Most places take people to civil court..not come to your home at night with guns. Or let law enforcement handle it..sounds like Jr. watches too much tv..Prayers for the family of the Murdered man.
The shooter should be in jail..period.
So I guess it's ok if you owe a business money they can now come to your home and kill you ??
What's wrong with this picture ??
Brought it on himself

You people are stupid. This thief brought this on himself by pointing a gun at someone. Don't threaten with a gun and you won't be killed.

1. Why would CNN pick up on it? The deceased is not black.

2. Maybe they were having a duel and he lost? Like the wild wild west?

Thing is, WE WERE NOT THERE SO WE DO NOT KNOW

Ohio does not have a Stand your Ground law.
Never said it did, i just posted the link for those who had posted a question about it. But we do have a castle doctrine which was the latter link that was posted. Which pretty much said that once the peace was breached, and they were informed they were tresspassing the gentlemen who was shot dead was allowed to protect his family.

It's Portsmouth, Ohio. Who the hell cares? If you want this town on the map, it has to be for oxys. Do you know how many cities have cold blooded killers on the loose? Not all of them make the mainstream news.

I'm seriously laughing out loud at this now. All the people saying, "someone is outside pounding on my house late at night for over an hour, my kids are inside probably scared out of their minds, well, I'm going to go outside and tell them to go away, too." OMG, after one long, obnoxious knock after dark that doesn't appear to be stopping, my arse is calling the damn police! Sheesh, people I'm not defending what happened on either side, but damn! Use some common freakin sense! Do you understand the words that are coming out of your own mouths, or do you all REALLY think you're that tough and don't mind putting your kids in danger????

What a rambling stupid post. Save for the eulogy. Thieves that stole horses used to be hanged. Staker saved someone else from being ripped off by these jack wads.

The Ohio statutes, as well as UCC 9-503, provide that a dealer may proceed by with a "self-help" method if possession can be done without breach of the peace. Breach of the peace essentially means that during the actual attempt to repossess the equipment the repossessor may not employ oppressive conduct, threat of force, an implied threat of force or confrontation to gain possession of the collateral. A dealer cannot violate the law to repossess collateral.
They clearly breached peace by beating on the guys door for a hour. and they commited murder to try to get property back.
So, if the peace WAS being breached for an HOUR, disturbing Holsinger, his wife and his children, why didn't Holsinger just simply call the Police and let THEM put an end to the situation?

Calling the police would've amounted to utilizing common sense which this area lacks.
