    Would have been a right ending if both the bad guys were at room temperature.

    Well, we can't always have EVERYTHING we want....:tooth:

    It didn't take long on the news site's Facebook page for people that knew the burglar to say, "He was a GREAT guy." I beg to differ.....

    Bet by now, someone's said, "he had had some troubles, but was turning his life around"

    Ummmm, NO!!!! he wasn't.:nono:

    He did stupid stuff, and won a stupid prize (see sig line below)

    Yeah, pretty much. Most comments are similar to what most people on here would say, but there's the occasional bleeding heart that wants to say it wasn't his fault. As it turns out, the homeowner was elderly and disabled, and the bad guy used 2 crowbars to pry his back door open. It could've ended really badly for the homeowner if he hadn't been armed.
    The comment I left was basically identical to your signature: "Play stupid games, win stupid prizes."
