    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.

    I, for one, certainly hope the man would not be charge!

    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.

    The cops released the car owner.

    The car owner was gassing up his vehicle when the scumbag jumped behind the wheel. The scumbag went for a gun and the car owner shot him. Then the scumbag took off with the car. Too damn bad a nice SUV was wrecked.

    A good guy threw Clorox in the gene pool.

    carjacker shot

    Michigan does have the "Castle Doctrine" in effect, and is a "Shall Issue" state. I sure hope the guy gets off.

    Certain cities and areas:

    Dearborn, Michigan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It goes without saying, but not all Arabs are Muslim and not all Muslims are terrorists.

    Based upon limited info....the shooter is screwed.

    The car was gone, the subject was in flight, ostensibly, the threat had passed UNLESS the subject was tossing shots back at the car owner.

    That's a tough call, and it sucks...but you have to know when NOT to shoot.

    Not so. See my link above. The car owner was pumping gas in his car when the scumbag jumped behind the wheel. The car owner shot the scumbag inside the vehicle when he went for his gun. The scumbag took off after he was shot.

    The Detroit Free Press had it all wrong. Imagine that, a liberal rag in a high crime city getting it wrong.

    Ah...okay, I didn't see that. I read the Detroit Free Press account...which was sketchy.

    According to your link...he's on a LOT better footing.
