If these "home invasion thugs" come to my house, I would lock up the dogs just to watch them get " lead poisoning"

this is really scary if it happened as reported. there are some things about it that i wonder, like why would anyone shoot someone over a tv. another thing is the victims were awake and this is a rural and wooded area. they should have heard or seen lights from the car. since they gave a description of the car it must have been in their driveway. it seems more likely this was the result of a fight either between the victims or with someone they knew who was already at their home. but if i'm wrong i apologize. just going by the details i have read.

they dropped off the 2 males. they did not pull up. & i was standing on my back porch. the reason we know the vehicle is because my boyfriend, "the man", pulled up shortly after me and noticed it driving suspicious on our private drive.

A gold Ford Expedition should be easy to spot. Someone knows who that vehicle belongs to.

please accept my apologies. I should have known better than to just go by what was reported in the papers. I'm glad there was at least a car description. They need to put out a reward and someone who knows them will tell. I bought a gun today and from now one will shoot first, ask questions later. Nowhere is safe, even your own home.

BTW, I don't know why this board says I live in AL. I live just down the road from where this incident happened.

Okay, let me see if I've got this straight.

A man returns home at 1:00am to find a car load of black males acting suspiciously on his "private drive". He is not concerned enough to report this or even tell his girlfriend, who is hanging out on the deck.

The car load of black males choose a house to invade where they know the residents are awake since they have just seen them return home. So much for the element of surprise.

The "black males" are obviously psychic since they know the female resident is on the back deck. One of the "black males" contronts her there while the other knocks at the front door. We know he must have knocked since the female victim has told us that her boyfriend was on the way to answer the door when it was kicked in.

One of the "black males" then shoots the male victim but leaves the female victim as a witness. They then make off with a tv, an inexpensive and heavy item, which they lug back to the getaway car which we have been told was not in the driveway.

Interesting.

I think there are two possibilities of what REALLY happened here. One is in the comment directly above mine.

Scenario #2 - money was owed for drugs. Dealer came to collect. TV given for collaterol. Altercation broke out - shots fired.

I sure hope the police aren't wasting to much time looking for the black guys in a gold expedition. They're about as likely to exist as the black guy who kidnapped Susan Smith's children.

I see there was an arrest in this case. What do you want to bet the "victims" knew him and owed him drug money?
There is no way someone anonymous could have been identified, tracked down in Tallahasse, and arrested that quickly without information beyond "black male".

how do you identify someone in all black with their face covered as the paper said and what evidence do they have on the young man accused imean really theres alot of gold expeditions really are you sure the cops are not just tryin to ease the publics mind with an arrest since they arent able to figure this out and when are the cops gonna start investigating the victims to see what their involved in 9 times outa 10 its someone they come in contact with daily

Im the suspects girlfriend n the public defenders wouldnt even take this case cause its all bogus they have no evidence the civil regional councel is taking over for the public defenders n are hiring a private attorney we hoping for a civil lawsuite cause they going on assumtion n police have adviced me tht the victums are under investigation as well for drugs they told me it was a drug deal gone bad!!! I dont think ny drug dealer should be pointing fingers n I am far from a snitch but when some one falsely accuses someone n they are arrested on charges that serious I am definately willing to tell there whole opperation but we going to see where this goes first before it comes to that cuz the state still has not picked up charges on him they have 45 days to pick them up or they have to release him!!
