    shooting of teen

    What do you think? Is this a rightous shooting or is the guy toast?
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

  3. All thou this is very tragic I do believe there is more to this story. There is a piece of the puzzle that is missing. Till that comes out it is hard to tell is it was a good shoot. :suspicious:

  5. I don't know, obviously there is some of the story missing. Still, I think in this situation, you almost have to wait until the kid actually breaks in. Can't just shoot through a window because you think he might.

  6. he should have waited till the kids actually tried to break in. He shouldnt have shot them because he thought they might break in.

    This would be more clean-cut from a legal perspective if he had waited for them to *attempt* to break in (break a window, start prying a lock, etc) before shooting. The window will be a loss anyway whether it's busted with a hammer or a bullet. Firing through a glass window at someone who is standing close to your house is overreacting. I live on a corner and kids walk through my yard all the time. Sometimes they stop and stand around, but I'm not about to start emptying a magazine on them.

    Additionally, when shooting from inside a structure at people who are on the outside, a hit on the first shot is not absolutely necessary. Normally I'm opposed to warning shots, but in this case, you have an incredible amount of cover, and they have none - they also have a lot of room to run. One or two shots into the wall next to the window would probably motivate them out of the area at a high rate of speed, and the rounds should disintegrate if you're using good HPs. You can always say you missed.

    Why was he in fear for his life? Did the boy have a history? Check out a party down the street. Criminals do tell little white lies to cover their asses. My vote good.

    Due to the Castle Law this may be a good shoot. Someone doesn't have to actually break into a home in order to protect yourself. However I think there is more that that they haven't said. It wasn't as clear cut as they said or they would have arrested him instead of referring it to the grand jury. It will be interesting to see the outcome of this!

    I agree did the kid have a history and did this person know about it,could have been a stupid kid cuttig across the yard. He should have waited until until the kid was breaking in.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence ... From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that is good" (George Washington)

    I believe ( from the information given )
    that the shooter over-reacted, stupid

    some people think that them having a CCW or the Castle Doctrine law gives them a license to kill
