    So, what's the point of the comments about having a gun pointed at you?

    I really think anyone who gets so cranked up over someone peeing is nutso anyhow.

    •  He was nutso, I agree (0+ / 0-)

      the point is that if you meet someone nutso -- with a gun, knife, baseball bat, whatever ... it is prudent to leave and avoid confrontation.  Even if you have a gun, pissing on a sandbar is no reason to shoot someone -- it is prudent to leave.  Many of these cases where a nut job shoots someone also involves someone without the commons sense to de-escalate and leave ... does not make shooting them right, it makes them kind of nutso as well.  If I see someone with a gun protecting his sandbar I'm leaving.  Even though I normally carry a gun for self defense (and have a permit to do so).

        of the cousins is lurking in my mind. Pissing is a clue. Picking up rock(s) to defend against a gun waving idiot adds to my suspicions Getting back into the boat would be normal behavior. Another clue. But wait... It is all speculation. That's right, we, none of us, have a clue about what really took place there. None of us were there. None of us have seen a video of it.  None of us will be called for this jury.

        Speculation is accusation.

        Don't do it.
