    Have you attempted to commit armed robbery? If not, perhaps you are not quite in the demographics that we're discussing here. Talk about bad analogy.

    Why not? It's my garage. I can do with it what I want.

    Trespassing into a place of business with a weapon. You seemed to forget that.

    That aside, centrist is right. The next time you get robbed, go ahead and assume that 1) the party is unarmed, and 2) he can be reasoned with and convinced to flee without attempts to harm. Maybe you can talk your way out of a felony in progress.

    If you want, I can make sure the Basement receives a "In Loving Memory Of..." thread devoted especially to you. Your bravery will never be forgotten.

    You must remember the liberal mentality of some, that stealing from people to help yourself is okay.

    It's reasonable to set your garage on fire if you see what you think is a human running into it.

    The assumption is that just because the guy had knives on him, he planned on using them. But there's no evidence that he intended to use them, AFAIK. Nor is there any evidence, AFAIK, that the shooters even knew he was carrying knives.

    Nah, the liberal mentality is that people should follow the law. Crazy, I know.

    Unless he's a butcher, I'd say common sense would dictate that carrying knives during an incident of grand theft auto slightly leans toward the side of carrying them for potential use. Either you're attempting to be the devil's advocate here, or you're astronomically ignorant.

    Dude.... he was packing THREE knives, one of them strapped to his leg for deep concealment, while in the commission of a felony. BIG diff....
