I have a question for those who think that Mr. Horn deserves to be in prison for what he did.
How was he to know wheather or not these men were armed? How was he to know if his neighbor or his neighbors wife or children were home at the time?
Would it have been better for him to sit by and do nothing (like you people obviously would) or even worse, call the lazy doughnut eaters to come and
save the day? Police response time these days is by and large poor at best.
My girlfriends brother had his home broken into, and it took L.A.P.D. officers over four hours to respond after the fact. Would you as a decent human
being be able to live with yourself if you saw two men breaking into your neighbors house and did nothing, only to later find out that someone was
murdered or raped as you twiddled your self righteous, politically correct thumbs and did nothing?
How would you live with yourself if your neighbors child was abducted and murdered knowing full well that you could have put a stop to it if you had
only shown some guts and some geniune concern for your fellow man? I would never forgive myself. Horn had no idea what these men's true intentions
were. He saw what was taking place and instead of ignoring the situation he took the initiative to put a stop to something that he knew was wrong.
I could only hope that my neighbors would have the fortitude to stand up on my behalf like that. The reality is that in this day and age of pessimism
and self centered "me first" behavior, most people would have looked the other way. This is the same reason a woman can be raped in broad day light
on a busy street while having her cries for help ignored by people who would rather not get involved. It's a sad commentary on our country when good
men stand idely by and allow things like this to happen.
Eventually it will be YOU who will need the help of a neighbor, maybe then you will understand. I only hope that your neighbors do not subscribe to
then same self centered, uncaring belief system that you do, because it may just end up costing you your life.
