    Scary comments from people who don't know the whole story -- Slinger, WI

    Alleged intruder shot and killed by homeowner | FOX6Now.com

    The comments of the people interviewed in the video, and those who had to type their comments after reading the article scare me. Pretty shoddy reporting too if you ask me.

    Perhaps shot in the house and tried to get back out afterwards... still, it says he broke into the home - do stupid things and pay the consequences.

    I read all the comments earlier.

    The way it reads is:

    -Someone called the cops on the underage drinking party.
    - 20 year old supposedly broke into the screened in sunroom (Porch from the article) of the shooter to hide from cops and stayed they for roughly an hour before the shooting.
    - 20 year old was supposedly not so drunk that he was unable to leave the shooters house during that hour but did not.

    Looks like an unfortunate situation but in my opinion a justified shoot.

    You unlawfully and forcefully enter a home in SC, you will be dealt with in a manner not to your liking.

    When you click on the link just type in intruder shot by homeowner and it will bring up the story and video, they have removed the comments though.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    It appears the comments section has been removed.

    I'm not sure about what is so scary about the comments from the people in the video report. Sounds like pretty typical responses from people who live in a relatively crime free sleepy little town.

    What he said. Sounds like all they had was incomplete reporting and were not making judgments either way. My little town would be the same way.

    The media is being biased towards this whole issue. They are pushing for this homeowner to be charged.
