This is a kid with some serious problems...this home owner should not be charged with anything, he was protecting his family.
The little fire starter needs a long vacation.

As well he should have been (shot). Dare attempt to take the lives of others, then you gotta appreciate that others might dare to refuse you ... particularly the victims in your cross hairs.
Commit an adult crime, you deserve to be treated accordingly. Commit an attempt to erase life of innocents, you deserve to be treated accordingly. Kudos on the resident on doing what needed to be done. Shame on the little cretin for his lack of moral grounding. Shame on him and his family for failing to instill a sense of humanity in the little perp.

^^ IMO, whether or not the "arson" wording is in the self-defense statutes, the reality is that torching a structure directly threatens the occupants and thus isn't materially different than someone putting a gun to your head.
I'm in this camp on this one.......
“It was a kid, you know. But he put on man shoes, now he gonna have to do man time.”
In response to the underlined above;
Arsonist are deviants, just like sex/child molesters, in that their brain waves are not moving in the right direction.
Its like a sickness that drives them.
Cold and calculating comes to mind.
Not trying to say the parents aren't somewhat at fault, but often, there is not a lot they could do, as they have a hard time picking up the signal that the arsonist is giving off.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards
If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans
Don't ever think that the reason I'm peaceful is because I don't know how to be violent

I would like to punch the author in throat!
Gorham police said they believe they have identified all parties involved in the incident and do not believe there is any immediate danger from people involved.
Whom do you suppose the police are referring too? The lone arsonist or the home owners?
I think, therefore I am...
With todays problem children I only have questions. I wish I had answers.
Headline should have read VIOLENT CRIMINAL'S CAREER ENDED EARLY WHEN SHOT BY INTENDED VICTIM. The newspaper author is a complete wet pants weenie. I'd like to see the authors address and personal details published.
