Damn.. that was some evil shit. Although intially he had every right to protect hisself and his home he did not have to over kill them or kill them at all. He lived his whole life and I'm more then sure that he's done shit as a teen that other people did not appreciate or left them wanted to kill his ass. They were unarmed and even if he shot them once why not call the cops afterwards. Nope instead he mocked the girl as she was dying and shot her many times then recorded hisself as if he was still a victim at that point. They were petty thieves who could have turned their life around.

He is a dumb murderer who thought he was gonna get away with it. Yeah thieves but he only reported one burglary. Made up the others. Set up a juicy entrapment scene, hid in the basement, heard them trying to come in, didnt call the police. Waited for them to come to the basement for electronics. If he had got away with it he woulda killed in more vigilantee justice. A pure hateful rightwinger. Talking bout bleeding heart liberals. What an idiot making that crazed audio. Thought he was gonna use it for jury sympathy. Hegot what he deserved. Life behind iron bars. Just took those kids lives without feelings. Good riddance.

I agree, he didnt have to kill them but uh aren't you allowed to of someone trespassing or breaking into your home? I wouldn't feel safe either, crazy life lessons

the supreme court of the state has a website. on that website, you can read the decision denying him a new trial. read the decision, it lays out all the evidence and the reason why that pos is spending the rest of his life in the pokey. you have heard less than 10 minutes of smith trying to justify his actions to himself. he is right where he belongs.

So for all the psychos in the comment section : burglary = death penalty. So even though the guys in the middle ages didn't punish thieves by killing them but "just" by chopping their hands off, some "modern" people think death is good and justified for a case of burglary ? When the idiots get involved with justice and morals ... And they think the human being has evolved ? With all that science ? still reasoning like peasants from the middle ages ? Christianity has still some work to do.

It had to be done but he crossed the line after they were neutralize and he decided to kill them now that's murder he could of stopped and called police and the police would of taken out the trash... and he would of never been arrested!

He could have subdued the woman after she was incapacitated from the first shot and subsequently alert the police, but then he decided he wanted to act like Dirty Harry and now his home is the state prison.

They fucking took the guys war medals and other stuff from his military life, broke into guys house several times, the man had enough, I can say in those shoes I would probably have done the same.
X X (3 months ago)
Also to the people who say why did he kill them, uhh why did they break into his house multipule times? It's not peoples job to raise your fucking kids, i never broke into any place in my life because i knew i could wind up dead. Play stupid games win stupid prizes, while im not glad they are dead, I just kinda think well that figures.

i broke into someone's home years ago just to use their phone (stranded in middle of nowhere PA at 3am on the side of 80,no car/shelter) i had no ill intentions and so i guess i really didn't even consider getting shot. i guess I'm a naive yank. thank god

It's only justified to kill someone only when you're in fear of your life. Sure, they were going to steal his stuff, but they weren't there to kill the guy. Idk if they had even weapons on them. So yeh still illegal & make him do his time.
MrGabrielJude (3 months ago)
Murder of 2 thieves.. during a break in...Really, that just sounds assinine. Just cuz they were teens, it’s a murder, if they were 2 full grown adult rapists or serial killers, would you still title this “murder?” Dumb ass.

I think what got him put away was more the fact that he shot the girl multiple times even after she was neutralized and on the floor already as well as him talking to himself saying weird shit

I'm all for disabling threats trespassing on your property. But I draw the line at executing unarmed and neutralized opponents. This is murder plain and simple.
valensmann (2 months ago)
@A_Stoic_Master good God man. Can you be more convoluted? What the hell are you rambling about? That I said it was murder, is that it? By definition murder is the unlawful killing of another person. And since he was tried and convicted it is murder. Q.E.D.
A_Stoic_Master (2 months ago)
@valensmann remarked: "I'm not quite sure as to what you want me to make an argument for. To be brief I merely stated my opinion on the matter." You are entitled to your subjective opinion, however, you are not entitled to your own objective facts. You also said: "So how autistic are you?" How does that follow? Are you also claiming autistic individuals cannot make true utterances? If so, Here is your reduction to absurdity: 1. Autistic Bob claims 2+2=4 2. However but, Bob is autistic and cannot be trusted. 3. Therefore 2+2 does not equal 4. Attack the argument, not the person.

