Yep. And shooting an unarmed person in the back when the threat has subsided is murder. And when her family finishes in civil court with whatever he has, then justice may have been served. I strongly advocate self defense, but there has to be a degree of responsibility. The old dude needs to go down for this.

people like you kill me. This man's house had been broken into FOUR times, probably by the same bunch of losers, and you don't think this man deserved to shoot them? Oh, and if you read the entire story, you will see that these thugs you defend had beat him up, breaking his collarbone. The woman would still be alive if she would have made better life choices. P.S She wasn't pregnant. Autopsy confirmed it.

Doesn't matter. Educate yourself I'm not defending any of them. Least of all, the murderer. The threat was over for him. He should have shot them sooner, not running away. So, would the shooting be justified if it were your kid running from him? I would find him guilty. Period. The purge has begun yet. You don't just shoot whoever whenever. Or don't you know that?

who says the threat was over? Maybe they told him while they were whooping his a$$ that they were going to kill him. Maybe they told him when he was shooting at them "we'll be back old man". Did you not understand where it said this was the FOURTH time? You absolutely are taking up for these thugs and it's not like the old man went to a mall and started shooting people. He shot at people who had repeatedly robbed him and were in the process of TRYING TO KILL HIM. And I pray that I raise my children to never put themselves in those situations. So please educate yourself and get with the rest of hard working, decent people who are tired of our shi+ being stolen and thugs running wild. This man is not a murderer. He's an old man who did the right thing by getting these losers off the streets and planet. Maybe your house will get broken into and you will open your eyes. Good day.

This pile of human waste did not deserve to live in polite civil society,
maybe is the USA used the death penalty more , and tad quicker!!!
I think people who use super addicting drugs should be dropped in the ocean and let the sharks eat them.
I think child molesters and abusers should be burned alive.
I think welfare cheats should be ran over by car jacking Nikkas.

They beat him and broke his collarbone. Good for the old man! 99% of people want him not to be charged as people are fedup. Too bad the bytch didn't get a job than she'd be alive instead of on a slab. And they might have come back and did it again. Too bad radio shack employees cant carry, seeing lazy scum keeps robbing them with a gun in their faces too! Fill these scum full of holes and they get the message!

I strongly advocate self defense. Always have, always will. And since you do not know me, you know shit about what I know, what I do, and where I've been. I despise thugs, thieves, and the rest of the lower than life cesspool dwellers. With that said, one must be very careful when taking on the role of judge, jury, and executioner. This guy wasn't careful and if the law of man is ever to be applicable to anyone, then it damn sure applies to him as well. You would be screaming to the rafters if the victim were a family member of yours. You can't have it both ways. The law applies to everybody, or nobody. Fourth time or fiftieth time makes no difference. And you can't infer what may have been said. That's just childish. I guess in your eyes the hotdog salesman that blew away the guy trapped in his car was justified too. I guess as long as it isn't you or yours, then it's cool to open up on anyone. Well maybe you will one day reap what you sow, then you may be educated and mature enough to address this intelligently and not pathetically. I can appreciate empathy and sympathy, but two wrongs do not justify the outcome. Again, you would think differently if it were your child. Or maybe not. Go back to sleep now. You're not contributing anything.

Amen!!! Having been burglarized, the POS oughta be damn lucky I didn't show up while she was stealing my shit! No sympathy at all when they get smoked, as it should be done a lot more often, than maybe these criminals would think twice.

I agree that "thinning the herd" would be beneficial for society, but to do so recklessly and without discipline can only jeopardize Castle Doctrine and our right to defend ourselves. In the long run dumbasses with guns will hurt us more than help. Whiney ass liberals wait for these opportunities to paint law abiding gun owners in a bad color and any "smart" person would know that. Shooting women in the back while running and shooting men trapped in a vehicle after tracking them down is not good for the "smart" gunowners. Championship games are not won by mere speed and muscle alone. Tactical planning and strategy are essential. But why am I attempting to explain this to east enders. That just makes me stupid. Most of you freakshows hang on obama's nuts and really want to be bitchslapped into submission. Well, you will be. Good luck with that lack of intelligence that you possess. I'll not waste one of my rounds to save you.

What does being an East ender have anything to do with this discussion? You are the one acting like a whiny a$$ liberal, taking up for criminals. It's obvious these people were thieves and probably drug addicts, so if it was a member of my family I probably wouldn't have anything to do with them anyway. Ask just about anyone you know their opinion on this and I bet 9 out of 10 people would agree with me. I hope this man gets cleared of any wrong doing and it sends a clear signal that we are fed up with thieves, child molesters and rapists. I guess you think the man who beat up the man who molested his son was wrong too because he didn't catch him in the act. Take your b.s. on down the road because your views are downright laughable. If we were Obama supporters, we would be screaming to take this man's gun away. You sound like the Obama supporter with your criminal sympathizing attitude.

Idiots are disturbing. Okay, you may be conservatives, but that alone doesn't make you intelligent, obviously. The dude was wrong, yea, maybe right too, but still wrong and someone was murdered while fleeing. His recklessness endangered countless others and for that I say screw him. You would too, but obviously can't be wrong. Yep. East end. When they're at your door, handle it. Don't involve others.

When you mature a bit you may see things differently. Until then, you're as much a problem as those you seek to execute. Intelligence doesn't make you weaker. Try it on once.

If they break into your home, and they are still in your home when you shoot them dead, it is 100% legal regardless of which way they were facing.
Once they force entry into your home, and while they are still in it, their ass is yours to do with as you please.

I agree completely. But not out of the house, out of the yard, and running down an alley. There may have easily been innocent victims in the vicinity. Regardless, flight is a defensive maneuver. But again, in my home, I own your last breath. Threatening my well being or that of another in a location that I am legally allowed to be, I own your last breath. Fleeing from me in public, nope. That's a crime to shoot you.
