    I saw this a few days ago. He has a right to shoot somebody burglarizing him. And he said it`s happened something like 5 times before. If you`re not allowed to defend your home against intruders, we really are all now a nation of dependent bitches.

    And that photo there isn`t just him relaxing, it`s him reenacting the night to the reporter.

    Quik2TheStab - Looks like we got a dependent little bitch here.

    His safety could have been easily in jeopardy here, and it`s his own home for frack`s sake. How could you condemn a poor 92 year old to being at the mercy of a burglar in his own home? A man`s home is his castle.

    The burglar is not a victim.

    Quik2TheStab-"Potentially saving a few dollars worth of property is definitely worth murder."

    Self-defense =/= murder.

    Undoubtably , Lloyd Maxwell considered the junk in Mr. Jones`s house worth his life (or, more likely, didn`t consider his life worth much).

    Now, if Mr Maxwell consideres Mr. Jones stuff worth more than his life, why should Mr. Jones consider Mr. Maxwell`s life at all?

    DixxyRarr-"He had a whole future, and a family and friends that loved him."

    And he considered Mr. Jones possesions worth more than his life, his future, and the love of his family and friends.

    Simply put: If you`re willing to break into someone else`s home, you life is worth slightly less than the cost of a round of ammo.

    Turd: Come on, don`t be a dick. Also- my comments are not sadder than the death of a person, and you know it.

    Grendel: Yeah sure, he was in the wrong. WAY wrong. But it`s gross to me that he had no hesitation to go `straight for the heart`. Since I`m not a gun owner, I think the best way to have acted would have been to leave the house (he was in the basement after all) and call 911.

    I have no sympathy for the crook - anyone who breaks into the home of a war vet deserves to get shot. I don`t think a kill shot was necessary though. The guy would have been busted at the hospital and the message would still have been sent to the others that the homeowner is armed and ready & willing to shoot your ass.

    To everyone who disagreed with me, don`t get me wrong, if you come into my house trying to steal stuff, I will beat the ass out of you. But after you`re incapacitated, I`m calling the police, and I`m not starting with a killing shot.

    Also, very few people break into a house to kill someone. It`s to steal stuff. Maybe to rape someone, but I doubt that was the case, here.

    This was murder. He killed a person, and had no reason not to just kneecap him, or even just point out that he had a loaded gun in his hands.

    You`re an idiot Quik, and I`m fairly certain you know it. If I break into your house, I`m breaking in armed. Go ahead "beat the ass out of" me when I have a glock.

    Or, in your best determination, take out my knee cap. That`s even worse than a warning shot. All that will do is piss me off so badly I`ll definitely want to kill you if I didn`t before. Warning shot is a better option than clipping an intruder, that said, it`s just as likely to get you killed as doing nothing at all.

    DixxyRarr-"it`s gross to me that he had no hesitation to go `straight for the heart`. "

    The homeowner was 92 years-old. `Restraining` a 24 year old crook is not exactly an option. And `straight for the heart` is the most effective stopping means.

    DixxyRarr-"I think the best way to have acted would have been to leave the house"

    Again, NINETY-TWO years old. Climbing out the back window is not exactly viable.

    DixxyRarr-"and call 911."

    Average response time of 911: 20-30 minutes. The intruders where SECONDS away from him. Average response time of 00 buck shot: ~1250 feet per second.

    I`m not sure about the law in KY, but in MO, the dead burglar`s two accomplices would be charged with murder in the death of their fellow thief.

    @indisguise, if you ever get the chance, ask a cop what he thinks of your "shoot to discourage" policy.

    @Quik2TheStab, and if you`re LUCKY, the intruder won`t have a gun. If he does, you will die.

    A 92 year old has very limited options. They can`t really run. They can`t really even crouch under a table very well.

    In retrospect, aiming for a knee or something would`ve been ideal. But a 92 year old probably wouldn`t be able to hit a knee cap of a moving target. Hell, I wouldn`t be able to do that on my first shot.

    Again, this is a 92 year old who was defending in the only way a 92 year old can. I feel so bad for him for having to go through all of this.

    What old fools like OldIdiot will never admit is they really just want an excuse to kill someone and get away with it. It`s a pathetic wannabe Charles Bronson fantasy held by little boys in rapidly aging bodies, desperately hoping no one will discover their microscopic genitals. You`re a terrible person, Ollie, and deep down, you know it.

    In what world does someone with no familiarity with his surroundings, in the dark, have the advantage over the person whose house it is? After you`ve been hit repeatedly in the head with a 2x4, or tazed, or pepper-sprayed, or anything similar, it`s really hard to shoot someone with a handgun. Hell, that`s hard in perfect conditions.

    You people are greatly undervaluing a human life. This person had friends, thoughts, emotions, a birthday, parents, etc... and was not a war-criminal, a human trafficker, or guilty of any other atrocious crime against humanity or nature. Theft never warrants death. That`s a thousand times more barbaric than cutting his hand off with a machete, or branding his forehead.

    This old man stopped defending himself and his property when he pulled the trigger. From then on, it was just killing a person.

