    Bad: House robbed twice in one night; STL

    I work with one of the people that occupied (occupied!) this house, and heard about it from them today. What a terrible, terrible thing they had to go through. Makes me glad I don't live TOO close to Downtown St. Louis. Also really made me think how grateful I am that I have the means to defend myself should this happen to me. I wish they could have said the same thing though...maybe the thugs wouldn't have came back for more a second time.

    Same House Broken Into Twice Overnight - KTVI

    "SOUTH ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI-FOX2now.com) - There have been a pair of home invasions in south St. Louis overnight. But the particular pair of crimes have a common denominator, the same house was the target of both invasions. The first break break in happened around 1:00am Tuesday morning in the 2200 block of Osage Street at South Broadway. The homeowner called police saying that five black men, all dressed in black, kicked in the front door of his home. The men then went to a rear bedroom and fired several rounds, hitting the homeowner's son in the arm. He was taken to the hospital but is expected to be okay. The men ran out the front door.

    About four hours later, neighbors called police saying they saw someone loading items into a van outside of the home. According to witnesses, it appears the robbers broke in through the back door. There was one person home at the time and that person was held at gunpoint. the suspects got away with two flat screen televisions.

    If you have any information, contact St. Louis City Police. "

    They would have met the AR10 with Hornady TAP rounds.

    You take my 42" you might as well take my 7.62mm on your way out of my house. And worry about compensation for dropping my television on your way out the back door. You wont be able to pay me back.

    This guy needs a gun AND a dog. Twice in one night? He's a slow learner, but I bet he converts to a pro-gunner rather quickly now.

    If you work with this fellow, why not suggest that he find out about the 2A? Explain the purpose of the RKBA.

    Sounds like a group split from the original robbery crew, and went back for a few more items spotted on the first trip.

    Unless they change some stuff, it will happen to them again. They have been marked as a easy target.

    Home invasion, twice in one night?

    What is going on there, or who lives there, which would put a house on someone's, or several someones', radar screen?

    Yes. No duty to retreat in your dwelling, residence, or vehicle. Use of deadly force in this situation is justified in the law and such fact shall be an absolute defense to criminal prosecution or civil liability.

    Doesn't apply to premises such as real property or buildings. I think that means you can't go outside, use deadly force, and enjoy the same protections.

    They say that when you have a home robbery the BG come back later. They come for the stuff that was missed the first time. This situation is crazy, crazy like in comedy crazy. At least the other person was not shot or killed.

    Wow. I can't help but to wonder if the BGs didn't have the mindset. No one will be home. They will all be at the hospital with the kid we shot a couple of hours ago.

    That was my first thought as well. The whole situation is fubar.

    Hey, c'mon. It's not like the guy's gonna find a decent rottweiler and Glock 19 at 2am, no matter how motivated he might be.
