Yes, I know; they even adopted Christianity as state religion instead.

it is an outrage that the jeweler is being kept. he should be let free right away and it is a shame that he didnt shoot the other thief as well. If I were him I would have shot them both in the head a few times to make sure they are dead meat

The jeweler is free, wearing an electronic tag.
If you were him, you would be jailed and I would offer you some oranges to sweeten the 20 years of prison you would be sentenced at

I hope the jeweller will be found not guilty.

He didn't act according to the law, apparently, but one can understand the reaction.

Is your hope is that many other peoples see a discharge as giving the right of retaliation ?
I don't want that, I don't want to see peoples running in the streets and firing at their attackers.
I would condemn him to a heavy suspended sentence.

Your wishes are already granted: in France, criminals have more rights than law-abiding citizen.

I agree with you there rio or whatever your real name is. But the political situation is very explosive in France.. Le Pen is second in many polls... The day will come when people of the kind of donpanic will be heavily punished.

The jeweler did break laws by retaliating at an agressor by killing him out of emergent danger, and you give him more rights than any ordinary citizen have. Your stance defy any logic.
I'm more logic, with a 5 or 10 years prison suspended penalty, the jeweler doesn't go to jail, if he respects the laws during that time.

I tend to agree with that, although I am sure the law won't condone chasing a robber in the street.
stupid wimps like you would let them run away. One shot dead is a victory for Darwin, especially if he had not yet had children.

In the USA, you can even be a vigilante like Charles Bronson in Death Wish and get away with murder too. Recently George Zimmerman was found not guilty after killing a black yound man with his gun.

How convenient that you left out the part where Zimmerman killed the young gangsta wannabe AFTER that thug was pounding Zimmerman's head into a concrete sidewalk. But don't let things like FACTS get in the way of your bullshit.

yes I got a bit carried away. But I still think you should be allowed to shoot to kill when a burglar enters your property.

The criminals’ first mistake was picking up a firearm, the second mistake was pointing it at someone with malice and the third mistake was robbing an armed merchant. In USA, three strikes and you are out, permanently. The parents can only cry and say, "My poor baby is dead" and "it is your entire fault”!
If the merchant let himself be robbed with no recrimination, then he would be a target for all criminals looking to make quick money. His life would be ruined because his livelihood would be taken from him. The merchants’ final choice would be whose life would be ruined, the criminal or the merchant?
Choose wisely.