    "After you`ve been hit repeatedly in the head with a 2x4, or tazed, or pepper-sprayed, or anything similar, it`s really hard to shoot someone with a handgun. Hell, that`s hard in perfect conditions."

    Firstly, no it`s not. Secondly, you do any of those things, I know full well you`re not armed with a firearm. Does not matter how badly you "beat the ass out of me" all I have to do at that point is grab a hold of you anywhere with one hand, and I guarantee the bullet from the other will stop you. The person defending his home. Honestly, I really hope you`re not dumb enough to attempt to go toe to toe with a home invader at some point in your life armed with pepper spray. You`re going to get yourself killed.

    Clipping someone, be it with a bullet or a 2x4 does NOTHING but immediately make that person want to kill you. If they broke into your house, they most likely have the means to accomplish that.

    And FoolsPrussia, don`t pull that weird "we weren`t there, so we can`t know" trick. That doesn`t work here. It works in something like the Trayvon Martin case.

    Here, we know exactly what happened. Crook breaks into house, busts down doors. The 92 year old has a right to defend himself and his home in the only way he can against 20 year olds. Every human has a right to live in their own home, undisturbed. Nobody should have to live in fear. What he did was brave. He stood up to bottom feeders because they had walked all over him 5 times before. I only hope the remaining 2 bottom feeders will rehabilitate themselves and turn over a new leaf.

    Calling the 92 year old a murderer and the crook a victim is creepy. It`s like the world has turn upside down.

    This man is my neighbor... a 92 year old WWII vet that lives on his own and has already had his home broken into several times. People see what they think is a fragile old man and see an opening to take advantage of him. The fact is, they messed with the wrong old man this time. Punks think they can take whatever they want and not work for anything, well I guess not all of of them stay lucky. Way to go Mr Jones, carry on!

    You`re a fapping idiot, Gremmie, but, of course, you`re too stupid to know it.

    If you actually manage to hit an intruder in the knee (not an easy shot), if has a gun, he won`t shoot you in the knee in retaliation; he will shoot you through the heart. Ask a cop what he thinks of shooting a perp in the knee. He will tell you it`s the dumbest thing you could possibly do. If you`re going to shoot someone, you shoot to stop (not necessarily to kill), and the best and surest way to stop someone is to shoot their center of mass.

    If crooks knew they could be killed trying to burlarize someone, I suspect
    they`d be less likely to try it. More homeowners should have guns and be willing
    to use them. Also, DAs need to stop prosecuting homeowners defending themselves,
    families and property.

    Yeah, anyone who has had firearms training, especially military & police, are taught to shoot center mass and after training or going into combat it becomes second nature. There you have the best chance of putting someone down and it`s a much bigger target so you`re less likely to miss. If you`re aiming to wing the guy you`ll get your dumba$$ killed quick. Warning shots work from a distance (like at a roadblock with a good 200-300 meters between you and the bad guys) but in this case you don`t have time to be f*cking around trying to get a warning shot off. It comes down to me or you, and you`re going to lose, simple as that.

    botfly, what a shame that`s how you feel. We need more McDuffs here, not fewer. I`m not condemning this man for shooting the intruders, but, it`s a shame that he didn`t feel as if he could leave the house and call the police as he left. Sounds as if that would have worked, too. Again, not condemning the man. I suppose he had every right in the world to do as he did, but, it was a damn lucky shot. A lot of times, a 0.22 will simply piss someone off. Especially if that someone is hopped up on coke or meth. He was lucky he didn`t end up beaten to death--it very easily could have gone that way (which is tragic, too, by the way). :-(

    Why should he regret anything? Surely you can only `regret` your own actions, not events over which you had no control. He took the right course of action.

    I`m not saying that everybody should immediately shoot every intruder but in this case (they had kicked open the door so clearly weren`t hoping to sneak in and pocket some handy valuables) it was clear that he was in real and immediate danger.

    Charlie Daniels "Simple man".
    Dont mess with me or my stuff and we wont have a problem.Easy.
    Screw with me and I will gladly wipe myself out just to teach a lesson.I`m spiteful that way.
    If people know terrible things await them if they get caught, they might think a little first.
    These sods think they can do what they please and nothing REALLY bad will happen.life doesn`t work like that.

    I think killing burglars is bad. The old coot`s dusty VCR was not worth a life.

    Aparently it was to the burlger who put himself in the situation where he could get shot.

    Zach82: It doesn`t matter what they were trying to take, they deserve to die. They are not just burglars, they are terrorists. They terrorized this man by repeatedly breaking into his house. The police were worthless. After 12 break-ins, they put up a camera that no one was watching.

    The only problem I have with what this guy did is he stopped shooting and let the other two get away.

    `I think killing burglars is bad.`

    Really? Always?

    I walked in on a burglar about two years ago, it was late and I was going about locking up the house when I found him in the kitchen. I don`t own a gun so shooting was never an option. Besides he was a pale scrawny little runt and I`m 6`2`` and in pretty fair shape. He babbled that he had got the wrong house, I agreed that he had and he ran out the door. I called the cops and they picked him up within an hour.

