GA Shooting

Yeah, these guys are going to prison and absolutely should. I would give them the death penalty if it was up to me.

Whoa, yeah. Pursuing like that... Crossed the line by miles.

Perhaps not the open and shut murder case the media would like everyone to believe.

Imagine that. I realize it may not be how many people feel, but I still contend, once someone steps outside of the law, he no longer deserves the protection of the law, from the populace.

I don’t care if people shoot thieves, to recover their property, or the bum, screaming about how they want to kill him, or the bravo trying to intimidate them.

I think that should be between them, and their conscience/God.

Law, and civilization, are fragile things, won at a high cost. Threats to it, should be destroyed.

even if that was the neighborhood burglar, and I haven't seen anything other than he was trespassing at a home under construction, the way these two went about was negligent and showed a disregard for everyone's safety. You make a positive ID on a guy running past your yard, so you grab your guns and chase him for 5m in your truck, but at no point do you call 911? That's not OK.

Heck, if one or both of them could identify him and knew his name and that he was in the system (on probation), they could just call the non-emergency line to the local po-po. Where he lives is going to be on record.

I live in Texas, which have some of the most permissive laws in the country as far as using force to stop a fleeing thief. And even in Texas, you can only use force if the thief is fleeing with stolen property, and then only the force necessary to prevent the loss of the property. The force is being used to recover the property, not prevent the bad guy from running away. So unless they could positively know that he was attempting to escape with stolen goods, even in Texas they wouldn't have been justified in using force.

He had a history of burglary, and was looked like a burglar caught on video, but wasn't caught.

Do I think he got caught in the act. Yes.
Do ithink these two dumbasses should go to jail? Yes

Yeah, pretty much my take too. He may have had issues, but that does not make him fair game to chase down and shoot on the street.

Also, I read that apparently the police were going o arrest him right after the event but the DA (with whom he is friends) told them not to. Sounds kind scummy.
