    A 76-year-old woman was killed in a shootout as a gang tried to rob her outside her South Carolina home in the early hours of Saturday.

    If she had not opened fire the robbers would have gotten away. She was robbed in 2011. In turn, she got a gun and learned to use it. It's a shame she couldn't have found cover. She did not deserve to die in her yard. Your home is supposed to be a haven of safety, not a place to be ambushed by thieves.

    I hope everyone can find a moment to pray for Dot and her family.

    But she went down shooting. Awesome. Too bad she didn't win that fight. Let her act be a lesson to those thugs.

    Sure do wish the dead part would have been the other way around. Scum, just plain scum, at least they got caught and one has a hell of a belly ache.

    Maybe starting to shoot is not always the best idea. Money is no good to you if you are dead.

    the female of the three would prolly have held her down as the other two youths just getting their lives turned around raped her to death in her own home. at least she fought back instead of being a willing victim

    Manta we are Americans. Backing down is not in our nature. Sometimes we take chances with our lives, because it is the right thing to do. Sure we could die. Still, if we did not take our chances against an overwhelming army back in 1775, we would all be speaking English...oh wait a sec.:D

    Bradacious??? WTF? That guy was doomed from the start with a name like that. It will only be a matter of time before Sharpton and Jackson jump on this I'm sure. That evil white woman with a gun, shooting that young black man.

    We came very close to speaking German. A Lot of Hessian's deserted and stayed here. There was a large German speaking segment of the population. The Pennsylvania Dutch were actually Deutsche. At the onset of WW1 the country actually sided with the Kaiser but a massive propaganda campaign by the Pro English government aided by the "News Media" shifted the backing to the English. The Lusitania was deliberately set up to be sunk by ours and the British government. Sort of seems like today doesn't it.

    Again we have a gang of cowards attacking what seemed like an easy target. This target had teeth and grit. We need more people like her.

    I suppose it could be worse you could be speaking your allies language after that little 1775 misunderstanding with the English. French. :D Call it what you want sometimes not shooting is the smart thing to do. He didn't back down on your headstone won't help your friends and family that are left behind. And it certainly won't help you 6 feet under.

    When you're that age and only a few years away from death anyway this is definitely the preferred way to go out IMO.
    With any luck she prevented Bodacious form adding his genes to the genepool.
    And if the female goes to jail long enough she will also be too old to breed when she comes out.

    Who's to say they wouldn't have killed her anyways? They had a gun, and this was obviously a planned attack.

    That is why we are Americans. We fight for what is right. If the Brits want to give up their right (and ability) to fight against such vermin, that is their (your)right. Please do not try to convince us that laying down and taking a beating (or worse) is better than fighting back.
