I don't think we disagree to much, just differ on where the choice lies.
I stated earlier in the thread if the men didn't choose to steal from him, the entire situation wouldn't exist.
However, the man still CHOSE to shoot at the suspects, an inadvertently killed one. It was his choice as to shoot them or not. As it was their choice
not to steal from him.
They both made poor choices. A wrong in defense of a wrong, is not a right.
