  1. The man is an asshole. There is no duty to retreat. They invaded his home and he had every right to believe they were going to end his life. Its time to stop supporting criminals and start taking the fight to the criminals who would kill us dead and take our stuff. He had no reason to believe the police would respond in time to save his life (they never do) so the burden is to eliminate the threat whether that takes ten rounds or fifty. Don't stop pulling the trigger until the threat to your life is eliminated. The burden of proof is on the police so f*** them and f*** the horse they rode in on. Police don't stop firing until they empty their third magazine. Is your life less important than theirs. I think not!!!!

  2. Those kids deserved what they got.!!!!!! You break in my house ill make you wish you were never born….or kill ya….Mr Smith should never retreat in his own home ….anyone that disagrees is a democrat..libtard### snowflake…do a crime and die should be the message….fk### those punk thief…

  3. Home invasion should always end in death for perpetrators. If the homeowner does not kill them the state should. No exceptions.

  4. The fucktard saying the homeowner went to far should have to take locks off his home and publish his address. Fuck that piece of shit

  5. What Bullshit is this ? Somebody breaks in your home you defend yourself and get charged for murder. Fuck that and them punks who did it. Rot in hell Bitches

  6. Good, this man needs to rot in prison for the rest of his life. Then he needs to rot in hell in the afterlife

  7. It amazes me and somewhat frightens me how many sociopaths we have in America. Everyone sharing this guy. Why don't you all read the entire details of what this guy did. His actions were far beyond simple self and home defense. If you still agree with what he did after reading all the gory details then you are just a sick fuck you should probably eat a bullet

  8. There’s a difference between shooting someone in defence an executing Someone he executed that girl an btw he was not sorry you can tell how he talks in the video an he didn’t even call the police until a day later

  9. A cop can put multiple shots into you because they thought your cellphone was a gun and walk away scot free but a homeowner can't shoot criminals in the act of committing a crime?
    America needs less law and more justice.

  10. Anyone who feels the need to steal or do anything like that at all is a waste of space and the world is a better place without them.

  11. Well how was he suppose to know if the teens were armed at the time when they broke in, he was scared for his life and had to do what he had to do

  12. What the HELL is this guy talking about "WILD WILD WEST" and all that? lol… YOU BREAK MY WINDOWS and/or any of my property 2 in the morning, I will shoot first and ask question later. When someone is brave enough to break your door and/or window down to steal what you have inside, they wouldn't flinch for a second about hurting the people inside and certainly burglars are not there to befriend the homeowner and watch football game on tv while drinking homeowner's beer… LMAO… What this guy did was the right thing to do. The people who took him to court is all a JOKE… lol…

  13. >castle doctrine
    >duty to retreat

    PICK ONE FAGGOT, FAR AS I KNOW CASTLE DOCTRINE DOES NOT MEAN DUTY TO RETREAT.

  14. The homeowner has no idea how many people are breaking into his home. Two people are immediately present, but that doesn't mean there aren't more coming behind them.

  15. my house is my safe place and if you break and enter why the fuck should I not assume you intend to take it any further than that? Should I wait for you to get the drop on me and harm me do defend myself? Because smashing my window in clearly indicates you had no respect for my life or my property to begin with and is a brazen act of pure violence to begin with! This is complete bullshit and that man should be commended, not committed.

  16. Retreat to fucking where? He was already at his last stand…duty of retreat states “required to retreat to a safe place” so if you’re already in the safe place, and it is infringed upon, are you supposed to inter dimensionally travel through a wormhole to liberal land and hide there like a pussy while someone steals every valuable thing you’ve worked for? Yeah I didn’t think so. Duty of retreat does not apply to home invasions.

  17. If the teenagers weren't armed, how did they break the window out? Did they use a feather or maybe their empty hand? If they used a rock or stick, wouldn't that be considered a weapon? If this is the way Minnesota treats their honest citizens, then they should all sell out and move to Arkansas. We'll treat you better.

  18. When someone is breaking into your house, you are under immediate threat you idiot. The homeowner is my hero. Great job.

