    I have no comment because my mom said if I don't have something nice to say I shouldn't say anything at all.

    Watched way too many movies IMHO

    Obviously here in NY state he was clearly in the wrong. Is it true that some states (TX) allow you to shoot someone fleeing a felony?

    darkvibe,
    Only if he has your property and a reasonable person would deduce that there will be no other way to recover said property. A few more stipulations, like if recovering that property at a later time would likely result in severe injury, but that's about the gist of it. I wouldn't want to be the test case of an overzelous prosecutor. You cannot shoot somebody who is just fleeing a felony...only to prevent the felony or to protect your property.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
