I'm not sure I can support this guy actually. Once the bad guy drops his crowbar and jumps in his car to get away, you have to put your gun down and call the cops. You just can't shoot at someone who is fleeing, because that is not causing any harm to yourself.

This is a good example of how LTCF-ers are going to end up with stricter laws, because of guys like this who show poor judgement. You just can't shoot "warning shots" or shoot out people's tires...can you?

I mean, good, if you "can" but I don't think you're supposed to. Granted, the guy said there had been burglaries in the area lately, but still.

What do you guys think?

I agree. If he/she is in your house, light'em up. If they are running away from you in your front/backyard (assuming they are not shooting at you), then let'em go. If they are retreating in the street (assuming they are not shooting at you), let'em go. That's my 2 cents.

Use the same defense that the LAPD used in yesterday's unjustified shootings.

If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
