    As much as I would like to see the pricks who stole the trailer prosecuted, convicted, spending a few years behind bars and then deported, I do think death by firing squad is a little excessive for the crime they committed.

    I am skeptical about the "almost ran me over" statement.

    I don't believe we can allow citizens, even 82 year old citizens, to take the law into their own hands. It sounds to me like he shot at them after they had passed him, which means the danger was passed. I'm not surprised that they are prosecuting him.

    I am, however, surprised they are not prosecuting the two thieves.

    okay as shocking as this is...

    the old man should have stayed in his home and called the cops..simple as that..that will be what the crooks lawyers will say...

    that will be the agruement...was he truly in danger...no, he could have simply used the phone...he went into the street with a gun and fired it twice...can you use deadly force over a property ?

    IMHO

    He had every right to cap those fuckers.

    If someone came on to my property and was stealing one of my cars, I'd be unloading on the asshole.

    but laws dont say that....

    luckily he didnt kill the crook....but i think you can only use deadly force when you are threatened....and you cant put yourself in a dangerous postion then declare self defense

    now i will admit in a rural area..i think the police might have charged this differently....

    i am a woman, at home, alone....i have to tell you one time to leave my property....after that....i can call 911 and protect myself....

    And you would be tried for attempted murder or maybe murder as well.

    As much as we'd like to cap the pricks, when we do, we suffer the consequences and rightly so.

    When someone points a car at you and tries to run you down, are you not in danger?

    I would protect myself before I called 911.

    Really? Even if said asshole was trying to run me down? I would have every right to shoot.

    At 82 life in prison isn't long. He should have taken better aim.
