I was impressed with the 911 operator. She was calm and very supportive of the caller (break-in victim). The 911 operator seemed to know how to help the lady through the tough decision that lay in front of her. This was a much better 911 operator response than Joe Horn got in Houston a while back!

Kudos to the 911 operator, and best wishes to the shooter, she will likely pay an emotional price for what she had to do.

My wife and I watched this last night on Fox News and then asked me to show her how to use my XD45 pistol. She said that she'd been thinking about that scenario even before the call was aired. I took her to the range for the first time last Valentine's Day. She was pretty good, but needs some practice.

The really scary part is that home invasion take place more and more often during the day. That's nuts!

I'm not giving legal advice here, but simply relating what my barber told me. He just finished his concealed carry course and said that the instructor told him that in a scenario like this (shooting and immobilizing and/or killing the intruder), the best thing to do is as follows:

* Call the police and do not hang up until they arrive
* Tell the officer that you shot the intruder and.....NOTHING MORE
* Tell the officer that you respect him or her, and their position/authority but that you must speak with your attorney before answering any questions.


I found this pretty interesting.

I'm glad she was able to do what she did. The man left her no other choice.

The Lincoln county District Attorney gave the lady a pass on the 8th of December, four days after she killed the scumbag. In OK the DA does not have to take a righteous shoot to
the grand jury.

I'm not one to promote suits in this day and age, but I literally think she should sue his estate for pain and suffering. She has suffered and will continue to suffer. The guy probably doesn't have much, but in my book, she can have it all.

Yeah I think she deserves everything too from that man. She does need to sue!! That had to be a very hard thing to go through I think she did the right thing and she waited till he came in.She will suffer with that for the rest of her life

Saw the story on FOX the other night. I thought it was great that the victim stayed so cool under that kind of pressure, and I agree that the 911 operator did very well.

Never crossed my mind to sue, though. Doubt that the intruder had a pot to piss in.

What an emotional and powerful tape.

being in the military i see alot of different laws as well as interpretations. i cant pull them up for you at this point, but defensive shootings were being persicuted based on the emotional state of the intended victim. if they were calm and cool and made the choice to defend themselves (or property, family whatever) they were going to be arrested for murder. the reasoning being that a person who was calm and under control was not in a position of danger. they basically told us guys in the service, if we ever fired defensively we were going to be arrested and we were going to prison. we had training and were able to respond to situations like this before it escalated into a defensive firing situation. so coming from that i am glad to see it work out for this woman.

p.s. didnt specify that i was warned of this in washington state.
