Guess we better get ready to give up some more tax dollars for all the police we are going to have to hire to investigate all the shootings that will occur as a result of this decision. I beleive in being able to protect your home but also know that if you can remain safe and call the police you should. The crook trying to get into the car was wrong and the homeowner that shot him when he tried to run away - even more so. They will both meet their maker one day and have to account. In the meantime we are left with several government officials sanctioning vigilante justice - plain laziness. Of course I guess it will creat more work in the long run therby providing them with job security!

This is a case that needs to be investigated. Sounds like there is more to the story than what is being told.

Agreed there should be charges on the home owner. It sounds like homeowners can kill who they want and no charges.The victim has no rights, and the home owner made sure he could not tell his side.
