Default Detroit man shoot carjacker

This happened at a gas station I frequent alot. Detroit carjacking suspect shot, crashes, dies | Detroit Free Press | freep.com

I hope this man isn't charged with anything, but in Detroit you never know. The city leadership is very leftist anti-gun. Of course all the mayor's bodyguards are armed with guns though.

I don't think it looks good for this guy unless the DA is cool. You definately can't shoot someone to protect your property in MI. I don't see how he can claim his life was in danger.

Now, if the car jacker was coming at him with the car...

Or if the scumbag used a gun in the car jacking, he could always claim that the criminal drew his gun as he was heading off. However, the actual location of the gun might dispute that (holstered, in pocket, etc)

The newsies got that article all wrong; imagine that. Maybe the cops got it wrong too. Turns out the hijacker was armed with a gun. The the scumbag was shot in the car by the good guy. The good guy has been on local TV there: Not a good idea.

The scumbag had some short time to reflect on his actions before he croaked.

BGs dying, instead of becoming a burden on the taxpayer.

IMO,THIS is a good start.

The victim should join the NRA.

You should, too.

How long before the family of the "misunderstood youth," starts in on the sob stories? "He was such a nice boy."
The shooter needs to shut up and lawyer up.

If the guy shot him as he was driving away, he may be in big trouble depending on the exact circumstances. Hopefully not, but if the threat of violence was over, it won't be good.
