    "ARLINGTON -- Two gunmen who forced their way into a southeast Arlington home Tuesday afternoon “blasted through the back door” with shotguns, tied up a couple and their adult son and took the woman’s jewelry, a 911 audio recording says."

    Wow, that's pretty startling. :eek: Sounds like those robbers were a bit more determined than the average robber.

    Yeah that was pretty brazen. It sounds like they may have been a mistaken target. That family is very fortunate that they weren't murdered but there does seem to be something amiss about this whole thing. It'll be interesting to see if there are any follow-up stories to this.

    Here's another link with video. It's not clear as to whether shots were fired to gain entry like the other story reported. They may have just kicked in the door.

    They were very lucky not to have gotten murdered.Too many people on the streets who will kill you for nothing.

    Here's a follow-up. They caught them after they burglarized another house and then assaulted the homeowner when he got home to see them coming out of his house. I'm glad they caught them before somebody got killed. The two invaders were 16 and 17 years old.

    ...perps 16 and 17!!! Lord, have mercy!

    so now we have this campaign to stop kids from smoking tobacco. billboards, radio, tv, computers, it's all in the schools--don't smoke.

    BUT, a pre-teen can buy a video game which actually gives him "points" for torturing, raping, or beheading people in a video game. and this is ok, 'cuz someone is making huge $$$ on this.

    violence raging at a kid's home or he's out on the streets directly in violence. they are going to learn what they see.

    I could train my dog to be a killer in a few months. yet kids suckled and weaned on a universe of violence in all media forms from diapers to teenage are allowed to buy into "violence solves all problems" mode.

    where are the parents of these MONSTERS?
