“Castle Killing” The Gun Pics …

ALLEN STEPHENSON LIKES HIS FIREARMS … 

To be clear: We don’t know exactly what went down outside the $2 million German castle located at 229 Altamont Road (near Greenville, S.C.) on Saturday.

All we know is that one person – a 32-year-old man by the name of Matthew Whitman – wound up getting shot and killed at the 30-acre estate owned by wealthy apparel magnate Allen Stephenson.

We also know that Stephenson pulled the trigger of the shotgun that killed Whitman … ostensibly in response to an attempted knife attack by Whitman, someone Stephenson claims he did not know prior to the alleged assault.

If this version of events – related by Stephenson’s attorney – is true, then police ought to immediately absolve the wealthy businessman of any wrongdoing and let him go on his merry way (i.e. continuing to make big sweet dollars off of selling clothing to frat boys and sorority girls).

But Stephenson’s close proximity to prosecutors in the Greenville area – most notably S.C. Senate candidate William Timmons – has some questioning whether he is receiving special treatment in the case.

For example … why was his name not immediately released by authorities in the aftermath of the shooting? 

Opponents of self-defense laws are also looking very closely at the case to see if there is any way they can use it to weaken South Carolina’s “Stand Your Ground” laws – as well as its “Castle Doctrine” protections.

“Stand Your Ground” laws outline the circumstances in which individuals can use deadly force in the face of an oncoming attacker.  The “Castle Doctrine” – which would appear to apply literally in this case – allows for homeowners to use deadly force in the event they feel threatened on their own property.

Anyway, gun rights opponents will no doubt be emboldened by pre-shooting images of Stephenson (far right) and his buddies showing off their various weaponry …

(Click to enlarge)

Ummmm … welcome to the “gun show,” right?

Obviously gun rights are under attack in South Carolina at the moment … which is bad.  Fortunately, it appears as though efforts to weaken second amendment protections are not gaining any traction legislatively.

Which is good …

This website has consistently embraced gun rights – going so far as to recommend civil disobedience of any law that runs counter to the second amendment.  Aside from the obvious constitutional rationale, there’s a practical equation at work here: More guns = less crime.

Gun ownership is a right … and an important safeguard of life, liberty and property.

If the Allen Stephenson case went down the way his lawyer said it did, then it should be a compelling affirmation of this principle … as well as the necessity of “Stand Your Ground” laws.

Let’s hope that’s what happened …

Fecal Matters March 23, 2016 at 4:26 pm

If you’re only watching the 11 o’clock news in your market, you’re missing 209 other television markets. You couldn’t possibly be getting the entire story, slapdick.

Hey, Shit For Brains March 23, 2016 at 4:35 pm

209 channels, most of which air programming that somehow manages to be worse than the infomercials that play at 3 in the morning. Wow, I’m sure missing out on that.

I get my news from a variety of sources, the least of which is TV, but TV news is enough to point to in order to illustrate the point of the south being the drunk, stupid, gun-slinging red-headed stepchild of the US.

Fecal Matters March 23, 2016 at 4:38 pm

I’m not talking about channels, shit for brains. A television market is different than a channel. There are 210 television markets across the country. You’re the one that started yammering on about how you see it on the 11 o’clock news, not me. You seem like either a child, mentally handicapped or just plain ignorant. Possibly a combination of all three.

Stupid Is As Stupid Does March 23, 2016 at 4:57 pm

I recall someone saying something about sophomoric insults being for the intellectually bankrupt, but you deleted that comment before I could reply.

209 markets, 209 channels, who gives a shit. Television sucks. You need to find better ways of entertainment. Read a book. Go outside. Get a hobby.

If you’re so deeply concerned about giving all 210 “markets” a fair shake then you sound more like an inbred couch potato glued to the boob tube, which doesn’t help your argument that the south isn’t stupid.

I just came up with a name for Stephenson’s house:

“Castle Douchebag”

what about the coroner saying that Whitman died from “multiple shots”

According to a woman who Whitman had a thing for, he was shot 3 times. She posted that info on one of news station’s comments section. Same woman who lives in Mauritius and Whitman was telling that he loved and missed her.

And The Greenville News reported:
The autopsy showed that “multiple” shots had been fired, but the coroner said he couldn’t say how many or where the wounds were while the investigation is ongoing. Toxicology tests were done but the results are not complete, he said.

Would they do toxicology tests on Stephenson too? The cops sure seem to be tight lipped about any details 5 days after the fact.

wyff4 updated –

When WYFF News 4’s Corey Davis asked for more information, Douglas said that per the sheriff, everything is on hold and no more information will be released as investigators work.

Douglas did say a decision on a possible charge will be made “sooner than later.”

WYFF News 4 has requested the incident report and 911 calls from the under the Freedom of Information Act.

WYFF News 4 also contacted Whitman’s family members. They said they are not ready to talk about the shooting, but they have a lot of questions about what happened.

Just a point of curiosity; are they holding real guns or perhaps air-soft or similar devices? Whatever photo posting format Fits is now using, I can’t get it to work and view larger versions of the pics.

Air-soft guns, paint ball guns and other fake guns have an orange tip on the end. But they are easily removable.

I have that but it doesn’t work on the crappy pics they are using on here, now.

@FITS – the phrase “Making big sweet dollars selling clothing to frat boys and sorority girls” makes is sound like Mr. Stephenson was not making an honest living.

It’s honest in that the people are willingly buying his clothes. Sewing together pieces of fabric is something children in sweatshops on the other side of the world do, though. He’s providing a price-inflated product to gullible idiots through the magic of trendy hipster consumerism.

Perhaps he can be credited with his legal exploitation of the mentally handicapped who think boat shoes are the pinnacle of fashion, but his contributions towards the advancement of mankind aren’t much higher than that of the janitor who cleans his shitter.

Having purchased many items of this clothing brand over the years, I can tell you that the fabric, design, workmanship and even the thread is superior to cheaper brands.

The one on the left is checking his ear bud to make sure he has picked up the correct orders from Command Central

Yes, he says to the one on his left, it is a go, I repeat it is a go, you have the green light to take out the Toad on the rock

Am I only the only dumbass who is no longer able to click on the pics Will inserts in the stories? Nothing but black screens come up, and half the time it locks up my Chrome. I have to right click and open them in a new window every time, which is OK but slightly annoying…

Why are you choosing to keep running a story that no else is picking up, is it because he is a successful young entrepreneur whose clothing company caters to frat bros? You have one serious bone to pick with greek life. #hatemuch?

STATEMENT BY THE FAMILY OF MATTHEW WHITMAN
Matt Whitman was a brilliant, loving, kind and gentle son, brother and uncle, and our family is heartbroken by our loss of him. While we do not know why Matt was on that property on Saturday, he did not have a criminal record and we have never observed him being violent or threatening to any person. We therefore trust and expect that law enforcement will thoroughly investigate the circumstances that led to Matt’s death at the hands of another person. We ask that the public respect our family’s privacy during this time of tremendous grief, and that members of the press refrain from contacting us. We will have no further comment at this time.
