WOW thats a lot of fantasy and play on words lets count all the dishonesty and spin.
just a "car lot?" still personal property
"trapped inside a shed? trapped? hiding? planing? waiting to attack? etc etc how do you know?
"Trying to hide" how do you know?
"The cops could have been called and the guy hauled off to prison." or by time they got there he could have escaped who the cops could of discovered the owner dead with a knife sticking in him, isnt the what if game fun?
"exacted" again how do you know? maybe he was shot just before making his move?
assumption is fun but its dangerous when you presume you know everything but I guess its easy to do when its OTHERS lives who could be at risk.
The law in Colorado is clear:
'Overkill'...not just an unfunny pun.Under Colorado’s self-defense laws, the use of deadly force is justified only under the “reasonable belief” that it’s necessary to prevent serious bodily injury or death. The jury found that none of the men had a legitimate claim of self-defense.
Property rights are not a lawful defense for using deadly force in Colorado, and the state’s so-called Make My Day law, which sets lower standard for using force, applies to households, not businesses.
