    Some of you don't believe in private property, so this isn't exactly an astounding revelation.

    Hyperbole doesn't make your position any stronger. Was she safer INSIDE or OUTSIDE of the house?
    Was she safer insider her house with kids throwing bricks through the windows, or outside her house watching said kids running away screaming "she shot me!"

    Re: good for her. old lady shoots punk kid

    first.. good for her..
    she's perhaps all by herself in a neighbohood that likely was a descent place at one time, before being populated by lazy, disconnected parents with morals as low as thier unguided children.

    for those in defense of these "murderers in training"..
    when is a good time to "draw the line" ? after some random gunshots into her windows? after a actual break-in or two? after her home was burned?
    when is your life worth more than the one who is threatening to end yours and exhibiting behaviour that supported their claims?

    any thug with a pattern of criminal behavior is hardly a child. you want to do big boy crime, take big boy consequences.

    The police should have dealt with the boy far better then he did

    Throwing rocks does not justify potentially being killed

    they were not "rocks" they were bricks. there is a difference. All you lunatics sticking up for these little turds seem to want everyone to think that this was a bunch of little "Barney" watching, rope jumping innocent kids. The age thing doesn't really matter.

    This was a gang of thugs who had routinely harrassed this woman over a period of months. The cops had been called on numerous occassions with no effect.

    Assault with a weapon, be it a gun, knife, pointy stick or yes...even a brick, is a serious offense and you should expect your attack to be met with equal or greater resistance.

    McCoy said the boy had been breaking windows, breaking items on Matthews' shed house, and setting her garbage on fire.
    They sound like little ****ing angels, and potential arsonists, I think she was well within her rights, what could have happened if they lit a fire that spread, I hear elderly ladies are allergic to flames.
    So follow me into the desert

    I am not sticking up for the kid, he is a little thug who should be in juvinile hall. The police screwed up, but throwing a brick at a window does not justify being shot

    how about throwing a brick that hits someone in the chest?

    Not that she'd have to live with it long, since she's old and will be dead soon, probably before that kid is old enough to drive.

    Whew. Guess you told me.

    Those of us who don't live in these sad neighborhoods can't even imagine what it's like. Not a single week goes by without KIDS being shot to death by KIDS. It's a war zone. The cops are consistently a day late and a dollar short. The neighbors suffer from day and night blindness as they refuse to cooperate with the police. That's both for fear of retaliation and an apathy that most of us simply can't understand.

    This lady FINALLY drew the line. Was she smart? Well, that probably remains to be seen. Hopefully, neighborhood gangs will see her as "the crazy old lady that don't take no ****" and leave her alone.
