The U.S. should consider waiving diplomatic immunity if there is evidence this guy was reckless and attacked another vehicle without provocation.

But what WAS his provocation anyway?

Some car was following him for hours?

He should have considered the possibility that they were journalists, counter-intelligence, or others besides just the obvious possibilities that they were a robbing / kidnapping crew.

The car cut him off in traffic? Okay, that's enough for me. When visibly armed men follow a car for a long time and then force that car off the road or block it in, in Pakistan or some similar armpit of the world, it seems fair to assume that a murder / kidnapping is about to take place.

Question: What if this happened in the United States, and the armed citizen jumped out of his car faster than the other guys as soon as they emerge, openly armed, from their big black SUV and the armed citizen filled that other vehicle with lead, killing what turned out to be members of a local police agency that had a reasonable but false suspicion the citizen was up to no good? The cops' buddies would say that how they followed and stopped the suspect was quite common and approved-of by every one of the higher-ups, from the Chief to the Sheriff to the Mayor.

Well if that guy survived the encounter and had diplomatic immunity he would be on the next plane out of the country. Oh the US might try and put pressure on his home country to revoke his diplomatic status but most likely we would wind up turning him loose. If it was me or you we would have a tough legal fight ahead of us.

Truth is this guy is most likely a spy. Average Diplomats don't routinely carry guns, except the CIA guys etc. at the embassy. Getting caught carrying gun can get you declared persona non grata and a plane ticket home.
