    That is not in any shape or form similar to the OP story. Thanks for playing though.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Maybe I thought he had a weapon and began to pull it on me. Maybe he said a death threat to me.

    When I walk out of court, watch me live it up at T.G.I. Fridays. Better luck next time, counsel.

    Best part? One less piece of trash in the world today.
    In your hypothetical scenario, we only get rid of the 'trash' if the hypothetical you gets killed drunk driving home from T.G.I. Fridays.

    By the way, lying to police with an Oscar Winning Performance... that would make you more guilty than the thief.

    So planting a weapon on an unarmed man is good... in your moral view.

    Get your compass checked.

    Personally I think you can just get away with a sob story in front of a felonious corpse. Then again, I'm cheap. Guns aren't.
    nah, you can get a pos handgun dirt cheap. or even better, you can get realistic looking toy guns for a coulple of bucks at wally world. put one of those in the dead POS's hand and not only can you claim you thought he was going to shoot you...you can make him look like a dumbass for trying to rob you with a toy gun. it's a win-win

    Matthew 19:18 KJV - He saith unto him Which Jesus said Thou - Bible Gateway
    8He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
    shhhhhh...don't confuse him with facts. his opinion is all that matters.

    Fair enough. I would hope you see your days hanging out with thieves and violent criminals and not waste time with entrepreneurial people minding their own.

    Sure do like to defend the underbelly of society. Are you having a little bit too much in common with them? Your defense aligns you with simple gutter trash.

    To each his own.

    Don't play the dumb card. They were considered " vigilantes" - it is unlawful to take the law into your own hands.

    a two-week-long civil trial in which business owner Jovan Milanovic and two relatives were painted as vigilantes who plotted a deadly ambush rather than let authorities deal with a string of recent burglaries.

    What is it with most of these Constitution-loving people? They love the Constitution but defend the right to take the law into their own hands? Isn't that sort of hypocritical?


    Spewing insults at those who are not condoning the thief, just agreeing that the "vigilantes" had not business taking the law into their own hands, shows that most of those thinking it was okay to be a vigilante don't have much use for the "law" - so quit the BS about loving the Constitution.
