    "Upset and remorseful" were words chosen by the writer and/or the deputies to describe the man's state after the shooting (the writer said that the deputies said that ...) so I take that with a grain of salt.

    I'm sure the guy was upset. I sure would be.

    And yes, he should never have made up that crap about a warning shot. But there are valuable lessons to be learned from any shooting.

    Bottom line: the guy is still standing there for us to critique and the bad guy ain't so I'd have to give him a thumbs up for a job pretty well done.

    As well I would never tell the cops that I shot a "warning shot".
    Warning shots are not legal nor defensible in court.
    You pull the trigger and then you are responsible for that action which is (or should be defensive only for imminent fear of ones life or being gravely injured).
    In this case the equation for as much was perfect, 'J.A.M.', and Shaw was justified in his ultimate action/reaction. Just don't call it a warning shot and open a legal and civil liability door for trouble.
    For that matter don't say jack to the cops or media at all, but that's beyond the point.

    I couldn't have said it better. Cops get there exercise your 5th ammendment and call a lawyer. No words until then.

    I haven't been in that situation yet. But the more evil the person I might kill (based on his actions against me as well as his criminal history), the less likely I would be to feel bad about having had to kill him. If the BG was bad and evil enough, I could see a person feeling no worse about ridding humanity of this malformed creature than, for example, a manufacturer scrapping a Frisbee that came out of the mold wrong and was never going to be of any use to anyone.

    Dude, i think you need to change your name.

    I have come to the conclusion that "peacefuljeffrey" comes by his nic for exactly the same reasons a pro-wrestler weighing in at 350 pounds of solid muscle gets the nickname "tiny."

    Thus your never ending mantra: "He was ready to kill me and my family and I HAD to stop him."
