Whoa, owned Seagal-style. Seriously, this is something that rather happens in movies ("He kicked the shotgun out of one attacker’s hands").

Well, I think it's good to hear that the marine won't be charged. Over here, the robbers could sue you and win :vikki: .

Mr. MattDid you fail to see the word 'shotgun' in the news article? When you have a shotgun levelled at you, there's no such thing as 'unnecessary force'.

I did but I'm just saying it would be looked into to see A) if there was indeed a shot gun B) If it was a real one and not a toy C)Other circumstances. The police always has to verify to make sure no unnecessary force was used. In this case that probably would be quickly done though yes. ;)

Even though if the shotgun was a replica, I still wouldn't have cared. I mean, if you only think that it's a real shotgun, I would use force. Doesn't matter wether it is one or not. (Now, don't go bashing into 6-year olds with toy-pistols, that's not what I meant :p)

Man, thats some harsh luck for the girl.

At least the guy isnt getting charged - he was acting in self defence after all.

Doesn't matter if it was a toy or not, the intent was there, how could you possibly tell.

And I'm pretty sure the police could quickly tell if there was or wasn't a shotgun at the scene of the crime :lol:

What? It doesn't matter whether it was a real gun or not, when a weapon fake or not is pointed at someone the level of force they should use is of the same level as if that weapon was real, because there's no real way they can be relied upon to tell. Especially not in the heat of the moment. Fake or real, the amount of necessary force remains the same.

If someone pointed a gun at me I would do everything I could to protect myslef; even if it meant killing them. The problem is that in my country, I'd be up for murder/manslaughter for defending myself.

He stabbed a lady. That's not nice.
