    GOOD: Woman Defends Herself With A Gun - Prairie Du Chien, WS

    TH - Local News Article



    PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Wis. (AP) -- A man shot by his neighbor while he allegedly was vandalizing her home is charged with criminal damage to property -- and the neighbor isn't expected to face any charges.

    The criminal complaint filed in Crawford County Circuit Court said 53-year-old Harvey Townsend used a metal fence post to smash 16 windows and a storm door of the neighbor's house in Steuben Oct. 20.

    According to Sheriff Jerry Moran, the neighbor, a 54-year-old woman, said she fired warning rounds from a pistol but didn't intend to hit Townsend, who fled and was located by a police dog in a nearby woods with a wound to the abdomen.

    The woman has since filed for a temporary restraining order against Townsend. A hearing on that action is scheduled Monday -- the same day Townsend is due for his preliminary hearing.
    Two things wrong with this story:

    - 1st the story identified the BG as the victim
    - 2nd the woman firing warning shots, not intending to hit the BG.

    Seems to me that if you are going to let a round loose, you need to be intending to hit your target.

    Mike,
    I don't normally nit-pik, but I really don't see anything that calls the BG the "victim". Did you see that in a different article about the same shooting?

    OOPS!! Sorry, Mike. I didn't see it in the title of the article which didn't show up in your quote. I stand corrected.

    The third thing wrong with this story is that she didn't not end the threat permanently, and from the sounds of this wacko, a RO isn't going to keep him away.

    Stay armed...more action is on the way...stay safe!
