Update: Property owner exonerated by Grand Jury today, July 17, will report fully in the morning.
When we reported a few days ago about the killing of a Bosnian refugee in Kentucky, the community was planning a vigil for the boy accused of breaking and entering someone’s home. Here is a report of the vigil where friends of the teen walked to the home where he was killed.
About 60 people took part in a vigil Thursday and walked from the home of Eros Berisaj to the house where he was shot. The group started their walk at 5:11 p.m. – the time the shooting was reported to police a week earlier.
The mourners started out at Berisaj’s home at 134 Whispering Hills Blvd. Each of the participants was given a flower. Many wore T-shirts with pictures of Eros surrounding the words “never forget” and others carried posters with picture collages of the teen.
Then further down in the story we learn this.
The shooting was reported at 5:11 p.m. April 3 by homeowner Jeff McGuire, who said he had just shot someone who had broken into his house, according to the Bowling Green Police Department.
McGuire and his attorney, J.B. Hines, have declined to comment.
No charges have been filed and the case remains under investigation. According to police, Eros Berisaj was inside the house at the time he was shot and fell onto the back patio.
Police said they are also investigating if the alleged attempted burglary was related to others that have occurred in that neighborhood.
What is wrong with this picture? When did we come to the point where the sympathy is all on the side of the alleged lawbreaker?
