177. Won't know until the trial whether the jury/judge believes that
they attempted to steal the bay of hay at gunpoint. One side seems to say no, the other yes. But, back to your assertion that shooting at fleeing felons is ok, they weren't fleeing felons so no reason to shoot at them for that and the fact that he scared them off prevented them from absconding with his property so no reason to shoot then, either.

Yes, they were attempting to make off with a bale of hay they didn't own, for whatever reason, and I'm sure if caught (maybe getting their license number would have helped instead of trying to hit the truck with a bullet) they would have gotten a more appropriate punishment then death. And if they didn't get caught, I would like to think they would have learned a valuable lesson most of us who end of doing stupid things when that age learn on our path to maturity.
