"So KR did exactly what YOU claim you would do, he helped his neighbor. Think about it."

Nope - If a neighbor's house was on fire, I'd call 911, then bang on doors and windows to try and alert them. But most certainly I would not attempt to enter the burning building. The professional LEO's, firefighters, first responders, etc., are far more qualified than me to render aid - that's what our tax dollars pay for.

I would NOT do what this kid did because I am neither qualified, nor willing to enter a combat situation, with a weapon. Like the neighbor's house on fire, law enforcement is a job for trained, educated professionals, not an amateur gun slinger who decided to play Rambo with a rifle - especially when it isn't his property.
