This happened in the 200 block of west 14th Street around 8 AM this morning in Holland. According to the victims, the 2 men entered the home and threatened the victims with a gun and demanded money.

The victims were not able to give money to the suspects. Then one of the suspects then assaulted the male victim.  The suspects then fled the home having taken a large screen television.

When the suspects left the home, the victims were about to get a description of their vehicle.  Which was pulled over on I-196 near South Haven with 4 people in the vehicle, including the 2 suspects.

    Another reason for homeowners to have a weapon. The 20 year old may not have been hurt and just maybe, there would be two less hoodlums around.

    Killing is not the answer. What is this world coming too.. Lets have more resources for people who are having difficulty and think stealing and robbing people is the only way to survive.

    • Home Owner

      Killing is not the intent of self defense.
      Defending your self and family is the goal of self "defense"
      It was the criminal who was aggressive.

      No one..NO ONE wants to be forced to injure another human, but when it comes time to defend the family or yourself from an aggressive criminal, you never know what the criminal really has in mind or how far they are willing to go.

      Home invaders don't care if you and your family are injured, they don't care if you go hungry, they don't care if your children never feel safe again.

      The old couple who was robbed and killed comes to mind.
      The responsibility belongs on the criminal for any injuries they may receive while invading your home.

    ill tell you what this would have happened at my house there would be two less worthless thieves. I will protect my family no matter what.. we do not need more programs to help these people. They need to get jobs. Why would you want to help social parasites with free food and free money free places to live that is just riddiculous

    You are correct in a sense.
    We have programs for the poor, lots of them.
    That really isn't their goal. There goal is to take.

    They had a gun, according to the Holland sentinel, they don't care what happens to you, they really don't.
