Shooting some for anything is never justified

Wrong. If someone is posing a clear and present danger to me or my family, and if the setting is such that shooting him doesn't pose a danger to others in the vicinity, then shooting him would absolutely be justified.

Obviously that wasn't the case in this incident.

Same here. I've used an iPad and an Android tablet in the past, but my Surface Pro is far more useful because it runs Office and all my other Windows apps and yet is as portable as other tablets. There are only 2 problems with it: 1. The battery life is much shorter than an iPad or Android tablet. The Surface Pro 2 should be much better in that regard. 2. It costs too much. I got mine for free, but otherwise I wouldn't have bought it. Microsoft is NOT solving that problem with the Surface Pro 2; they're going with the same pricing as the original. It needs to be at least $200 less.

I have a nephew who has very poor judgement. The first time he asked to use one of our computers to check Facebook and his email I was very concerned that he would download malware. Then I remembered the Chromebook and handed it to him. Problem solved. It let him do everything he wanted to do and prevented him from causing any problems. Now every time he comes over he asks if he can borrow "that cool laptop that goes directly to the browser".

1 1 was a race-horse, 2 2 was 1 2. When 1 1 1 1 race, 2 2 1 1 2.
