    Same thing here -- luck was the only thing that prevented a tragedy, like the death of a neighbor.
    The only problem I see with your argument is that drunk drivers willingly put others life at risk when they get behind the wheel. This woman was scared and trying to defend herself, that is a different scenario all together.

    I can't believe the stupidity of people taking up for this kid. The lady did call the cops and then the kids came back. Of course the little bastard is going to deny doing anything wrong. My only complaint is that she didn't blast his nuts off to keep his sorry ass from reproducing more thugs like himself.
    It was kid with a brick and a broken window. I don't think shooting them was the necessary response.

    Kid + brick + window < bullet

    All I see is felon + potentially life-threatening weapon= self defense(bullet)

    So where do we draw the line? She was obviously in a great deal of fear and the cops were not able to do anything to help her.
    I'd draw it shy of using lethal force against a kid with a brick.

    You can kill someone with just about anything, so simply saying "the brick could have hurt or killed her" is a bunch of crap. You have to look at the percentages, and I'd imagine that a brick kills A LOT less often than a firearm.

    Further, she was being pelted when she stood at her window to look at or yell at the kids, and when she went outside to confront them. I can understand why, but if someone's throwing heavy **** at you, putting yourself in range of the heavy **** is a dumb thing to do.

    I'm not saying these kids are in the clear, they should definitely be punished. I'm just saying that she took it WAY too far with the gun.

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

    It was a group of kids with bricks threatening what they thought was a helpless old lady. brick vs bullet, who gives a rat's ass, the little bastard got what he deserved.

    If you threaten me or mine, I am under no moral obligation to "play fair" in my defense.

    To be fair, according to her and the neighbors it was several kids and multiple instances of property damage. If it was simply one instance I doubt anyone would be defending her.

    One's intoxicated by fear, the other by beer. You have to hold them both accountable.

    Yes, but she did not knowingly put others at risk. The risk was a by-product of her defending herself, the drunk conciously puts others at risk.

    absolutely. I think that is what the smarty-pants lawyers call a "pattern of behavior"
