    It's a shame that it was just a youngin being a teenager but he shouldn't have been breaking into a house with a knife either. it's almost remarkable how frequently this situation is played out in our country these days

    Another one that failed to make the right choice in life. What a shame his parents didn't teach him any better.

    Hmm...did the kid die by lead or by suicide via rapid impact with a hard surface(aka jumping out of the window). If they ever decided to charge the homeowner and claim it wasn't self defense, I'd argue the kid committed suicide by jumping.
    Sorry judge, that poor thing jumped right out of the window. There was no way I could get there in time...

    I feel no pain or anguish over it. Age doesn't matter when some dim bulb has broken into your home in the middle of the night intent to do harm. They could be 10 or 16 or 80. I don't give two rats butts. Fact is, someone made their decision and acted on it and lived(albeit for a few brief seconds) with the consequences.

    Kudo's to the homeowner and hopefully he comes out of the hospital ok(chest pains).

    I've worked with kids diagnosed with emotional disturbance in the past. Some kids really are dangerous. Sometimes it's a long history of chronic abuse, and sometimes it's just a mis-wired nervous system. I don't think someone would have to think a bear was a 'bad guy' to shoot it if it was attacking you.

    You come in my place with a knife, you will probably get shot. Any moral judgement would be after the fact.

    It is sad that a teenager was committing a home invasion and was killed in the process, but like I now say........whatever.

    How many times have these folks been told that if you invade someone's home there is a good possibility that if the homeowner is there, you might get injured or killed in the process? Obviously they just are not getting it.

    It is sad for the homeowner to have to resort to deadly force to repel an invader, but like others have said, when someone has broken into a home, I doubt very seriously age is going to matter at that point. I will protect my family and property to the maximum, and if that means killing the intruder, so be it. Sounds cold, but that is the hard fact of life that these types need to learn and understand.

    I have to be cautious since I have roommates, but if I did not... and someone broke into my home... Shoot first. Ask questions later. If you have broken into my house, you ARE an immediate deadly threat. Kudos to this man for protecting himself from this ridiculous criminal element that exists in society, today.

    Recently, a 16 year old here, has been charged with murder in the death of a St. Petersburg policeman who approached him early in the A.M. Age is no longer a factor in violence. In fact, I would be more afraid of a youth with a weapon than an adult.
