How many of you have called Young and told him what to do with his bill?
Hi all -
This is my first post, but I have been following the story closely, because I know the homeowner's wife. The most recent story seems to indicate that the DA will make a decision today on charging (or hopefully NOT) the homeowner.
The homeowners are actually in hiding, due to the number of threats they have received. They can't go to work, either, and they're worried for their children. All of Bo's friends indicating that "Bo wasn't in the house" or so wrong...he wasn't just on the enclosed porch...he had actually ENTERED the home when he was shot. I'm not a gun owner, but I support this law 100% - I don't care who you are, or what you're doing, if you come into my house at 2am, and you're drunk and belligerent (which he was), I'm going to get you out of the house by any means necessary - and if I had a gun, that's would be the means.
From the information I have been told and I believe it is pretty dependable, the police made contact with the home owner of where the party was being held. The party was actually inside of the garage. THAT home owner (possibly a parent to the host of the party) went back to the garage and kicked the door in on his own garage for the police. As the police entered the garage, the kids all ran out of another door and scattered throughout the neighborhood. BO ran and hide in the enclosed porch of the shooters residence. The Home owner was awaken and proceeded to investigate with the gun. The home owner discovered BO and told him not to move several times, BO then disregarded the warnings not to move and BO lunged towards the home owner giving him no other option but to defend himself.
If those really are the facts, I feel that the home owner did act reasonable by shooting the suspect. It will be interesting to see what actual facts come out of this case.
He was a good kid... how can you say stuff like this about somone you dont even know . Just because you looked up his records that gives you a right to bash a kid thats not even here to defend himself . Im sure you have or at least know someone who drank underage before so lets not act all inocent here im sure he wasnt the only one who ran from the cops that night he just happend to run in someones porch and some stupid person that shouldnt own a gun shoot and killed a great kid for no reason.. And for you people cutting down his mom.. come on if this was your kid that got shot you would want that same thing to happen to the person that shot them. so stop giving her grief about her son she just lost.

Actually underage drinking and breaking and entering are crimes!Friends say even though Bo has had past ruins with the law, what happened early Saturday was no crime. These friends want the shooter to face justice.
While it is sad the 20 year old is dead it is a fact he is responsible for his actions. He was a punk his record shows it. Maybe if they had held him accountable sooner it would not have come to this.
The people that had the party are the ones that should go to jail for a long time.
But not in Wisconsin we blame the victim it is our way. He broke in a 2am that is the fact that caused his death.
I don't feel good about people dying from gunshots. An old timer once told me about a break in... and the word he kept using was "inestimable". And I agree with this wisdom. People willing to unlawfully enter your home are willing to do "inestimable" harm to you and your family. I don't condemn this young man for wanting to skate the law and party. The law, IMO, shouldn't be regulating what he does to his body. But too bad his sobbing mother did not impart on to him the sanctity of a another man's... ANOTHER FATHER'S home... People with good intentions have no business uninvited in another person's home at ANY time of day, much less in the early hours of the morning.
