Public hangings, cutting of hands and fingers. Wouldn't take much to get this country back in line. These thugs have no respect for human life. Truth be known they will probably be out trying to break in another home today.

I think when these theives are found, the law needs to shoot to kill. There was no reason for these two to shoot this innocent woman. These two thieves have probably been and always will be a pain in society's A** and a waste of taxpayers hard earned dollars. We need to start weeding the thugs out and take our communities back.

I never had a gun in my house when my kids were growing up.I am fifty years old now my husband works and kids work and one in college.I am mostly by myself all day long.After all I see in the news I bought a gun and it stays right at arms reach always.After reading this I feel that I need to buy a gun holster to wear out when I leave my house!It just seems like the old western days are coming back.I live in a nice area but we have had our share of people getting there homes and cars broken into.I would hate to shoot someone but if they get passed my lock doors and my dogs there fair game and I not playing!

These thugs need to be removed from society. Animals behave better than they do. Try this when I arrive home and you can find out who is the better shot, someone with 35 years of firearms experience and an instructor....or you, who will certainly be trying to "get out of Dodge". I think I might just be the one in better control. Then we can call 911 and ask for the coroner to come out. Tired of thieves doing this type of thing. You can't leave your home to work or just to enjoy life without worrying about thugs stealing what you have to work to have!!! Sick and tired of it.

Another reason for home owners to take the law into their own hands. Everyone has the right to protect themselves and their property. Again thugs with nothing better to do and might I say WORTHLESS ones at that. I hope that the next person they attempt to rob shoots both of them between the eyes.
