WEEK/WHOI website used the word ‘victim’ to describe dead home invader

Bah!

The homeowner then discovered the front window was broken out, and the suspect attempting to get in. He then reportedly struck the suspect with a crutch.

Police later arrived and found the 37-year-old male suspect laying about 15 feet in front of the home. He was conscious, but authorities say they could not understand him.

According to the Peoria County Coroner, the suspect suffered cardiac arrest on the way to the hospital.

He was pronounced dead at 11:13 p.m. at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center.

The name of the victim is being withheld until the next of kin is notified.

If you own or rent a home, and someone tries to break in through a window while you are sleeping, you have the right and duty to assume that said home invader will rape and murder the occupants. The last word I would use forf any potential rapist/murderer is “victim.”

In a deent and law-abiding society, the home-invaders head would be cut off and displayed in a pike in the victim’s front yard.

The only good home invader is a dead home invader.

I say sue the man’s estate for the cost of replacing the window.

  1. So someone who unsuccessfully attempts to break into my home & doesn’t hurt anyone or steal anything should be beheaded? You make no sense.

    1. whatajoke: You certainly are confused. Beheading is a sentence given out in Europe a couple of centuries ago (and still practices in some mostly Arab countries). In this case, the victim (the homeowner) whacked a caught-in-the act perpetrator who was actively trying to break into his house. There is virtually NO legal scholar anywhere who suggests that legal force is not allowed in this case.

      Thanks for the input.

  2. I’m not at all confused. Here’s what you wrote (corrected for your spelling of “deent”: “In a decent and law-abiding society, the home-invaders head would be cut off and displayed in a pike in the victim’s front yard.

    And if you want to emulate in the US what happens in Arab societies, why don’t you move there. I prefer our form of criminal justice — which doesn’t include beheading.

Feel free to comment!
