      Right, because his primary job at the hospital is security.

          Justified use of deadly force? This board would be lit up if a cop shot an unarmed burglary suspect in the back while running away, even if the burglar had punched the cop to the ground before taking off running.

          • No, not justified; that guy is toast. You shoot to end the threat, if they're running away there's no threat. The difference is he's an old man in his house who went too far. Cops are trained to know this, and they get a lot of leeway because of their presumed honesty and trustworthyness, so when they violate that trust it is particularly heinous.

            • As to the doctor, that situation is exactly what CCW are for.

              "The scene is secure. Everyone is safe," Whelan told a late afternoon news conference."

              Um, maybe in fantasy land, but in real life there's a dead social worker and two wounded people. That's not safe.

                  The 80-year-old should have been arrested on the spot.

                  • PHOENIX (AP) — A medical researcher at a renowned neurological hospital who was arrested last month after police say he pointed a loaded rifle toward a woman and her teenage daughter inside Phoenix's main airport said Monday that his firearm "was never pointed at anyone" and he was just trying to make a political statement.

                    The jackass fanned the two women. Real responsible. Way to make gun owners look good.

                          • (MOHAVE COUNTY, Ariz.) -- An Arizona gun instructor was shot and killed Monday while showing a nine-year-old girl how to use an automatic Uzi.
                            Mohave County Sheriff Jim McCabe said that after demonstrating single shots, Vacca let the girl fire the Uzi as fully automatic. However, the gun recoiled, lifting the girl's shoulder, which resulted in Vacca suffering a fatal bullet wound to the head.
