According to the article,this man and his friend went to rob someone at their residence in Texas and during the robbery,he was sho dead and his accomplice fled and you think this useless man deserve sympathy?>Well think about this.This guy and his pathner in crime could have killed the occupant or occupants in the house,but through bad luck,the owner or whoever in that house fired and bingo ,one of the robbers is dead.Kudos to the owner of the house for putting a stop to one of these robberies that happen once every ten minutes in the US.This guy left Nigeria for a better life in the US.Is robbing people to make a living a better life?.Texas is one of the states that allow a law abiding citizens to carry a conceal firearm and if you try to rob somebody,you might be praying for your death.He gets what he deserve.It could have been the other way around,but thank god the robber get killed.One more thief the world don't have to worry about.Are the rest of you robbers listening?.One day ,you will rob the wrong person and your head will be blown off clean.Hasa la vista baby.This guy look like a drug addict looking for a hit.The police should now go after his accomplice and bring him or her to justice.We hard working people in US and around the world are tired of robbers trying to take our s**tt for nothing.Don't mess with Texas.I hope the shooter is an NRA member.

One of the reasons why i hate and will always hate the US. You do not kill people cos they are criminals or whatever. There should have a more sophisticated option as one of the well off nations. Though, if the story is true then he was not a great patriot as reported in the article. Reply this thread

Stay wherever the hell you are.Nobody wants you here if you are lawless.You will find out US is the safest country on earth to live if you are a law abiding citizen.But if you come here to be a criminal,the same fate that befell him is waiting for you.Leave your criminal behavior and mind in Naija.Come to the US get a good education and work hard,the sky is the limit.You rob the wrong person,you might get your head blown off clean.Got it?.I think so.
