Home invasion suspects had long rap sheets

I'm so sick and tired of things like this happen to good people. I'm also sick of our law makers and politicians. I guess it is our fault for electing these whoosies. :BangHead:

You guys becareful out there. Being at home gives you a false sense of security. Always keep your guard up and stay in condition yellow. And if you believe in arming yourself, then have your sidearm with you and practice with it often. Remember, when the SHTF, everything will revert to how you were trained and practice.

Home invasion suspects had long rap sheets. But officials say duo had no history of violent crimes; 3 killed in attack

HARTFORD, Conn. - Two men with long rap sheets were on parole when they broke into a doctor’s home, strangled his wife and killed the couple’s two daughters in a fire they set to cover their tracks, authorities said Tuesday.

Joshua Komisarjevsky, 26, of Cheshire, and Steven Hayes, 44, of Winsted, were arraigned Tuesday on charges of assault, sexual assault, kidnapping, burglary, robbery, arson, larceny and risk of injury to children. Bail was set at $15 million each, which Judge Christina G. Dunnell said was warranted because of the men’s criminal histories.

State officials are re-examining their policies after learning two convicted burglars out on parole are accused of killing three family members during a home invasion and arson.

But Robert Farr, chairman of the Connecticut Board of Pardons and Parole, said the task would be difficult because neither suspect had a history of violent crimes.

“That’s why this is sort of shocking — because it doesn’t fit a normal mode,” Farr said.

The state medical examiner confirmed that Jennifer Hawke-Petit, 48, was strangled and that her daughters, 17-year-old Hayley and 11-year-old Michaela, died of smoke inhalation. The deaths were ruled homicides.

Emotionally devastated
The girls’ father, Dr. William Petit Jr., a prominent endocrinologist, remained hospitalized with head injuries.

“He’s doing OK physically. Emotionally, he is devastated and still worried about others,” said Petit’s pastor, the Rev. Stephen Volpe.

The suspects entered the Petits’ Cheshire home at about 3 a.m. Monday, planning to burglarize it, state police said. When they found the family at home, they beat Dr. Petit, then tied up his wife and daughters, police said.

Employees at a bank called police after one of the suspects forced Hawke-Petit to make a withdrawal around 9:30 a.m., officials said. The men were caught in the family’s car after ramming several police cruisers as they fled the burning home, authorities said.

Hawke-Petit and her daughters were found dead inside. Dr. Petit escaped the blaze and told police what happened.

The suspects did not enter pleas Tuesday, and their public defenders declined comment. Bail was set at $15 million apiece. Their next court appearance was scheduled for Aug. 7.

Long history of robberies
Hayes and Komisarjevsky each have more than 20 prior burglaries on their records. At the time of the killings, both were free on parole after serving prison time for burglary convictions in 2003, Bail Commissioner Garcia Harris said. They spent time last year in the same halfway house in Hartford before being paroled in the spring.

Prison officials said they reported each week to their parole officers and were employed full-time, a requirement of their release.

Farr said the parole board’s staff scoured its files Tuesday to see if any mistakes were made and couldn’t find any obvious problems.

“But three people died,” Farr said. “We’re not going to say, ‘Those things happen.’ We’ve got to see if there is anything we can do that would reduce the likelihood of this happening in the future.”

In Connecticut, prisoners may be released from confinement and receive parole after serving more than half of their sentences.

Authorities have not said what they believe led Komisarjevsky and Hayes to the Petits’ home.

‘Nothing else we can say’
The family issued a statement Tuesday through the hospital where the doctor was being treated.

“Our precious family members have been the victims of horrible, senseless, violent assaults. We are understandably in shock and overwhelmed with sadness as we attempt to gather together to support one another and recognize these wonderful, giving beautiful individuals, who have been so cruelly taken from us,” the statement said.

Petit, president of the Hartford County Medical Association, is a specialist in diabetes and endocrinology and is the medical director of the Joslin Diabetes Center Affiliate at The Hospital of Central Connecticut in New Britain. Hawke-Petit, 48, was a nurse and co-director of the health center at Cheshire Academy, a private boarding school.

The attack stunned Cheshire, an upper-middle class community of 29,000 just east of Waterbury and about 15 miles north of New Haven.

Komisarjevsky lived less than two miles from the Petits’ home. His family also released a statement Tuesday.

“This is an absolute tragedy. Our deepest sympathy goes out to the Petit family (and all those whose lives they touched). We cannot understand what would have made something like this happen. There is nothing else we can say at this time,” the statement said.

This is very true. No matter how careful you are, there is always a chance it will happen to you. People always say "This can never happen to me." or "This is what the police is for." The reality is -It can happen to anyone, so it can happen to you. and -Do any of you realize what BG can do while 911 is responding to your call? Chances are, if you have no way of defending yourself, then you're pretty much gone.

People in general tend to push their responsibility to someone else and place the blame on them when things didn't work right. Like they would leave their parenting to the teachers at school, and their own personal safety to the city and police. This is why we have so many young hoodlums and thugs running around. A teacher's job is to educate. And police can't ensure everyone's safety. That is your job.

yeah the bad thing is that it is happening here in Houston too. I live in a new subdivision and A neighbor told me yesterday morning that one of our other neighbors had their truck stolen from their driveway and that a week before that, someone was ringing their doorbell at midnight then tried to kick in their door. he told me that he saw them and that they were about 15-18 yrs old. I don't care how old they are, i would have shot some !!! If they are old enough to try a home invasion, they are old enough to get a buckshot in the
