Sick about the home invasion

Are you as upset as I am about this poor man who lost his two daughters and wife in a home invastion? The Pettit home invastion makes me so sad and I hate that I have to shelter and protect my kids from evil people. Is there a boogie man or monster? Yes, they come in human form unfortunately. Soooo sad!

  • I feel so bad for this family. The poor husband now has to pick up the pieces without his wife and precious DD. How can people do stuff like this is beyond me. I am glad they got them and they do look evil as hell.

     I feel bad for this poster who also got robbed. You feel so violated and I'm sure they got things that meant a lot to you.It looks like we all need a security system and protection from so many these days.....hugs

  • Silverelf-Yes, they found the people that did it. They are currently going through the trial.

    Carol2m2- I have heard that the very best security system is a dog. When people rob a house with a security system they know how much time they have to get in and get out before the police come. Where as a dog... they don't know what kind of dog is it, or what it's going to do. I'm sorry you got robbed, that is VERY scary.

  • Terrible tragedy.
    My husband and I do not keep guns in the house because of our children, but I hear stories like this and it makes me seriously consider getting one. If someone broke into my house, I would have no problem shooting their ass off, for real.
