    When you make the choice to break into a house, you have to be ready for the homeowner to defend it and protect themselves. Nothing is worth dying for.
    It seems like the working populace is always being victimized. Burglars, identity theft, scam artists, tax man, beggars.... every one has their hands in the pocket of the working class.

    I hope it wasn't an innocent mistake first off-but, on the other side of the coin, if there was someone breaking into a home and got shot, well...they made that choice. Now the homeowner has to deal with that, as well as the thief, who started that ball rolling. Break into someone's home, be prepared to die--then let you family say how good you were while they lower you into the ground. Only your family will cry...nobody else will.
