A Mostly Happy Ending

  • A gang member shot by a DuPage County homeowner during a bungled, bloody break-in that left two other people seriously wounded was sentenced Wednesday to 14 years in prison.

    Alejandro Roman of Chicago was wounded as he searched for drugs and money in 2009 after breaking into a townhouse near Glen Ellyn with two gang associates, authorities said.

    After Roman was shot through a closed bedroom door by the homeowner, his accomplices opened fire on two other residents they already had tied up in another room of the house, DuPage County prosecutors said.

    A 20-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man were shot in the head during the melee, but both survived.

Would that this were a headline each and every day, crime would plummet to depths as yet unknown.

Only 14 years? This pathetic Mutt should be residing at Burr Oak Cemetery. I am sure we can find a spot for him.

Holy shit... 14 years? For that?

Un-fucking-believable. I'm all for sentencing reform with non-violent and 'technicality' crimes, but a violent, armed home invasion that culminates in two bound victims getting shot in the head, I think that's worth at least 50.

Citizens need guns no question but the government has turned evil and should have limited access to firearms cause they sell machine guns to drug dealers and shit like that.

You guys seem to view the homeowner as some innocent victim. Do any of you seriously think they picked this house at random? C'mon guys get real.

Naw, crime like that don't happen in the suburbs. If it does it's probably because of the city transplants moving out there.

With good behaviour and time considered served, this mutt will be back in Chicago in no time.

How is that "A Mostly Happy Ending?" Two victims were tied up and shot in the head and some mope gets a measley 14 years. Shame on DuPage County. They usually throw the book at the savages thats one of the reasons why that county is a good place to live. That seems more like a Crook County sentencing to me.

One of my old classmates just missed someone breaking into their home by an hour.

They are REALLY pissed they weren't home to catch the mutt. A passerby scared the bad guy off, so there was no entry, only damage to the window on the first floor.

Probably would have cleared 10 burglaries…at least.
