there is rarely a decent excuse to pull out a gun. We just dont have all the facts. Yes it looks guilty and I think he is but that is my specutlation BUT, I will always try to wait until all the facts come out to form and opinion. There is too much emotion and too little information right now for me to do that. Many policeman and citizens have had to use self defense to protect themselves. The court of public opinion will portray it as murder only to find out later there was more to the story. It often leads to people jumping to conclusions which starts riots that ultimately cause more violence.

Self-Defense when Will was shot in the back, something like 5 times? Sitting in the drivers seat might I add...

That's the part I can't get out of my head... all the conspiracies and two gun theories be damned. Shot in the back 5 times.... Self defense? Really??

The thing that gets to me, it was reported he didn't know Smith... Just shot him through the window without seeing his face or what?!

Even then, call the police and your insurance company, don't chase the hit & runner down and shoot him...

Still claiming self-defense

I don't think it was self defense. Hayes actually went back to his car to get the gun. That right there throws out self defense. If the threat had calmed to the point he was able to go back to his car then he could have either stayed there or fled for his life.

That's BS from what I understand the were both drafted by the Saints the same year and Smith was good friends with the man who shot and killed Hayes father in self defense. At the very least Hayes knew Smith. I think there was more to it than simply road rage
