It’s just parking, people!

Look, I know most people revert back to the pre-historic lizard parts of their brain the moment someone says “SALE!” or “Black Friday” anywhere near them, but this is ridiculous. As the title of the blog says, it’s just parking! A parking spot is never, ever worth committing a felony or getting violent over. I am not a legal expert, but I can still guarantee you that ANY parking violation or ticket is less costly than a felony and is generally not going to get you jail time. My first instinct is to end this post with a “Let this be a lesson to you . . .” type of message, but frankly if you feel that you need to be ARMED when you go to WalMart then you’re probably not much into blogs and even if you were, you’ve got issues well beyond anything that can be solved by reading a paragraph online.

Shooting over Wal-Mart parking spot leads to attempted murder charges

The AJC. Credible. Compelling. Complete.

Two suspects face attempted murder charges after a shooting over a Wal-Mart parking space in Tallahassee.

Police say a disagreement over the parking space led to the shooting outside the store on Black Friday.

Earl White III and Tiffany Yancey face charges of attempted robbery with a firearm, attempted murder and possession of firearm by a convicted felon in connection with the store shooting.

Police said Yancey pointed a gun at a female, demanding “everything in your purse.” Police say White then shot the woman and a male passenger outside the store. According to a report in the Tallahassee Democrat, the two victims received non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

The suspects fled, but were soon spotted south of Cairo, Ga. on Highway 111. Police pursued the suspects in a chase that reached speeds of 90 miles per hour. Police used spike strips, to slow the vehicle and sent it crashing into a guard rail, according to the Democrat.

The couple will be charged after being extradited to Florida, according to police.
