Great story. It's a shame someone had to lose his life, but good job by the homeowner.
My FAVORITE part of the whole report was the last five words..."He will not be charged"
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

An unusual, un-biased report in the story:
"The number of killings nationally of a felon during the commission of a felony by private citizens has increased in recent years, from 196 in 2005 to 278 in 2010, acording to FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics."
