    There are 2 sides to every story and some of you people know the story or the reason things were done but like a couple people have said it will all come out in the end and when it does you can all eat every word you said before people judge I wish they would know the story before

    Agree with T, there are 2 sides to this story. Praying for the truth to be revealed. Praying for the families, involved.

    I also was a Small Arms Marksmanship Instructor and Combat Veteran myself. Taking of a life is not a easy thing to live with and yes it stays with you forever. If that individual had broken into my home it would be a decision I would have to make in a split second to protect my family, I assure I can make it without hesitation.

    I think ppl don’t need to come to assumptions unless they know all the facts you have no idea what was actually going on in his life the truth will come out so in meantime y don’t ppl pray for him an family

    As a former Small Arms Marksmanship Instructor and Combat Veteran I am always amused by the “would have been his last burglary” comments. Ask anyone who has been there, done that and they will tell you it’s not as easy as some keyboard cowboys think. People who train for these very type events on a regular basis often choke in these type situations so just be careful for what you wish for. Not to mention, living with taking of another persons life can stay with you a long time. Ask me how I know…

    @ Jakob

    If Stoney is such a good guy – harmless and all that wonderful stuff — WHY was he trying to bust into these people’s HOME??????
    Wondering if his name is also descriptive of his physical and mental state?

    Unfortunately, this will likely not be a life changing turn-around for this guy.
    Yep, it could have turned out much differently for Old Stoney if he had chosen another HOME to burglarize.

    Praying the family of the HOME has peaceful times from here on and that Stoney manages to wake up.

    I find this outrageous! I don’t know the details. Hope everything works out in the end. His kids and family need things to work out.

    I’m sure the alleged burglary was to supplement his existing income.

    Yea now I want all you bleeding hearts tell me what a wonderful outstanding citizen he is and how wrong I am for defending my family.

  11. fisherman on August 22nd, 2017 9:34 am

    If this were my home it would have been his last burglary as I would have taken care of him.

  12. Jakob on August 22nd, 2017 9:31 am

    Did he get inside though? No… I know him and he isn’t a murderer. He would’ve got scared and run away when he saw the owners.

  13. chris on August 22nd, 2017 9:14 am

    What if he got in and it turned into self defense/justifiable homicide?

  14. Just curious on August 22nd, 2017 7:11 am

    Why only 10000 bond just so he can get out n go do it again what if he got in couldve been another double murder.
