Columbia Sportswear's Gert Boyle survives home invasion robbery
http://www.krem.com/news/northwest-n...107227989.htmlyou can watch an old interview with her, she is a spunky lady:WEST LINN -- Columbia Sportswear Chairman of the Board Gert Boyle survived a home invasion robbery Wednesday night.
West Linn Police said a man approached Boyle at gunpoint at her home just before 7 p.m. She triggered the panic alarm in her home security system, and when police arrived they found Boyle with her hands bound. A police sergeant also saw the suspect running from the home, and police dogs and crews began a manhunt. A suspect was taken into custody just before midnight, and police are interviewing him as they continue to investigate.
A Columbia Sportswear spokesman told NBC News that Boyle suffered minor injuries, including bumps and bruises, but is otherwise fine.
Boyle is a famous face of Columbia Sportswear, the company her parents founded. Her tough demeanor is reflected in her 2005 autobiography, "One Tough Mother."
Glad she is ok. She needs a shotgun, not a panic alarm. Kudos to the responding officers.

Homeowner with "Panic Alarm" = Bat phone & signal
Armed homeowner = Batman utility belt
Personally I'd rather have Batman's utility belt than his phone number & calling card.
That's just me though.

Sounds like she needs to be "One Tough Armed Mother."
Lucky the LEOs got there when they did and the BG was only JV.

(snort) "Tough", eh? Wow. No amount of "tough" makes you bullet proof. She needs a gun and better situational awareness.
She needs an 'all weather' Glock and some 'all weather' training. She's already got the spirit and guts to get the job done!
