This was covered in another thread. It's not at all unusual to see people shot in the head with a .38 survive.
One thing nobody is mentioning. This woman fired 6 rounds and hit with 5 in the head and neck. That sort of kills any concern she may have had with over-penetration. One shot at what I assume was point blank range missed. This is not a criticism of the shooters skill. It's a fact of life. Having all shots fired actually hit the target is a newsworthy event.
Another thing I'm not seeing. Again, she hit with 5 rounds in what is normally considered a K5 zone, yet the intruder lived. It doesn't matter. The important part is that she stopped him from doing what he intended to do.
Would I prefer that he had died? No. I would much rather see him spend the rest of his life in prison or a wheelchair, and may it be a long and painful life. The reality of the situation is that he was charged with burglary, and will probably be out within the year, even as a repeat offender.
