I have been wondering here - let us say you intervene when present at an armed robbery. BG had gun but thru your own gun on him decides to opt to live another day.... surrenders his piece and ''assumes the position'' on floor.
So - you have him at gun point, his piece is secured by you or another and 911 has been called ... and you wait ...............
During said wait, BG decides he wants freedom - no fight - just freedom. He gets up and makes to escape. He is now unarmed and so presents no lethal threat.
You remind him he is covered but he continues to want to escape.
As I see it - for us as non LE, we cannot actually shoot?? No threat - then we have no legal recourse to self defence any more. Do we have to let him go?
Just interested to get your take on this.
