    Don't know about this one yet

    If it was a good shoot congrats to the young man. The 2 men he shot have been in all kinds of trouble. Something about this is just a little fishy to me.

    KNOXVILLE - The shootings that killed two men identified as burglars in a South Knox County mobile home will be referred to the Knox County District Attorney General's Office, according to the Knox County Sheriff's Office.

    Sheriff's spokeswoman Martha Dooley would not elaborate this afternoon on the reason for the review. No charges have been filed against Douglas Jordan III, who shot both of the black-clad intruders as he returned to his Love Lane mobile home off the 8000 block of Chapman Highway at 11:18 p.m. Sunday.

    Authorities identified one of the dead men as Jimmy Cannon, 39, of Knoxville. Cannon had no local criminal history, but he had served time in prison for armed robbery in Georgia, Dooley said.

    The second burglar's identity has not been released, pending notification of next of kin.

    "According to officers, the men were burglarizing the home when Jordan arrived," Dooley said.

    Both men were dressed in black. One man wore a ski mask while the second wore a bandana over his face, she said.

    When Jordan arrived, the men "tried to overpower him," Dooley said, but he was armed and shot the men.

    "Both were dead when officers arrived," Dooley said.

    A lot of people on the KNS site are questioning it. Just because he lived in a trailer, in "that part of town"

    Trailer, duplex, mansion. Doesn't matter. It was his home and he has a right to defend it.

    You're right it doesn't!!! We need to protect and respect each and every person's god given rights regardless of their race, religion, status, tax bracket, etc. We are all human beings equal in accordance. If the story is actually true as reported, this man had every right to defend his life and property.

    Uh, I don't find anything fishy about it yet... unless they were there to steal drugs which there is no indication of that.

    It's a good thing the guy took care of the burglers before they worked their way to the "other" side of town.

    I don't care what they were looking for, they got what they deserved. Even crooked people have the right to defend themselves. Two dead criminals at the hand of another criminal are still two dead criminals.
