    Family rescues woman who was abducted-Abductor Killed

    I'm not sure if this has been posted or not yet but it seemed relavant.

    This woman was abducted by an ex, the family didn't give up looking for here and eventually found her and her kidnapper. During a confrontation, to protect her life they shot and killed him.

    Provided their account is accurate (Which I hope it is), job well done.

    In all that video, I was surprised to see only one LEO with a long gun approaching the house from what looks to be a long way off. Anyone else think that's a little deficient?

    Rescued is rescued. Not dead is not dead because somebody got there in time.

    Of course there is that judge in Ga that would rule they should have stood there, called police and waited while the girls throat was cut in front of their eyes

    Sadly, our statutes largely don't distinguish between reasonably taking our lives into our own hands and taking "the law" into our own hands (aka, vigilantism). If it happened anywhere other than Louisiana, they might well already be wasting away in jail pending charges for exactly that. We'll have to see how this one goes.

    Can't say as I exactly agree with the concept that this is what we hire police for, and that that simple fact we've hired some folks to do such things equates to disallowing and criminalizing our ability to do the same when we personally witness violent felonies in progress ... despite the fact that we've gone in search of loved ones in dire deadly need. (Lost kid, go hunting for him/her in the neighborhood, see an abductor violating him, take him down when he threatens death upon the child or those coming to his aid. Little different than that, if done in much the same way, IMO.)

    That said, it's heartening to see some folks utterly fed up with the ludicrous tangled system we have. Even so, in a violent hostage type situation, there are any number of variables and realities for which the average person simply has never trained and isn't prepared. Can't imagine the average citizen having much chance of everything coming out clean like this. They apparently formed their own "posse" and went felon hunting. Hopefully they won't be jumped on too heavily, once the DA gets through with them.

    I think the DA will have difficulty making a case. All the eyewitnesses 'prolly have the same recollection of events leading to the unfortunate demise of the abductor. But to every cloud there is a silver lining, the taxpayers will not have mourn the expense of a trial for the 'accused'.

    If that happens it will be a travesty of justice.

    I like the DA in our town. She sends almost everything to the Grand Jury and lets them decide.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    You gotta love a little backwoods justice. The family saved us a bunch of tax dollars doing what they did.

    Detached reflection cannot be demanded in the presence of an uplifted knife -- Oliver Wendell Holmes.

    Choice of evils.

    The trouble is, though, that these folks went looking for the guy. That right there is going to seem, in some people's minds, tantamount to vigilantism and forming an unofficial posse outside the "authority" of the law. Yet, law derives from the people, and these people were the victim's family and loved ones. IMO, they have every right to halt an active violent felony in progress right under their noses, just as anyone would on the street, despite the fact they'd been keeping their eyes/ears open for the location of the guy for two days.

    Good luck to them all. May the DA and GJ have sanity and rationality, here. For, justice has been served. And that's the whole point.

    No (real) person wants to take a life but to take a life to save a life is a fair trade in my book regardless of what happens in the aftermath.

    Looks like Scott Thomas picked a good day to die.

    Thanks to the family he will no longer be able to victimize and abuse anymore.

    May his soul burn in hell.

    The DA and the police should not even consider insulting justice and that family by advancing this case.

    IMO, The very minute he abducted the sister, Scott Thomas committed suicide. He is dead; taken care of by family members.......as it should be

    So so glad that her family was able to rescue her and that she will be able to recover from her physical wounds. Such a sad story.
