    Bad: 4 year old shot in home invasion

    Barricaded in bedroom with the rest of the family... Invader couldn't get in... Opened fire..

    4 year old on life support...

    Story here: http://www2.nbc17.com/news/2012/nov/...on-ar-2789746/

    How safe is your "safe room?"

    Hope they catch this one... Possibly related to other area home invasions.
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    Really sad for that poor child. I hope they catch the creep who did this.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    That 'suspect' ......... well, I should'nt say what I wish for him here.

    I sure hope that child, and his parents, pull through this.

    Unfortunatly business owners are being targeted more and more these days. Home invasions are on the news more and more it seems as well. As the police said this guy was probably targeted because someone new he had money in the house instead of the bank. If he was even a worker and not a business owner its the same, still a target. Who knows what the story is there.. Hope the child pulls through and they get the dirt bag.

    After reading the article, IMO, this sure doesn't seem like a random act.

    Sure hope the little guy pulls through and the scumbag is caught.
