    I'm ending the attack, but no way I'm chasing after the guy. For one thing, my knees suck. OFWG's don't chase.

    Agree w/ OldFart60. I'm all for having one less BG on the street, but if the BG was running away from the initial victim, then what threat was he to the eventual shooter? This can easily sound like a case of revenge. Hopefully it was as described, chasing down BG (ballsy move esp w/ known firearm) and responded with deadly force only when BG confronted him with his weapon.

    As usual, there has to be some kind of idiot remark from the bad-guy's family... here it is:

    "They're not going to press charges against the man who killed my son? Are you all serious?" she said. "That man chased my son down and gunned him down."

    Yeah yeah, your son was just a little angle who wouldn't hurt anybody, right? He was just turning his life around. He was a good kid. Yeah yeah... Why can parents never face the truth? I'm a parent, and sure my daughter is only 8 years old. But when she gets older if the police show me evidence she is committing crimes, I think I'll be really disappointed, but certainly not in denial about it.

    That’s right, NO CHARGES for “gunning him down”. To bad we don’t have more law abiding citizens with the balls and firepower to help catch or kill the criminals like your son. Maybe if your son hadn’t robbed a lady at gunpoint of her purse and pistol-whipped her in the head he would still be alive. I’m glad he’s gone.

    She just can't believe her little boy got shot for being a punk a hoodlum!!!!!

    What I don't understand is why his sister the accomplice wasn't charged with felony murder. Any thought on this from you local guys?

    Look at it this way, cops are trained on how to stop a BG and how to take him into custody. Even so, hardly a day goes by that you don't read about a cop who is in big trouble because something unforeseen happened during the arrest.

    Smart people know when to back off and leave the rest to the cops.
    what if the pistol whipped woman was your mother? or your wife?

    The thought from some of our local "in the know guys" is that they would need to go to a Grand Jury for the felony murder charge. The other thought is that they may wait to bring that charge later so the good samaritan's id is not exposed right away. There have been many death threats made from the criminals family and friends.

    The classic BG family comment coming from Momma or Auntie or Granny is "he was a good boy". I guess they just left out the "for nothing" at the end of their statement. As to chiming in on this incident--As much as I would like nothing better than to eliminte one more piece of slime from the streets, I cannot see myself running into danger. Good witness yes. Dirty Harry no. As to citizen's arrest--in SC, at night only, (do not ask me why only at night--this is SC and there are a lot of things I do not understand), you can effect a citizens arrest and you can use any means including death to prevent the perp from evading your citizens arrest--ie you can shoot him in the back if he continues to run away from you.

    Exactly the difference between the higher and lower ends in the gene pool. I remember that sobering conversation with my dad when I was a kid and got caught sneaking out late nights to go hang out with the wrong crowd in Baltimore early on. It was made VERY clear that if he got a call from the cops requesting to come pick me up that he was going to tell them to leave my butt in jail!

    Yep, my old man told me if he ever got a call from me in jail he'd tell me he was glad to know where I was and that he'd see me in the morning. Too many f'n parents are checked out these days. Thanks for raising me right Dad.
