    **News Story**
    Guy hears someone breaking into his car and go outs and finds a guy doing this. He confronts the guy and he (criminal) rushes at him.. owner of the car fires and shoots the guy, while on the ground the guy who shot him is taunting him saying I bet that hurt you little bitch and shoots him a couple more times eventually killing him.
    Police question him and as of the 6 oclock new the guy was back home.. no charges filed

    Another scumbag off the street. :Ownedd:

    That's not defense, that's murder.

    in TX its legal to use lethal force to prevent the theft of your property. When the guy charged him it was also self defense.

    When he charged him, theft of his property was no longer a threat. It switched to a threat of loss of life. He shot the suspect, and disabled the threat to his life. The instant the suspect was on the ground and no longer a threat, any following shots resulting in death is murder.

    If the shooter was a real man, the suspect would've been dead before he hit the ground. :mamoru:

    That's making sure the threat is no longer a threat. :bigthumb:

    I'd probably shoot someone for breaking into my car also.. But if they were down i'd just hold them at gun point till police come.. Because the stupid bastard would already know i'd shoot him agian. :rofl:

    It's neutralizing a threat.
    It's also doing society a favor.
    It's also saving the people tax dollars in prosecuting and imprisoning the perp.
    It's amazing what $1's worth of bullets can do in the name of personal defense!

    Right. And then get sued for millions because they are disabled, etc, etc....

    We need to dump CA off into the ocean. Relocate JPL (only good thing over there) and dump the bitch.

    WHY DO YOU FUCKING DEFEND CRIMINALS????

    I didn't realize owning a firearm gave you the right to become judge, jury, and executioner :coolugh:

    What a clueless fuckstick.

    You do realize that BOTH men in this circumstance are criminals by definition of the law, right?

    Any one of you that defends this situation as an actual justifiable homicide doesn't deserve to own a firearm.

    obviously not if he went home with no charges filed.

    what do thieves contribute to society? Why do we need him? Why waste the money going to court, etc? Who knows, maybe he was going to go down the street and rape/murder some old lady after he was done with the car? No one knows. If you can't make an honest living, why do we need you here?

    Our country has become too pussy lately. "Boohoo, the electric chair is inhumane, wahhh the firing squad is terrible. That burglar who broke into the house and hurt himself should be able to sue the owners" Here's news for ya, killing people with axes and bombs is terrible too, why should those guilty of these crimes get a swift death? Who gives a shit, let them suffer.

    I see it as getting a criminal off the streets and keeping a free spot in the jails.

    Maybe in your opinion, but apparently down there it was justified since he is home with no charges and the bad guy is in the morgue. (course we don't know the full story from just that little snippet).

    Wrong. In order to plead self defense you have to use "equal" force or no more force than is required to stop the attack. So if someone is punching you, you can't shoot them, etc.

    However, I'm on the guy's side.. some fucker tries to steal my shit, he's going down.

    that is very incorrect in most states.

    justifiable homicide is the use of lethal force when a victim faces death or severe bodily injury. dot. period. the end. doesnt matter the weapon or mode of assault used as long as the defending victim commiting "homicide" can justify their actions based on fear of death or severe bodily injury.

    and this is the law in a liberal "blue" state like Washington.

    Right. Obviously based on the professional quality of the "article" on this incident, it actually happened exactly like it said. A guy actually did that, then told cops he did that and no files were charged. Makes PERFECT sense to me. :slap:

    wound the guy so that when he recovers he can sue you and let the criminals steal more. I would of done the same thing... maybe less the taunting and would of just used one shot

    As the sign in my friends house says... My 1911 is more effective than your 911

    He disabled the thread without killing the man, anything past that is excessive force and should be considered murder. (but that's already been stated 10 times :o )
