Should We Feel Sorry for the Dead Home Invader?

kare11.com :: KARE 11 TV - Friends say teen shot in elderly man's home was a good kid While the piece itself is biased, the headline has to be the most ridiculous thing I have seen in ages.

Friends can call him whatever they want, but this home invader was shot by a homeowner defending himself.

Friends can call him a good kid, but he wrote about smoking, drinking and marijuana "often." Does this sound like the profile of a good kid?

Do good kids get sent to the "alternative" high school because of truancy problems?

This whole story - starting with the headline - is nothing more than a blatant attempt to lionize the criminal and demonize the 73-year-old man who shot a home invader.

Anti-gun bias in the news? Must be my imagination.
