    Here is another one-sided article from the media.

    Police: Shooting Was Self-Defense - Louisville News Story - WLKY Louisville

    The article did not say if the owner was CC, but would have to had it on his person to act this quickly.

    Police: Shooting Was Self-Defense
    Earl Springer, Dazmond Turner Shot To Death

    POSTED: 4:13 pm EDT June 4, 2008
    UPDATED: 6:20 pm EDT June 4, 2008


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Two teens are dead, but police aren't charging the man who shot them with a crime.


    The shooting happened Tuesday at a house in west Louisville.

    "For sure, there's not a doubt in my mind, my wife and I would be dead if I didn't do what I did," said property owner Billy Jackson.

    Jackson said he was sprucing up an apartment in the house he owns at 3517 West Broadway when two masked men forced their way inside. He said one had a large gun, and threatened to kill him and his wife.

    "I figured I was going to die and they were going to die, too," said Jackson. "I faked a heart attack; shot him in the side."

    The coroner released the names of the alleged intruders late Wednesday afternoon. They are Earl Springer and Dazmond Turner, both 19.

    "It just seems like I'm going to lay down, wake up and this is not happening," said Stephanie Roach, Turner's great aunt.

    She said Turner's death doesn't seem real. She said he once had dreams of NBA stardom, but she never dreamed he would be accused of invading a home.

    "It's just something that he wouldn't do and it's been eating at me all night long. It's like, no, that's not Daz," she said. "I don't know if he was forced into doing it, but that is not my nephew."

    "At least one of the suspects was armed with a handgun," said Metro Police Detective Phil Russell. "The property owner was assaulted. He sustained minor injuries."

    Police said Springer died at the scene, while Turner died early Wednesday morning at University Hospital.

    "They will confer with the commonwealth attorney's office in order to determine if charges need to be placed," Russell said. "At this time in the investigation, it looks as though this was self-defense."

    Family members said Turner was once a star point guard for Valley High School who was working toward getting his GED while preparing to be a first-time father this summer.

    Roach said family members thought Turner was out of town at the time of the shooting. Now they wish he would have followed through on those plans.

    "That's what's shocking everybody. He was supposed to be in Florida to reunite with his mother and his sisters," Roach said. "Now, they're on their way to bury him."
    "I don't know if he was forced into doing it, but that is not my nephew."

    Yeh, right. It's NEVER the perp's fault.

    They broke into the house masked and armed, how clearer can this be. They are always lovely kids after they get shot.

    If those 2 were "good" kids, I sure would not want to see what 2 "bad" kids would do.

    He's a great kid...

    Working on his GED...code for quit high school...

    Preparing to be a first-time father...HOW?...by knocking up some party girl, quitting high school, and robbing honest people?

    I deal with "Daz-type" kids every day...
    Kids like this brag about having their 'jail time' merit badge...being a thug, and enjoying the 'easy life' that doesn't require a high school diploma...
    I tell them that the money may be great, but the retirement plan stinks...either long-term jail or death.

    This kid was a (an apparent) loser who refused to 'cut it' with his studies...who found it easier to put on a mask and use a gun to terrify hard-working homeowners into giving up their 'stash'...he got exactly what he deserved.

    Congrats to these homeowners......and it was a '2 fer'...

    Actually, the article did pretty well, IMO. I didn't find the word 'victim' anywhere. Better than average, as far as I can tell.

    Good kids my foot.

    They would've victimized many other people in their lives if they hadn't been shot.

    Good riddance.

    I have heard this sort of thing coming from the parents of a well known gangbanger who broke into their neighbors house while trying to evade police... the parents claim that their POS criminal son could have been asked to leave and he was no threat to the victim (though he had a LONG criminal history with assaults and battery.)
