You 2 make me sick. Its sad he got shot? What do you think they were going to do to that man and his family? They went there armed so they probably expected to get into a confrontation and use deadly force to end it. As for him being a good person, How many "good people" break into someones home at 5:30am with a weapon? 0 thats how many. He got what he deserved and the guy that shot him should be given a medal. Just imagine how much future crime was stopped by ending the life of this scum bag.

Shonte read there statements Nisha quote go to hell no matter how bad he was doesnt give the man a right to shot him .Shaniqua quote bcaus he was a good person.Quentin quote it not fair to shoot a young person.Well its time to take a look and realize people are not going to be a gang bangers victim or easy prey for a drug user or a person who just thinks they can take what is not theres what would have happened if the home owner did not defend his home possibly saving his wife from a rape or being murdered.No your not the adults on the board you are looking at it with blinders on I would have shot all 4 and lost not one wink of sleep.Its time we take back over our streets and gwt rid of the trash of the town no matter what age good boys will live savages will die no loss to society.

Sean: I Agree The Man Killed The Boy To Protect Himself & Who ever Else Was In The Home

But Just Let It Rest
I Said It The Best Way I Could Just
Let The Boy Rest In Peace
His Actions Cost Him His Life........
I Wish Death Upon Nobody
But You Are Correct We Do Need To Get
A Lot Of These Bad People OFF The Streets
Because I Know How It Feels To Be Robbed
And To Be Afraid For My Life
So I Feel No One Was Wrong In This Situation.

But Some Of You Guys Comments Are A Little

Homeowner has a right to protect himself , was he supposed to just lay down and let the crims rob and kill him? 16 yrs old, he's a big man not a baby, he chose his fate, good riddance!

...I was his girlfriend && I really think the homeowner took it to the extreme. The least he could have done was took the gun and said "Im warning you step back; im calling the cops" Yea all of us his family and friends and also his brother know he did wrong. But I don't think killing someone solves everything. Gimbo, greg, && terry can go the hell all I care. I mean you acting real childish...You suppose to be grown but you congratulating someone on killing another get out of here!!! If it was you you wouldn't think it was fair for you to loose your live. See ya'll just don't understand. For the all the people who knew bakaree it's hard to loose someone that you really care for && love because sometimes you don't get to say your goobyes. But it pisses me off to see ignorent people in this world who just talk reckless. But im'a keep my comments to myself because I hate to be stupid over this computer. R.I.P Buchkechio Bakaree' Geddie!!! I LOVE YOU with all my heart...

right, back off or i'm calling the cops? One warning shot is all you get. If they were coming in the house, 5:30 am, with weapons. So sorry, if somebody is sneaking in, breaking in your house @5:30 and your spouse and KIDS are the house sleep, you're not picking up the phone. they weren't delivering anything but ill will towards anyone who would have been in their way...

It is a sad day when someone so young dies over a foolish act. However, a homeowner needs to know the laws. Without the home owner feeling threaten for his life but only get spooked and shots an intruder the homeowners entire world can be turn upside down. Meaning the intruder can sue the homeowner for wounding him, but dead men cannot talk the police would say. A homeowner hast to make sure it truly was in self-defense. The shame is most of us are not trained like the police not to react especially when strangers enter our home. Instead, we must plead as soon as the officers show up on sight that we feared for our life and/or family lives. As everyone has stated in this case it was in self-defense so the young man lost his life over invading someone home. Even though the homeowner had just cause to protect his household, the other bad part of this young man dieing was the homeowner would have to live with it for the rest of his life. In addition, I am sure the entire family was distraught by the terror that early morning and they may never get over it. Think about it you are awoke by a shot going off in your home. You do not know what just happen unless you were the one who pulled the trigger. The children and wife do not know now if the dad is laying dead. Instead, terror runs threw ever vein in their body because of the unknown of what just happen and what will happen next. Then you have all kind of commotion and finally the police show up. A person does not always have time to call the police before being confronted with an invasion. However, the law will hold us victims at fault unless they are all the way in the house and coming up the hall. Do I feel sorry for the 16-year-old boy who die, of course because he did not weigh out the cost and his family is in pain not just, because they lost a son, but because he committed a senseless crime that caused them to be put in agony. It is never a win situation on either side.
Just my two cents...
