I'm still glad that the home owner is alive and well, and the little dirtbags were caught.
    One could argue, in this specific case that once the homeowner gave up the chase and was returning home, his subsequent encounter with the suspect became a separate incident whereas a true lethal threat became imminent. The suspect became the aggressor and approached him with a gun. He was at that point forced to defend himself using whatever means he had. It was no longer a case where he chased down a fleeing felon where there was no longer a direct threat to him. (Having to argue that premise in court would likely be a very expensive endeavor, as well.)

    However, that said... it is agreed that chasing the punks was a bad idea and homeowner came dangerously close to getting got! Had the suspect been a hardened criminal, the victim would have likely been the one who did bring a knife to the proverbial gunfight, and likely would have ended up on the losing end of the encounter. He was extremely lucky!

    If somebody knows what they are doing with a knife, they are just as dangerous as a gunman.

    Agreed. Apparently this guy knew what he was doing with the knife.
