    So the question is "can you shoot someone in the recovery process of a stolen car. In some states you can shoot someone in the process of a thief but what about afterwards like this. Can you use a gun to aid in recovery? Does the fact that the car was stolen and removed from the property change the use of deadly force to protect it?

    When I spotted my stolen Jeep; I stopped a block away, called the Police, waited for them to arrive and pointed out the car.

    They followed footprints in the snow to an apartment complex, found no one and returned. I had the keys and they drove it several blocks away. The car was loaded with many items that were not mine. They took the stolen goods and I drove off in my Jeep.

    Here in NY they will release the vehicle to the owner with proper ID from the scene.

    Even armed, I would think it's not too bright to go and try to recover my own car with the criminals inside. Even if the criminals weren't around, I would still have called the police first so they can at least dust for fingerprints. Its sad that this guy lost his life when it could have been avoided with a cool head and common sense.

    Glad you got your Jeep Back! Rare, without lots of damage and stuff.

    This is an unfortunate lesson. I know how it feels wanting to and take care of things on your own, but something like this was definitely not one of them.
