    Birmingham shooting - ruled self defense.

    Deadly Birmingham shooting ruled self-defense

    A shooting that left a man dead in northeast Birmingham on Sunday has been ruled a case of self-defense.

    Police say Demetrius Thompson, a 43-year-old from Birmingham, was shot to death in the 9000 block of 14th Avenue North just before 10 a.m. Jan.
    Staring down a gun and able to pull the trigger yourself enough to put the aggressor down . . . says something about his nerves. I also like the report - no bias what so ever. Just straight up, here's the story.

    The article's lean on details too. I did a search and found nothing else on it pertaining to what went down. Oh well, it was judged a good shoot and the GJ had the facts so good job to the victim on NOT becoming a dead victim.

    Lots of information missing from that article. I've seen more details in stories about the Elk's Club Pancake Breakfast.

    Robbery? Drug deal gone bad? Personal insults escalating to a gun fight?

    This kind of "reporting" is frustrating for the reader.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Maybe the police figure the victim deserved shooting, and to let it go at that.

    As we say around here, "He needed killing".
