    Once again, it's the mindset, not the tool. Beware the resolute homeowner who will defend his own.

    Kudos to the reporter for not identifying the victims by name, although "end of the street" and a picture of the home doesn't exactly keep them anonymous.

    Question (rhetorical) - why was that worthless piece of garbage out of jail? Let's hope it wasn't because he was paroled.

    Lastly, at least we won't be hearing from his momma about why the nasty homeowner didn't fire a warning shot or just shoot her sonny boy in the leg...

    We need an immediate ban on hi-cap hands. There is no reasonable person who needs more than 6 fingers.

    Good for this homeowner, I hope there is no long term mental distress. I would think strangling someone would be more traumatic than shooting someone, since you are up close to that one.

    Last year a woman did the same thing to an intruder, caught him from behind and strangle the mother dead.

    As well last year an American tourist on a tour bus that was stopped in IIRC the Domincan Republic by bandits toward a strong arm robbery, so he got up from his seat to fight the first/nearest bandit and not only strangled what was an armed attacker into submission but broke his clavicle before ultimately killing him by strangulation. That dude was a former marine circa Korea pushing 80s yrs. old (!).

    Both items then made national news.

    Strangulation. It took that intruder about 4.5 minutes to turn into a ghost. Enough time to reflect on his soon to be over life. A fitting end.

    As a former student of martial arts, it is quite easy to kill someone with choking methods if you know the techique and apply it just right.

    Crushing the windpipe with a blow by the hand or by wrapping the arms around someone's neck and cutting off their air supply are two of those techniques that I learned. It doesn't take long to die either, just a matter of a minute or two.

    Maybe that is why choking is considered a lethal thread in many states? I'm betting so.

    and all that time he thought the guy was struggling to escape, and he was only struggling in an attempt to breath.

    Yep...As well likely the intruder could not communicate this ether for lack of ability to breathe and get air across his vocal chords. A catch-22.

    To the opposite there have been cases where persons being assaulted in such manner (they were not threats like this guy) have thought to feign death in hope that the strangler would let up, and it has worked.

    Dude might have tried that...Or better yet not knocking on then kicking in people doors to invade houses and be assaultive in the first place. A catch-22.

    Absolutely Janq, very good point. This guy put himself into a potentially deadly situation either by the use of physical force or a weapon by the homeowner. It is clear that he is at fault for his own death by his actions. Still, the thugs don't get it that this could really happen and still want to commit home invasions and other crime.
