I voted rape.
This is the point at which I would employ lethal force. This doesn't mean that other levels of response are not justified for lesser crimes. lscurrier I agree with you that we shouldn't let thieves (or any criminals) get away with any crime, no matter the magnitude. That being said, I don't believe that all crimes are necessarily deserving of lethal force. The gun is only one tool in the toolbox. For the lesser crimes - well, that's why they make collapsible batons. (and sticks, and pens, and shoelaces, and paperweights shaped conspicuously like brass knuckles, and electrical cords, etc.)
