Denial Ain't Just a River In Egypt
Reaction to Shooting of Home Invader

The family and friends of people never like to admit that their loved-one might not be so lovable in everyone's eyes. Esperance Shooting Victim's Fiancee: ‘He Was a Big, Playful Teddy Bear’ - Edmonds, WA Patch

Here is the facts - they aren't given right up front. The mushy, feel-good, let's all feel sorry for the dead home-invader stuff comes first. But I like facts best.
Talley, 26, was allegedly shot and killed by a homeowner in the 8900 block of 225th Place Southwest, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office, which is investigating the shooting.

Although no arrests have been made, sheriff spokesman Kevin Prentiss says preliminary information indicates Talley is suspected of breaking into a residence at that location and was allegedly shot by the homeowner, identified only as a 25-year-old man.
The opening of the article, that includes a picture of the dead guy with his infant son, goes on about how he was "a good father" and "engaged to be married." As if any of that makes a difference to the guy whose home he broke into.
