I can't remember how many times I shop lifted when I was young.
Can't remember how many times I smashed windows or done any other relatively small petty crime or vandalism, just for fun or thrills or whatever.
Yes, it's wrong to shop lift. But what's worse, shop lifting or killing a person?
The use of deadly force should only be considered in life threatening situations, in my opinion.
You see a lot of these stories coming from the US and it's sad really, for a country who models itself as home of brave, land of the free. Seems to
me like there's very few brave people out there, and free, well, who's free?
But this will definitely be used as an excuse to call out the whole gun thing, should the people be armed?
I know he wasn't just "people", but a law enforcement officer. Still, it will be used in debates against the guns.
I'm not from the US and I don't live there either, but I'm all for the citizens being armed.
What I'm not for is the killing of shop lifters or any other petty crimes which we have laws for.
It's my opinion that the officer should be made an example.
Rest in peace to the victim, who got shot in the neck.
Maybe the day that your daughter or mother or sister or grandmother gets shot in the neck, maybe that day you wont be such a smart ass (goes out to
the smart asses).
These sort of stories make me not want to go visit the US, EVER.
Imagine just visiting a Wall mart for the first time (never been in one of them before) and getting shot because some John Rambo was firing at a woman
who stole a T-shirt.
Only in America.
