Neighbor gets shot by Firefighter after he brandishes his firearm!

Recommended Posts

So the old guy that gets shot is in the running for the Darwin Award. He completely disregarded the most important Rule#1:You never brandish a weapon as that is asking to be shot and the legality is against you. Rule #2: When responding to a threat, make sure the threat is completely immobilized/eliminated. Personally, if I am in a situation where I have to use deadly force, I will do everything I can to terminate said threat. That said enjoy the show.

P.s: If you shoot someone 4 times in the chest and they get up and walk away you might want to think about upgrading to a higher caliber like a .45 with hollow points. ;)

Only 4 hits out of how many shots??? .45JHP's don't make you a better shot.

I know he's not getting charged as it was clearly self defense. But I see a civil suit by the old man (or his family) waiting in the wings.

Looks like this may be the end of a long running feud......May be......

 

Prosecutor: Firefighter shot neighbor in self-defense

The neighbors have been in a long-running dispute. Keller and Weigle have clashed more than a dozen times since 2009, according to Johnson County Sheriff's Office reports.

The men argued about a range of things, including the location of a fence, Keller's dogs and Weigle's motorcycle.

On Sept. 9, 2011, officers arrested both men on battery charges after a fight. During the scuffle, Keller was stabbed in the arm and Weigle suffered cuts, scratches and bite wounds, according to a police report.

Agreed. But 4 shots of .45JPH in the chest almost guarantees your not gonna brush them off and walk away like nothing happened! Lol!

Agreed! 4 hits center of mass is typically unsurvivable.

EDIT: Unless it's a .25ACP :gsbrnint:

People are just too dam# eager to kill one another now-a-days...

What ever happend to love thy neighbor?

He was just a cranky old man. My uncle was like that. Always tellin me to get the hell out. But i eventually won him over by showing him i was interested in the same things he was, like gunsmithing and making wine...

Well apparently they've had a long history of problems over the years. If you look at @abigfatzero post above for more info.