  19. Break into my house leave in a body bag! Case closed🔫✌🏻️My neighbor has a no trespassing sign ….have firearms and wood chipper! Enough said!

  20. They wouldn't be breaking into anyone's house ever again.. Thanks the old fella.. That's the way to handle Home Invasion there should be no next invasion.. 👍👍

  21. THESE LAWS THAT IN A ROUNDABOUT WAY PROTECT THE CRIMINAL, IS A BUNCH OF BULLSHIT. "YOU PLAY YOU PAY", I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW ANY JURY COULD CONVICT THIS MAN, EVEN IF IT IS YOU RUN FIRST. WITH THAT LAW YOU MIGHT AS WELL JUST SET ALL OF YOUR VALUABLES OUT IN THE YARD FOR THEM TO TAKE WITHOUT ANY CONFRONTATION. EVEN IF A MAN GETS DRUNK AND MISTAKENLY BREAKS IN YOUR HOUSE THINKING IT WAS HIS. 1ST OFF SHOULDN'T GET SO DRUNK THAT YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE, 2ND YOU HAD TO BREAK IN, I DON'T CARE SOMEONE TOOK YOUR KEYS SO YOU WOULDN'T DRIVE THAT'S WHY YOU DIDN'T HAVE YOUR KEYS. THIS REVERTS BACK TO THE 1ST ONE. AND OF COURSE, THEY'RE GOING TO SAY EVEN A COP HAS TO THINK ABOUT AND TRY TO DE-ESCALATE THE SITUATION, 99% OF THE TIME ITS NOT THE OFFICERS PROPERTY OR FAMILY HE IS PROTECTING. BUT IF IT WAS YOU CAN BET YOUR ASS, A COP WAKES UP AND SOMEONE IS IN HIS HOUSE, THAT PERSON 10 OUT OF 10 TIMES WILL BE SHOT WITH NO INVESTIGATION OR PROSECUTION OF THE OFFICER, RUN 1ST LAW OR NOT.

  22. Is this real? You come in my home I kill you. What's to fare? Librales are out of control. Yeah it sucks to kill someone. Of course he is sorry. Cops kill people all the time. Don't break into peoples home and you won't get killed plain simple. So you Fucken Librals are for the bad guys. But you hide behind your walled home with armed sucerity.

  23. He has not only a "right" but also a "responsibility" to the community and to society at large, to stop this continuing reign of terror.

  24. Smash into my home, and I will do everything in my power to protect my family. This is one of the hazards of doing home invasions. You could get hurt or killed.

  25. He has a duty to retreat in his home, This asshole attorney has some serious problems, If some stranger kicks my door in, that''s the last thing he's going to remember.

  26. Haha dumb ass kids don't break in you won't die I don't care who they are and when they try to run ima pull them back inside and lock the door don't care if you have a weapon don't care if your sick hungry. You dont know what they are going to do and even a serial killer will beg for there life and say there sorry but as soon as you let your guard down murder you before the cops get there no I'm good I'll make sure and take there life or rope them up to the back of the truck till cops get there guy did the right thing saw a similar incident were guy let home invader to run off cause he didnt want to shoot the guy in the back the next day same criminal rapped and murderd a family guy should have shot him it would have saved innocent lives Think the cops that arrested him should all be in jail

  27. I think the defense attorney needs to walk through the same scenario, two teenagers that arent Osama Ben laden have killed many many people, what a douche bag response…

  28. Armed or not, I was brought up as … If you are purposely doing something you should not be doing it is Your own fault, "Then That's What You Get" …. If you are purposely some where you should not be or do not belong what ever happens to you "Then That's What You get" …. This is the way my parents taught me and I have watched this sort of thing play out in real life … I feel for the man protecting his own.

  29. "..two key points to this doctrine…no. 1…there's no evidence that either of these teenagers were armed. no. 2, Mr. Smith has a duty to retreat…" What a fk'ing idiotic statement. What, homeowners now must ask if intruders are teenagers and/or armed before he defends himself? He has to go hide in the closet while they break in? BS to both stupid points. I would not want that moron representing me in any court.

