The robber barely made it into the next county before he was arrested. It will be 20 years before he robs another store. The store had proper insurance. He was out $2,500 for the deductible.

I have known that storekeeper for many years. If he was in the store alone the robber wouldn't have got out of the store.

Not everyone sees a robbery as a reason to endanger their daughter.

The only thing I see as more reckless is people who shoot birdshot so they can shoot in the direction of their loved ones.

I recall a trooper in Afghanistan (I believe) being interviewed. They came under attack and he went to rescue another US trooper. He also grabbed a wounded enemy and pulled him toward other US troops to save him.

They asked, "Why did you do that"? He said, "We are American's. That's what we do".

It seems unnatural to allow or watch someone die regardless of who they are or what they did. They are still human beings.

So I'm with manta. I don't know what I would do. I just hope it would be the right thing - whatever that is.

That could put you outside the coverage of the Good Samaritan law.
I have what I call blood sponges (absorbent dressings), gauze, scissors, tourniquet, and airway.

If that won't save someone then the clotting agents aren't likely to help much at that point because everything else will have been tried first and a lot of blood will have been lost.

The only people I've seen use clotting agents are corpsmen, paramedics, and doctors, and I'm not one of those, so… If it comes to that, better luck in the next life.

The police and prosecutors would love to read your, and some other post if you ever had to defend yourself. Some people should try thinking before posting.

Castle doctrine buddy roe. Also here in the country the bump is likely going to be a coon in the trash.

I see I did not know that Castle doctrine allowed for a homeowner to finish off someone that was wounded for example and no longer a threat.

That's subjective and could be hard to prove; one juror sees "no longer a threat" while another sees "injured criminals lunging for throats".
