Dilemma? For who? The dilemma is whether I call in that I found him right after he shot himself in the nuts with my throw away gun and then fell and hit his head until he was dead, or do I wait a little while and really hurt the guy before I call in an anonymous tip that the suspect was being chased into a wooded area by a group of anonymous do-gooders with baseball bats?
edit on 20-9-2010 by getreadyalready because: (no reason given)
beat the hell of the suspect
give a clinic on how to torture and punish a suspect
There is no way he's leaving alive, and it wouldn't be quick
he'd pray for death.
the line between suspect and actual perpetrator would be conclusively answered with a simple glance, in this situation.
Open the door and if your daughter is actually there, without your consent

Quite possibly. But I think you'd be more likely to get an accurate read on that by knocking on the door, looking the guy right in the eyes and telling him why you were there, than by kicking it in and shooting holes in him.
But how would you know whether she's there without going inside? Would you smash the door in and tell the guy to get on the ground while you looked? Would you tie him up and start breaking fingers, demanding to know where the basement is?
Or would you knock first, and talk to him?
The general response I'm seeing from people is that they'd shoot first and ask questions later...if he was unlucky enough to still be alive to answer them. I see some people jumping ahead to how much they'll hurt the kidnapper and some speculating on how best to get the daughter back from the kidnapper, but I see very little interest in identifying whether the suspect had anything to do with it.
Why are we presuming guilt?

If that is true, I am so sorry for you and your wife and that little girl.
But I suspect this is about writing something, in which case I will not offer anything.
