I know some people are anti 'The Rich', i.e. the gun wielding grouse shooters. But to link people who shoot for sport to someone who (from the comments on here) is a questionable character and probably a drug dealer/criminal is absolutely pathetic.
He was charged and acquitted with murder and was carrying a gun. In my life I have never felt the need to carry a gun. How many on here have? Surely that must say a lot about the type of person he was.
It's the typical response of "Oh look. The police shot someone. Aren't they brutal". Then, next week if we're subjected to a terrorist attack (I'm not saying for one moment he was), then the same would be saying "why didn't the police/authorities do something about it?".
Sometime, to protect the general public, some of the more 'colourful' characters may end up as victims too - but don't confuse them with sweet, innocent people.
