So you are advocating bringing a whistle to a gun fight!
You have no idea what they would have done had he yelled, they could have rushed him and choked him to death, or ran and got a knife and came back and slit his throat and cut his eyes out or they could have fired their own weapons at him and blown his face off!

Whether they had a gun, knive or very sharp pencil is not the point. The point is they did not belong there, and the homeowner has to prepare based on the assumption that they are armed, not that they are not.

Just because you like to play armchair jury by looking back with hindsight and give criminals every benefit does not mean the homeowner was wrong in shooting intruders.

Just because you have a hard-on for living in the Wild West doesn't make it right. A homeowner has a right to defend himself and his property, yes. This guy went well beyond that. He lit a cigarette with a flamethrower. If he had yelled they probably would have taken off. He had his gun drawn and had taken aim, so if they kept coming he was ready. He didn't even try anything short of killing them. He's an ahole and a murderer and it takes a small, small mind to not see that.

NOOOOOOO, Race, he should leave a sign to tell the thieves when he is home or not. Maybe he could have a little occupancy thingy on his front door like they have in airplane bathrooms. When it is green, that way they will know when it is safe to break in and won't get hurt. We wouldn't want them getting hurt, now would we. He should also make sure the house is clean and no objects are on the floor that could cause them to trip and hurt themselves when they break in.
I'm sending this post and your other one to the lab to be tested for hyperbolic steroids.

I don't think anyone is playing "armchair jury". The man was charged with murder. Obviously, the cops thought he broke a few laws.

And what's this "give criminals every benefit" crap? One was lying in a pool of blood when shot again to kill 'em.

And then leave the bodies there and not call the police?

Seriously, put yourself in that basement and you shot them dead. Oh, I believe you would shoot them 4-5 times after they're dead -- I've got that part. Now, you shoot the teenagers dead, now what would you do? Go upstairs and have a beer?

If someone is breaking into my house, I'm gonna grab my gun before I grab my phone. I have every right to defend my home, and when seconds count, police are only minutes away.

I came home on a Friday and knew someone had been in my house, a safe was left in the middle of the floor and lights were left on. I changed the locks the next day (they had used a key.)

I considered taking Monday off work to "guard" my house. I would have parked the car down the street and made it look like I wasn't home. And if someone broke in, I would have blown his fking head off.

But I didn't.

Instead I came home from work and my door was kicked in and the safe and TV were gone.

The perpetrators were never caught and I've regretted NOT staying home ever since.

It is not a mistake I will make again if I suspect I'll be robbed on a certain day.

The ONLY that guy did wrong was put the bodies in the shed and wait to call the authorities. I fully support everything else he did. You are not required to make it LOOK like you are home, and breaking into someone's house warrants a death sentence.

I am not defending the kill shots, only saying that I can see it from his side. He went overboard, but I dont believe he knew that at the exact moment. Maybe he did later though. And it was the kill shots that he is being charged with.

No, I would not shoot them 4 or 5 times after they were dead, but I would shoot them 4 or 5 times to make sure they would would no longer be a threat to me.
And yes, I probably would get a beer, after all it's gonna be a long night answering questions with the cops.

Sam said that if the guy yelled boo, the criminals would have run away, that is giving them the "benefit crap"

Yes, that's exactly what I am advocating. As usual, your comprehension and insight are a spectacle to behold. I'd elaborate on my response, but I don't want to cut into your waxing-your-Corvette-and-jerki ng-off-to-Guns-and-Ammo time.

Boy Toj, you sure are naive. That might not have been blood, it might have been ketchup spread by the intruder to lull the homeowner into a false sense of security so she could get up and inject him with the Ebola virus when he wasn't looking. And he had to shoot them after they were dead because he had to use silver bullets in case they were vampires. It would all be very clear if you'd just open your eyes.

You would do no such thing. You'd piss yourself and go hide in a closet.

Nice to see Sam and Toj are doing their part to further the pussification of America.

Its this same, "awwww, poor little criminal ... they can't be harmed ... we must do everything to protect them and nurture them" mentality that has lead to 20 some million illegals overrunning our country.

I don't "jerk off," I pet the kitty. And if I described what I think about you'd probably be embarrassed to stand up for about an hour.
