    I agree with the above statement.
    A dead thug is a good thug.
    I think part of the problems with some of these thugs is they get XXXXX when you fight back and kill them. More and more people are refusing to become victims and defending themselves. Now of course there are times when you can't, being ambushed, or some XXXXXX just pulls a gun on you you before you can do anything that kind of crap happens but for me if I can stop a threat with causing injury to me or those aroud me.........................I'm going to.
    And just as an LOL Sometimes I wish the site was PG 13 rated just to say postive things in a "robust" manner.
    Good job by an armed citizen.

    It appears that Retiredonce's intuition is correct; that this was not their first dance:

    Police look into crimes like the Aiken County gun shop break-in | The Augusta Chronicle

    At least it was the last dance for one of them.

    And God Bless our local LEOs and SC's Castle Doctrine:

Our LEO's are our neighbors, they sit next to us in church, they are my neighbor's kid, we bump into them in the grocery check-out line. There is no line of distinction between ordinary citizens and our law enforcement, other than that they take dirtbags off the street for a living, and genuinely try to help the ones that can be helped. I cannot fathom an "us vs. them" mentality in North Augusta/Aiken.

    When you assume ownership of the Forum then you may run it any way you like.

    Okay ...you're robbing a GUN STORE?!... Good thing the owner lived right there. Glad he was ready to go, and nailed the BG's.

    Glad they didn't get away with it. I'd buy the guy a steak and a few beers.

    You can be quite positive and quite robust without resorting to profanity or vulgarity. All it takes is a bit of imagination.

    Update:

    Bail denied (not only do we have great LEO's, but smart Judges too). I hear that the other career-criminal not pictured in this article actually had part of his brain shot away. Unfortunately, that was an organ that he wasn't using to begin with, so he's fine.

    Judge Doyett has always been entertaining and a fair judge IMO. This was the right call if there ever was one.

    Yes, but either the DA is hamstrung by the statutes or the DA's got his/her head stuck. Why in the world the surviving two didn't get slapped with a Felony Murder charge is beyond me.

    They're toying around with only "first-degree burglary, grand larceny and weapons" charges. Doesn't seem right, not by a country mile.

    You're right. I don't know enough state law to tell if felony murder could be applied?

    Theyre going away for a loooong time regardless, but without the "cool, hardened, attempted murder charge". Instead they go in as thieves, hopefully to get punked while in the clink.
