    Your ignorance is mind numbing. What makes you think that his parents didn’t teach him to respect others property ? He was an adult that made a very poor choice that cost him his life. His family will never be the same. Stealing is wrong, but causing his family additional pain by spewing your opinions is very painful to the innocent family members who have been left behind to pick up the pieces. They don’t deserve that and maybe that karma you all talk so freely about will bite those of who are causing this family additional pain

    So sorry to hear it was your btother. Sometimes someone has NO other alternatives when you children are hungry or your baby needs diapers. But there is always other things you can do if that is the situation. Stealing is not the answer!! No matter what your problem is, there is always agencies that will and can help. It was stupid of him to try to steal and he paid the ultimate price. It is sad to think that he thought he could get away with trying to steal, it only leads to more problem for his family. Again I am so sorry that this burden has fallen on your shoulders and may he RIP and be forgiven for his actions because God loves you no matter who or what you ate and will forgive him because God needed a special angel for someone and that’s why He called him Home

    For those who feel sorry, what about all the people who are actually hurt by acts like this? All across the world, copper thieves are committing what some people think are “harmless” acts of theft against heartless corporate entities, but when a utility suffers a major outage because of them and someone dies because their ventilator lost power, or they froze to death, or got heat stroke because they could not get cool, nobody thinks of THAT as a murder. I do. I am the “brother” of those victims too. I have no sympathy for a mindless criminal.

    Sorry. Illegal or not… This was a human being. We don’t know what exactly happened or why he was in such a place in his life. Karma is just a BS answer for those people that just have nothing better to say. RIP whoever this was. And I wish his family well.

    You hypocritical people think you have all the right answers huh. With your lables for a person that you don’t even know, right. Probably some drug addict, or a person living off the non-working government. You’re right KARMA is a b****,and I hope it come back around to all of you with all your negative and nasty comments. That man was my Brother

      It is a pity your parents did not raise him to respect other people’s property. Any death is a loss to all of us, but it is difficult to feel sorry for the family of someone who was killed stealing what wasn’t theirs to possess.

    Let’s feel sorry for someone that got killed committing a crime. Yeah right. Even if it was someone I knew I would have no sympathy. This person was more than likely stealing to feed a drug addiction and not feed a family or pay bills. There are plenty of programs available to help you get a job, get free food or kick an addiction. I’ll stop throwing stones in my glass house when you all crawl out from under the rock you live under.

    You would feel that way if it was a parent or sibling, Anna. Really, just think before opening your mouth. It wasn’t right what he did but you also don’t know the whole story just like when people say “serves them right for being a drug addict” or whatever. Educate yourself before spewing your hatred on the internet.
