No I would not have fired. The robbers left the store. There is no reason for a customer to pursue and fire on them. Call 911, give a detailed discription to the police and let them make the arrest.
Was the citizen arrested? Enough said.
It doesn't matter what we think. If the Officers on sean think it was justified then who am I to say other wise when all I have is just a few sentences.
Yeah, I'm gonna agree with most people here. Not enough details, but I most likely would not have taken the shot, unless they had done something violent in the store.
It would suck that they get to steal stuff, damage my car, and just drive off-and I get stuck with the burden of having to repair my vehicle... but still not justification to shoot. (let's be honest with ourselves, these guys aren't getting caught. Not for this, anyway.)
<snip some stuff> should you be able to deploy a firearm as a tool for that purpose if you reasonably judged that you could do so without causing undue risk to human life?
