First of all Steve was a good man loveing husband and father i'm sure he or his wife would have paid them when they got the money they would never rip someone off he was a hard worker. someone would have come to my house pounding on my door,windows for a hour i would have come out with a gun too he had a family inside 10:20 at night i'm sure he was asleep did'nt know who it was then seen who it was put the gun away i'm sure the staker men got a attiude so he told them to leave so they should have left and if that lawn mower part was so fucking important then bring the cops back in the day not at night, and why in the hell would you go to a house to repo a part at 10:20 they the stacker men wanted to cause problems! so sad

NO! I'm saying if you will not pay for it, IT AIN'T YOURS! GIVE IT BACK! I DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT KILLING ANYONE, but don't come out with a gun pointing at someone's face and not use it. If a gun was in your face would you not fell threatened???? If it is not paid for and you are NOT willing to pay for it, then give it back.

If the information from the PDT is accurate it could easily be self defense. Granted I think the Stakers could have handled the situation better from the beginning, but no matter what else you have the right to defend yourself if someone is about to shoot you as it sounded like Holsinger was about to do. If Holsinger did in fact raise his gun to Stakers face threatening to shoot him especialy out in the yard that is reasonable cause to shoot in self defense. Stakers were wrong but Holsinger made the fatal mistake as Staker was prepared to keep himself from getting shot. Holsinger could and should have called the police. The Staker's should also find a less confrontational method of repossessing their merchandise.

packing nowadays,is just for protection. if your job is a repossessor..i'm sure you run into some crazy nut cases. that whip out guns to protect property they don't even own. now if he was really threatend enough,to not call the sheriffs' dept..and had "enough" courage to bring a gun out onto the porch or front yard. why didn't he shoot first? waving and pointing a gun,at someone that has enough common sense and courage to protect himself and his father. now makes him a dirty bastard lol, i think not. if it was you,you would hope and pray you raised your child to protect himself and you if needed.
