I am sure that to some elderly people out there I am a kid. However the only reason for calling a dead scumbag a kid in this thread is to fraudulently imply that he was somehow a child or a minor.He was a young man, and to some older people he may be regarded as a 'kid'. I am only two years younger than him, and despite being legally an adult, I am regarded as and treated as a kid by many people.
You do not know why he was hiding.He could have been reaching for a weapon or trying to ambush them. You don't.Not so, he was shot while trying to hide from men who were chasing him with guns.
The burglar was trespassing and trying to burglarize the place. You do not know for sure if he was trying to flee.
That depends upon the jurisdiction, but in most jurisdictions, you may only use lethal force in cases of genuine self defence (where your or someone else's life is in danger), not in the potential defence of property. The burglar was not shot in the commission of a crime, he was shot while attempting to evade his pursuers.
Do you have any links that property owner may not arm themselves and be ready in the event their property is burglarized?It does in most jurisdictions.
The US is not some Eurotrash country that sympathizes with criminals. So it is legal here in the US to shoot a burglar.It may not be vigilantism, but it is certainly an illegal act if no explicit or implicit threat is present.
I am surprised it is not illegal in your country for rape victims to defend themselves.
Ask Tony Martin, the Norfolk farmer, who was initially sentenced to life imprisonment for shooting a burglar who was attempting to flee his property.