  30. Your in my home and i don't know you and no one in my fam invited you in. Im going to send you to what ever God you pray to.

  31. Too far? You break in someone’s house but you can’t defend your house… retreat in your home? WTF, where to the garage? Or bathroom….. this is crazy!

  32. Liberal retards. Duty to what? Is he high? Why would he retreat in his house? and retreat to where? in his toilet bowl?
    Fuck her, so what if she is a girl, and stop calling her lady, lady my ass, what about the guy? was he an honourable gentleman by libtard standard? a fucking criminal is a criminal irrespective of their gender. She was simply lying, looking for her boyfriend? you have to be fucking stupid to believe that shit, she was smart but not that smart i guess.
    Intruders are intruders no matter how you put it.

  33. Well, at least those 2 entitled criminals won't be able to terrorize anyone else's home,, I'm sure your neighbors thank U!!

  34. No dought the poor old bloke is living in fear because of these little cunts.They won't do it again that's for sure.

  35. This pussy defending the burglars needs someone to pop some birdshot in his ass too. You dont have any duty to do anything but defend yourself. Fuck these pussy ass liberals that think otherwise

  36. This is a great example of the level of STUPIDITY that now runs rampant in America. The criminals break into the victims home and the MAN DEFENDS HIMSELF WITH A GUN. The ASS HOLES that now are called 'prosecutors' will take this victim and VICTIMIZE HIM AGAIN with huge LAWYER FEES and possible JAIL TIME, because the VICTIM filled the young BASTARDS full of holes that will make it impossible for those little bastards to victimize anyone else and will be a great example for other little bastards that think the life of a criminal is 'FUN'.
    Instead of arresting the little BASTARDS parents, and having them be RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL that happened during that "BREAK-IN CRIME, the 'asshole prosecutor' will make life miserable for the HOMEOWNER that did NOTHING WRONG, protecting himself from the LITTLE BASTARDS that made the CHOICE of tying to make someone THEIR VICTIM, but instead the tables were TURNED and the little bastards are now where they belong, six feet under the surface of the EARTH.
    I am going to take this opportunity to point out that there are BIG BASTARDS, that broke the LAW when they INVADED someone else's Land, claiming that their 'god' the JEW invented gave that land only to the JEW, and now OUR assholes, that call themselves 'american politicians' are making those VICTIMS of the JEW, the VICTIMS of the JEWmerican-israel AXIS OF INSANITY and call the VICTIMS, the Palestinians the TERRORISTS, yet it was the wacky fucked up JEW that INVADED the PALESTINIAN LAND, using the excuse that the JEW is 'god's' chosen SCUMBAGS, to KILL those that the JEW claims are 'guilty' of LIVING on the land that the INSANE CLOWN the JEW invented, gave that land only to the parasitic, insane JEW, and their newest JACKASS of the JEW, dONALD dUCK, calls 'god'. Joe Magnets

  37. IF THE POLICE SHOWS UP DURING A HOME INVASION AND THE ASSAILANT HAS A WEAPON, THE POLICE WON'T HESITATE TO USE DEADLY FORCE…IF THEY GET THERE QUICK ENOUGH. THE COPS WOULD BE DEEMED HEROS BUT THIS GUY WAS DEEMED A MURDERER. WOW! MIND BLOWING SHIT.

  38. I can't believe how many scumbags are defending the criminals you are what's wrong with this country.. and I bet you are all liberals.. because liberals love criminals

  39. Doesn't matter what a criminal says to you during their assault–you can't believe anything they're saying when it could be a deception to trick you into letting your guard down. And hey, whattya know, most people don't just instantly die upon taking the first round.

  40. Wild West. OK Corral. Osama. When you resort to that kind of obfuscational hysterics, it's no surprise when you lie about the duty to retreat (within the home).

  41. 😇 OPINION: 1st° MURDER 😇
    After reading the case details, Mr Smith set a trap, then proceeded to "lay in wait, and when the teens arrived he shot them each multiple times and wrapped them in tarps. ABSOLUTELY IT WAS PREMEDITATED MURDER.

