    Not so sure ret. I think he recently got SOMETHING pounded into his head that he soon won't forget.

    Maybe even the perfectly placed .22LR ocular cranial shot?

    Further proof that the "Travis Solution" can work...

    Thats what I was thinking, he has 11 convictions in 8 years, averging over one per year and he only spends a total of two years in jail! I thought there were laws about being a habitual criminal.

    We are kindlier and gentler toward our criminal here in NC. We just had an illegal alien kill someone after multiple DUIs. That's when we nab them. I mean we did give him multiple changes to change.

    I guess Jessy Jackson and Al Sharpton were busy because I didn't see their names mentioned. Maybe later.

    I wish there were more about the actual shoot so we could learn more. Was it a 'draw, aim, shoot' from xxx location, caliber, distance, number of shots fired, etc. I always thought that multiple shots were better, i.e. double tap until the gun is empty ... maybe that is overkill but the use of deadly force is to completely stop what is going on.

    This is something I would like to know as well. In others discussions I have said that I would see nothing wrong if a person walking in on a robbery in progress were to shoot the robber in the back making no attempt to warn him. Without giving the robber any chance to give up. Just take the shot with the advantage of surprise on your side. There were some that disagreed with my thoughts on this.

    I might have been one to disagree.... if the clerk is held at gunpoint... what shot are you going to make that will guarantee that the gunman's finger doesn't contract on his trigger? You have to get his gun off the clerk...

    The "Travis Solution"... might be one way. The "Collateral" briefcase scene, not so much... no surprise there in that scene... and the BG talks too much... if Ida been the BG in the Collateral scene... I'd have shot the cabby and Cruise.

    Travis solution:

    It could be worse.
