Police said that the man, identified only as Peter, followed the suspects through a neighborhood and eventually caught up with them. He then rolled his Hummer over their car. Two of the suspects were taken to the hospital in critical condition. The two other suspects managed to get away but police later caught them as well. It is not known if Peter will face charges.

This demonstrates very clearly why military-style assault vehicles shouldn't be in the hands of civilians! Poor, mistreated robber! /waves at Imbroglio

Bravo! That made my day. I only pray he doesn't go to jail. But just think how much more time he would receive if he cased after them, stopped next to them at a red light, and openned up with an AR, critically injuring those two.

And he's going to get sued and probably lose.

At least it didn't happen in Kali, so he's still got half a chance. Too bad they don't have a bigger picture than that.

He should have kept on going after making a second pass over the vehicle to take out any survivors. Nobody would have caught him as they'd all be looking for a stray TANK... I hope the guy gets no punishment and instead gets a commendation. And I hope the shitbags in the car get land...small plots, about eight feet by three. CJ

Think about what would have happened if he had even done a 'Blackhawk Down' and put a round or two through their engine... It would have recieved totally different coverage... The poll numbers would probably be the same (Remember: the average American thinks it's still legal to shoot robbers/burglars just for trying to steal)...
