I agree with your assessment, fwiw.
When the dust settles, this scenario will help define the parameters of the Community Watch organizations. It needs to be done; this will let everybody know where they stand. Gangstas who cruise looking for prey...and lawfully-armed folk who pre-emptively profile and confront em'.
That should and will be where this thing goes.
