You peeps are real messed up. You should not kill someone because they are burgling you house. Anyone that thinks otherwise is suffering from some kind of mental psychosis. It is a person entering you home, not a rapist or a murderer... Really do you think someone deserves to die for robbing you big flat screen tv....

Don't get me wrong, I am not advocating the death penalty for theft. What I am saying is that the person defending themselves shouldn't even be making the choice out of judgement in the first place.
I wouldn't shoot an intruder because they deserved it.. I'd shoot an intruder to ensure the security of myself, my family, and my property. If that leads to an unfortunate outcome the responsibility lies solely with the person who willingly did wrong.

First thing I thought when reading this story is "why did he stash the bodies after?"

If you are shooting in self defence. You call the police immediately after. People who are genuinely trying to protect themselves, aren't happy with it...and also want the matter resolved by authorities.

Everyone is a coward and a hypocrite. Maybe you would lay down and die, but that is not normal so don't expect everyone else to. It is also retarded.

They didn't deserve to die.
Friends and family have expressed their outrage over the deaths of two popular students shot by a homeowner while they robbed his home - as he revealed he fired 'more shots than he needed to'.
The bodies of cousins Haile Kifer, 18, and Nicholas Brady Schaeffel, 17, were found in Byron Smith's basement in Little Falls, Minnesota on Friday - the day after they were shot dead on Thanksgiving.
When police arrived at his home after reports of suspicious activity, Smith, 64, confessed to shooting the teenagers repeatedly and stashing their bodies after they broke into his home, authorities said.
On Monday, he was charged with second-degree murder and police revealed he told them he fired more shots than necessary after his gun jammed and Kifer laughed at him.

Role model? Star students? How about repeat break and enter / robbery suspects. If they weren't breaking and entering NOTHING WOULD HAVE HAPPENED. I am sure the usual anti-gun membership on ATS will say he shouldn't have defended his home and property, but like I said, if they weren't breaking the law they would still be alive today. Parents are in part to blame, obviously they didn't teach their children the proper respect of others property and rights. Tired of the "good kids" excuse, your actions have consequences, just as these two found out.

Great post OP.
These young adults would still be alive had they not been criminals.
