    Congrats to Mr. Connell...
    Quick thinking and good shooting saved the day, too bad though, both dirtbags will live to rob again.

    Drawing on them when they already had guns out, could have been a fatal mistake. I'm glad he got away with it and sent them to the hospital. Too bad he didn't put them in the ground.

    ^^^^^^^^^^Understandably^^^^^^^^^

    But when going through the situation, and the totality of it, if and when you realize the robbers are all in and are likely going to start shooting anyway, what have you got to loose??

    Not saying thats the case, but..........

    Don't try to raise if you ain't got the cards. Looks like Mr. Connell was holding the better hand.
    I reject your reality, and insert my own.

    And this is exactly why I do not watch the news or read the papers anymore. How exactly is this bad, that two individuals committing a violent crime did not succeed?!?

    Agreed. Can't say I wouldn't have done the same thing.

    Five people to watch, when their eyes are on somebody else, make your move. I'd be willing to bet, he did not act with them looking at him.
