“Justice System” failure, or is that ‘feature’?. hrmmmm.
27 years old with a rap sheet of several violent felonies and still on the street means the Justice System Revolving Door™ seems to work just fine. It’s apparent Marvon felt-with a certain justification -that he could get away with whatever he wanted, with minimal consequences, until he finally ran into people who wouldn’t put up with his crap and they took care of business. Permanently. As In Dead Right There.

One killed in Hermitage shooting; suspect claiming self defense

HERMITAGE, Tenn. (WTVF) — One person was killed in a shooting in Hermitage Friday night. Metro police are investigating a claim of self defense in the shooting.

Metro Nashville Police officials say it happened at 4331 Old Hickory Boulevard around 9:20 p.m. in the parking lot of Urban Air.

When officers arrived at the scene, David Starnes Jr., 23, was there. He admitted to shooting the victim, 20-year-old Timothy Wilks.

Detectives were told Wilks and a friend were taking part in a prank robbery as part of a YouTube video and approached a group of people – including Starnes – with butcher knives.

Starnes told detectives he was unaware of the prank and shot Wilks in defense of himself and the others in the group.

No charges have been placed at this time. The investigation is ongoing.

‘Accident’ my eye. The only way that happened is the homeowner was hanging on the top of that window watching him turn blue. Much cleaner than a 00 buck or 5.56 .
