    That's not what I said at all. Please do not twist my words to mean something other than what I rather plainly said.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Like I said, bullets don't stop just because you hit what you were looking to hit.
    what the **** do you think glancing off the pavement is???? derrrrrr, it's a ricochet. the chances of a bullet ricochetting off a city street is practically zip, it would embed in the asphalt unless the angle of entry was incredibly shallow (which would not be the case if you were firing down from an elevated position such as a porch). and if it did happen to hit a concrete curb, etc the velocity would again be so greatly reduced that it wouldn't pose much of a risk unless you were standing right on top of it.

    Video here (scroll down).

    Margaret Matthews, the 68-year-old Chicago woman who shot a 12-year-old she says bullied her, has no regrets about her actions.

    "I was terrified," the South Shore resident tells the Chicago Tribune. "The young man hit me in the chest with a brick. After a year of harassment, that was the straw that broke the camel's back."

    Authorities say Matthews, a retired cafeteria worker, returned home Tuesday to find some windows in her house broken. After seeing the boy and his 13-year-old friend running away, she called the police.

    When the boys returned, stood atop a shed in the front yard and began swearing and throwing bricks at her, Matthews grabbed a gun and fired a shot, hitting the 12-year-old in the shoulder. --People
    Ok. The woman is nearly 70 years old. After months of harassment/vandalism, the local punk flings a brick and hits the old lady in the freakin' chest. The kid comes back later with more bricks. She gets her gun.

    This was self defense. I have a hard time believing any court in the land would convict her.



    And I'd have done the same thing, only I would have hit all of the little bastard terrorists (shotgun).

    but they do slow down and lose velocity at a high rate of speed.


    D00d, I used to do this for a living..... Still train folks on it on the side.... It's a risk sure, but once she was hit with a brick, it's irrelevent.

    strawman, because any decent parent is going to make sure their kid doesn't get to that point. as has been said many many times in this thread. throwing the brick through the window was not a one time event. It was one in a long line of events of harrassment. If at any time, the kids parents had stepped in and disciplined the little bastard it probably wouldn't have gotten to this point.

    but to answer your question:
    If my kid had repeatedly, over a course of a year or so, vandalized someone's property and harrassed them and I hadn't cared enough to do anything about it...then I probably wouldn't care enough to complain when the kid got shot. unless, of course, I could sue somebody and get some $$$$.

    Wow that's like chicago proper, if she wasn't charged with a gun crime, there in chicago, well that should tell us something.

    Cops are not "help" anywhere, they are historians there to document the carnage....


    When seconds count the police are only minutes away.

    I think all my years of military training and expereience have given me more knowledge about bullets and ricochet that TED. :
