    Convicted killer arrested Greer home invasion and shootout

    Noelle Kachinsky with credit to "Herald Journal"
    Published: August 20, 2009

    A man is behind bars Thursday morning after being charged in a home invasion and shooting.

    According to our sister-station WSPA’s coverage partners at the Herald Journal the suspect is a convicted killer. Authorities in Greer said 37-year-old Ronnie Cleveland Swofford followed a man into his home on Memorial Drive Extension on July 27th and shot him.

    The victim returned fire on Swofford. He faces multiple charges including assault and battery with intent to kill and burglary.

    Swofford’s arrest comes almost 16 years after he was arrested in the 1993 murder of Bobby Owens in Spartanburg County.

    He pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter three days into the trial and was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
    Not only a plea down but actually served what -- assuming normal delay in trials, what maybe 15 years.

    I think this BG needs a one-way trip to the local PD range.

    I guess he didn't "learn anything" while he was in prison, and how in the world did he make parole?

    Good that the homeowner was able to draw down and fire on this dirtbag, but, since he didn't hit the BG, I'd say more range time is in order.

    Now the authorities need to lock him up until he's dead.

    Once again, if it's not obvious, the original posters should mention the state where the story originates. Greer, AZ? Greer, SC?

    This is exactly the problem in our society. This guy commits murder and gets out to do it again. He'll get another gun...ignoring many laws.
    The local politicians will want more gun laws that only effect the GG's, when they should be using the present laws to put the BG's away forever, or possibly longer.

    We are way too soft on some types of criminal behavior.

    But it's not his fault, it was his upbringing and bad childhood that caused him to turn to a life of crime. We should be sympathetic and give the BG a chance and another and another... Judges that rule with empathy are a stain on the judicial process.

    He pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter three days into the trial and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. There you go right there...

    The DA should not have allowed such a light plea, and the judge should have denied the plea.. Sentence the MAXIMUM PUNISHMENT for the crime. Criminals only learn more devious methods for criminal activity and are even more dangerous when released from prison. Now there may be a small percentage that are actually rehabilitated.. But only a small part

    I agree.

    However, I'd still like someone "sentenced to 25 years in prison" to spend 25 years in prison -- not be out to kill again in half that.

    Bad writing, too. It looks like, based on the paragraphs and lack of a subject in the following sentence after "The victim...," that the VICTIM was charged.

    You expect the ability to write as well as the ability to slant the news in the media?
