    Atlanta police are following up on a home-invasion and attempted robbery captured in a dramatic video.

    The video shows a skinny bandit who has trouble kicking in a front door of a home at 1163 Morley Ave. in the Boulevard Heights neighborhood near Grant Park. After his first failure, he stalks off but moments later he returns and tries again and again. The door finally swings open on his third kick, and masked men swarm the front entrance with guns drawn.

    Police are searching for the six men involved in the May 11 invasion. While all were masked, one has a visible tattoo that detectives hope will provide lead to the gunman and his cohorts.

    No contact was made with the residents and the gang fled once they heard yelling from the homeowner

    Police ask anyone with a tip on the identity of the bandits to call and the tipster will be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000. Any information on the case can be submitted anonymously to the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477), online http://www.crimestoppersatlanta.org or by texting CSA and the tip to CRIMES (274637).

    How much loot could you get to be worth splitting six ways and be worth the risk and possible jail time? They must have had a tip that they were drug dealers with cash or old people with lots of gold maybe.

    If they broke into my house I have no cash or jewelry really and maybe $1000 in used electronics.

    Why would they all run in with guns drawn?

    It is strange. I looked the house up on Zillow - it's private and just a regular middle class house.

    Something definitely seems amiss here.

    Animals. Tell your politician this is why you need a gun. See what he has to say.Just think what happens to any females in the house once they enter.

    Could be a known drug dealer - likely drugs and or cash to rob.

    I don't think just one gun would've been much help against that crew. You need a mini-gun and Neo on the trigger:

    I think we need a committee to determine how the system failed these young men.

    I'm waiting for the day when one these home invasions goes horribly wrong for the robbers.
    It would be great to see a video of the homeowner with a semi auto laying down 10 rounds of 00buck in a couple of seconds.

    Even if trained and practiced, with as fast as a break-in happens, I don't see myself being able be alert and fast enough to get to a gun without accidentally shooting the dog or my own damned self. Especially if I am asleep when it starts going down.

    You need layered security.
    Lights, alarms, cameras, locked doors and gates, dogs.
    Anything to slow them down, blow their cover, make them think twice.
    Still no guarantee but why make it easier for them.

    Yes.

    Here's a very inexpensive, helpful device as one additional deterrent...

    Obviously the ordinary citizen has no need for a gun?
