http://concealednati...hree-intruders/. I'm hoping someone here on the Forum knows a bit more about this incident. While I understand that merely the statement that the people he shot were home invaders is not enough to end the matter, it is a concern when it appears that someone is being arrested merely for defending his own life and home.

Apparently he was released but the investigation continues. http://chicago.cbslo...d-from-custody/

Old story
They "intruders" may have been there with him all day
Some time lapsed before calling police iirc
There were other issues and witnesses also
See above post and follow the articles in that thread

Conflicting reports at best

Yep, conflicting reports, his story keeps changing.

I might as well jump on the bandwagon and get IN too.

What possible purpose is there with the post that says "ibtl" or similar non-thoughts?

It's the thought that counts........

But it's like the narrowing of the highway kinda, there is normally already a thread about the same subject.
With "duo" threads the responses and such get strewn about here AND there.
The bloat of these kinds of threads eat up disk space, time reading, and knock out other threads with what peeps gave already read before, sometimes being only three or four threads apart in the same header thread!

Hence the "IBTL" nonsense as it is.
Kind of a placard or sign if you will to attract the admins/mods about "duo" threads.
Then they close a "dip" and the discussion goes on in the original thread. A merging of thoughts and opinions!

Number one, It helps the moderators by "flagging" a duplicate thread, allowing them to close it to avoid confusion.

Number two, it teaches people to use the search function before posting a new topic, to avoid duplicates.

Number three, It's fun.

A statement like "Duplicate thread", and a link to the original thread on the same subject, would be much more helpful. "IBTL", or for that matter, "I agree" or "+" seems like a waste of time for the writer, and certainly for the reader who is following the thread.

Post # 2 has the link to original thread. "IBTL" usually follows after that.
