Yesterday I was reading the news and came across this storyabout a man in Minnesota who killed two intruders in his home. I encourage you read the story, but the gist of it is that two teenagers broke into the house of a 64 year old man (apparently it wasn’t the first time) on
Thanksgiving Day. He waited in the basement and wound up killing them both in a rather cold-blooded fashion. The two intruders – a male and female who were cousins – had supposedly broke in before on numerous occasions, but the home owner had only called the police once. In that instance about $10,000 in goods were stolen.
After killing the two teens he dragged them into a different room and left them there and the police weren’t notified until the next day.
This is one of those stories where I can kind of see both points of view. First, this guy had been broken into numerous times and wanted it to end – and he ended it. But… he essentially became the judge, jury and executioner.
My question to you is did he have the right to kill these two kids? And if he did was it morally right to kill them? Like one person interviewed said, “If it was 3:00 am I’m gonna shoot first and ask questions later, but it was in the afternoon on Thanksgiving Day.”
Personally I think this was some pretty cold blooded stuff and the guy needs to go away, but that’s just my opinion.
What do you think?
