    Yuk Yuk...It's not like he went before a judge for the crime of breaking into a vehicle and the judge sentenced him to be devoured by a hungry alligator as punisment for his crime.
    He ran from the law right into the jaws of death.
    It just was not his day.

    Actually, the story said that the hammerhead was found with tooth marks on his body, nothing about any body parts missing. All the search ruckus probably scared the gator off before he could start eating. Or maybe he didn't taste good. Don't know, really don't care. One less waste of money to keep the slug housed and fed in jail.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    Gators kill by drowning the victim, not by major blood loss or other means.

    Maybe instead of jails, we should dig ponds. It would be a lot cheaper.

    Jeez, lighten up. It's not like he went to court and the judge sent him to the alligator pond. He jumped in. I don't think anybody is saying breaking into a car means death by alligator. The point is the BG got paid for being a BG. It wouldn't have happened if he had been in school or at work.
