#1 That's what happens when you repeal the Rule of Law.

#2 The opposite of rule by law is judgement by lynch mob. Who was it that said we want police and courts, because that’s all that protects criminals from their victims?

#3 While I prefer Mad Max justice to courts, a catalytic converter, or even a whole vehicle seems too much to kill a man over.

#5 If I understand, catalytic converter theft is an absolute plague right now, and law enforcement overall doesn't seem very interested in it.

Campbell should have just blamed the truck. "Yeah, we saw the truck dragging something, but NOBODY WAS DRIVING!"

Surprised they even found a witness. I resident that aware at 4am is a neighborhood getting targeted.

#9 Some Damn good ears here.
"...3:45 a.m. Saturday. Michael Scott Campbell, 54, told Lakewood police that he was sleeping and roused by someone trying to steal the car part...."The report said the shooting occurred in a parking lot of a business...."

So the guy lives and sleeps in a room near a Business Parking lot and despite usual noise this guy heard the thug trying to steal parts?

I'll say it again ...
Some Damn good ears here.

#10 Stealing a catalytic converter involves cutting through two metal exhaust pipes. You could do it slowly with a hacksaw, but a battery-powered angle grinder or sawzall is a whole lot quicker. Either way is pretty noisy. And a bit unusual at 4am.

#12 Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to vaporize materials, resulting in a cut edge. While typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, is now used by schools, small businesses, and hobbyists. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics.

#13 Some Damn good ears here. According to other news reports, Campbell was sleeping in the truck being targeted by the would-be thief. The noise at that distance would have awakened nearly anybody.
