    Third "test" of Castle Doctrin ---

    The following is a condensed version of the newspaper article. >>.

    A woman shot and killed a intruder after he tried to break into her home for the second time.

    The woman was alone in her home when a man entered her backyard and tried to break into her home,startling the woman. The man then left the home and attempted to steal several empty vechs. He then tried to carjack a vech that was passing by on the street.

    When the carjacking didn't work he returned to the home and "begun charging at the woman". By this time the woman had"retrieved a gun". "Fearing for her safety the woman shot him dead".

    This will be the third "test" in my area of the state (Escambia County)since the "stand your ground" law took effect on Oct.1st of last year.

    The lady was not arrested. The investigation is still pending. --------

    It would appear to be a justifiable. Hopefully that will be the way it goes down.

    Self defense is a priority that seems to have been observed here.

    Here's a poster perfect for this situation. Someone should order a copy and give it as a gift to the family of the BG.

    I'm posting just to be included in any updates - like when investagation is over and she'd free and clear.

    Oh, BTW, Did they collect her gun till the case is over?

    You wonder how some of these idiots made it as long as they did. The guy had to be on CrAk or something to first try and break in (Alerting anyone in the house) then trying the second time. I'd be sitting in the La-Z-Boy squared up to the door eatin popcorn with my pistol ready and waiting for the fool to try it the second time. You'd think these idiots would know that the laws have changed regarding citizens rights to take care of business in their homes. Again saving us from this guy producing future stupid offspring.

    I hope her neighbors (especially other women home alone at night) remember to THANK HER for eliminating a criminal who threatened ALL of the people living around there.
