    Rob? Steal? Rape? Kill? Who knows? It stopped at the window. Good job.

    To those of you defending this man - I bet you were also big on expanding the time that bars can serve alcohol and the Sunday sales as well. I will never understand why anyone feels the need to drink to the point that they have no control. Was his buzz really worth the consequences? I find it very funny when something like this happens or someone gets caught with a DUI or kills someone, they always say "I wish I hadn't drank so much"!!!

    Even if this man just made a "mistake" take responsibility for your actions. I would have shot first and asked questions later. He had no right to be there and she had every right to defend her home. He was wrong, whether it was a drunken mistake or a break in makes no difference. It's not like he made a wrong turn in the drive way or rang the door bell.

    to those of you that wish she had killed him: I hope you don't mistakenly trespass on someone's property. Yes, he did something stupid, but he didn't deserve to die. And I can see why you would all be confused about what he actually did-it's such an informative article!

    I'm glad it didn't kill him now maybe he'll learn the evils of being a drunkard. If he was also trying to steal, he'll learn the evils of stealing also.

    i think the lady taught him a lesson maby he will tell his friends what hampend and they will watch whous they will break into. more of us should start doing the same thing.then the crime rate would keep your gun ready because we dontknow who will be next

    I would like to congratulate this woman. If more people would keep their guns handy these criminals running around would think twice about trying to steal or break in someone's house. It really is a shame that we have to worry about having a gun in the house to protect our family. If the government trys to take our guns they will have to pry my cold dead fingers off mine! One of our freedoms that is left is the right to bear arms and I hope they never take that away from us. Look out criminals, you may get a surprise and I hope you not allregic to lead if you try to break in my house.

    He is their neighbor, who was drunk, and he tought he was entering his own house, so is it a accident or is it a breakin? Do not judge intil truth comes out!
