Lose, lose?

Reasonably good coverage of a citizen defense story. Even though the father didn’t intend on killing the perp (or so it seems), it appears law enforcement at least acknowledges that deadly force was justified. But I take issue with the victim’s statement that it was a “lose-lose” situation. Yes, the perp and his family lost. But the victimized family, without a doubt, won. Emotional trauma? Sure. A little sadness at taking a human life, possibly for the first time? Absolutely. But, Mr. McNally, you won. You won your daughter’s life and likely your own as well. And, you won your dignity.
