    “The fight quickly turned physical,” the report states. “(The man) repeatedly punched her in the face and started pushing furniture around. (The woman) stated she had her gun and the fight moved toward the rear of her home when (the man) charged her. She stated he was so big that she had no choice but to shoot (him).”

    The child and another adult in the home witnessed the shooting, the report stated.

    Depending on how sensitive folks are to the conditions leading up to the shooting, depending on how justified folks feel the statutes allow a person to be if physically attacked in that way (ie, did she contribute to and provoke the situation?) ... will make all the difference. She got arrested, despite the witnesses and the description of the "assailant." Might well be an example of getting booked merely for being the one left standing. Might well be an example of being held to account for deliberate contribution to escalation to a criminal degree. Hard to know, from only the initial reports/claims.

    It's difficult to comprehend why this Hot- head would be in the woman's home in the first place. Agreeing with ccw9's guesses; I would think..... "the one who is left standing.
    160 YEARS AGO, when life was more simpler, and more just, by legal definition...... no problem with the woman's actions.

    It sounds like if correct , a pretty good case of a disparity of force.

    A grown healthy man outright punching a six year old child is a threat that childs life or for serious bodily harm to that child.
    Forget the rest of it. Woman against male she should have plugged him when he started to punch the child in defense of her child.

    Good for her, except possibly for shooting him in the hip, instead of CoM.

    On the face of it, Mom seems to be in the right. I'm just wondering how many DV situations could be avoided by Moms that know how to defend themselves.

    You show and you possibly use deadly force on my son more then likely deadly force is coming your way . Don't know what happened but when the fist hit her kid i would say all bets are off.

    If you (a grown man) punch my 5 year old in the face, you better pray to whoever you believe in and do so quickly and I'll leave it at that.

    At face value, it sounds like a clear cut case of SD.

    According to my reading of the OP's link, "The mother has not been charged with any crime". Where did you two get that she was arrested?

    If a grown man punches one of my sons I might stop shooting him when I run out of ammo

    She absolutely should have confronted the man for hitting her son. When he turned on her, all bets are off.
