Florida man upset that utility trucks are parked near his lawn, starts shooting.

Courtesy of the Miami Herald: 

He didn't like the AT&T work trucks in front of his Hialeah home, so Jorge Jove retrieved his revolver and began shooting out the tires and the engine, police said. 

Cell phone video rolled as Jove, 64, calmly walked around the first truck and shot at all four tires. The sound of the air coming out of the tires followed the blast. 

Jove then walked to the second bucket truck and began shooting at the front of it, reloading the gun several times. Meanwhile, one of the AT&T workers could be heard calling police to report the shooting. 

“He's shooting the truck right now,” said a man who identified himself as Derrick Taylor, a technician with AT&T. “There's a guy shooting the tires and shooting the engines and everything.” 

As Taylor spoke to the dispatcher, Jove continued his attack on the trucks.

At the end of the Miami Herald article it says "charges are pending."

But let's face it he is a white guy in Florida exercising his 2nd Amendment right to protect his lawn from utility trucks.

He probably won't get more than a slap on the wrist.

Actually probably get a commendation for protecting the neighborhood from those AT&T bastards.

    Well Obviously he was just "standing his ground" like the florida law says.

    OT?"Hannity was set to receive the William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence this week from the right-wing Media Research Center — before, that is, William F. Buckley’s son personally intervened to stop it."

    2. And here I thought all right wing nutjobs had no integrity.

      I guess there is a point low enough to which even they will not stoop.

      To paraphrase an old lawyer joke:

      "What's the difference between a Republican and a rat?"

      "There are some things rats won't do."

    Your headline did not need to include "florida". The rest of the headline would have been sufficient to figure out where he was from. And good luck to him when AT&T takes him to court for shooting up the trucks. First, any liability insurance he has is moot since it as a deliberate act. Second, if he walks away with minimal charges, well it's Florida, we should not be surprised. But what about ricochet, or bullets that pass through the ties or vehicle. They should file everything they are able to against him

      It wasn't just the damage to the trucks that he is now responsible for. There was a worker up in the bucket in one of the trucks he was shooting at.

      According to the local news reports, he's been charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and felony vandalism.

      I imagine AT&T will be inclined to push for the most serious charges possible when their employee's life was threatened.

    2. He might escape criminal repercussions for his actions but AT&T will take him to civil court and he'll have to pay for repairs to both of those trucks. 8 truck tires and who knows what work on two engines?

      Open that wallet and suck it up, buttercup. No escaping your consequences.

    When the cops drove up, I'm betting they gave this guy a LOOONNG time to put down the gun, and were nice to him, seeing how he's just a white male evangelical "Christian"

    Had that been a Muslim or a black guy, they would have shot first and asked questions later

    Officials released what is called an “extremely disturbing” video, that shows the teens cursing and laughing at a 32-year-old disabled man drowning in a fenced-off pond, Florida Today reports.

    Get out the water, you gonna die” one teen can be heard shouting. Another yelled to the man “ain’t nobody fixing to help you, you dumb (expletive).”
    As the man kept screaming for help the teens did not call police, and he eventually submerged under the murky water for the last time.

    “Oh, he just died,” a teen said while laughing.

  9. He's Hispanic, which might be a no-questions-asked deportation situation anywhere else in the USA, but in south Florida, OF COURSE he's considered white! He's not dark enough to be Trayvon Martin.
