I knew Hank the man killed, I feel from the story he did not deserve to die. The hank I knew had no mean bone in him. Where were the other drivers I would like to know what this man told Hank to get him this upset. What in the world happened to a man on man fight with your fist most of the time you get up and shake hands or one of the men learn a lesson. But the Hank I knew was not the type who had any anger who needed to be shot by a man who does not no how to fight fair, anypne can shoot someone be a man and use your fist .

I also knew Hank, and he has alot of anger issues, I dont know how you know him, but it could only have been a couple hours. Hank has had several incidents of the same nature, his police record will illustrate the same. So please tell the truth others close to him read these posts. He wasnt a bad guy, but hes far from a nice guy and a hero.

I grew up with Hank and watched him fight on MANY occasions from elementary school to bar fights. He absolutely was always looking for a fight! I haven't seen him in many years because of the lifestyle he led at that time. That being said. He was also a great friend at one time. He had a very hard life and very bad influences that I have seen first hand! He absolutely did not deserve to die!! I was not there but I beleive simply stepping on the gas and driving away would have been a much better choice then taking a mans life!!!!! Hank didn't have a weapon and this guy was in his drivers seat! Please tell me how this guys life was threatened!? He was being punched in the face through a car window! Maybe carry some mace next to your .357 in the center console! A little spray then drive away and call the police. It wasn't like he was on the ground being beaten to death or anything. I beleive this guy is an ex marine who should know how to handle himself better!

It is easy to look at things in ideal situation. If he sped away it is hit and run. This guy picked on wrong motorist. He was continuously punching driver. The head is very fragile. First reaction is to use deadly force. Bicyclist had a temper tantrum.deadly force by man was authorized.

Fist are weapons too dummy,Hank could've killed the driver, or hit him hard enough to cause brain damage. What ever happened to keeping you damn hands to your self? Idiots believe that have a right to harm others with their fist. You cross that line, there are no rules.

Roll up the window? Drive down the road a little ways and call the police? Get out of the car and run away? Fight like a man instead of a little bitch? No one should be allowed to carry a gun or have a gun in their car unless they are a police officer or process server or something like that. This whole wild west mentality is insane. I need a gun because the other person has one? Anyone who feels the need to carry has a definite lack of self confidence, self esteem, sense. Everyone that i know that carries is a little off mentally. Grow up? Stop living in fear! It's chicken shit. Watch the news! Taylor, West Bloomfield, Garden City and on and on. Take them all away. Our gun laws,or lack thereof, are ridiculous. Look at Canada or some other civilized country. Hunting rifles okay. Auto and semi auto? No. No AK-47 or M-14 type stuff. One hand gun per household. It will never happen. It's a huge business backed by the NRA and huge lobby's. A lot of people hiding behind a two hundred year old, outdated amendment.

To have permit this guy had to have good record.in ideal situation your scenario is good? There r never ideal scenarios.This bicyclist should have been thankful to survive accident.He looked for violence and man defended himself.Motorist used proper procedures. Period.he finally started altercation with wrong citizen and paid dearly.
