    now, this is what guns are supposed to be used for. not often do we hear someone was shot who was the criminal attempting to cause harm to a would-be victim and it was a true use of self-defense. i hope he doesn’t die, he should go to jail for a very long time with the knowledge that he’s a big failure and he’s the loser this time around. good going citizen glad you’re ok.

    Victims WINNING!!!!

    He, along with Isaiah Washington have been burglerizing homes in my neighborhood since early last year. I don’t wish death upon him. However, I hope he has learned his lesson that the victimizer is not always the winner. God see’s all!!!! This young man comes from a family of some well educated and god fearing church leaders, who need to stop turning their noses up and help the weaker links in the chain. The young can be saved from themselves! Charity starts at home and then spreads abroad. This is an outwardly respectful young man that has gone down the wrong path. Though I was a victim, I still pray for him and the guys that he associates with in him criminal activity. I pray even harder for myself especially when they walk past my house and look at me like they did something cool when they broke into my home, as i refrain from taking vengeance and commiting more black on black crime. They say turnabout is fair play!!!!
