This story had me speechless when I first discovered it. A maniac in Florida shot dead a door-to-door salesman because he was 'trespassing'. Here's the story and some new facts that emerged recently - www.marcoislandflorida.com... ?odyssey=tab%7Cmostpopular%7Ctext%7CFRONTPAGE

Same thing here. Speechless. This is what the world is dealing with. Stupidity and craziness on a massive scale.

I've wanted to shoot a few Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses that came to my door, but NEVER anyone trying to sell me STEAK and LOBSTER!

That guy is truly disturbed!

He said Roop’s outlook was similar to “militia-minded, anti-government” types and that he was obsessed with the idea of guarding his home. Sotomayor recalled Roop saying: “I have a right to protect my property and my land. Nobody need come on there.” “I knew this guy was a time bomb, I really did,” Sotomayor said. “It’s unfortunate we didn’t get him convicted.”


interesting...

This guy clearly had issues, funny how they describe him though...

TimeBomb.

Many out there, and will use ANYTHING,to kill.


A man suspected of stabbing a car salesman to death with a butcher knife did so after his request to test drive a Corvette was turned down at a Cerritos auto dealership, authorities said Wednesday. Melchor Macaso, 35, of Norwalk was arrested on suspicion of murder Tuesday after he was restrained by the victim's co-workers at the scene, according to Capt. Daryl Evans of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Did you read the info on the shooter. A real ticking time bomb....Thank God he didn't shoot any of those children he called the cops on so many times. Based on reading his info, can't help but wonder if he visited ATS in the past....

but Florida is really smart.

I would have never expected this in the State of Florida.

Good God, as a proud gun owner and one who makes use of a CCW permit on a daily basis, I have to say.....

The wrong guy got SHOT!

The Salesman, in a just world, would have had a weapon himself and ended that menace to society while doing the wider world a great service.

I can't believe that sorry excuse for a man. He didn't even say a word, by the sound of it. Just acquired and fired as if in a damn video game. The victim was antagonistic?! He'd just been SHOT and for no reason with no warning. Was he supposed to sound grateful?!

I hope that sorry sack never breathes free air again. I think to the time I spent as a teen, peddling garbage door to door and imagine how I could have been that salesman but for time and circumstance. Fry the guy!

My first thought reading this was sadness for the salesman's loved ones (respectfully)
My second thought was ' There's still door to door salesmen out there?'
Third thought was how many times I have probably read something this person (or someone eerily similar) posts on here.
Note. Not picking on those out there that take security seriously out there. Just know where to draw the line.

Why is it that when I read headlines like this, the first thing that pops in my mind is, this must be Florida?

The story says the guy was previously arrested for threatening a meter reader with a gun, pointing it at her chest. While I don't know the specifics of either occurrence how could the jury in the previous case find him not guilty? If they would have convicted him I doubt he would even be allowed to own guns today. And while they might not have stopped what happened to the salesman it certainly might have prevented it.

Too many people lack simple compassion and love for their fellow human beings these days.

The guy was just trying to earn his living.

Won't be long before the ATS resident crazies are in here, claiming this guy had a right to "protect his property"

This guy needs to be put down, he's a menace to society. Take him out back and put him down instead of wasting tax payer's money on him

Pretty stupid (both ways if the sign was posted). We live out on the edge of town on acreage and have signs posted (No Trespassing and Dog on Property). 6 years ago just before Christmas when the house was less than 6 months old some guy came to our door in the middle of the day soliciting carpet cleaning. I was in the basement where I have a boutique commodity trading business and had to come upstairs. I didnt have time to argue with the guy who was scrawny and short compared to me (6'+) and told him that the carpet was virtually new and we didnt need his carpet cleaning services. I only had the door part way open and then he tried to push his way in and said "but you dont understand. it's a free estimate." I told him "No!" again and then forced the door shut. I assumed that given that it was 2 days before Christmas that he was casing the place for presents under the tree, etc. but my wife theorized that he probably had a gun or he would not have been so brazen (with the "carpet cleaning estimate" as a cover). All I know is that he looked like a crack or meth head and he was very brazen. So I can safely say that not all "door to door" solicitors are selling something....but to shoot someone for merely coming to your door is crazy.

Eh, perhaps my view is tainted because of the state I live in. Here in Texas it's illegal to solicit door to door. It's also legal to shoot someone who's on your property if you give him a warning telling him to leave first, and he refuses.

There are MANY people out in the country who think like this, and will DEFINITELY resort to shooting someone if they don't GTFO, immediately. However insane it may seem, I see it as a reality for a lot of people around here.

The world is getting dumber, and crazier.

Stories like these are becoming more and more commonplace all the time, and in both of these cases this would seem to appear to be linked to the entitlement society.

"You're on my land, so I can shoot you"

and "you didn't give me a test drive cause you probably thought I was nuts, so I'm going to show you I am by stabbing you to death".

There's a scary number of people out there who think that this sort of behaviour is perfectly acceptable. It doesn't seem to be limited on geographic, age, racial, economic, or education level boundaries (after all, the Aurora shooter was a University level student), so what's driving people nuts?

I have had people come to the door selling meat before also. They dont take No for an answer until the 3rd time and then they are off. One thing is for sure...this guy wont be getting any Steak & Lobster in prison!!

This is such a great example of what's wrong with America. There are far too many anti-social idiots who think they can get through life just by having a gun. This reminds me of that idiot in Texas who shot an exchange student who was trick or treating.

We need to start executing these people, they don't deserve to live in the human race.

What a sad thing. Sounds like the guy was on the....Unstable side, for sure. Pulling a gun and shooting some one, for coming within 4 ft of your car? Then shooting him in the back of the head ( The guy clearly had the intention of shooting to kill)?

I don't know what else I can say other than....What a sad story.
