I have no clue what really happened but your assumption that being shot in the back makes it "pretty clear" he was outside his vehicle is weak.

If I was in the car (in the drivers seat) and someone is outside my window with a gun, I would shield my wife, if there was no option to disarm the shooter (proximity to the weapon).

This is not to say that the above situation applies to Smith but rather to illustrate what occasionally happens when you ASSuME anything. Topping it of with saying it is "pretty clear" is not a good way to win friends and influence readers; particularly when a legendary Buckeye is murdered in a cowardly way.

You argued that the statements you quoted were political above and said we should know better. You also wrote that this thread should remain about Will Smith. Then you made arguments that continued the same discussion. At least that is how it reads. If I am wrong apologies. Just seeking consistency.

Could not agree more. This guy was a ticking bomb and the courts enabled him to get to this.  All this talk of gun control and no discussions on punishment of those that commit crimes with illegal weapons. Note: the point of this is not to argue gun control, it is rather to express disappointment in the failure of our court system in punishing offenders so that senseless tragedies like this can be avoided.

This news is absolutely heart breaking and prayers sent for families and friends of Mr. Smith.

Agree. I lost a good job due to downsizing. There were documented success and positive evaluations over a six year period. It was cost savings. Now it is difficult to me to see failure go unrecognized; particularly at the level of tOSU.
