    Good For The Lady

    Woman shoots intruder after alleged assault




    PHOENIX (KSAZ) - A homeowner fought back when she shot a man who allegedly broke into her home and attacked her with a gardening tool.

    Phoenix Police escorted a 47 year-old woman into a crisis van after she opened fire on a suspect who attacked her.

    "He had blood all over here, so I don't know if that was caused by gun shot, but he was a tall skinny kid, and he was Caucasian," said a neighbor.

    Sounds like his life choice was poorly selected.

    He attacked her, she was armed and ended the attack. Good for her!

    um... what is a "crisis van"? i mean, it kind of sounds self explanatory...and i guess the idea is okay... but i'm still getting a bitter taste from it.... am i the only one? how quickly can it go from "crisis van" ---to--- "rolling jail cell"?

    Good kid who was turning his life around by doing a bit of interior gardening. Do your gardening outside folks, your own house, to avoid lead poisoning.

    Just another case of a person exercising the natural right of self defense, and further illustrating how more often than not the police cannot arrive in time to save you when an assault is in progress.


    Aside:

    Neighbor: "I didn't know she was equipped."

    I like that. "I'm equipped."

    Question: Will the good taxpayers of Arizona be covering the cost of his "Rehabilitation" or is he facing his maker? Couldn't find anything in the article that addressed his status.

    Threat stopped. Good.
    LE saying she was in the right. Good.

    This is yet another case where I wish the home owner was a little more accurate with her pistol.

    I'm expecting to hear from the parents of the B&E scumbag telling us how he is a great kid, would not have harmed the home owner if she would have simply complied,
    school officials saying how they all knew this young man as a nice boy..
