What pisses me off about the article, is that is says the kid was "mistaken for an intruder"
He WAS an intruder.
Homeowners alarm goes off, see's someone entering his home that he doesn't recognize, and he shoots them to protect himself, and his family. It doesn't matter that the intruder was a 16 year old, or if it was a 30 year old. The fact is, he broke the law, and put someone in fear for their life, and they acted. It's a sorry situation for all involved, but I believe the homeowner acted properly.
