msgt, I've been doing some pondering on this one also. I wonder how many armed citizens would have been able to get past the apparent ages of these kids and deploy lethal force in time to stop the attack. I wonder if this factor had anything to do with the outcome of this very situation.
We all talk with a swagger when it's here in black and white with the ability to backspace if we make a mistake but I truly feel that if I encountered kids that age the OODA loop may have to run a few extra cycles before I could stop a threat like that.
This is one that while not one for open forum scenario playing at least one to run through your own mind just to get a grasp on it.

Guy was a dummy, unless they promised him, or he thought the girls were older , and that there may have been a little "something in it" for him.
Still, you must assess every situation that presents itself, and then decide what would be an acceptable risk.
He chose unwisely in this instance.

He's unable to defend himself because he's a murder victim. He's innocent until proven guilty, at least in my eyes.
