I will never forget the incident in Texas that made international news when the drunk Japanese student was harrassing the Texas family and was shot. I totally sympathised with the man and his family that felt he had to shoot the student. He gave plenty of warnings with possibly threatening respones from the student while the homeowner's family was close behind him. It made international news because, as it truned out, the student did not know English and the Japanes did not feel that it was justified (after all, he was such a good kid and an A student
). The guy had no idea what the student would do to his family, and the student should have realised that a gun pointed at you by a guy who is yelling in a threatenning manner for a few minutes means that you run or surrender. Even if he was drunk and didn't understand English, the student should have stopped what he was doing.
