I'm glad that Mr. Leatherman was not seriously injured, but why do people think they can and should settle disputes (in particular this one where he had no idea what was going on) with lethal weapons.

I guess in the end, he got what he deserved!

Apparently Mr. Leatherman didn't know how to use a hand gun, and got a bit of payback for his ignorance. Maybe he should take a firearms saftey course? Then again that might make him more dangerous.

Noted, thanks Cate.

That's worse than shooting yourself in the foot! lol Guns can be dangerous when in the wrong hands. Arizona is a right to bear arms state. BTW Cate, he wasn't arrested hon, the guy that caused the disturbance was. Thanks for the entertainment :-)

1 he did NOT go into this & settle any dispute,his was a seperate incedent,in same genral area,&time.
2 Haveing had previous knowelge of this same indavial,he did have probablae cause to sespect something not only wrong,from plain sight view,but that would become worse.
3 That non friend,drunk,previously& now again violent indvual did go to& show up at both the hospital & this persons specifc area
4 there is more than enough evidenace to belive that person is a imminate danger to both the hospitalized person specificaly& the general public
5 that might be construde as stalking
6 he's drunk period
7 he's dunk in public
8 He is NOT covered under& this is obvious,from all this,under second admendment
9 slander of second admendment is obvious& slander of anything is never justifyed.
10 all people do have the right to their own opion-they do not have the right,to 1 lie,2 decive,3 force their opion on others
11 Mr. patrick Cardwell-you are now red flagged-soemthing i have almost never done,but this is justifyed-others,do take heed,how one goes about their bussness.
