    He's still in the hospital and may not make it.


    Well he should have called the police, oh wait.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    There's a big difference between beating and robbing a man and this situation. In all cases, the kids need to be charged and disciplined. In the case of the woman, no one needed to be shot.

    As far as the story goes, they were throwing rocks and bricks at the woman and intentionally harassing and damaging her property.

    Any reasonable expectation of safety they should of been shown, flew out the window as soon as they started to harm her.

    Fear for her life.
    Whereas going outside virtually guaranteed that she would be exposed to further violence. And, she wasn't as much at risk of losing her life INSIDE the house as she was when she went OUTSIDE.

    That's simply undeniable.

    By leaving her home, she escalated the situation to a point that someone being shot became an almost 100% outcome.

    Arguments like these "hey let's just shoot the brats" arguments we are hearing...they are what diminish the credibility of pro second amendment arguments.

    Just sayin'.

    No. She went outside. She put herself back in harm's way after calling the police and not waiting for them.

    It's entirely deniable. She went outside with a ****ing gun. It was just as easy for them to come inside the house and harm her further, anyway.

    By leaving her home, she escalated the situation to a point that someone being shot became an almost 100% outcome.
    By throwing bricks at her, they escalated the situation to a life and death one. By refusing to leave when she brandished her weapon and told them to, they escalated the situation to a life and death one. They had many choices. And I bet that next time they think twice before ****ing with her since they know that she'll ****ing defend herself with deadly force instead of sitting around like a pansy ass waiting for someone else to come and take care of things.

    I measure a couple of things before I decide if force has become necessary.

    Repeated abuse, previous contact with the police, degree of harassment and bodily harm.

    I know when I was a kid, even though I was a destructive somewhat evil little bastard, that any confrontation with the police would have scared the **** out of me.
    Obviously, these kids did not have that fear.

    I think she was well within her right to do something, instead of wait.
    Who knows how long it could of taken, she did say that they attempted to kick in the door or kick the door.

    I really find this very sad. She should be trapped in her own home, while her property is being destroyed? Seriously??
