If someone threatens (to kill) you with a gun, don’t encourage them. We saw that in the Duel at the Dumbster also.
“Lisa Goy at one point returns to her shoveling, but stops again to call Spaide ‘scum’ in the seconds before he returns with a handgun.
‘Go ahead,’ she urges her armed neighbor. ‘Go ahead.’
The group continues to shout until Spaide opens fire on the couple, striking them both several times.”
You CANNOT fix stupid.
Didn’t Richard Pryor have a riff on this like 40 something years ago? If you are going to encourage someone who is angry and has a gun to shoot you, should you be surprised when you get shot?
