From what I have seen. He displayed remarkable maturity, weapons handling in a extremely dangerous situation. While it would have been better if he was not there. That goes 10x for those attacking him. He asked people not to burn down a business. (After cleaning up graffiti) he assisted in putting out a arson fire. When threatened he did not resort to deadly force. He ran. It wasn’t until partly cornered, hearing a gunshot behind him he responded with deadly force. He then called a Police Officer. (Not 911 so there he made a mistake) then again 911 would be a PITA to deal with. (See below)I think the age point is he probably doesn't have experience or the maturity to handle a gun in a difficult situation. It was stupid to put him in that position.
Personally, I think it's dumb to carry a weapon to a riot and get involved in a fight. I'd just stay away.
I want video of protestors being ***holes. Not conservatives. You know how the press will play that. Any excuse to attack the right, and ignore the left.
Mob threatens. He must leave the injured guy and run. (He could have used gun to protect himself from the mob, some who were armed, guns in hand)
He fell, was attacked by multiple attackers, some armed with guns, skateboard, boots, unknown. After shooting IIRC skateboard attacker he turns to armed with gun attacker. Who stops, acts like he is surrendering. Kyle takes muzzle off him to check other threats. The guy renews attack. Kyle almost “disarms” him. I hope I do that well. Deadly threat, lethal force, not lethal force, lethal force. IMO if he shot attacker with the pistol who was starting to signal “I give up”. IMO reasonable shot. (We cant expect a civilian heck even Police to switch back so quickly)
Imagine calling 911. Explaining why you shot someone, running away...
