Shooting someone can only be right when it is to protect a person.
Liberals hardly ever can be on the side of law abiding citizens.
Here's how I think about it.
Is a car (or it's contents) worth a human life? Well I know it's not worth my life, or the lives of my loved ones, because I know the value of those lives. I would think that it's also not worth the life of a random person who I find in my driveway in the middle of the night.
But here's the thing. That random person believes their life is not worth more than my car, since they decided that is a potential trade off they are willing to make the moment they decided to steal my car. And who am I to think that I know the value of their life better then they do? If they really value their life that low, then I'm not going to waste time arguing with them about it.
The Star Telegraph said "killing in the defense of property can never be right" - did not say car/truck/van, they said "property." They think anything you own is not worth using deadly force to protect. They believe anything a store/business owns is not worth using deadly force to protect. They are idiots disguised as journalists.
That's because they have never been victimized by theft, and they believe that the garbage walking around trying to take what we work for, are justified because they are "victims" of society. They have no concept of right and wrong, they only see a death. While I agree the death could have been prevented, the prevention should have come from the 17 year old not becoming a thief. The Socialist left believe that if they want something you have, they are justified in taking it. Hopefully, someone else will change their mindset and not be the next one shot stealing something.
