The would be robber began running BEFORE he even lost full control of his weapon. Just the fact that the guy was fighting back scared the crap out of him. This speaks volumes to me. Anyone else care to say what comes to their mind when thinking about that?

Good point trip. I noticed this myself. Reminds me of something that happened when I used to drive limos. had someone try to jack me one night. My window was down, he shoved in a pistol, and ordered me to get out.I didn't even think about it, I put the window up with his hand still inside the car.
After removing his gun, (turns out it wasn't even loaded), I took him for a walk, all the way to the closest police station. When I trapped his hand, he freaked. When the car started to roll forward, he started to scream and beg. Took about 15 minutes to get him there because I never went over 5 MPH, but he was very glad to see them when we did. After all the paperwork was done, I went home, and he went to a cell. That's not very uncommon when the victim fights back, the gun is supposed to cause fear and intimidate. Resistance is not expected.
1911, while I personally feel the same way, his attacker was fleeing from him. If he had shot, it would not have been self defense at that point. He would have been up on charges at that point. Not saying it's right, but it is the law, and he was on video at that point. if it was me, I would have been very tempted to shove that shotgun up his azz so far that he would be tasting Rem-Oil, but it still wouldn't be legal.
