First of all...let that man out of jail and give him an award. What should you do when you find one of these punks has broken into your home. He should have killed the other punk too. The home owner must be black.. Since he's locked up for it.

people need to chill out a little i think..too much hate and bullsh!t goes on that you have no control over, why add more pain and misery to the world when most already have enough to deal with. Chill out people sign up for the military if you wanna goto war. Granted they were in his home but still, kill a kid???..come on now.

put your address on here so they can enter your house next time. That poor man was not in the wrong. I wished he would killed them all. He did us all a favor.

yeah because his sh!thole house had so much valuable shit in there, right? That five dollar deadbolt that got broke was hard to work for an idiot like him I imagine.

it was a kid, not an adult.Not a bum.A kid. That was a grown man that looks of decent size..what a coward though obviously.Once again we should get along with each other. Whats the point in fighting with each other over the smallest of things?..a dirty @ss abandoned house..lol..almost as bad as fighting over who cut who off in traffic.

If someone broke in my house don't care how he is.All ages have guns & knives. Should you ask for an I D before you defend your property. He set himself up to get shot.

go to the funeral home page and click his name. and see this young man's life diplayed in pictures. very sad.

i can relate to some of the photo's, as a mother of 2 son's. one particular photo made me cry, because it was such a boy thing that tugs at a mother's heart. i am sad for this family and i don't even know them.

i dont think i would have gone that far on a kid, but i definitely would have laid a grown man to rest. illinois needs a CC law at least for those deemed fit and mentally capable to obtain and use guns. break into my house and i am going to assume you are willing to hurt me upon confrontation. if this kid had a gun and shot the man defending his home you naysayers would be singing a different tune

If someone is trying to get in my window I will so the same thing.
If you kill them, they wont do it again. Kill them before they kill you. What if it is a woman home alone. What do you think he would do
. I am not willing to take a chance.

like I said before. This "man" was defending
a sh!thole that he calls a house, which is empty besides old junk. This is a growing problem in Peoria is violence. Who cares if he smoke weed in your sh!tty house? I'm sure everyones done ten times worse in their lifetime besides find a place to squat. Not like he was trying to hurt anybody or rob an individual..he broke into an abandoned house, get a grip people. Next thing you know youll be defending the killers of the little boy that got killed. Hateful, greedy cowards.
