The owner, Anthony Disanto, arrived home Sunday and found a newer model VW parked in the driveway of his home on the 2800th block of 26th Ave. Dr. W.

As a burglary suspect emerged from the home, Disanto approached him with his gun.

The suspect got into his car, and as he drove away, he hit one of the victim’s vehicles.

Fleeing Suspects

It is not a good idea to shoot a fleeing suspect. I know that cops and others on TV do it all the time, but in real life, it's a bad idea. In real life, if a cop did that, we'd be watching the video and condemning him for excessive force.

What if someone had been sitting in the neighbor's car that was hit? As it is, the shooter will have to repair the neighbor's car.

Shooting someone in the back is enough to turn a jury against one. I hope he wasn't aiming to do that, but it must have been a pretty bad neighborhood that this senior was so scared he was prepared to shoot even someone who is fleeing. Panic and guns: not a good combo.
