    Arm yourself indeed! If more burglars got their heads blown off during home invasions, I dare say you would see a dramatic drop in this type of crime.

    What a terrible tragedy. The callous attitudes of the perpetrators makes it even more brazen. When Alvarez was arrested, he became uncooperative and began yellimg "You don't mess with the DaJesus Man!!"

    "Wonder if any of three were here legally?"

    That is really a superfluous question.

    "Bond was denied to both men."


    And this should be SOP in all cases where murder, or child cases or domestic violence.

    God bless.

    dsal68..."you are putting fuel in the fire"...No need to stick your head in the sand and pretend this problem does not exhist, it will only get worse if ignored. And that is exactly what our NC government and US government is doing...ignoring a growing problem.

    prayin4tr: Yep, I agree. It also makes no sense that people who kill other people are let back out on the streets again to do it again

    Same applies to drunk drivers.

    Yet, it happens and will continue to do so because the suits and robes do nothing but makes excuses.