  42. "Bullshit!" My home – Windows and doors locked. 6 foot fence with padlock on it. ( Minding my own business knowing that I am secure and safe! ( You took the time to plan a breakin knowing the consequences. 21 yr. Retired Vet.Eliminate life threat period! Thiefs picked the wrong house to breakin! "I'm sorry is not going to get it!" I donot know a trained soldier who squeezes off one round! ( Usually a 3 round burst) This is a "bullshit law!" ( JUST MY SCENARIO!)

  43. Know this time he like kill the guy he shot the girl and then he let her suffer and then die before calling 911 that's where he screwed up so he wasn't endanger at that point also she also said don't shoot please don't shoot so she had given up and was compliant with him he shot her just to shoot her that's where he screwed up the first one definitely needed to get his head blown off he had a gun

  44. He defends himself from spineless losers who breaks into his house the prosecutor is full of crap for charging him the teen's brought this on themselves

  45. Not guilty this self defense the prosecutor and state are blithering idiots for charging him with murder

  46. If they hadn't have broken in they would not have gotten shot. Sorry it came to that point but they made a decision and those were the consequences of their decision.

  47. Some girl came inside my house unwelcomed to try and beat up my daughter but instead intruder left with black eyes and fractured arm she got from the queen of the house . Intruder tried to sue us for damages but failed and had to pay us for our big flat screen tv that fell and broke during that fight lol

  48. I don'tagree with the outcome of the trail….but here it is… On April 29, 2014, Byron David Smith was found guilty on two counts of first-degree murder with premeditation and on two counts of second-degree murder after three hours of jury deliberations. He was immediately sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.[4] The audio recordings were named by the jurors as the biggest influence on their decision. "That was the most damning piece of evidence in my mind," Wes Hatlestad, one of 12 jurors, said following the trial. "That audio recording of the actual killings and the audio recording of Mr. Smith's interview immediately after his arrest … pretty much convinced me that we were dealing with a deranged individual."with the outcome of the trail….but here it is…

  49. He didn’t shoot them to defend himself. He shot them over and over again and shot execution shots in the head after they were on the ground.

  50. Stupid judicial industry money goofballs
    How about what part of home invasion don't you losers understand?
    Can get yourself killed
    Weak lazy lawyers and judges need to be a victim of home invasion

  51. The people commenting here don't know the whole story.
    This homeowner was a deranged individual. He totally set these kids up. Check out what really happened.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6RGXGgTr6g

  52. The deaths were not immediately reported to police. Smith waited until the next day to notify police of the shootings, claiming he didn't want to bother the police on Thanksgiving.[8][14] Morrison County Sheriff Michel Wetzel has acknowledged that Brady and Kifer were there to burglarize Smith's residence.[6] Brady's sister claimed Brady stole drugs from her home on August 28, a case that was still under investigation at the time of Brady's killing.[7] Evidence recovered from the car driven by Brady was linked to a burglary of the residence of a retired teacher the night before he and Kifer were killed by Smith.[15]

    Smith's statements to police describe delivering killing shots to the heads of both victims after he had shot them on the stairs and they had fallen, wounded, to the basement floor.[16][17] In his statement, Smith said that Kifer had let out a short laugh after she fell down the stairs, saying "If you're trying to shoot somebody and they laugh at you, you go again." The audiotape did not record Kifer laughing; instead she cries "Oh God!" in fear. In police interviews Smith acknowledged "firing more shots than I needed to" and that he fired "a good clean finishing shot" into Kifer's head.[5]

  53. I wonder how this case turned out .I would have let the man walk ,make parents of those Invaders pay for damages to the mans home.

  54. The story should be crime is so bad in this mans area that you have to arm yourself just to walk around your home. All It's sad that people died. It's sad that this man has be armed when in his own home. That DA was not in this mans house when this happened. The only good that came of this is that the people of his neighborhood are now safer in their own homes.
