the father needs a LOT more use of force training.

telling his son to just shoot him in the legs if he gets out you wont kill him is about rock freekin stupid.

LMAO! I wonder how much that guy would have paid for a change of underwear when the father and the son were covering him. I haven't laughed that hard since I heard the 911 call from a guy who wanted to report the theaft of his stash of weed.

I agree with you Jon, He should have told his son to shoot him somewhere fatal. Thankfully, neither one needed to shoot, and the right person was charged with the comission of a crime.

I'm sure dad was just trying to protect his son from the emotional trauma of killing someone. The kid looked about 10 YOA. Think about it, tell a "good" 10 year old kid to kill an unarmed man. Would he have been likely to miss because of the innate moral repulsion for killing? Take away the apprehension and assure the kid he will not kill him and just shoot him in the legs would have put his subconsious at rest and allowed him to shoot well and be more likely to stop a threat.

It is not a perfect answer, but one that I'm sure seemed reasonable at the time.

In all though, good ol' fashion country folk defending their home from a burglar at night. Did you notice the Texas A&M t-shirt? That's country folk.

Same difference either place.
Even the People's RepubliK of Russia lets people defend themselves.
