No matter how heinous the robber's actions, viglante justice leaves a lot of grey area that as a society we don't wan't to go down.
Had he shot the robber the first time, then called police, he would have been well within his rights.
I wouldn't have taken any joy in finding him guilty, but I'd find him guilty none the less.
I actually agree with you.I just think that considering the circumstances getting life is a bit harsh.What he did was wrong but he was put in a situation where someone could easily make a poor decision.You never know how your mind would react to something like what he went through unless you've been there before.It's very difficult to judge this guy imo.
