    There is something to be said for the Southern Gentleman. It is a type that has gone by the wayside, and one I do hope experiences a revival.

    So glad to know I am in the thoughts and hearts and minds of so many of you illustrious forum members. That's what makes horse races--different opinions--and if my comments make you cringe or laugh or cry---so be it. I try to take replies in a positive way but when you get personal in a derogatory manner it is not appreciated and tells me more than I want to know about you.

    Yes dear lady, things have gotten to be rather crude of late, however, do not fret. The South will rise again and chivalry and good manners will become the order of the day....once again. Save your Confederate money!!

    Hope he "walks". If I was on the jury I would buy him some more ammo. The perps initiated the armed assault and one got what he needed. All he needs is one person who has ever been robbed on that jury and he will "walk" away clean. He has cleaned up a threat to society for years to come and needs to be commended. So very tired of theives and robbers getting away with a slap on the wrist.

  6. Wow once the threat is neutralized you need to move on not come back for retribution

    The pharmacist in question has already been found guilty and sentenced to life. There will be appeals but those will not be in front of a jury. The fact is he went WAY too far. Chasing the guy out of the shop and shooting down the street was borderline but likely defensable as a guy running down the streat with a shotgun could endanger others. Even placing a parting shot into the guys brainpain on the way out the door could have been defensable as one could argue that his previous training taught him he could not leave a potential threat behind him. However, returning and shooting the boy while he was down, and after the threat was over, was coldblooded and excessive. He will have a hard time with appeals.

  8. I agree with you Doc. He went one step beyond

    He's definitely going to have a hard time.

    1. He shoots the unarmed kid rather than the one with the gun
    2. He chases after the armed kid and fires shots down the street
    3. He comes back after 15 seconds (a really long time in this situation), acquires another firearm, and puts five more rounds in the kid who has been down the entire time, who is still down, and who he has to almost step over to get to his second gun
    4. He lied to police

    Any one of those things could have flown, but taken together, they show a man who was unsure of his target and was careless in his shooting; had the time and presence of mind to pursue the felon after the threat was neutralized and engage in further careless shooting; and finally had the time and presence of mind to return to the scene, acquire a second weapon, and shoot the already unconscious accomplice.

    At no time within this frame does he pick up the phone to call 911, and when police do respond, he lies.

    All this just really stacks up against him.

    Appalling as this all is, the family's reactions to the verdict were just as bad. The family(I assume of the dead boy) are shown in another vid, jumping and cheering and hugging each other. Yeah, your kid tries to rob a store and you're elated that his murderer is punished. There's something wrong with your priorities there.

    While the "hardened by life" side of me would like to ascribe to the "No Prisoners" approach to countering BG threats of violence, (At least THAT vermin won't ever bother anyone again. Kind of a "civil service", IMHO.)...... you have a requirement to stop the dire threat, NOT act as judge, jury and executioner on the perp. (Besides, you KNOW how folks feel about the death penality these days. Ill advised, but "there it is".)

    That is what the Law generally reads. Therefore, one should not exceed that, ever.

    So what did this guy do? He went from a righteous shoot and local hero to cold blooded killer and jailbird. (More than likely.) It's supposed to be about self defense not hot tempered revenge.

    ..... and on the sarcastic side..... if you are going to "do" someone, make sure it is in the first exchange. No question(s), GI!

    Which part of "... shall NOT be infringed..." confuses you?
