Did you read some of the comments on the hawaiinewsnow site? The same usual "oh he was such a good kid. He loved babies, planted trees, raised puppies, and cared for the elderly" story
. Any good deeds a man performs through the course of his life is severely mitigated in the face of willfully using violence to take other people's hard-earned property. Violence
. I don't care if he's Ghandi.
Humans throughout their existence have capably used their attached fists and their body to kill or seriously hurt others with no training whatsoever. Did he deserve to die for the property he stole? I have to say no he didn't deserve to die for the stolen item(s) in question; but when you've already crossed the threshold of doing violence unto the innocent
, and force another to defend himself from you, then I think you deserve everything the victim feels he needs to do to get you to stop, up to and including death.
I'm genuinely sad for the family's loss - I can't imagine what it would be like to lose your son, brother, cousin, father, etc in such a traumatic way; but for society's sake, I hope the family stops breeding or takes a real hard look at how they're raising their brood and fixes it.
