2 masked intruders killed in gunfight with homeowner | www.kirotv.com
Weed plus guns = prison time.
Someone is in deep doo doo. (can't swear on this family oriented board)
Someone wanted some free weed and got killed over it. They heard smoking it there is legal now but forgot armed robbery is frowned upon.
Hope the homeowner doesn't do much time, but we have corporate prisons to keep full so chances are he is screwed.
2 dead oxygen wasters.
Glad he was able to protect his home & his young son... too bad he chose the wrong time to have a big grow operation in his home. With legalization now happening, it's only a matter of time before restrictions on personally growing it are also loosened.
Pretty nice home coming up for sale real soon.
Good thing the baddies are dead, but pot grow operation? yeah he is going to jail.
Maybe the guy was a dipsh it , but he should still be able to defend his house AND FAMILY.
I think he should do more time for placing his son at risk than shooting the 2 robbers.
They came into his house with guns and attempted to rob him at gun point
he should be exonerated of any wrong doing for this.
Growing? Who cares?
Risking his son? Everyone should care.
If the home owner only wounded them, would they sue him?
Wow... Nice home for growing...
Pretty good shooting for being high! I can't even imagine how badly traumatized his poor son is and this is probably just the beginning of his nightmare! I hope that the kid has a quality relative who will step up and love and care for him. His dad killed to protect a felony, don't think that the courts are going to be very friendly about that! As for the deceased robbers, blank them!
If this guy has no "real Job" how is it he can live in a house that nice without proof of income.. Has to be a 1/2 million dollar house.
This reads like someone was trying the neighbor's goods
The grow operation more than pays for the house.Probably not his only grow location either
Agreed on the house. Moreover, don't assume that he owned the house. He may have been renting it, or having someone else "front" the mortgage.
Wow! I sure hate to see people losing their lives over something so stupid like pot. What a shame. But when you invade a man's home you take a big risk and put your life on the line. A good message for others that are thinking about doing a similar crime.
Yeah I see but isn't this last line a bit harsh?
He may be a dick but wishing forced rhythmic rhyming on him is downright cruel.
Someone got a light bag.
The burglers got what they all deserve. The father putting a child in a house with a target on it is very sad. With the new law in this state we are going to see alot more of this. The up side is maybe they will just start killing each other. The down side is it will be the guns fault you watch.
50-60 plants? That's not small-time or even kinda sorta for personal use. The guy was running an illegal drug manufacture and selling operation in the same house his 7-year-old son lived.
I have no problem with pot. I'd be quite happy if they legalized every aspect of the pot industry tomorrow. But growing maybe 30-40 POUNDS of pot in your home, when doing so is a MAJOR felony AND a giant invitation to exactly this kind of rip-off is NOT something I give a pass to around your 7-year-old kid.
Glad the two robbers got what was coming to them. But this idiot just lost his son to the state and will do SERIOUS time in prison ALL of which was predictable. That's not someone I'm gonna stand up and cheer for on either Marijuana legalization OR gun rights.
