Home invasion is burglary, it's petty theft. It's a pathetic little crime.
You need to learn English and work out what these words mean. I know Bush liked to extend the idea of "terrorism" to anyone who disagreed with him,
but come on! This is just so stupid it's verging on the insane!
If home invasion is a petty crime, how do you explain all the cases of home invasions where the people who owned the home came up dead, kidnapped, or
Home invasion is not just burglary it is not just petty theft. Many different things can and DO happen in cases where strangers enter your home
without permission and it has been that way for decades. The truth is the term "home invasion" is a relatively new term, but the crime itself is not
new. The Manson case was a home invasion, and how many people ended up dead in that "petty theft"?

And the same can be considered of any crime. Drink driving is a crime, but does it automatically mean the driver is also guilty of murder? No. Stop
making up the rules as you go. The vast majority (and I mean VAST MAJORITY) of break and enter incidents involve opportunistic thieves wanting money
I know this, because I spent ten years in security and responding to these incidents. The majority of these incidents do not involve rape and murder,
they involve some drug addict looking for something to sell for their next hit - this is a fact that no bombastic posting on here will ever change!
Escalation of that crime to something else is rare, and we all know it. So stop jumping to the worse case scenario to support a biased argument.
The fact is, these were two kids who broke the law, but the force used to stop them was grossly excessive. Any sane person can see that. The property
of a person is not more valuable than a Human life, whoever that property belongs to.
The idea that people would immediately say execution of a criminal is acceptable under these circumstances makes me sick and makes me concerned for
our society. While people are moving away from supporting the death penalty in the US, people are willing to accept execution style murder over
nothing more than a persons "things".
What is wrong with people?
