This one is an oldie, but always relevant.
“Gun to his head, had him on his knees.”
We have discussed the pros and cons of getting involved in a situation not directly affecting us, but this case sounds like somebody was about to be executed and somebody came forward to stop a death.
That the armed robber’s family would dare to bitch is what still amazes me. It is like they feel he should have been entitled to finish with his crime as if protected by some sort of union rules.
Now this case happened in Alabama where the citizen will be shielded from civil prosecution for placing small holes in diverse areas of the armed robber. The question you should be answer is, “Do I have that shield in my state?” If not, you better talk to your State Gun Rights organization and see what is going on… and help get that law in the books.
