I've seen that one before. Too bad all the cops are busy handing parking and speeding tickets out :)

I am no cop nor attorney, however if I remember what they said in CCW class, you can only shoot if the guy threatens you, not your car. So, you get out of the car, let him approach you with the tire-iron, and "good night" fine sir.

Sad stuff really. My assumption is, there are a few wanted posters with that guys face on it. If there isn't, that is more sad. :cry:

Sometimes abortion would be a good choice, Im thinking this would have been one of those times for his mother.

If it's the video that I think it is, I would have "accidentally" run him over in my attempts to desecalate the situation by leaving the immediate area.

We had a discussion on this video before hacker era (b.h.e). From my torts professor and a brilliant attorney, you would likely be justified for using self defense in this siutation and for defending others if you saw it. Granted, pulling the handgun and firing at will may open you to some liability (or alot), but if he continued to go after you with a deadly weapon, good bye crack addict.

I think him breaking the driver's side window would be cause to blow his ass away.
Absolutely. Once that side window went out I'd have popped him thru it. No doubt about it. He's got a crow bar or pipe or something that he could throw at your head at that point and it was obvious that the driver couldn't move in traffic to escape.

If that was me... That would be one dead gangbanger... And in my area I wouldn't even be charged... You aren't defending your car.. you're defending your life and the life of your family inside the car... and it is obvious that traffic caused a retreat to be very hard...

If this goblin had been vandalizing a parked car, then you aren't justified shooting him for smashing up your car if nobody is in it, as he wouldn't be threatening any people, just property... however PA does have deadly force laws that allow you to protect property as well...

I can tell you it happened here in Las Vegas. I know that street corner. It is on one of the corners of the strip and is a rather tough area behind all the lights. :evil: It did look a little like a planed attack with tire iron being right there.

This is a very interesting video and discussion.Many lessons can be learned here. 1) your particular area CHL laws will dictate "what constitutes justifiable use of lethal force". 2 ) not every situation "IS" what it appears to be. 3) pulling the trigger may end one threat,but what follows may be worse than that. 4) your CHL is the "last result" step to take,but you took on that responsibility when you got it. 5) I would also have run the perp over before administering "acute lead poisoning". 6) thank goodness I live in the "Republic of Texas".We already had this kind of situation occur and the score was motorist-1 and perp-0.Even some of the usual liberal politicos sided with the goodguy.Remember that Fatman,corner of Westheimer and Shepard at the light? Texas is a great place to have a CHL.Heck...even most non-CHL folks are no billed.........Herman.

Yeah, I recognized the gift store. It's on Sahara and LVB.

Like I said in the thread that got shanghai'd, if I had a passenger, I'd have shot him.

"...how the person was paid to do it..."
So he {It?} made a fast $10 to buy more crack?

Wouldn't have bothered to dirty a pistols bore..the insant he got in front of the bumper would have given him a free pair of crushed or broken legs.

"You just made my Day, MF!" :lol:

yep.. id have to say id of shot him after the window broke. Wi doesent have concealed cary laws. so if i had a weapon with me id of shot him. if not i would of repeatedly ran his ass over untill he was no longer a threat . and if he still breathed i would then consider getting out and snapping his neck to make sure he cant do something like that to anyone else. people like that are a danger to society and should be removed one way or another. immagine that being your wife in that car. OR worse your wife and child in the car...
