Justice for Joel Abbotts Civil Rights
Organized by: Jeffery Abbott
Our Youngest Son Joel with his Girlfriend were leaving Wal-Mart one night in January heading to one of his best Friends also his Girlfriends sisters house to make wedding decorations for her sisters wedding when a 42 yo black male started following close behind them shining a green Laser light into the cab of the truck that belonged to Joel's GF and blinding them by the rear view mirror, they were terrified for there life thinking a gun was aimed at them and they sped up to get away,911 was called to inform them what was going on and when they arrived at her sisters 911 asked for a discription of the vehicle, Joel thought that he still saw the vehicle down the street cause he saw headlights and went to get a discription and started walking down the road, Joel is a licensed concealed carrier with no Criminal record whatsoever and when he got to the crest of the road he didn't see anything so he turned around heading back to his friends house and out of nowhere the man drove up behind him and jumped out with a pistol pointed at Joel's face screaming if he had a F---ing problem and told him to raise his hands and wanted to see Joel's piece, Joel had his own pistol behind in the small of his back under his shirt, Joel said no so the 42 yo black male then starting shooting at Joel hitting him 4 times and Joel returned fire but Joel was hit in his elbow and severed the artery in his left arm and in the stomach and somehow in the back and out the front, Joel shattered the mans shooting wrist and both men hit the ground, Joel's friend came up behind him and Joel told him my guns jammed and Joel started heading back to the house bleeding profusely loosing a lot of blood while Josh picked up Joel's gun and bumped the mag and he saw the guy walking and turning around raising his arm and Josh fired and killed him! Because he feared for his life, needless to say the Black man was a convicted felon from shooting into a occupied vehicle before which went from attempted murder pleaded down to aggravated assault, he shouldnt of had a gun in the first place ,plus this man was Drunk with a .15 alcohol content this nite, this was clearly Self Defense! But my Son and friend has been charged with Murder when this man started everything-,fired and hit Joel 4 times and he has permanent partial use of his left arm with no feeling in his fingers! Both Joel and Josh were Correction Officers with no Criminal background and these Boys are in Jail for there lives! Where's the Justice!
