Although most, if not all, Muslim countries don't do it any more, it remains the punishment for theft under the following conditions:

1- The stolen property should be something of worth.
2- The value of the stolen property should be above a certain limit.
3- The stolen property should have been taken from a place where it had been put away.
4- The theft itself has to be proven, either by the testimony of two qualified witnesses or by the confession of the thief twice.
5- The person from whom the property was stolen has to ask for it back; if he does not, then (the thief’s) hand does not have to be cut off.

It does not matter if the shooter is liberal or conservative. Fact is, its wrong to shoot someone in the back, if they were running away and would not heed a warning shot then shoot em in the legs.

I have to admit though that this will act as a deterent for thieves, but next time they will come armed and an innocent person will get killed. You are only teaching crooks to be smarter and not detering them at all.

so NOT shooting them would have done what to deter them from coming back?

I'll tell you, nothing. they would've realized that the area was easy pickings and come back for more, maybe even try other houses.

Joe did the right thing. he made it so they will think twice before robbing a house in his neighborhood again.

that's the ^deterent you want. not the other way around.

Dont you think a shot to the legs and bring em down would have the same effect? Do we have to go gun crazy and start killing thieves?

They did not commit rape nor murder so why kill them? I think you are a little over the top on this one. Behaviour like this will bring a stronger more intelligent piece of shit onto the street, and they will be armed and ready to kill. Your thinking is wrong, we must protect ourselves YES, but the punishment must meet the crime level.

Otherwise why have laws at all. Lets go back to the days of the wild west

1. Liberals are usualy city nerds that were raised only by a mother. They never playes with water guns.
2. Doctors are more dangerous then guns.

There are stranger correlations out there. For example: Guns v. Doctors

Doctors:
A) The number of doctors in the U.S. is 700,000
(B) Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year are 120,000
(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 17.14%
(Statistics courtesy of the U.S.Dept of Health & Human Services)

Guns:
(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000 (yes that's 80 million)
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.001875%
(Statistics courtesy of the FBI)

So statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. Remember, guns don't kill people, doctors do.

FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.

I think in all totality one of the worst things you can do as a man is shoot another man in the back period.

I am more then willing to protect my love ones, but thats where it stops. I have been in the position where some one broke into my apartment building and pulled out a gun. I pulled out the double barrow shotty from the couch and aimed that shit right at him and warned him I got family in this apartment and if he took another step both barrows will go off leaving him with no face. He had a measly 22 Cal. He then started to walk backwards and never ever returned to the building.

I never had to pull the trigger and the guy had his gun drawn. He was in my home with family. I gave him a warning and he headed it.

This is a case of COLD BLOOD MURDER and he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent. The bottom line is he took it upon his self to confront these guys even after being warned and to shoot two people in the back, means these guys saw the gun he had and started running away, meaning he accomplished his goal of protecting, and instilling fare. The rest was premeditated and deliberately violent in the sense of word.

In this instant a prosecution has way more then enough to go after this guy. I would be 100% on his side if the thieves started coming towards his house, because I have been through it and I was prepared to pull the trigger to protect my family, but they where leaving and cops where on their way.
