The jury is deliberating.

I still contend that it is impossible to "set burglars up".

He didn't entice them with a trail of cash leading to his front door and beyond.

He moved his car and went to his basement to read. Within the hour, they arrived and broke through a locked window after trying the doors and discovering they were locked. They had obviously been there before because they headed straight down to the living room which was downstairs.

I contend he DID NOT set them up.

He needs to pay the price for waiting 24 hours to call police.

Those kids ruined this mans life and ruined their own as well.

Mr. Smith should have shot them once and called police. Sad though that a productive member of society that is just trying to enjoy his retirement is now in jail for life.

Sad deal all around
