Of course as much as we would all like to be able to just what he did under the circumstances, obviously this guy WAS COMPLETELY WRONG!
He would have been wrong even if the guy had turned around and drew down on him simply for having persued him in the first place... it is never proper for CCW to "chase" someone, that changes it from self-defense and stopping the threat to aggression and murder. Then to shoot an unarmed man with his hands in the air ???
My only surprise in this case at the moment is that he is charged with second degree murder rather than first. I believe he had enough time to decide that he was going to shoot the guy making it pre-meditated rather than a crime of passion or reaction.
It is such a shame that he had a CCW, each action like this by a CCW holder sets our entire movement back several steps.
Edit: Although I stand by my statement, I am impressed that the comments appear to be overwhelmingly IN FAVOR of the shooter and most think he did good. Perhaps that is indicitive of how bad things have actually gotten in the big cities. I actually hope the guy gets off, but I don't think it will happen.
