    To bad the home owner didn’t just shoot all of them dead once they entered the house . That’s why people need to protect themselves, loved ones and property with firearms. That’s what i would have done i do believe. I’m Mike Hard and i approve of lock and loaded

    Way yo go Mr. Coffey! You’ve gone from terrorising harvesters village to the big house! Glad to see you are possibly facing some well deserved jail time.

    Wow, hope their families don’t plan on seeing them anytime soon! Lock them up where these sorry fellas belong. Deserve to be shot at when entering someone’s property, steal your money, car and your girl. Nowhere is safe anymore!

    Way too many “convicted felons” freely roaming around with guns. These home invasions are becoming routine in our.area. Might be time to drastically increase the penalty for felons with weapons. No probation, parole, etc.

    Take care of.yourselves out.there neighbors. All these drugs have just made.people crazier with each and every day.

    I’ve been living here about a year now and it seems North Escambia beats PNJ and WEAR to the big stories. I applaud North Escambia for a job well done. I’m in no way bashing the other two, just noticed it being new here from a much larger city. Has North Escambia considered a TV program? I would gladly donate /subscribe.

    When gun grabbers talk about how no one needs a semi-automatic for home defense this is exactly the reason.

    What were they thinking? Kidnapping, assault, theft, a felon with a fire arm. The criminal mind has to be a strange place.

    Put these three where they will never the light of day again. To come into any person’s home uninvited should be punishable by death. Know the rule and don’t break them!
