I thought the same thing. I'm sure he didn't feel his life was in danger As they drove away.

It must have been really good beer for that agent to chase after them and shoot. lol
This was a FED, they have different procedures, they deal with homeland security and any breach of their home is a security breach.
Hope he got his beer back.

That's right! Trigger happy! Can you believe an FBI agent assaulted in his garage in the middle of the night by three hooded men would ever reach for his weapon???Even after he identified himself as the FBI and one decided to attack him and the other two tried to run him over in their get away vehicle? Shame on him for defending himself and HIS PROPERTY where his FAMILY was in the house sleeping. Leave it to the press and the hopeless defense attorney without a leg to stand on due to all the evidence against these intelligent robbers, who all have prior jail records, to sell this story as a beer heist! Way to go LA Times!!

Years ago when my house was broken into in the middle of the night while I was sleeping, I was not concerned with "why" the person was in my house nor did I care to ask. The last time I checked, suspects don’t exactly come with a flashing neon sign strapped to their chests which state their intentions. If a person is going to trespass on my property, then that person should be willing to deal with what I will do to protect my family, which doesn’t involve asking the person what their intentions are. If you are trespassing on my property then you just might run the risk of getting shot . This rather nonfactual article seems more reminiscent of a gossip column since very few facts can be found. I find it entertaining that because the suspects were only after “beer”(which is false – as any little bit of good research would prove), that somehow makes it okay to enter a person’s garage while actively trying to break into the door that leads in to that persons house, after all they only want “beer.” I know this is becoming a foreign concept in our country but there are consequences for ones actions and I refuse to minimize (as most of you are doing) the actions the suspects took for WHATEVER the reason and I fully support the actions of the FBI agent.

Most people take issue with someone firing at people who are running away and no longer pose a threat. Firing a gun puts people other than these thieves in harms way. I am not a protector or defendant of criminals in any way. Attempting to shoot criminals in the back as they run may be a little excessive though. Generally speaking, police don't fire at people as they run away unless there is an immediate threat?(correct me if im wrong).

Trigger happy? Maybe if the consequences for stealing were the potential for being shot at, folks would think twice whether they attempt to steal beer, steal ammunition or guns, abduct a child, or anything else these two were considering doing at 2:00 a.m. in someone's house other than their own.

Very stupid person right here. Not all of them have prior jail records. You don't even know the entire story! Do your research before you judge!
