Some of you just don't understand the kind of training these criminals go through. Their adherence to the Thieves Code of Honor would make a U.S. Marine blush. It's not only absurd, but a little insulting when I see some people on here cast doubt on their commitment to a crime well done.

    Shame on you.
    Zakly, but let's also remember that in that "Code of Criminal Ethics" there is a clause that reads one could and should expect to be put down during the commision of earning a lively hood. One of those pesky work hazzards we all have to deal with.
    Frankly I think the Code should be amended that work is a superlative method to earning a living than being infected with lead poisining.

    Based on the age of the victims there should also be a clause in the Victims handbook that permits the shooting your Perp in the back after they've completed their Felony This should be a given for anyone over the age of 55! A "Get out of Jail Free Card" if you will. And extra considerations given for Seniors who can hit a moving target. Possibly a extra FREE Dinner for two at the Golden Corral.

    The robber already had the money and was running away with NO shots fired until the old guy decided to be a hero and opened fire. Not a smart move.

    Stopping the threat, shooting the armed robber(killing him) will guarantee one thing, he won't do it again and it saves taxpayers money. It's swift and immediate punishment. It oughta be a law!

    Sure he was justified. However, it may have been a safer bet to just let him go. We'll never know what might have happened but he's lucky he or one of his friends didn't get shot possibly caused by his actions.

    You are right, we will never know. Maybe the robber decided to try for a thrill kill.

    I would likely fire if the guy was leaving and then turned and pointed the weapon at me. Likely the guy decided to pop one or two "old people" for thrills. To wait until the robber opened fire seems reckless. Once the victim opened fire, the robber probably had an "oh snap" moment and fired wildly.

    Regardless, I'm not going to second guess the victim based only on a spartan set of facts. I wasn't there.

    I would be hard pressed to have faith in the intentions of a person that was robbing me at gun point. I don't blame the victim one bit for opening fire. I would have done the same to protect me and mine. The thief is a criminal, I doubt he has your best interests at heart. The only thing that should be questioned here are his morals and where his values are in relation to that of a human life.

    Sounds like more range time would helped..... but, better than standing there and being a target for a robber who apparently decided he didn't want any witnesses.

    Too bad the victim didn't drop the robber where he stood.
