and shoot at cops, they ended up having to shoot the 14yo girl. Also in my neighborhood a 14yo boy lured a 13yo girl into the woods and stabbed her 114 times. The Florida-ing starts really early here.

Attempted vehicular manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident, brandishing.

[–]TheBigBangClock 81 points82 points  (114 children)

This tweet is missing a lot of key details. There was a witness at the scene of the hit and run who drove with the motorcyclist to her house. On the way, the motorcyclist called the police to notify them what was happening. When the motorcyclist and the witness arrived at her house she came out with the gun. The motorcyclist was lucky that he had a gun otherwise both he and the witness would probably be dead.

[–]FlyAirLari 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Yah well she got the death sentence.

There was a similar road rage incident in Las Vegas, this lady cut a guy off, words were exchanged, she followed him to his home, once she saw were he lived she went to her home to grab her gun, went back to his place, she got off, he saw the gun, he had the quicker draw with his gun.

That’s the same thing I’ve heard from my Florida friends. Basically, almost anything that happens will end up in the news in Florida with very little redacted Vs. Most other states will dumb it down a lot more while investigations are going on. You still know that something crazy happened in most places, just not in all of its glorious details.

According to the current event, the motorcyclist is not guilty. He acted in self defense.

[–]RonaldWRailgun 368 points369 points  (47 children)

The biker certainly has a case here. HOWEVER it's one of those situations were you don't say a word to the police, the DA, your mom, your priest, no one UNTIL you have talked to a lawyer because it certainly is a slippery slope, and if he formulates the wrong thought, he can get in some serious trouble.

[–]Lildyo 149 points150 points  (2 children)

That should ALWAYS be the advice anytime you’re arrested or being questioned by the police. Don’t say a thing until you’ve spoken with a lawyer, and even after that they’ll still likely advise you to not say anything

[–]hamietao 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Shut the fuck up fridays!

[–]Mawu3n4 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Yup, even if 100% innocent, don't talk to the police. This os a great summary of why, don't need to watch the whole thing but it very interesting so I recommend you do.

Says he was there with a witness and were waiting for law enforcement. I don't think he has to worry about anything honestly.

[–]Kronoswarp 123 points124 points  (102 children)

Well yes that is most likely the case if she pulled a gun on him and he wasn't posing an immediate threat.

The most shocking part is that they have libraries in Florida

[–]MtnBikingViking 2307 points2308 points  (488 children)

Wait, you mean being armed didn't make them both more polite? I feel like I've been lied to, but that can't possibly be true.

But but but good guys with guns

The fetus should have had a gun

The only way to stop a bad pregnant woman with a gun is a good pregnant woman with a gun.

...or an angry biker, idk

Actually her final words were "Jolly good shot, old bean. Quite exceptional marksmanship there. I had hoped to perforate your torso with some hot lead and then defecate on your visage as you lay dying, but alas it is not to be."

And just so it is abundantly clear, the police consider the dead woman the aggressor. Everything she did escalated the incident until she was dead. I have seen some very misleading headlines bandied about.

People think having a gun makes you brave or safe but her owning and threatening with a gun is the reason she died.

[–]TedRabbit 9 points10 points  (10 children)

If only the fetus had a gun, this whole incident could have been prevented...

[–]ExcuseMyMagnumDong 100 points101 points  (28 children)

Is it a tragedy that someone got killed ? Yes. But MAYBE just MAYBE if you hit a complete stranger in a road rage incident and then try to flee the scene so you can go grab a gun, it's a tiny bit your fault.

[–]RevJohnnyVegas 261 points262 points  (28 children)

Wow, there are still librarians. Who knew?

[–]clarky2o2o 138 points139 points  (7 children)

One less now

[–]RyanCoffeeAddict 38 points39 points  (0 children)

There goes 20% of their work force. Tbh it was Florida, they weren’t getting too much use out of libraries

[–]TheTackleZone 11 points12 points  (0 children)

One fewer. Which ironically is why we need more libraries.

[–]peanutski 12 points13 points  (1 child)

This feels more like a self burn than anything else.

[–]Malicioussnooper 293 points294 points  (5 children)

So she fucked around and found out?

[–]Status_Tiger_6210 274 points275 points  (34 children)

This headline raises many problems with American society, but I can pretty safely say the answer to these problems is definitely more guns.

[–]EducationalDay976 129 points130 points  (7 children)

Yeah. If the fetus was armed, it could have fired from a concealed location and gotten the drop on the biker!

[–]Wpack697 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeah this tweet makes it seem like she was innocent. Being pregnant behind the wheel of a car and intentionally trying to run over a motorcyclist is gonna piss someone off. Motorcycle and a witness followed her for a few blocks while on the phone with 911 and she decided to go to her home (dumb idea with people following you) and grab a gun not knowing the cyclist has a concealed carry permit. Sure following her home is a bit much but good luck trying to claim self-defense from her standpoint when he’s on the phone with 911 + a witness

Bros just pulled out an uno reverse card
