I see on our news that a couple people were charged after an accidental shooting during a citizens arrest somewhere in the southern states.
Are citizens allowed to make an arrest?With everyone armed seems it might be a bit dangerous,as per the outcome?
I see it has the race issue also,so probably be a lot of hype like the Michael Brown case.

Apparently, in Georgia it is legal. It is unfortunate what happen as Aubry was a good boy, according to is daddy. However, I don't know what he did for a living, if he was a good student, and he has a bit of a criminal record. Unclear at this point as to how to define what a good boy is? He probably wasn't a good boy. Time will tell. A smart boy would have let himself be arrested and let the cops sort out how good or bad he was. The citizen police could certainly be found guilty of manslaughter. IMHO

Even legal in Canada

To protect our own lives or the lives of innocents all most all of the states allow for some leniency when it comes to making a citizens arrest.
This about it, if I was a bad guy would I rather wait for the cops while a biz owner held me at gun point, or to just bleed out b/c that party just shot me

1. Citizen apprehends and detains someone he suspects has committed a crime.

2. Citizen intervenes to stop someone in the act of committing a crime.

I think 2 is okay, but 1 has some issues, and you could be committing a crime by attempting it, depending on the city and state.

That sounds like some slave sheepish stuff right there. So you're telling me if you walk by me while I'm at the gas station and pull a gun on you and start yelling to get on the ground you're going to comply because I'm making a citizens arrest?

No wonder we're losing our rights to the politicians....we're willing to give them up too easy.

There should be a lot of space between the decision to pull a "citizen's arrest" on an unarmed man and shooting said person. Anything a man on foot could steal from a house under construction isn't worth killing him and going to jail for.

He was killed because he attacked the guy attempting to make the citizen's arrest.


Eh...wot?

He got shot because he was trying to arm himself with the other mans weapon! Or do you contend he just accidentally fell into the fella as he was "JOGGING BY"?

No idea, I wasn't there. If an unarmed man on foot was messing around my property under construction and I wound up shooting him, I screwed up real, real bad. End of story.

I would like to know who, and what their motive is. Media has always been prone to some exaggeration to compete with each other. In the last ten years or so it has been nothing but a blatant agenda.

" People with money are bad and white people are all evil racists. Black racists killing or beating white people is to be ignored. Socialism is the only thing that will save us. Homosexuals are superior to heterosexuals and women are superior to men. Don't kill or eat animals. Humans are an invasive species."

Those ideas above are not just in the news but all over tv shows and movies.


If you watch the videos the guy who was shot attacked the guy with a shotgun and tried to take it from him. The guy that shot the guy grabbing at the shotgun was protecting the guy with the shotgun. I say everybody involved in that was short a few brain cells.


Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

What if that unarmed man attacked you and attempted to take your weapon? Which is what happened in this case. Maybe you should gather a little basic information before commenting? Are you aware there is a video of the shooting?
