Alabama man kills home invader: 'I hate that boy dead, but I don't hate I shot him'

For 21 years, John Croft lived in his Alabama home virtually problem-free until last summer.

“I’ve been a prisoner in my house,” he said.

Croft, who is 79, says the burglaries began last June. Since then, he says his Center Point house has been broken into 13 times.

The most recent case came around 1:15 Wednesday morning.

“When I heard the noise, that's when they opened the window from the basement coming to the level where the bedrooms are,” he recalled.

Jefferson County deputies say there were two men inside. Another, driving the getaway car, waited outside.

If we believe what we see on TV,enough evidence is eventually left at crime scenes to identify the perp or perps.That being said,the identity of said perps should have been established before his home was burglarized 13 times.It sounds as though home owners are being encouraged to take matters into their own hands.

Liberals don't want you to protect your property they feel you don't own it anyway and if you think I'm wrong try to develop a piece of land.

Sir you have no reason to regret or feel bad. This is on the deceased and other turds. They are the cause of the death, not you. Sorry you have to live with their misdeeds. Thanks for doing a good job, enjoy life.

Would-be home invaders, beware. We have weapons and won't be afraid to use them.
