The "victim" in this case was NOT David Herman. The true Victim was the one the Tribune called "the shooter." The Victim who was questioned and released by the police, was later identified as 48 year-old Christopher Leppert. Herman attacked Leppert, then Leppert retreated from the apartment building to his own car. Herman then went into Leppert's car to attack him again. Leppert then legally defended himself with a gun for which he was legally allowed to carry as he had a Permit to Carry issued by the local Sheriff. Do people not have the right to defend themselves? Does the Tribune have to mislable the people in this case simply because the Victim defended himself with a gun? Ok, maybe in Chicago people are supposed to just allow themselves to be killed. But not in Iowa.
