Apparently some 12 year olds can lift 308lbs and can proficiently kickbox too,...who knew?

I saw the thread title and my stomach went into knots, I've just started leaving my 14 yr old in charge for short periods of time but home invasion is easily my biggest fear. Then I clicked opened the thread and my jaw hit the floor. I'm sickened - they're so young!! I agree if they didn't have weapons I wouldn't shoot, but I'm darn sure I'd beat some tail!!
An innocent bystander who picks up a weapon is no longer an innocent bystander.
1st off a 12 yr old that is into ty kwan leep or what ever you call it, prob wont be breaking into your home.
2nd some freak of nature 12 yr old prob wont break into your home either.
That have parents that are raising them to become someone. So lets keep it on track. Even if it were them, its nothing that a good frying pan, rolling pin or any other kitchen utility couldnt handle. They are not fully developed.
So to be realistic you beet them down. I do not care what anyone says about there super hero 12 yr old, get a angry man, 6 foot tall and 205 pounds charging with a full head of steam and the little guy is going down and down hard.....
Remember a controlled environment is one thing, a full out street fight is another..

I'd have to say that the oldest would probably be in big trouble dealing with me. A lot depending on how it went down, they would all be tied up until LE got there and their parents would have a lawsuit filed on them.

More than likely the "parents" are behind their behaviour. Who would be willing to harm a very young person, even in the commission of a bad and violent home invasion? Most people would say perish the thought.
Our family values have broken down, and it's now just a matter of who can take from whom and use whatever means necessary, including their own children.
Yet, those "responsible" parents will be the first to cry to the media if one of their little darlings does indeed get injured or killed so we have a Catch-22 situation with no real answer.

Well, I'm glad to see we aren't into shooting 12 year old kids... Keep in mind the female victim was 50 years old.. probably still young enough to deal with unruly children but could have been the same size as my aunt Jeanne... 4'10' about 100#.. now Jeanne could have handled them punks.. but maybe not every one of that size could...
And you never know... light the oldest up with a laser and he might say... "Whatcha gonna do, shoot me? You'd shoot a kid? go ahead Mr. Man... I'll own you!" And he might just, at that.
It could be worse!
Shooting would not be my first option. But in the case of an older woman, not physically capable of giving the kids the beat down they should get, then yes, by all means. Start with the most aggressive/closest, or the one with the most dangerous weapon. I don't think the other two would stick around to see how their rocks fair against a very small, very fast piece of earth. They may have had a poor education to this point, but I doubt they are that stupid.

I guess it'd depend on how big the 12 year old was if I'd shoot him or not. I met a 15 year old once (I know 3 years can make a difference) that was at least 5 inches taller than me and had about 100 pounds on me. In the dark, I wouldn't have been able to tell if he was 15 or 25. If this 12 year old was a bigger kid like that, I don't if I would've shot him or not. Depends on if I could tell if he was 12 or not.
The 10 and 7 year old? I'd have them hog-tied before they knew what hit 'em.
