    Wow, less than half a mile from where I live. Drove past it on the way to take my little girl to school this morning. Sad that someones life was taken. I too have just the one stage security system but i've got 5 of them and they all weigh 80lbs or more! I think they will take care of anyone trying to break into my house!

    I live in the Four Oaks area as well. Right now I only have the one-stage security system, but I'm going to have to look into adding that second-stage security measure.

    Dayummmmmm, they are getting closer and closer to where I live. People are not safe even in their own home. That is why I have a two stage security system.

    First the dog barks and then the gun barks. You better hope the dog bits first!

    I grew up around the Benson / Four Oaks area...I hope it was not someone I once knew. I pray for the family and friends and hope they get thru this well.

    All some people believe in is taking a life. Life in today's time is not really valued.
