  1. I do not know all of the facts in this case,but if it had been me I would have handled the situation differently.In California a repossession has occurred when the collateral is entered.The question in my mind is at what point did the woman object? Ken

  2. No charges should’ve been filed against the shooter.

    It appears as though the repossessor lost his cool. The evidence showed he was approached by the woman, the woman protested the attempted repossession and he was required by law to retreat and instead, he chose to drive away thinking he’d get away. After the woman jumped on, he still kept going and was shot after driving away with the woman on his hood. There’s not a man out there that wouldn’t protect his family coming outside without knowing what’s going on but hearing her scream and seeing her on the hood….. Of course, it raises the question if he was shooting at the repossessor or his wife, few people would take such a shot and risk her injury but clearly his was a good marksmen.

    I wouldn’t normally post a thought about something like this but I believe industry leaders must communicate to repossessors that leaving the car at any sign of trouble is absolutely necessary to avoid not only tragic situations but law suits as well. This incident could’ve been easily avoided.

    The story is tragic. I hope he comes through this and lives a long life. My hopes and prayers go out to the family.
