One thing I do before going to bed is I sit here and read the news. One thing caught my eye, the title read… “Teen Mom Shoots, Kills Intruder With 911 Dispatcher On The Phone“. Of course, I had to click over to read what this was about. It was about a young mom, who recently lost her husband to cancer. Two men were trying to break into her home, and she stayed calm, something I know I would have not been able to do. She went and made sure her son was safe, then she called 911, of course after getting her weapons.
I am sorry but if I was ever in this situation, I would do the same thing this young mom did, and I wouldn’t think twice about it. If you want to enter my home uninvited, you better expect me to protect my family, and I will shoot to kill. After reading this article, I googled the persons name that was left dead in this young moms living room.
I was beyond disgusted with one of the things that popped up… “Hero or out of control redneck?” Let’s get one thing straight you don’t have to live in the South to know that if someone is breaking into your home, you grab a weapon and take actions to protect your family. This author kept rambling about the age of the ladies husband, and how the killing was not justified. Can someone please explain to me how killing someone who has entered your home uninvited and is a threat to you and your family is not justified… This happened in the early morning hours, the guy was found with a knife in his hand… but this young mother didn’t have the right to protect herself and her child… BULL SHIT!
This person then goes on to state she was just looking for an opportunity to satisfy the bloodlust that many Southerners have… You have got to be kidding me, can we say racist!
I am a born and raised “Yankee”, but I have been a Southern Gal for the last 8 years of my life, I will always consider myself a southerner, and I think the remarks of this person, only shows his ignorance. He has the comments on this article closed, because I am sure he is worried about the lashback he will get from his article.
It honestly makes him look extremely ignorant, he keeps referring to the young girls husband’s age, like it is any of his business anyways.
This author feels the young lady should have simply waited for law enforcement to show up at her door and rescue her… PLEASE, the intruder was already in her home, he had a weapon, yet she was to wait until help arrived, this guy is a bigger idiot then I thought.
Let me tell you a little story, first off we own several weapons.. There were several times when we lived in Tennessee I had to call my husband home from work because there were people messing around. I always called the cops first, funny thing, my husband would get home from work before the police would arrive… Why is that? Because my husband was more concerned for his families safety then the police… Now I am not saying anything bad about the police, I am just stating facts.
Now if you were in this situation as this young mother, what would you do? Wait for the police, or take actions into your own hands… Remember the intruder is in your home, and your child is in the next room…
