Armed Grandpa Shoots, Kills General Store Robber In Florida, Won’t Be Charged

After you read this, let’s analyze it. They call him a grandpa but he is younger than me. Not like he was some aged old guy. One robber had the clerk at gunpoint? If I perchance am the clerk, me hopes you will be judicious in shooting the guy that is not holding a gun on me. My suggestion tactically, shoot the guy with the clerk first before he gets freaked out from the gun fire and shoots the clerk. Now all is well that ends well. So I am not criticizing as much as analyzing so that we all learn something about the prudent use of deadly force.

Do you not just love that I can pontificate (rightly or wrongly) on the use of deadly force and the day to day activities of a novice monk? Or as my friend Gary use to call me, a schmonk. That was a hybrid of monk and schmuck. Gary is not the most reverent man I know. Although I often caught him on his knees in seeming prayer only to learn later he was just too high to stand up.
