    Poor misguided yutes should be inducted to the infantry and sent to A-stan.

    At least the armed citizen part was reported. Oh, and welcome aboard.

    "defense of another from great bodily harm, or the threat of great bodily harm" ..... I think they were 'covered' as well due to the disparity of force argument.
    They may have stopped it from getting a lot lot lot worse.

    Good thing for the armed citizen! These little gang bangers have no sense of class or pride. They want to be brave and prove their worth, they should enlist for a 4 year term in the military.

    IF the armed witness would have put a hole in one of these teens, regardless of all legal justification, sadly, I believe the shooter's life would be hell right now, or at least back when it happened.
