When does good sense come into play in this world?

I wonder where the charges are for the owner of the pitbulls for letting 3 extremely lethal weapons run loose. No different than turning a lion loose.

It also said the boy was shot in the leg but it was undetermined as to whether it was the Good Samaritan or the cop who shot him. I wonder if that will ever come to light. My bet is that if it was the former it will, if it was the latter it won't.

The cops in DC are not making any allies on the streets. Not smart.

To be devils advocate here, maybe it was determined and it was the good Samaritan, and thats why the case is being pushed.

We can argue about it forever buy the fact of the matter is the kid could have been killed if the bullet went higher. Realistically, of course it was an accident but I wouldnt risk shooting the kid to save him, I would have positioned myself better or went and kicked the dog (or intervened as best as possible) or got point blank body shots or rear shots or anything.

I am strictly assuming he was shooting for the head and missed when he shot the kid.

Like I said we could argue 10000000 different senarios but you can risk someones life to save them is all I am saying.

In other news I still think he did a good job and probably should not be pressed with any charges. Accidents happen, he saved a life and it was as close as possible to the best possible outcome.

I know laws are different everywhere, but wouldn't the LEO be obligated to arrest someone who shot something it was against the law? Wouldn't it be the DA's responsibility to do the investigation and then to drop the charges? I wondering how much latitude a LEO on the scene has. I mean if a LEO comes upon homicide, or something, is a LEO really supposed to take someone's word that it was a SD situation and the shooter the good guy?

Well, whatever, I'm just going to stand around and watch rape/murder/slaughter until I get a lawyers written statement on my right to defend another person. Hey! It's the lawyerly American way.
