It was bound to happen sooner than later. The number of break-ins and burglaries to homes and businesses up and down the Ohio River Valley has gotten out of hand. And the fact that a store owner who happens to also live at his business felt threatened enough to shoot and kill someone reportedly trying to break in is the result of too many unsolved and unpunished crimes likes these. I've said it before in this blog that it's not right to be afraid in your own home. It's not the way America works that we should fear coming home to a burglarized home or business. We can lock our doors, employ a security system or own a large dog and the crimes still happen. Do I feel bad that an 18-year-old man-kid is dead at the end of a gun barrel? Of course, I do. I'm a mother and that would do me in to know that's how my son died, but I also understand being on the other side of the door. Where will it end? Heard there was another burglary in Warwood Terrace the other night. The burglars took all the Christmas gifts they could carry....Happy holidays.
