Will his 23 children be suing the homeowner?

When windows are outlawed, only outlaws will have windows.

They identified the man as 73-year-old Duwayne Masure, of Sutton.

Getting a bit old for that sort of thing?

Darn what a horrible way for a 73-year old to die.

...and the home-builder and the glass manufacturer. If that window has ever been replaced, they’ll tack on the local hardware store.

I knew there had to be a cliché in here somewhere.

But come on, 73? Dementia, or he just needed a hobby?

If the 73 yr old is a thief then he got the death he deserved. My only problem is he probably left a mess that someone else will have to clean up.

It is a good thing (!) this didn't happen in Delaware.

Otherwise the busybody is going to expand their ‘lethal weapon’ list to include windows in everybody’s homes.

And where will we be?

It’s Vermont. Homeowner’s in trouble for failing to install safety glass in his home. Life in prison.

The homeowner will say it’s not his fault, but the jury may see right through that defense.

It's not clear that will happen, but if I were on the jury, I'd walk over broken glass to clear the homeowner of any transparent negligence.

I'd throw the case out the window if I were the judge and rule it had no grout or frame to stand on.

There could be some ADA issues here too. Were there handrails? Was there a ramp? Lawyers will be licking their chops. Calling John Edwards.

Had an office broken into once. The idiot broke through a window and climbed in. He then climbed back through when he left, cutting himself and leaving blood on the OUTSIDE wall. He didn’t notice the sliding glass door two feet from the window. All he had to do was unlock it and walk out. He got away with a typewriter.

He’ll get prosecuted for a hate crime and called a racist for having ‘clear’ glass, instead of tinted.

If you're going to break in through a window, get a long pipe or steel rod and run it around the edge of the frame, to clear away all the glass before you go through.

Good thing people like this don’t know how to stop or at least reduce arterial bleeding.

However, I imagine alcohol might be involved. Just a hunch.
