It's a shame a retired cop and his wife can not sleep in their own home! The guy did the right thing. He was protecting his family. He should be recognized for his support of his family!!! I have said it and I will say it again,I will shoot anyone who is a threat to myself or family, and protect anyone I see who in in deaths way! People need to learn to protect themselves. 911 is not always the best way to handle things. I am happy the Wise family is safe tonight. The person should have never taken the road that led him to catch Wise's bullets. This country needs more survivors not victims. I wonder what the response time was between the 1st complaint (just down the road from Wise) and the arrival of law enforcement. Time flies when you are having fun and it is real slow when you are waiting for someone to come to your aid. Sometimes, too slow.
