  1. bees should get him says:

    This is very tragic news that a person of that age is confronted by a person who wants to take advantage of them. My thoughts and prayers are with him at this time.

    May the scum that did such a thing have a thousand bees sting him in the crotch…

    I think once the culprits are caught, their first form of punishment should be that they are taken up to this gentleman’s home and allow him to beat them about the legs and arms. Then take them to the Police Station.

    I can’t imagine how terrifying this was for an elderly man, being disturbed at that hour and attacked, in his own home! How dare they do this. No good wasters too lazy to earn money so they would rather steal it.

    Don’t anyone dare comment about people being ” desperate” these days because these low lives are after the latest iphone or drug money, not food to survive. Is there anything we can do for this poor man? Raise some funds for him?

  4. Praying the gentleman makes a full recovery.

    If scum bags are caught they need to be tied to a post and let the senior get in the first lot of LICKS. Then his relatives and friends and public can get in a LICK or two. I don’t know who the victim is but It make me feel like I want to hunt them down and beat the breath out of them. So disgusted with low lifes.

    I hope the victim gets better soon.

    Looking forward to forensic evidence identify the criminals. Enjoy your freedom because your going to be caught. Aggravated burglary, you can expect a fitting custodial sentence.

    Thanks to OBAMA cut backs, police are now stretched. Especially around those hours.

      If the money was there, there would be no cut backs. Ask yourself where the money went. Hello PLP.

    Mindless d!@ks… they can only prey on the old and helpless…
    And the police respond.. they can’t be everywhere as a crime happens…

    Very, very sad and frightening. It leads folks to arm them-selves in their own homes and to have dogs. Who are these people who would attack folks in their own homes. If you break in some-one,s home and realise the person is at home would you not make as quick escape as possible. I recall a few years ago were a senior was murdered after some-one had broken into her home. Perhaps, the Crime Prevention Unit can come to TV and demonstrate ways of making one,s home more secure. Granted the most determined thief will gain entry. I hope the person makes a full recovery and the culprits pay a heavy price, followed by at least 5 years probation upon their relea se.

      That is why I have dogs! People won’t enter my yard! While my neighbors keep getting robbed.

  10. some beach says:

    Now let’s see.. Do we have assets that will let us know who did this?

    I say utilise an outside contractor and quell this!

    As it was within a residence!

    No courts necessary depending on the contractor…

    There are different punishments for different crimes!
