Just one shot too.  In NYC the cops would have shot at him 41 times, hitting him 19 times, and all the shot guy would have had to do is reach for his wallet, not wield a machete.

Don't you think that death is a very harsh penalty for just running at a man in Target?

The victim, 25-year-old-year-old Carlton Spencer, tried to approach the shooter from the side when the gunman turned to the would-be attacker and shot him once in the chest, said police, who added the victim was unarmed.

Interesting use of the word "victim'. He was attacking a guy with a machete along with three other guys, but he's a victim.

Exactly. Sounds like the guy was defending himself against a gang. He should be given a damn medal. I love the ridiculous tone of the article and fact they frame it as he just randomly turned and shot a guy haphazardly who was "unarmed".

That's amazing. I am more of a race car bed kind of guy though, and, no idea on the Farkie. It will always be a mystery. Right on par with where the left sock always goes and when does milk actually expire.

Every time I go to Target I come home with something I didn't plan on getting.

Never a fatal bullet wound, though.

The shooter did everything right.  When confronted by a group of thugs with a machete, he tried to get away by running.  When he was no longer able to run, because one of them caught him, he defended himself with the force necessary to end the threat.  He didn't exceed the force he needed to use, he didn't shoot the other 3 as they ran. Simply put, this is the very definition of a responsible gun owner.  Hell, he showed much more restraint and judgment than most gun owners I know would have, and better accuracy than the average cop to boot.
