If you had been at work you'd still be alive . . .

A generous and thoughtful comment to a news brief on about a murder this morning, at 11:30 a.m., in New Orleans East:

Why are you even available to get shot at 11:30am? Perhaps if you sought gainful employment you would be working at this time of day instead of getting shot at. #justsayin
Here was the story:

One confirmed dead in eastern New Orleans double shooting

Someone was shot and killed and another person was shot and injured this morning in eastern New Orleans, police said.
The shooting happened about 11:30 a.m. in the 7400 block of Woodbine Street, police said.
No other details were immediately available.
Stay with for information as it becomes available.

Turns out that the shootings happened at 11:30 p.m., as was reported in a more complete story a couple of hours later, and that two men were shot, one fatally, while allegedly burglarizing the home of the person that shot them. There are no less than ten comments to that story celebrating the death of the one man and bemoaning the fact that the other lived. Here are a few examples:

This is really a shame.... that the other burglar wasn't killed too.

The resident needs additional training. A more skilled shooter would not have let a witness survive to possibly sue the victim.

Yep, It's a shame the homeowner did not kill them both sorry to say, this could possibly come back on him.
I was working in Lake Charles quite a few years ago and a man was woken in the middle of the night to find his work truck (electrician ) was being robbed, he shot both outside his home and went scott free no questions asked due to this was his lively hood and he was protecting it....GOOD DEAL !!!
Come into my home and you will not make it out to come back on me...................................
This one combines the celebration of death with a healthy dose of racist innuendo:

Nice shooting there homeowner, lettum come back for more of the same. About time the tables get turned, time Leroy asks for a bro to go with him to burglarize another homeowner, his crack pards might have second thoughts......hhhmmmm $5 crack for a 9mm bullet, do the math.
