    Godspeed, soldier. If I gotta go, let it be in a pile of brass.

    To all LEO who profess to be the 'front line'. (I mean no dissrespect but clarity) How could you have helped? This was the situation, at that time, and a 911 call would not have changed the situation. All free men in the USA should be able to carry and defend themselves.

    Could be that the criminals would think twice if they knew that possibly every face they saw could be able to carry and defend?

    Condolences to the family of this brave man. I hope all 3 of the scumbags get a speedy trip to the gurney and needle.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    He died doing what men do - protecting their loved ones. Prayers sent for the family and friends.

    I think the rope around the neck and a slow drop would be more appropriate.......

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

    My condolences to the family of Sam Martinez and prayers to him as he did what any honorable man would do for his family. I am bothered that I would have to agree what his family said about neighbors not calling the police which leads me to believe that they live in a high crime area.

    R.I.P. Army Private Sam Martinez..

    Hopefully the knuckledraggers will go down for a long one.

    Too bad he didn't get all three.
