the victim got his ass beat by some other guy and when he(the victim) was crawling back to his car McClain came up to him with a gun
I know. Who knows why that dude got beat. Maybe he was mouthing off and obviously McClain snapped at the end but considering the context of his grandfather dying, who knows what his mental state was.
Both my Grandfathers are dead, one of which I was very close to, and the thought of putting a gun to another persons head never entered my mind.

Putting a gun to someone head and making them fear for their life, and only removing the gun after that person begged is not what I would categorize as a "Simple mistake".
It's a big friggen deal and hopefully the NFL will see it that was as well since redneck law obviously doesn't value human life.
Depends on how you grew up. Dog fighting "normal" in some regions. You may not have done it but who knows how some perceive guns and pointing them at people.
lol i thought the same thing. Pointing a gun at another mans head has been f**ked up and not "normal" anywhere you go since guns were invented. Before that it was pointing a knife at someones. Before that it was pointing their arrow at someone. Before that it was spears. Before that it was spears. Before that it was fists and legs. Before that it was teeth.
Either way its never "normal" to do this, especially in 2011.
