    Craigslist thief tries to steal from wrong guy

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/d...st-ad-36489235

    Sheriff's spokeswoman Jacki Kelley says one of the suspects stole the man's car. Kelley says the homeowner grabbed a gun and opened fire, hitting and killing the suspect.


    That's a too-bad.

    Of course it was lawful ... he pulled the trigger, hammer came down, primer ignited main power charge, main powder charge exploded, gas from explosion propelled projectile. Sounds like all the laws of physics were accounted for.

    I'd give him a certificate of appreciation.

    Ha ha, and the other car with the other bad guy is suspected of having bullet holes in it. The cops will whine and whine about that being illegal, and yet they will use it as evidence if they actually find the guy, in which it will greatly help.

    I won't tell people to do it, but...

    It's a better world when they do.

    The real issue is that it's a rare time when it can be done without serious risk to collateral damage.

    As reported by the local news, the local authorities have determined that it was lawful.
    I no longer have any confidence in the moderation or administration of this forum. Nonetheless, the First STILL protects the Second, and the Second protects the First! Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and other founding documents. If you're going to do anything at all, do it right!
