this is absolutely unacceptable and wrong. I feel so strongly about this case. Kranz was just trying to protect what is his.

That man had his property posted NO TRESPASSING! Those 2 came onto his property in the middle of the night! They deserved to be shot at! They could have backed their car out of the driveway and left....I believe in America you have the right to protect your life and property anyway you can. If you have a gun use it! After all criminals have guns! Its you or them! Hope the jurors have an equal opportunity presented to them....Too bad I wasn't on the jury! How do you compare this mans sentence to the one by good ole boy Thompson...nothing for sexual abuse of that young man.... He had a family...boohoo! Shame on that judge....That kid will play out his life thinking he didn't matter....

Yes you have a right to protect your property.But to shoot someone for pulling in your drive way is nuts.I agree about the sexual abuse.He should of got a hell of alot more time.NO you don't have the right to shoot people for no reason.He found that out the hard way.Bet he wishs he had not of done that now.YOU DON"T SHOOT PEOPLE FOR MAKING A MISTAKE.Sorry i don't see it your way.

Yeah but I am saying.... He didn't shoot those people. There is no way in heck there was possibly enough evidence to prove that Mr. Kranz shot anyone. There is way to much crime in this county with people getting way with it all the time either with a slap on the wrist or without police involvement at all. I live close enough to Mr. Kranz that if there was an shots taken I would have heard them. This is our railroading justice system at work yet again

I know Bill very well. I have been down his very long driveway and know that the two people invading his space had more then enough time to know they were headed down the wrong path. Bill has been robbed several times and was only protecting whats his!!! Stay Out means STAY OUT!!
It is so easy for people to judge others. If people would understand they do not have the right to make thier own rules maybe they wouldn't get shot at!!! READ THE SIGNS

steph, but they didn't get shot on Kranz's very long driveway. So sure obey and read the signs, but how about not wrongly accusing someone of a very serious crime?

I know a woman with 120+ pellets in her hand, arm, thigh chest and buttocks for over 20 years now and no problems. Her brother is a prominent surgeon and he's the one who was shooting at deer when she got some of the the spray. Also, her horse caught a few.
No big deal. Nothing you want, but not particularly a bad injury.

And there is no way you could unintentionally drive as far as Brandi did on Bill's land.

setitstraight33, there are facts in black and white that you are perhaps not aware of. His neighbors know.

Jeeze, it's been over 5 years since the incident. Why rehash it?

I will make it quite clear to you! I never said they didn't get shot! I am saying "THEY DIDN'T GET SHOT ON KRANZ PROPERTY OR BY WILLIAM KRANZ"!

No she didn't "let" anyone shoot her. No one is saying that. Jess26 is saying, she lives close enough that she and other neighbors would have heard the shots and there was no physical evidence to put them or their car on the Kranz property.

Someone shot at the CAR. Both occupants were drunk and on drugs and not sure where they were. The injuries were not bad, given what could have happened.

It was an ugly series of accidents that led an innocent man to prison, destroyed his business, completely disrupted his family and got your friends SLIGHTLY hurt. They'll all survive. You need to calm down.

Your language and accusations directed at other people on the forum make you less than creditable.

Billys a hot head and stepped way over the line if everyone shot at people that were drunk,on drugs, trespassing,and stealing billy would be the first person with pellets in his body. He's no angel his self.maybe he thought they were tryingto rip him off because he knows what he was doing when he was their age. Lucky for him he didnt come across someone as crazy as him.

Billy's more then a hot head his violent criminal carrier goes way back into the late 70s beating a young man nearly to death for taking a dirt bike that he stole himself. drugs pagans stolen cars on and on he finely got in something he couldn't get out of now he is paying for all the f... up stuff he has done for decades, don't think this was not part of the reason for the harsh sentence. Go off on someone in the joint billy and see how long you last PUNK!!

Actually, he was given the lightest sentence the judge could have imposed, so so much for your 'harsh' sentence theory.

Two things I know for sure, Bill is NOT a thief and he NEVER was affiliated with the Pagans.
