    I'll bet he thinks twice before slapping another woman around...(if he's able to ever think again) Her problem was panicking and lieing about it, but a good lawyer should be able to bring her through. He's lucky in more ways than one...not only surviving the head shot but also that she didn't choose to empty the mag on him.

    ''She initially was claiming it was an abusive relationship, but then she started asking for a lawyer,'' McAllister said.
    So, wanting to speak with one's attorney means one is likely guilty, eh? Think hard about what this is showing, if you believe that the investigating team is your friend in a bad situation.

    In this case, it might well be that he was abusive, with a history of it. Unknown about the details in this case, but it brings home a point that's important to remember: you may well not have complete control of your faculties in the immediate aftermath of a situation, so many details may best be left until after you speak with your attorney.

    you should have to have a license NOT to carry in Saginaw...
    glad he is ok...one in a million chance...and I agree it must have been a FMJ...
    that would have sucked to survive a GSW to the head, and die from the GSW to the thigh tearing the femoral artery...

    He has a domestic violence history. She has no record. Hmmm...

    I'm sure it was all just a big misunderstanding.

    There is not great placement of the bullet in this case. She shot him in the forehead, not in the ocular triangle. Foreheads are extremely hard and can divert bullets from the brain. A .25 in the ocular triangle would have been much more effective than this .45 to the forehead. It demonstrates again that placement is far more important than caliber.

    quite possible , unless he dated my baby girl . They might date her , they might go away , however caution is in order as redneck or not daddy will step in if they offend her .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Actually, I have heard more than one story about bullets doing the same thing.

    Also sounds like she shot him from behind (...entered right rear hip...). She may have to splain that one.

    THE SAGINAW NEWS

    Jimmy Taylor was lucky enough to survive a gunshot wound to his forehead, but doctors are struggling to save an eye that popped out as a result, police say.

    Prosecutors on Thursday charged a Buena Vista Township woman with shooting her 34-year-old boyfriend in the head during an apparent domestic dispute.

    Latoyya K. Junious, 25, of 4872 Eva faces charges of assault with intent to commit murder of Taylor, possessing a firearm while committing a felony and carrying a concealed weapon at 2093 California in Bridgeport Township.

    Saginaw County District Judge Terry L. Clark arraigned Junious and set a $150,000 cash or surety bond, meaning she must pay the full amount or pay a surety agent 10 percent to guarantee her appearance in court.

    During a Thursday, June 5, preliminary hearing, District Judge Kyle Higgs Tarrant will determine whether enough evidence exists for Junious to stand trial in Circuit Court. A conviction could lead to a sentence of up to life in prison with the possibility of parole.

    Taylor, who also suffered a gunshot wound to his inner thigh, was in St. Mary's of Michigan hospital in critical condition Thursday.

    So what's wrong with asking for a lawyer? The way he words it, it's as if you're automagically guilty of something just because you decide to shut up, exercise some discretion and ask for a lawyer.
    My thoughts exactly (though I'm wondering how you can be automagically guilty of something? Is this what happens to Harry Potter?)

    This supports an important subject. Carrying a handgun does not mean that you will be able to defend yourself. I am a strong believer in arming yourself legally. I am also a strong believer in being able to protect yourself with hand to hand combat and being able to RETAIN your weapon.

    Not that this guy was bad...I don't know the whole story, but a bad guy can sustain numerous good hits from a handgun and continue to fight. It doesn't matter if it is a .22 or a .45. One must realize this and be prepared to flee or continue the fight another way if necessary. That may be getting offline and firing more rounds, going to an edged weapon, or going hand to hand.

    I believe that everyone who carries a handgun should take some sort of self defense class. At the very least to be able to retain your weapon in a struggle.
