shouldve not chased after the burglars
unfortunate situation all around.
So dude should get a pass for killing someone because of his age?
Pregnant or not, the threat was gone and the killing was unwarranted. I don't care if he was 80 or 18. Dude was looking to exact his revenge. Didn't have to go down that way.
You can't use overwhelming force based solely on conjecture. The robbery had already taken place and they retreated once they saw that he had a gun. Once they run away and are off the property you're no longer defending yourself; you're exacting revenge.
And I like how you don't even consider calling the cops after they leave as an option.
I'm just dealing with reality on reality's terms. You have no control over the actions of others. They broke into his home, they retreated, and he handled the situation inappropriately.
You're running on the assumption that it's justified because "they might come back." Which is, again, nothing more than conjecture...and you can't use overwhelming force when it's based off of an assumption. A fairly ridiculous assumption, at that.
Again...I'm gonna keep repeating myself: I have no sympathy for all parties involved in this incident. I'm not gonna co-sign a dude killing someone when they're already down and in the process of retreating.
