    Don't take that comment out on me! If I lived in Texas, I'd consider it a compliment!

    Makes me laugh the way people perceive Texas, but they'd probably laugh at the way I perceive California as I've never been there.

    Good for her... I now keep wasp spray in my vehicles and near all garage entrances... Won't paint the perps orange but will disable them long enough for LEO's to take them away... No problems going in and out of military bases either...

    GOOD FOR HER.As far as using something that is not designed or has a warning against being used on Humans,You could be setting yourself up for a lawsuit if you used Wasp Spray and blinded the guy or caused him to have vision problems,In a life or Death situation I'm in the "use whatever you got camp" but the less stuff you give a prosecutor or the BG's attorney to try to nail you with the better off you are

    She's on the right track about keeping her trap shut during an active case. Though, she's "tweeting" and posting about it anyway.

    It's also California. I'm sure the criminal's going to get some legal advice that'll consider the lying-in-wait aspect of her claims. Set a trap, waited his arrival, then sprung it on him. Hopefully, such claims from the defendant won't happen. He's getting everything he deserved, IMO, but she might well learn the value of keeping her trap shut until the case is over.

    What can I say? Guns just aren't for everyone. If she is not willing to own and train w/ a handgun, then that is what she should have. But good for her on surviving.

    Other tweeters thought Yu's actions were unnecessary, even crazy. One wrote: "This is assault. Cops can't beat suspected criminals who are fleeing, and citizens can't blast them with bear spray. He had a knife? Please. You mean the one he opens packages with? Sonya was not in physical danger. . . y'all are a bunch of Texans if you think this violence is justified."

    Ugly set of lib responses by the "twits," eh R&G? Unsurprising, really.

    One wrote: "This is assault. Cops can't beat suspected criminals who are fleeing, and citizens can't blast them with bear spray.
    This was halting a crime in progress. Appropriate levels of force most certainly can lawfully be used to halt crimes in progress ... both with LE and citizens.

    "Had a knife ... please. You mean the one he opens packages with?"
    Yup, that would be the one. I open packages with mine, too. And it can rip out a throat faster than some might imagine. A bit of pepper spray to avoid such a thing seems to make one heck of a lot of sense.

    Sonya was not in physical danger. . . y'all are a bunch of Texans if you think this violence is justified."
    Arguable, perhaps. But then, she was at a place she had every right to be, had caught a criminal in the act, and was faced with stopping the crime against her. Pepper spray isn't hardly violent force upon a person, though it's certainly attention-grabbing from the criminal's perspective. Which is the whole point: appropriate force to stop the crime.

    Well done, I'd say.

    Toss the book at him. Inform him in simple, easy-to-understand words that he's not wanted in their community, that crimes won't be tolerated. Remind him that, with all the heavily-armed citizens living in the community, crimes against residents can be a very risky proposition. Ask him whether he'd have preferred facing an armed resident, instead of merely being sprayed like a dog (bear).

    And unsurprising that it's the DailyMail in the U.K. that's so heavily advertising those twit tweets. The more things change, the more some things stay the same. Ah, well.

    As a Texan I'd say the burglar and the person that made the comment are both idiots, guess he doesn't know Texans don't carry bear spray,we carry guns!

    Well, said, mprp. Considering San Fransiscans, consider one's Texas comment a compliment.
