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.

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.
What have you done to prepare for the end of civilization as we know it?

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!

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

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

I missed this, thank you for sharing lokin4deer. Too bad all 4 victims were not armed.

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.
