When is it right to shoot a kidnapper?
Video of an Albuquerque LEO shooting and killing a kidnapper has been released by the Albuquerque Police Department.
I agree with the APD that the cop did the right thing. As if my opinion matters.
What I would like to point out, though, is that it would have still been the right thing to do if the kidnapped woman had shot her attacker herself, had she been in possession of a gun ("legally" or not) instead of a cellphone.
It would have still been the right thing to do if some random passerby had shot the kidnapper if the situation had become evident. Whether the defender had State permission for the gun used in defense of life or not.
And, probably not popular, but true nonetheless, it would have still been the right thing (regardless of The State's response) had the kidnapper been a LEO "just doing his job", if that job included "arresting" a person doing something that is not wrong - is not causing harm to any other person- but just "illegal". No double standards.
