^^^^i suppose that depends on what your definition of a great father/husband is.
i am thinking that for the most part, responsible adults with kids don't go out and break into homes....
you may be right but my gut says no.
if he was that fantastic, maybe he should have thought of that before he broke in.
We simply don't know and I find it rather distasteful that so many people would be so happy about a tragedy.
^^^^^i am by no means happy, but not sad either.... icare enough to talk with you guys about it..somebody, somewhere in this country just got killed.
and just now another was kllled.
The shooter isn't a hero.

I don't care how expensive the property that these guys were stealing was, they did not deserve to die. And the man who shot them had absolutely no right, in regards to morals, common sense, sanity, to go out there and shoot them.
^^^^everyone has different morals....yours may not be the same as his...
The 2 men WERE criminals but their crime did not warrant a death sentence. The people on here who say that what happened was good sicken me.
^^^^i'm not really glad they are dead, but i am not sad either....tell you what though, better two punks breaking into a home than some innocents.
they didn't hurt anyone.
^^^^would they have? should we wait and watch as people go and invade others property...
People have no regard for human life anymore.
^^^^humans are inherantly(sp) bad, imo
Those men would have had family, a mother, father, sisters, brothers, children. Their stealing would have upset a few innocent families (in regards to feeling safe in their homes, etc), but their murder is going to destroy and hurt other innocent lives, much worse and for much, much longer.
^^^^^if they had all that then maybe, just maybe they shouldn't be commiting crimes....ya think? what a great dad. what a great son...please
If you can't see how much more unecessary pain that this is going to cause then I really feel sorry for you.
^^^^no need. better them take the big nap than the old lady in the house they're gonna hit next...
This story makes me feel extremely lucky to live in the country I live in right now.
Since so many people in the good ol' US of A would like to see us stop treating criminals like criminals. Perhaps we really should cease our "Capital Punishment" program and offer a different route for those who feel sentencing a murderer to death is cruel and inhuman punishment.
Perhaps we should just institute an "Adopt a Criminal" program. Then all of these (in)human rights types could feel a bit better about themselves by sparing a rapist/murderer/molester's life and bringing them into their own homes to help "rehabilitate" them.

Nearly 10 minutes.
That was about the same amount of time it took them to respond to my call when I was taken out by a drunk driver. You learn quickly that you shouldn't rely on anybody but yourself.

I guess we're both guilty of making assumptions. However, in my scenario everyone lives. In your's people die.
