Frontier justice on gas


A Rudy man shot someone he says he saw stealing gasoline from a parked car Sunday night. I don't think the law gives you freedom to shoot gas siphoners, not even at $4 a gallon. But this is western Arkansas .... (Thought: If the sharpshooter could shoot to kill with impunity -- so far the man has survived his wounds, however -- perhaps we are not far from the return of necktie parties on the range.) Whatever else, police are already quite clear that the alleged gas thief will be charged.
