The TV news here in Philly just announced the shooting was deemed a good shoot. The shooter had a "permit" and was justified.

Great! I'm a little surprised though that he got off so easy having waited outside for them during their getaway. I only read the second link though. I'm glad the bad guys didn't get away.

It began as the robbery of a city convenience store, and ended when a private citizen shot and killed the two robbers Monday, authorities said.

"These two men chose this store as their prize for the day, and it didn't work out very well," Berks County District Attorney John T. Adams said at a press conference Monday night.

Adams said he doesn't expect criminal charges to be filed against the man who shot the two robbers. Adams said the man, whom he described as a "concerned citizen," had a weapons permit and was within his legal rights to shoot the robbers.

According to what I heard on the TV news he told them he called the police and they pulled out their guns which is when he did the same and fired. (to the best of my recollection)

Thank God they didn't steal Skittles instead of cigarettes, or else he'd have been hung out to dry.

Someone tell the libtards that this is how you reduce the overcrowding in prisons and effectively cut criminal recidivism by 100%.

Ohhh okay thanks....makes sense. Although I don't know why he would say that lol. That's inviting violence! (I don't disagree with the shoot tho, just trying to get the details).

Was everybody the same race? That probably helped, if so, frankly....

If "duty to retreat" was back in place, he might have run afoul of it, since he was outside and it could have been argued that he could have slipped away and out of sight of the bad guys, rather than confronting them.