    Point is, I wasn`t in any fear for my safety. I was surprised that there was no adrenelin rush or anything other than just feeling rather pissed off. If I had felt threatened or that my family was threatened I would have used whatever came to hand (on this occassion a heavy claw hammer and my grandad`s old sword cane were within hand`s reach) and I would not have stopped until I was certain the threat had passed.

    Three thugs kicking in your door should expect a maximally violent response.

    So, just as a question, and, as I say, I`m not saying the man was wrong, but, what if, when he heard the noise downstairs, he called the cops and left the house out the front door? Sounds to me like he had plenty of time. Again, I`m not saying he was wrong in what he did, but, seems to me that that was an option.

    really? So allowing someone to rob my premises while I walk away is an option? F.uck that. What if you had to evacuate a whole family of 5? option then?

    This guy is awesome and I`d be first to step in line to replace the spent shell(s). No questions.

    The man was not only within his rights to shoot the intruder, but he was RIGHT to shoot the intruder, as well. If you disagree, well, you`re welcome to your opinion. It`s the wrong opinion, but you`re still welcome to it.

    Seriously, though. Walk out his front door and call the cops? While he was being robbed? What kind of pussy thinks that?

    What if he`d called the cops and walked away and one of the three burglars had killed him (a 90something year old) with a baseball bat? Or he`d slipped and broken his hip? Walking away isn`t always that easy at his age. Sitting where you have the advantage is probably a far better bet.

    Anyone who invades your home to burgle or otherwise should have the fear that the homeowner has the right to defend his family, property etc.
    The Government in the UK are slowly coming round to this ideal, about bloody time too.
    Although I guess its a double edged sword, if the burglar knows the homeowner has the law with him, the bugger will carry a bigger gun.
    A discussion in itself really

    Quik2TheStab-"This person had friends, thoughts, emotions, a birthday, parents, etc... "

    And that means exactly what? Now he has friend & parents that will get all emotional on his birthday and share the thought `What a [email protected] idiot he was.`

    FoolsPrussia-"You know nothing about the robber`s situation either."

    We know all we need to know. He was breaking into someone`s house in a violent manner and putting the owner in danger. There is NOTHING in his situation that would make that `alright`. He gave up his right to life right there.

    Harlekk-"This guy seems like he was just waiting for an excuse to put a bullet in someone."

    Yes, waiting in his very own home....should be charged with stalking. /sarcasm

    McDuff73-"have no sympathy for the fact a life was ended"

    Why should anyone be sympathetic to this piece of trash?

    My mind has officially been blown. It is hard to believe that some people on this thread think the homeowner should have left his own house. Even worse is having sympathy for the burglar. He was violently robbing a old man for the 5th time!

    Men nowadays are becoming pussies. If you don`t believe me, scroll up to the post "high school football rally". Screw having "sympathy" and "feelings" in a case like this...how about having consequences for a violent crime.

    @SmagBoy: Answer: Because a 92 year-old and his wife cannot outrun 3 much younger, probably armed criminals. If they went outside they`d be completely defenceless, better to try to hide in a bathroom or something, BUT much better still is defending one`s self!

    @OldIdiot, Of course you would not respond to my actual thesis, you haven`t a clue as to what makes a thesis. Let me spell it out: you are a coward. Your fantasy is that an intruder comes into your home and you get shoot this person dead without ever doing the hero work involved of determining if your house is on fire and this person is first responder. You want to kill a person because that will make a tiny little boy feel like a big man! But you aren`t, and you never will be. How many posts do you have on a website designed to waste time? I visit out of fun, you live here, because you`re tired old hermit with nothing to live for, you are indeed more dangerous than I am. Because I have something to live for and you, you do not. Sad little man.

    I feel no sympathy for the robber. No pangs of sadness, no feelings of remorse or loss. Nothing. The criminals made the choice to rob rob an old man`s home. Whose to say what they would have done to the man afterwards. I read this story about the robber getting killed, but I can just as easily find a story about robbers beating an old man in his home.

    Several weeks ago, a 74 year old man was robbed in my area. Here`s a quote from the news story: "But police say the suspect, Nick Marino, continued to beat Malpass for almost two hours. They say he was after the 74-year-old`s prescription medication, which he finally found in Malpass` pocket. Then he beat Malpass even more." Luckily the man lived, and he was released from the hospital two weeks after he was robbed.

    @oldIdiot I accept your pathetic admission that you are without argument and remain a tired old anti-American that has been defeated. My only regret would be that I have have been beating up an old man, except that I don`t regret beating up an old moron like you.

    I`ve shot a .22 rifle. It`s practically a pea-shooter. You can certainly seriously hurt some one, but to actually kill them without shooting them in the head is damn impressive.

    This is one instance where I`d actually side with MeGrendel, Ollie, and many others I usually don`t. I suppose the legal equivalent of this would be "voluntary assumption of risk," meaning that if you break into a person`s house (in Kentucky no less), you had better assume that if the owner catches you in his house he will probably shoot you. I don`t know anything about this would-be thief, and if he`s had a hard life I empathize with that to a degree, but that does not excuse breaking into a person`s house. He rolled the dice and lost, simple as that.
