I agree. One shouldn't have to take ANY risk whatsoever, no matter how minute, that one could be harmed by folks who break into your home. Even if you think someone is incapacitated what's to say they don't come to momentarily and pull a gun and shoot you. And if I were his lawyer I would argue that and also argue that he had no idea how many folks were involved. How is he to know there's not a third or a fourth person waiting upstairs for him. Should he really have to take a chance, leave one of them alive, risk that there are more people upstairs, and also face the risk that one of the two he thought were incapacitated might come to, in his own home?<quoted text>I'm a firm believer that if you make the decision to break into someone's home with the intent of robbing them, you've made the decision to deserve whatever comes your way.
He should have just killed them right away. Bang bang. One to take em down, one to the head to finish em off, in quick succession. He would have been fine or pumped them with so much lead as they came down the stairs that there is no way they would survive.
I have zero sympathy for those kids, but he will likely go to jail for how he went about it. It was too drawn out.
IMO, two less dirt bags on the earth is something to be celebrated.
