    Here's the thing though, because of the low frequency of the sound of the rotor airfoils, it's harder to pinpoint the location of helicopters.

    Saving a loved one is not breaking the law, so no.

    i live in a very flat area - 180 degrees in front of me is flat water for a mile, with mostly flat farmland for miles and miles

    pretty much the same behind me

    and sound carries a long way up here - i can hear the trains on the Canadian mainland with my doors closed and the place shut up tight - that's several miles away, across land and water

    TRUST
    is a fragile thing.

    Easy to break, Easy to lose
    and one of the hardest things to
    ever get back.

    Then it is probably good not to use deadly force. I am not sure of your point or what you are relating it to.

    I would do most anything to save anyone's life, a loved one or a stranger. If they were in imminent danger I'd do it without thinking, again: most anything to prevent their harm, including putting my own life at risk by confronting or attacking their attacker. It isn't the object of the law to prevent good but rather to be a guideline for men to not only be good but to be violated when necessary to keep the life, liberty or pursuit of happiness of every American (or visitor to our great country). We don't hesitate to protect our own children and those in need are just as much in our charge as our own children: if we can do something to protect them we need to do it. That's what good Samaritan's are: protectors of strangers and not just loved ones. Christians ought to be even better than the Good Samaritan in the proverb, we ought to be about praying for everyone on the earth, anyone in any office of authority first, such that every man might live in peace and worship God in whatever way he deems fit. It's our duty to be like Jesus, Who 'ever liveth to make intercession for the saints.' We need to not only intervene in tight situations and try to help the victims but we also need to pray for the soul of the criminal (sorry: suspect) that perpetrated the crime (allegedly). Being selfish or spiteful has no place in a Christian's life.
