Yet the idea that a home invasion occurs whether or not anyone is occupying the home at the time of the burglary like the OP implies, is misleading.
I suggest that the OP reads this:
Actually that is what I was pointing to. What I said was this is the first home invasion type scenario as supposed to a burglrey that takes place with no one present.
The definition of the term home invasion was not really my point regardless. My point was that nowhere are we safe. My point was also that typically in the past the theives here have targeted vacant properties. In this case they had to have noticed the difference between vacant and occupied.
