    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.
    I would agree whipping out a gun on these kids and blasting away was pretty damned rash, but I'm trying to think of an alternative and coming up blank. Should she have thrown the brick back at them? That's a crime and a cause of action. Should she have just drawn down on the kid without the intent of firing? That is a crime and possibly a cause of action, too. Chased them with a baseball bat? Crime and possible cause of action.

    And of course she couldn't have been telling a little white lie about that could she?

    Think about it..... she just shot a kid, the cops were there, and she said she didn't mean to hit him.


















    Yet she did....... just by accident...... or not.

    good point. could be the difference between attempted murder and reckless endangerment if charges were ever to be filed.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Here is the thing, nothing she did was a crime. The kids were trespassing and threatening her, even if she killed them I would not have felt sorry for them. There has to be consequences, and now days all people want to do is send these criminals of any age, to a therapist and then when they think they are all better, they let them go and society faces an even worse threat.

    That all depends, though. Discharging a firearm is probably a crime in that city. If a jury does not believe she had adequate provocation, they would convict her of a crime similar to attempted murder or some crime of recklessness.

    It's not really common sense; it is what the charges are, what the evidence is like, how sympathetic she and the victim are and who makes it through voir dire.

    It would be an interesting case to see prosecuted.

    She consciously went back into her house, got a gun, went back out, pointed it, and fired it.

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

    I'm not sure either, but this wasn't the way.

    If we're assuming that the truth is being told about these kids, we have to take her word about the accidental part.
