    4am this morning in my home town -
    burglar broke into house and stabbed resident several times, who died. Suspect also wounded and taken to hospital. Story is still developing so details are still fuzzy.

    Apparently the resident(s) fought back?

    From the article: "Sullivan said the suspect was subdued by other occupants at the house."
    It's sad that an innocent man died. I was happy to read that the other people in the house had the courage to stop the suspect from doing any further harm to anyone else there.

    What is a "regular robbery"? I am not trying to jerk your chain, I honestly have no idea what that term refers to or means.

    No place is safe anymore. That is why if I'm awake, my gun is either on me, or within arms reach.

    Alright, even if I'm asleep it is within arms reach too.

    Methinks he just meant "robbery" as opposed to a home invasion for some other nefarious reason. To me it sounds like people who, when speaking, always use the word "basically" in front of many of their statements; the word has no meaning in their comment.
    As far as the thread is concerned, I assume this was at night and further convinces me that when I lock my bedroom door and put a door stopper under it I am being extremely prudent and in charge of that room. You break into my home and are rummaging around to steal stuff in all the other rooms, have at it--I will not confront----stuff is insured and replaceable---I am not. You come into my bedroom, however, you will not leave the way you came in. I should note that there are no other people/kids in house--just wife and I.

    My guess is there is more to this than meets the eye. Too bad the guy got killed.
