    Well, if I were a cop or EMT and knew what the situation was......prob'ly woulda' taken me at least three weeks to get there, even if I was just a block away. ...all that traffic, ya' know.

    With our current "justice" system, it is unfortunate that this is sometimes the only way to get justice. Now, if it would just work it's way from Philadelphia to Washington DC....

    I think the main reason it's illegal is that it deprived some lawyers of their fees.

    This is one of those things that having not been there I wouldn't try to formulate to lofty of an opinion on the subject.

    I think there's an object lesson for us here. Use of deadly force in measure to stop the threat. I suspect that the Dad will see the inside of a jail...they may have to prove that he struck the fatal blow or maybe not. He pulled the guy from the car. We see it a lot in Chiraq where the parent leaves a vehicle running with kids in it. She needs her head examined also.

    I think a lot of that depends on the state, and opinions of the district attorney. But the mens rea, the state of mind, isn't right for a murder charge. He wasn't out looking to kill the guy. I read a story about a Texas man who beat a farm hand to death for molesting his toddler, and he wasn't ever charged. If it were just the car, he'd totally be in the klink. If I were on a jury and a dude had killed a man who took off with his kids, unless there was something else that was pretty hinkey, I wouldn't want him to get locked up.

    Can't say I approve of leaving the children in the car unattended though.

    I like the potential final results of maimed, found guilty and turned out into the general prison population. 'Hey, free beat down on this clown for everyone!!!"

    Yeah,yeah, the criminal got what he had coming, but the mother needs to have the
    stupid knocked out of her brain!!!!
    Coulda called her boyfriend and asked when his break was so he could come outside!
    What kind of an idiot leaves their kids in a running car, at night, in a big city that doesn't have a glowing reputation?
    I think a child endangerment charge should be given to the sack the children were born from......................

    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.

    How do we not know that after the father extricated the kidnapper from the vehicle he only chased after him to hold him for police and the thug fell, hit his head and started seizing? How do we know that the neighborhood folks weren't incredibly clumsy and attempted to help the thug out of the road after his medical affliction? As a matter of fact, at this point the only cause of death we absolutely know is: He stopped living.
