It is justified because stealing is always more wrong than killing a thief, he was justified. Had she just been straight forward and not try to steal she'd still be alive.
I think the only reason you are pleased she is dead is because she was a prostitute.

IF a pizza delivery guy comes to your house with $150 worth of pizzas (Here in Australia a large pizza costs roughly $15-25, more if you want special toppings), takes your money and then you open the boxes and realise that it was missing special toppings or anything else you specifically asked for, would you say that it gave you the right to KILL the pizza delivery guy? NO!

An why the heck are CIVILIANS allowed to have assault rifles?

If the pizza delivery person took my cash, and the pizza, that is the problem.

I don't agree that using a gun was the way to solve this issue. But, the prostitute was partially responsible, she should have returned the money.

I think one thing is what the law is and another thing what we think it should be(the moral part) We usually propose, keep or change laws according to what we think it's moral. Laws change and while "the law" now might allow this homocide to be unpunished, it doesn't mean it will be the law forever. No one an predict the future.

The future of this law will come down to whether we think personal property has the same or more value than human life.

Now stealing some personal property could cause death too. Imagine if someone stole millions of dollars from an African charity that was feeding children with malnutrition or giving free medicine to life threatening diseases.
