    NH Man Who Fired Warning Shot At Robber Gets Nationwide Support « CBS Boston

    He fired a warning shot into the ground.

    The DA would be a fool to prosecute this guy.
    He may decide to run for office (just kidding).


    The poor guy is saying all the right things.
    If this was the people republic of Cambridge, he would be screwed.
    Lucky for him he did this in New Hampshire.

    The DA will be making a big mistake if he decides to prosecute this

    Guns are for imminent threats, not for fleeing criminals. He fired into the ground, so to an extent there's no harm; but his action was not right.

    He also, according to police, hunted the guy for a half an hour without calling the police.

    And "firing into the ground" can still cause harm.....does the word "ricochet" mean anything?

    The guy was wrong for taking the law into his own hands. It could have ended badly. Nonetheless, I think he's already had his punishment during this waiting period. I hope he's not prosecuted.

    People are getting fed up, it's a terrible feeling to have your own private little world invaded and violated by a filthy scumsucking swine criminal, GOOD FOR HIM FOR TRACKING THE VERMIN DOWN.

    He should be rewarded with a trip to Disneyland and a brand new "GLOCK"

    New Hampshire is "gun country" the retard criminals should prowl elsewhere.

    I think it really depends on the details of what happened here. Tracking him down for a half hour -- does that mean he was getting ready to rob another house, or hiding in the neighborhood, or that Fleming hopped into his car and followed him to his home or a bar or store?

    Fleming's actions may have been both brave and foolhardy -- neither is what would matter to me in terms of looking at the relevant laws and possible criminal charges. Either way, I'd lean against charging him, unless his actions veered so far away from self-defense or bringing the perpetrator to justice, and towards vigilantism endangering others, that it can't be ignored.

    More detailed information here:

    Man said he fired to stop burglar, now faces felony charges | New Hampshire NEWS03

    Apparently he found his own house had been robbed, grabbed his gun and spotted a man with a backpack walking down the road.

    Then he says he heard a crash and saw the same guy coming out of his neighbor's window. (No explanation of how he lost sight of him in between times however.)

    He says he didn't try to stop the man just fired his gun into the ground so the man would take him seriously.

    He then says he searched the guy's backpack (after some of his neighbors were restraining the guy) and found some of his belongings inside of it.

    It gets a little sticky here when we find out the guy had a broken heel whiich he sustained jumping out of the shooter's second story window.

    I have to question how he was climbing through another window and burgling another home with a broken foot and how did the shooter-dude manage to lose sight of a limping, drug impaired idiot in between burgleries?

    Methinks there might be more to this story than meets the eye.

    Flemming should have gunned down that loser POS and saved the rest of society from his presence. If he didn't want to waste a bullet, he should have run him down with his car like road kill. With a broken heal he'd be easy hamburger. That scumbag theif has a rap sheet of burglaries and crime. Put a bullet in him, and call it a day. The world would be a better place without him.

    Castle law please.

    We used to have penal colonies as the solution for these types. However we overpopulated the planet and used up all the land that was really viable. We got Siberia, various deserts and deep uncharted rain forests, but I think people would bi*ch and say those were "cruel and unusual" punishments.
