"Kids"? Thugs would be a better description. No qualities whatever to live and be successuful in a civilized society.

Just think of the cost to society by this sub-human segment of low IQ, uneducated, violence prone bunch.

Comes from roots of stupidity. Who would go all the way to Lanexa to steal firearms from a country-man knowing the place is so isolated and they would never be found again. They gotta know those farmers out there are inbred and have their own way of looking after each other

Boy, I did some stupid stuff when I was a kid where I knew I could get hurt or killed, but breaking into a house with a shotgun with the intention to steal guns and drugs? Are you freaking kidding me? At least his life can be used as a bad example and serve as a warning for what can happen.

Sounds like it is a clear case of self defence.They went to his house armed with the intent of robbing him.Give this guy an award.This young man got what was coming to him as sad as it sounds.

He tried to hide the body and ran. He's in trouble elsewhere, otherwise the shooting would be self defense.

Well the article said the young men were trying to rob him for guns and drugs.Perhaps it's that drug part that made him run.

I can say that as a person who has spent numerous hours with these young individuals, I would have never seen this coming. Many others have said the same over the past few days. I noticed in other forums that people commented on the fact that people say that Christopher was turning his life around, and the negative comments that followed. It goes without saying that he WAS INDEED turning his life around, yet he hadn't quite made it there. He was headed down the right path by going back to school, and I believe that is why that comment was made. Yet he had not made a full turn, Of course. Sad to see that him falling off the track resulted in him losing his life and the others in jail. Who knows what goes through these childrens heads. I am not defending his actions, i'm just saddened by the fact that he paid for them with his life. These young men as well as other I hope take this as a lesson well learned. As for the so called home owner, well i really don't know what to say, defending his property, self-defense? That is justifiable, I can say that if someone was kicking in my door I damn well will pull out my piece and fire to protect myself, and my home. I don't think I would pill the body in the back yard cover it, and split town. I would call the police report the home invasion and the fact that I shot and maybe killed the intruder. Makes me think if there is a little more to this story. What's not being told here?

Doesn't anyone realize that all of these boys are someone's son? None of us know to what degree each of them played a part in this terrible tragedy or if they in fact ALL did. The bigger questions would be which of the boys were actually present? How did these boys know that the man accused of pulling the trigger would have anything to rob to start with? These sorts of things do not just come out of the blue and there must be more to the story. As a parent I can not imagine what all of the families are going through right now. It appears as if they were doing something insanely stupid, but by the same token, their ill fated plans have left their friend dead and that will be more than enough for them to live with than charges of conspiracy to commit robbery. Regardless of whether or not they are all convicted, my hope is that they will choose to take the higher road and that these events have been a wakeup call for all of them no matter the degree of their involvement.

The guy protecting himself was wanted by law enforcement. His actions are consistent with someone who wants to avoid contact with the police.

Christopher Greene didn't just exercise bad judgment. This is at the far end of the stupid scale. I'm glad someone took him out before he had a chance to kill an innocent person.

Yeah all the people I know who are turning their lives around try to kick down doors carrying shotguns. The little thuglet got exactly what he asked for. Some people are saying the guy in the house was dealing drugs (weed ..rolling eyes), and talk like he's at fault for those stupid punks trying to do an armed home invasion. I'd have shot the punk too if he tried to kick in my door. I mean what idiot tries to kick down a drug dealers door? Did they not expect firearms or at least dogs? The boy is a two time idiot for putting his family thru the funeral, eand the disgrace of being a wanna be hood rat.

He was such a good boy. Give me a break!

Does anyone realize that these boys were someone's son? LET US ALL START HERE:----How about the mother that hasn't seen the deceased since July??? Let me guess....6-10 other children, no vehicle, no money for gas, still looking for a job, testing 4-6 MEN for possible child support, hoping Jerry Springer will call before she is evicted AGAIN with her children that she claims that she loves more than sex, drugs, and partying! The only crime committed here that should be punished is her inability to realize GRANDMA WAS TOO OLD TO KEEP AN EYE ON HER ELDEST---and society took care of it permanently! NEXT PROBLEM?????
