She did very well indeed. Tell her everyone thinks so and giver her an extra hug. Heck call her dad and tell him how smart his daughter is.
But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...

She did a great job...maybe heading to the Police or Fire station would have been a better move than a parking lot...but good on her!

First take the girl out for something better than pizza for doing the smart thing. I have preached to the wife a 1/2 dozen times get the plate number first finally sunk in.
I have never understood the "drive to the station" thing.
Durr if the person following you sees where you are going they are going to stop following you.. good thing BUT they are not going to get cought in the act.
To me I can see why they want keep you on the phone and tell you to drive to a lacation where an officer or two is waiting.
You know "im in the blue chevy with a baby on board sticker and XXX-XXXX license plate". And have you drive threw a intersection or something where the officer can be looking for you and the suspect following you, and turn in behind the suspect.
Makes more since to me
2.Going to a public store makes it just that much more easier for the guy to say he was just going to that store.
The priority for loved ones in this situation should be to get somewhere safe , not help catch the bad guy.
She did everything correct...

Yea I realize both of your points but thats what im saying is to getting to a safe location.
If the police are able to "catch" them in the "act" .. a "routine" traffic stop would be a great way for you or your loved one to get to safety.
ie they are held up by police for a period of time even if nothing but a warning or whatnot.
where IMO going to the safe location of a Sheriffs office allows them the option of going where they want because they broke there chase themselves. and could EASILY watch at a distance and return chase later at a greater distance once the person now "feels" safe b/c they have made contact with a LEO.
I dont know, Just makes perfect since to me.
thanks guys/gals for the words, ya I am taking her to a nice dinner for doing an excellent job with all of this. But as of now I am trying to get her comfortable with her car again she doesnt want to drive it in fear he is going to come back. I am trying to get her to go shooting with me more and she says she wants to learn so now we just have to go...

Maybe you could swap cars with her for a week or two.

Your lady did the right thing, just as the lady in the story did. Your lady was lucky the other lady mother of three was not. Hope your lady now knows she NEEDS a gun and carries it everywhere 24/7 365. The next lesson may not be as easy to walk away from.
