So.... Let me get this straight, these two men in different parts of the same country do pretty much the same thing (stopping a robber with a warning shot) and one is called a hero and the other is facing jail time, or at the very least huge court fees. Can someone explain this to me cuz its going over my headPettyOfficer said:This happened in Houston last week: no charges filed. He even admitted to firing one into the ground.
Different states, different laws, i guessModernMusashi said:So....

Yeah, I guess. That just ain't rightiGlock said:Different states, different laws, i guess
Yep. As an ammo wholesaler told me just recently: Zombie Apocalypse and Re-election: best things that ever happened for ammo salesluckily obama is fixing everything........
He should have shot the guy, that is the problem. I hate to be the one, but I have to side with LE a little on this one. Firearms are not supposed to ever be discharged in situations like these except for the preservation of life, and the argument is simply that if you fear for your life then the only option is to fire at the individual, not the ground.I really don't want to be convicted.
Not always a slam dunk. I know someone who had an AMAZING attorney and still got screwed lol. Public Pretender is always a fail though.That poor guy better not let some putz lawyer talk him into a plea deal. I'd take my chances on a jury trial on this one.
This is definitely a case of, 'better tried by 12 than carried by 6'.

1a. If you're smart
2a. Can run fast
3a. Hire your own lawyer and,
4a. Keep your mouth shut...you'll stay out of jail.
Been amazed at how many inmates have absolutely agreed with me over 24 years.
Sounds to me like the poor guy broke rules 1 & 4. Hope he does 3a.
Wouldn't surprise me to find out he was scared to tell the cops he actually did have an AD and didn't want to look like an idiot.
