Well, down here in Alabama where we dates our sisters and such...lol...we have gotten a few things right. I can use deadly force to stop a felony in the act. I can use deadly force if I perceive that my life or another is in grave danger. We also have "Castle Doctrine". We can and will defend our home/vehicle/persons with deadly force. Crooks don't last a long time down here anymore. And, if the said crook does manage to get the upper hand and harm us and get away...one of our many, "Look Alike" relatives will soon be hot on the trail of said perpetrator...probably with the rather large pack of angry looking hounds that lay around/under the poach. Don't mess with us....country folks can survive! Heck, the "Walmart" "creatures" are scared of us!!!!:laughing:

There is a difference between using lethal force if you believe your life is in danger and using potential leathal force just because you're pissed off someone stole from you.

He was in the process of a felony, wasn't he?

Let me call my first witness. Mr good sense. Mr good sense (GS) do you think maybe the guy stealing the woman's purse and possibly getting away with it, would put her and her loved one's at risk? Just maybe he could then use the info in the purse to know where she and said loved one's live? Yes, answers Mr GS, I would gladly run over the dirt bag to stop this felony in progress. Stealing something is a felony. Don't matter what a slippery lawyers might try to turn it into, it is a felony. She should have said , "Halt" and if he did not halt....run over him if that makes everyone feel better about the whole deal. I am glad she did not hit anyone else as that would really be bad. If I'd been there, I would have run over and stomped his head a couple of times to get those "Ants" off him.

To get serious, here is what the castle doctrine is down here. "(3) Committing or about to commit a kidnapping in any degree, assault in the first or second degree, burglary in any degree, robbery in any degree"

Simple enough....

I think I saw the guy whisper the words "I'm going to go get my gun and kill you!"

Clearly, the woman feared for her life.

You know your right, when I see the video up close in ultra HDTV, I can also see him say that, good one............

Since all the guy got was a few bumps and scratches, they are going to have trouble convincing a reasonable person that she used deadly force. She stopped without running over him. It's a matter of degree. I know how to kill someone with my bare hands, but if all I do is break his nose, it's not deadly force. I think her lawyer will have plenty of points to argue if it goes to trial.

"Yes Mr. Mason, but how do you show she was in fear for her life when she had to get into her vehicle and run the man over while he was running AWAY from her? "

No No, you don't understand, Your Honor. She was going backward and he ran into the front of her truck....going backward. Clearly all his fault! :thumbsup:

Well Cowboy ... mebbe you might wanna brush up on the actual Alabama law:

Alabama Code Title 13A. Criminal Code § 13A-3-27:

...

(g) A private person acting on his own account is justified in using physical force upon another person when and to the extent that he reasonably believes it necessary to effect an arrest or to prevent the escape from custody of an arrested person whom he reasonably believes has committed a felony and who in fact has committed that felony, BUT he is justified in using deadly physical force for the purpose ONLY WHEN he reasonably believes it necessary to defend himself or a third person from what he reasonably believes to be the use or imminent use of deadly physical force.

...
