Was This Louisiana Shooting Justified, or Was It a Case of Vigilante Justice? [VIDEO]

Do you think that this Louisiana shooting of a kidnapper by a man with a concealed carry permit was justified, or was it just a case of vigilante justice?

When Bethany Arcenaux disappeared, police in Lafayette Parish, Louisiana immediately suspected that her ex-boyfriend was responsible and began searching for her.

The next day, their suspicions were founded when her cousin, who holds a concealed carry license, found her held hostage by the ex-boyfriend and shot him.

Watch the video and decide: were his actions justified, or were they just an example of vigilante justice?

Clearly, the police did not think that the cousin was wrong in his actions as they have declined to press charges against him.

From the video, it doesn’t sound like the boyfriend was a stand-up guy either. Fortunately, the actions of Bethany’s cousin helped bring this terrible string of events to an end and may well have saved her life.
