They might not have deserved it, but they made a decision, and it was a bad one. A person who’s been burgled twice before has a right to defend themselves, and their property. If more people owned guns -and criminals knew it- the burglars might think twice about breaking into someone’s home.
We made the call yesterday that the families of two teen home invaders shot down in a widow’s home would likely whine that they didn’t deserve to be shot, and sadly, we were right on target:
Family and friends of two teenage boys shot and killed inside a home they had broken into are speaking out.“They didn’t deserve to get killed,” said the sister of 14-year-old Michael Sambrano. He and his 16-year-old best friend were shot and killed on Sunday morning by someone inside a home the teens were breaking into. Police won’t say whether it was the elderly homeowner or her brother who shot and killed the teens who had just broken into their home. “They were on their way out the door, and I just think it was wrong that they were shot,” said Christina Sambrano. But many who live on Arcade Boulevard say the neighbor did the right thing.“Justice was served,” said Robert Robinson.
The widow in the home had been burgled twice before, and the news article states that fingerprints from one of the deceased burglars was matched to one of the previous break-ins. They were killed as they terrorized an elderly woman, yet again.
