Since we don’t really have a law that provides a satisfactory outcome in such cases, he didn’t take the law into his own hands.

re: “Since we don’t really have a law that provides a satisfactory outcome in such cases, he didn’t take the law into his own hands.”

We DON’T have a law that provides a satisfactory outcome in such cases?? What does that mean?

I am totally empathetic to this father, and would have no problem letting him off with a very light sentence or medical/mental probation for awhile, but there is no doubt, assuming he did shoot the driver, that if he did so, he committed some degree of murder - we do have laws against murder - right? He did decide that the driver should die, he shot him, so, the father did take the law into his own hands in delivering what he thought was the appropriate sentence.

I think that’s the very definition of “taking the law into one’s own hands”.
