    So a poll over on ar15.com thought it was interesting and wanted to see what WMD would do in the situation.

    Situation: Your sleeping, burgler enters your home you wake and catch him in the act, he has a weapon or some object in his hand you shoot him incapacitating but not killing him. Would you render first aid?

    i'd probably throw him a sheet or something with which to make his own tourniquet.

    i'm not obligated to help him, but i'm human.

    The only thing I could do is put pressure on the wounds, but he can manage that so I dont think I would render any aid, especially since it might complicate things and possibly open me up to more legal problems if he died as a result of my trying to help. However I would tell 911 that I've shot him but he is not dead so that they will send the paramedics.

    If by 'first aid' you mean a mercy kill, then yes.

    I would definately take pics for OT, but would also let him bleed to death, the whole time, making fun of him because hes going to die, and if he tries to get away he will die sooner.

    In the heat of the moment your shots may not be 100% on to cause immediate death.
    If the guys still concious I wouldn't put myself in a position where he could possibly become a threat again, and even if he's unconcsious I dont really want some strangers blood on me who knows what diseases he may have. I might givem a towel to put presure on the wounds untill ems arrives and so I can check out my grouping :mamoru:

    I'm not a trained paramedic, I don't have the slightest clue how to treat a central mass gunshot wound. I don't know that he won't bludegon me to death when I set down my gun and get to his level. I won't have any protective gear to keep me safe from blood carried disease. I don't know his buddy isn't going to bust in the house and attack me. While I would like to think its possible you could be a compassionate person I don't see any way to do it without risking your own safety greatly. Theres a reason why people the police shoot wind up in handcuffs before they get first aid.

    I'd give him some bandages or a towel or somthing but I wouldn't go way out of my way for him. If he dies in your house its a crime scene and now you have cops everywhere and you need to find a new place to stay while they investigate.

    I'd probably go so far as to throw him something for a tourniquet (or however you spell them), but there's no way I would get near him or take my eyes off of him any other place that a friend could be hiding or enter from.

    I put "no" even though I would MAYBE give him a tiny bit of aid if everything happened just right because I'd be a lot more likely to just keep him covered until the EMTs showed up.
