The grandfather of one of the thugs blames the victim for shooting them after they broke into his home and threatened him.
“They knew they could be punished for it but they did not deserve to die," said Schumacher...“Brass knuckles against an AR-15, come on, who was afraid for their life,"'Deserve's got nothin' to do w/ it' as the saying goes. His grandson made a monumentally stupid decision, a series of them in fact, not thinking he would have to face consequences except maybe a slap on the wrist from some judge.
He was wrong.
And I've got no sympathy.
