    since she wasn't charged...apparently the cops disagree with you as well.

She had every reason to believe that if they were not forced to leave while she waited for the cops that they could throw more bricks through her windows, possibly hitting her again, and/or set something else on fire, this time it could have been her house. Given past suspected behavior by these boys, she had every reason to believe that her life could have been in danger by just staying in the house and waiting for the police to arrive.
    No. You don't stand in front of the window if you think something is coming through it. I've never seen a brick go through a solid wall. She felt safe enough to get her gun and return to the scene of the brick throwing. She clearly didn't feel so unsafe that she minded going into the house after a firearm, stop to call the police, and then returning to the scene of provocation. She wasn't worried about her house going up in flames during the time it took her to do that.

    I am just gonna do this: I am gonna wait for more information. But with what has been presented, this woman shot a kid without justification.

    And no, I am not defending the kids' actions either.

    I don't care how long you wait to do whatever it is you care to do. You don't matter to me in any way.

    What exactly "shows" that someone might be worried about their house going up in flames from kids, who have shown to have previous arsonist tendencies, who are on the property already and already engaging in violent behavior? Should she have called the fire department along with the police? Maybe you think she should have ran away? It is her house, her property and she knew she had a gun inside for protection. She had reason to believe she was in danger, whether she was outside or inside her house.

    I don't buy it. If they were in the process of setting a fire, fine. But there's no indication of that. They were throwing bricks. She was in her house. She chose to come out instead of waiting for police she had already stopped to call. She opened fire on kids.

    Thems the facts.

    well, if the kids had stayed away after the cops responded the first time, we wouldn't be haivng this discussion. It's not like this lady tracked them down and shot them. They chose to come back to her property and continue the harrassment. They got what they deserved. I'm just sorry she didn't have a seizure and fire off a few more rounds into the little thugs.
