    It wasn't strong arm robbery. They were there to steal property. Maybe he intned to use them as screwdrivers, or to cut wires?

    Do you actually believe this crap, or are you trolling?

    It's irrelevant unless you can show that it was reasonable to assume the guys camping out with their guns knew they were armed.
    Also, that would be weighed with their comments to a police offer prior to this that they would shoot the trespassers the next time (no metion of "if they are armed")

    Come one guys, they are paying the price for being kill-happy. I'm not gonna take care of that orphaned kid just beacuse you wanted to kill a human for sport. You're gonna have to put a bullet in the kid or take care of them.

    Are you saying the guys that shot knew this prior to shooting?

    I believe that their goal was to go undetected. They didn't set out to attack anyone.

    If YOU break into MY property, the burden of proof is on YOU to demonstrate to ME that you are not armed.

    Seriously, if I catch you in my home trying to lift my laptop or TV, I'm gonna plug you between the eyes. I'm not going to assume a damn thing, or wait for you to convince me that you're only there to detach me from my earthly possessions peacefully.

    As would I. But if you run away, or run into a closet, I'm not going to hunt you down like a dog.

    So if they were put into a confrontational mode by people not wanting to be robbed, they could stab the owners and fall back under the guise of "well, I wouldn't have stabbed him if he just let me steal his car".

    Wow, I'd love to live in your world.

    Umm, no, I didn't exactly say that. But if they were confronted by someone, and ran away, and never pulled out a knife, I think it would be reasonable to say that they didn't intend to use a knife in anger.
