My sympathy, but really......... leaving your back door unlocked when you live off of 131st street???? You have to use a little more smarts than that. I always lock my doors so if somebody tries to break in, it will give me enough time to get a round in the chamber.

Beating down an 11 year child?

I am glad to read that the family and kids are safe after all.

Really? Beating an 11-year-old? Sometimes there is more to these stories. There is a 16-year-old in the house. Something tells me this could very well be related to something that followed him home.

You just don't run into a hood house expecting money. LOL It's the end of the month? What money?

Thats a good idea.That way they are forced to break in,giving you full right to blow their brains out.I keep a loaded gun hidden right next to my door at all times.Bang bang,no more thuggie!

I'm with Maple. Somebody isn't giving the full story here because crooks seldom break into occupied homes. If all they wanted was money, they would have waited until they left the house. It's way to dangerous to break into occupied homes around here unless you know for a fact nobody in the house has a gun.

Exactly. This was basically a home invasion, I don't know why it is classified as a burglary. They were armed, sounds like they would have kicked the door in if it was locked.

The people that do the "door open snow shoveling" break-ins target people that are alone, they don't come armed with guns doing home invasions on homes that might have $2 in them at the end of the month.

With the snowblower thing, they know that the people live alone and likely have an unlocked door. The law states that you don't have to have your home broken into to legally use deadly force. If somebody walks through an unlocked door, you still have the right to defend yourself with a firearm. Thieves know this so they make sure their victims are alone and if possible, elderly.

My mother was out with the snowblower last year. A police car pulled up to her and the cop got out and asked if her doors were locked. She told him they were closed but unlocked. The officer advised her to lock her doors when she's outside because this new technique of going into the house is really catching on.

Yeah, that is a bad place to put a subway. I almost got robbed in that area back in high school when I used to deliver pizzas. Ghetto [email protected] are just wild over there.

Hell, that was a bad area when I was a teen. I used to know a guy who was friends with a kid over there. They were like one of the last white families in that neighborhood, and it was bad back then. We're talking about the early 70's here. I used to hang out there, but seldom stayed past sundown. I can't imagine it's any better today, and more likely, much worse.

But that law has some fine print attached to it.If the door is open and you dont kill the thug,he can say that you let him in and you have to prove otherwise.Remember,dead men tell no tales.
