    Armed, unlawful breaking and entering, yep he was sure asking for it. From the article, it appears the shooting was justified, but then I'm not the grand jury.

    So two dirt bags are sitting in car sippin and sniffin, and just for some excitement they decided to not play Russian Roulette, but instead a quick round of :

    Are The Occupants Armed and Will They Use It.

    You get one turn to pick a residence, points scored if you smash the door down and go in loud. Crawl silently through a window and points are deducted.

    The occupant is unarmed or unwilling - Bingo...take what you want.

    Occupant is armed, in practice, and on plan - Boom... end of game.

    ...move on, nothin to see here.

    I'm reasonably sure it will be awhile before he tries that again.

    Reasonable Action

    Seems like a lawful action to prevent harm coming to yourself and your family. If I had a wife and a 15 month old son in that situation, I would have taken the same action.

    I wonder why the knucklehead insisted on including their street address in the article?

    What benefit to journalistic integrity is there in posting this for the world to see? Does pointing out the location of the family somehow impact the credibility of the writer??

    I'd certainly hope so. Otherwise they'd be directing angry friends 'n family of the perps onto these poor people for no reason at all.

    Cavalry... would you go to that address and start any trouble? I know I sure wouldn't. ;)

    Well it seems the news has had a few black eyes on factual information the last couple days. Maybe street adresses are easy things to backup since they exsist...unlike digital images in photoshop... :evil:

    But I have noticed in a lot of news stories involving firearms that the addresses get stuck in there for some reason. :scrutiny:

    The survivor should be charged with First Degree Murder. Hey, it's a homicide during the commission of a burglary. Doesn't matter that the deceased was an accomplice. That just makes it ironic. Ahh.... doesn't this prove that there is a God? :D

    Gary, that's right! I forgot all about that until you mentioned it just now. I watched this play out in a video a few years ago where the gunman was shot and killed, but his unarmed accomplice was not shot at. He surrendered to the store owner, was charged with 1st degree murder, but upon prosecution and conviction it was reduced to 2nd degree. Still not too bad - 25 to life.