@A_Stoic_Master I'm not quite sure as to what you want me to make an argument for. To be brief I merely stated my opinion on the matter. So how autistic are you?
A_Stoic_Master (2 months ago)
@valensmann remarked: "I'm all for disabling threats trespassing on your property. But I draw the line at executing unarmed and neutralized opponents. This is murder plain and simple." - Do you have a philosophical argument to support this claim that doesn't rely on an arbitrary opinion?

Cody Sawyer (3 months ago)
There was WAY too much satisfaction from this guy. I feel he may have known it was them before this event. So many questions on how police handled the prior investigations into the burglaries. I feel like this could have been caught sooner before a couple of young teens were killed.
TheMightyOdin (3 months ago)
Having your home robbed is psychologically traumatizing. Having it happen a half dozen times would drive me crazy. How the fuck could you sleep in your house if people were breaking in every other week?

Can agree about his statement of being a nice man, and people missusing you or thinking your a sucker. That always leads to something tragic physically after having your mental, emotional, and spirit shyt on.

YouOnlyLiveTwice (3 months ago)
You reap what you sow. In this case, that was true for both parties. If the guy wouldn't have recorded himself executing them like a psycho he wouldn't be in prison right now. Hope the teens felt that whatever the fuck kept them continuing to come back and rob from this guy was worth their life because that's what they paid for it.

Is everyone in the comment section retarded. Did these teens physically harm anyone? Ok they're bastards for breaking into houses and deserve jail for it. But this man literally MURDERED the teens, the first shot came without warning. The 2nd shot was a murder. He killed him with the intend to kill him (totally irrational reaction to prevent a burglary, since his life wasnt even threatened) And the girl? Shot her 5 times after he already shot her on the ground, just to then give her a headshot aswell. A very brutal double murder. This man is pure evil hearted and has no place in society.
MalluofAllmallus (3 months ago)
I'm glad all 3 are gone cuz even tho he had the right to protect his home, he was a psychopath, he could've shot both of them just once then call the police for an ambulance. and for the burglars, I don't give no sympathy for evil-minded teenagers who are in the ages of NEAR COLLEGE AGE to have that kind of mindset to rob people and not live a civil life.
SELEH HAYAT (3 months ago)
For the people who r taking those two asshole's side! Did that guy knew that those were two kids or adult or professional thieves?😑 What if those two kids were armed or what if the veteran didn't have any gun! And if those two kids had caught him barehandly, m quite sure that they would have killed him or knocked him out brutally give some life threatening injury!(I would have done that if I were a burglar!)

Everyone is saying that the man was right and the kids deserved it. But think about it what would you do if those two kids were yours? They were bloody wrong to constantly robbing that same man over and over again but he could have fired a warning shot or shoot them in the leg right? But never ever kill any children! So if they deserved such a horrible death than this man deserves the pains of Hell!

Derek the half a bee (3 months ago)
He wasn't jailed because he shot intruders in self defense and they died. That would have been justified. He was jailed because he deliberately executed someone laying bleeding on the floor after they were obviously no longer a threat, as evidenced by what he did. He dragged the girl he already shot multiple times into another room, tossed her onto the body of her dead cousin, then placed the gun under her chin, and shot her. THAT is what makes it murder. That action was clearly not in self defense or defense of property. That is the act of a psychopath. This is mirrored in the fact that he just left the bodies there and didn't even call the police until the next day.
robert fortune jr (3 months ago)
Dude was wanting to murder them guys
M W (3 months ago)
He shot several times after they were already down. That's murder. Irregardless of them breaking in or not. You should to disable not to kill, unless they don't stop afterwards. Disable and get the police to take care of it. Furthermore the punishment should be proportional to the crime, and getting murdered is not that. Also after hearing the recording, please lock this man up. He sounds like a danger to society.

Good...harassing a veteran that’s what you get. Putting this mans life in danger breaking into his home over half a dozen times? These kids went in looking for a victim and they found something else.
