Our post about an incident in which a man moving into an Aurora condo shot three juveniles who allegedly tried to rob him, killing one of them. got a lot of reaction from readers.

Most of them supported the actions of the mover.

Likewise, few expressed much sympathy for the teens who were shot.

Bummer the kid died, but hey, he asked for it by robbing somebody! It sounds like the homeowner was standing his ground and defending himself. I see no problem there.

Hopefully this will be a wake-up call to the two surviving delinquents and they can make some changes in their lives before they end up in cold storage like their buddy.
