I'd be willing to be the homeowner never WANTED to shoot someone to defend his home and family (although good for him - if you have a gun, and you shoot, you better be willing to shoot to kill).

    No matter what this is a tragedy, because someone is dead, and the homeowner is so scared for himself and his family. But for the DA to continue to draaaaag this out is only doing MORE damage.
    I agree with calling this an accident to be wrong as well.

Why harass him...it's not like he was out to get BO...IT WAS AN ACCIDENT. ACCIDENTS HAPPEN....Again it is so sad for the loss of Bo, no parent should ever lose a child, let alone losing a 2nd child in such a short time. It is a scary world we live in...and just like any other accident, this man should be forgiven. It is sick to hear that this man is getting phone calls and is scared for his and his families lives. There is nothing that can be done to bring BO back, but there is something that can be done for this man that already has to live with the fact he shot out of fear. I am a mom, and although I don't have a gun to shoot...I have a baseball bat...and you better believe...if someone came in my home....I would beat them bloody with my bat...to protect my kids...as I think many others would if they were in the homeowners shoes. Again this homeowners are loving family people who deserve to be forgiven.

    Again lots of sympathy to both families

    I understand that you want to help your friend but you also got to remember that this incident is not an accident. It may be tragic but it is not an accident. The homeowner did what he needed to do for the protection of his family. Bo on the other hand was a troubled criminal with no direction and thus his poor decision created his fate.

    What is going on is that they are consulting with the legal staff in finding a loophole to charge this homeowner. They want to cover all avenues before making a decision.

    Was talked about on WISN radio on the Vicki McKenna show this am! I did not hear the entire segment. But several callers called in and seemed to be clueless as to home defense. So again the media paints this "Christ like" picture of the intruder and the "evil" homeowner with the gun. Vicki did a good job explaining it. Anybody that hear the segment will now have a better understanding.

    My question is: If BO was such a nice guy and had such good friends and all good kids, why is the homeowner getting death threats? Why is the homeowner not able to go to work? If somebody is killed in a car accident the other parties don't usually make death threats. You either forgive them or don't. IT WAS NOT AN ACCIDENT! The underaged drunken 20 year broke into a home and got shot. Yes still very sad for all involved.

    Another headline from the Milwaukee Journal
    Slinger case echoes national furor over Trayvon Martin - JSOnline

    We may have a decision by the end of the week from the DA.

    What a slanted story.

    MISTOOK him for an intruder? MISTOOK HIM for an intruder? He WAS an intruder. Did he belong there? NO! Putting aside the entire property part, he entered a COVERED PORCH. There's no mistaking that he was an intruder. The only mistake was on the intruder's part of choosing to go where he was not legally entitled and it was a fatal mistake that the INTRUDER made, not the homeowner.

    No.... What I see is a gutless, jellyfish sitting in the prosecutor's office, too scared to make a decision that might cost him votes in the next election so he drags a good man through hell to cover his political @!

    I am starting to feel that the media needs to be regulated.

    The DA has chosen not to press charges!

    Glad to hear things worked out for the homeowner, the second link is the actual report from the DA if you want to read it.

    I am glad the homeowner is in the clear.. My sympathies go to both families and the community of Slinger, this was a tough ordeal

    Thanks for the links. The actual decision was a very interesting read. And glad for the homeowner and the decision points out most of what we've all said as well.
