    Anybody with a house like that deserves to have those that are less fortunate break in and take what they want. Shame on people for having such luxury while those that are poor merely because of their refusal to work for pittance must go without. </sarcasm>

      Wow. That was the dumbest comment I've ever read! Are you honestly suggesting that a person who has more possessions than you deserves to be robbed and subjected to violence? I sincerely hope you are never is a situation where a gun is pointed at you and you have to fear for your life. Nobody should have to experience that.

    I know the family and housekeeper that live in that house. The comment left by Darren shows what type of person he is, jealous, I feel sorry for him. The couple that live here have what they do because of their hard work! I am thankful she(H) is alright and not hurt. I hope the people that did this are caught and held accountable for their actions and poor choices.
