    Woman shoots, kills intruder in Detroit

    3rd time in the last week that Detroit has gotten on the scoreboard.

    "A woman on Friday shot and killed a man trying to break into her west side home, making it the third time this week that a Detroit homeowner with a legal firearm has killed an intruder"

    Police: West side Detroit homeowner shoots, kills man trying to break in | The Detroit News

    I enjoyed the last sentence....

    "Police Chief James Craig has repeatedly expressed his belief that legally armed citizens can deter crime because if more people were armed, criminals will think twice about breaking into their homes or attacking them"

    Well, I wish the Chief well but he is giving to much credit to the criminals. They aren't thinking twice.They aren't thinking once. They are just not thinking at all......

    Good on her! Sorry she has to suffer with the knowledge that she had to kill a man, and hope she recovers from this, but she deserves a Bravo Zulu for taking care of business.

    Detroilet would do itself some good by having public outreach classes/awareness on responsible citizen gun training to have many more trained and armed to defend themselves and their homes. Expand on the Neighborhood Watch type stuff. And launch a public campaign. "Crime is deadly, for criminals."

    Good for her because if it wasn't him it would have been her, I know it's sad that she took a live and she will have to live with that for the rest of her life but she is alive today. Like the story said it's sending a message to the criminal that if you break in somebody home you might get shot and this is leveling the playing field so beware bg.

    No.... no.... I think the removal of criminals with the reported methods is working just fine. Just fine indeed.
    Word will travel, and the Buffalo effect will get some traction and natural selection, as it has for 100's of thousands of years will prevail.

    DaTwa is a dangerous place with vicious dirtbags roaming seemingly everywhere. Fortunately, there are some 'herd thinners' out there, too.
    Congrats to another homeowner who was able to protect herself and her family.

    Well, she had to do what she had to do. To hell with the intruder.

    One of our Detroit brethren needs to nominate Police Chief Craig for mayor!

    The sitting Mayor Dugan just ran against a former Detroit police officer and current Sheriff of Wayne County (where Detroit is situated). To the residents' credit they elected someone with the experience and proven skill set as a turn around expert rather than on the basis of his skin color. The Chief needs to stay where he's at. His force has stepped up drug raids and it has gotten to the point where he is receiving death threats. Perhaps Detroit has finally found their General Grant.

    After he's finished, maybe the remaining law abiding citizens will be able to form the neighborhood watches some of you are recommending. I'm not trying to be mean or disrespectful but until that time, its probably best you just don't speak of what you know nothing about. Having "good" ideas with no first hand experience what gets people killed.

    The home owner told the scum bag to stop and yet he continued in his effort to break in. The lady did what she had to do and in the process did the rest of us a service.

    One less scum bag on the street! The neighbors should take this lady out for an expensive steak dinner.

    It doesn't have to be an either/or. Detroit citizens arming themselves, getting training, and organizing to police their own neighborhoods works very well in conjunction with the police doubling down on raids in bad areas etc.... The hide and call 911 thing just isn't good enough.
