My best wishes for a speedy recovery to the Home Owner

An many thanks for helping for eliminating a deadly community problem.

Now the question becomes,
How many little home invaders did the DEAD guy produce, that will have to be contended with in the future?

A great Christmas news story...

I'm so sorry to hear about the homeowner being shot. However, it's always a great day when another thug gets killed.

It's a shame a 78 year old man got shot defending his home and wife from a would be thug. The old should not have to live in fear of animals trying to break into their homes. Glad he gave this perp a dirt nap and saved the taxpayers the cost of incarceration.

After 7 years in Anderson

After 7 years in Anderson County, I can tell you that the Piedmont area is one rough place. Meth, meth, and more meth. Ill bet the dead perp isn't a first time robber. But hes a last time robber for sure.

Anyone "invading" my house

Anyone "invading" my house will be shot at least twice by me and my husband. Then we will argue who killed him first.

The man who was shot was

The man who was shot was Rahim Shakur, and he had just gotten out of the Federal Penitentiary in Atlanta in April. And what this story doesn't say is that he had grabbed the female homeowner outside the home and held her at gunpoint and took her into the house, the woman called for her husband, who then shot that piece of worthless trash. Justice was served.

He doesn't LOOK like a camel jockey.

Just wondering if his parents gave him that name or did he change his birth name as part of some ritual to become more like someone or something he admired.

Guess we'll never know now.
