George is right. Properly armed and trained men could have protected their own homes. Not only that, but the thugs might not be so brazen if they knew they could be killed too.

Be Vigilant, home invasions are on the rise. These punks are targeting homeowners, knowing most businesses now have cameras. Get a home security system, try www.freealarm.org for affordability. Be Safe

The mutts know that b-berg and kelly have been deballing the pd since 2002.You must remember that there are over 5,000 less cops on the street,and 55% have less than 4 years experience.You really need to watch out for yourself.You know better locks,outdoor lighting (dusk to dawn,front and back) alarms AND a firearm! If you decide to arm yourself, get training and practice,often!

We need descriptions of these thugs.. what did this girl look like who rang their bell minutes before the attack? Young, old? I'm guessing young and very STUPID! I hope they find these low lives. I want justice for this kid and his family in the worst way. These degenerates are getting too comfortable coming into working class neighborhoods terrorizing hard working people. I hope they get some information from the materials left behind. I will pray that they are all found and punished to the maximum, including the girl. They should all be punished equally!! My deepest condolences to the Antoniello family. May God give them the strength and courage to deal with this horrific tragedy.

60 years of the mental disorder known as liberalism has brought this down on NYC. Without swift justice, and in this case capital punishment, this will continue to be repeated over and over again, especially as the economy worsens. Find the perps and hang them in public, and this will slow down.

It amazes me that the public is not being made aware of the descriptions of these magets. In two newspapers, I read that they were black and no where else. Had this been a white person, it would have been told from the first day on the news. It is what it is and nobody should try to hide or pacify the truth. There was another home invasion three days before that where two black men ambushed the homeowner as he was coming home and shoved him into his house, tied he and his wife up... luckily the man was able to set free and ran out for help. How come that has not become news for those who live outside of the neighborhood? Ironically, this person, too, owns a local business in the area.

The sad reality is the father has cancer and it does not look well.
His son only reacted to defend his father and ended up giving the ultimate sacrifice.

Animals that do this should be publicly executed. Period.
Government should sell tickets on Pay for View and let the Family pull the switch

Actually the problem goes back to The Ultimate self hating Italian, Giuliani! He made sure to go after the Italians and to a lesser extent the Latin Kings to get his name in the paper, once he did that he left Ozone Park, Richmond Hill, Woodhaven, Lindenwood and even Howard Beach to get infested with ghetto trash. Its gotten so bad that you have a "barber shop" less than a block from a high school selling crack til 1 am in plain sight. No crime is good crime but id rather deal with the devil i know then the ones i dont!
