What would you do?

A father in Georgia shot a man who followed his daughters home from the store and passed twice in front of his house.

This is kind of a dilemma.

What would you do? The guy should've called the police as soon as his daughters called him, I guess. But when someone's threatening your children, there's not a whole lot of "guesswork" about what you do.

First, what IDIOT follows a car of teenage girls home, regardless of how irritated he may be and however stupid the teenage girls were being?

Second, what IDIOT sees a dad with a gun waiting in the driveway and drives past the house AGAIN?

The father is claiming self-defense. (It would probably be more "other-defense," actually.)

I'm kind of from the school of thought that if someone's threatening your children, you protect your children first. Idiots following them home second.

I'm also from the school of thought of, "did you have to kill him?"

I mean, at first glance here, it sounds like the dad has a decent case, and they live in the South, after all. It'll be interesting to see how this all works out!
