Woman hiding with kids shoots intruder
WSB-TV [Atlanta], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:markinalpine, 1/5/2013 12:24:56 PM

LOGANVILLE, Ga. — A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday. The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar. But the man eventually found the family.

Comments:
She had a .38 revolver. She had better get a semi-auto pistol with a high capacity magazine before the obysmal won and his demonrat thugs succeed in getting them banned.

She needs to work on her shot placement. He shouldn´t have survived the encounter with her using .38 caliber rounds.

I had a cop show me a photo once taken back in the ´30s, when most cops used .38s, of a armed perp who had been shot more than 40 times before ceasing to resist. That´s why a lot of departments bought .357s.

Poorly written article, first it said the punk had face and neck wounds, then farther into the article it said he had punctured lungs, punctured liver and might not survive the night. I think she did pretty good but she needs a semi-auto with a 17 round clip.

Hope he assumes room temp.

I believe Slater should be charged with his own `attempted murder` as his actions caused the homeowner to put his life in jeopardy during the commission of a serious crime.

That was some good shooting. She might want to consider the use of starburst ammo that expands to twice its diameter (.38 x 2= .76, or 3/4 of an inch) upon impact. That destroys lots more tissue, and takes the burden off of the surgeons, who don´t have to operate. He would have died in his vehicle, if not sooner.

Sometimes you have to be practical. I carry a .380 Kel Tec that is easily concealable and only weighs about ten ounces loaded.

It´s very comfortable and I find myself carrying it more than my other pistols.

It may be a little underpowered but it´s more effective than the heavy .45 that I left at home.

Too bad he lived, he sounds like he practices crime as a way of life since he had six arrests. Plus, the possibility of a lawsuit for self-defense these days is very real. They would probably throw in racism for good measure.

+P hollow-points means that the lowly 380 is much better for defense than it used to be when FMJ (full metal jacket or "ball") was the norm. Spend your money for high end ammo for carry, just make sure your firearm functions with it as some HP bullet shapes may cause problems in some guns. Buy cheap stuff for practice or plinking.

Heck, she hit this Gomer with five out of six rounds. Pretty damned good shooting if you ask me. The cops around here have been known to fire their Glocks in a close quarters gunfight until the slide locks back and miss the other guy every freaaking time. Oh for seventeen. And they spend lots of time at the range.

One thing about wheel guns, they rarely jam. Semi-autos; another story.

#9/#10/#13/#19: EXACTLY

The 38 revolver is a good defensive arm because of its convenience of carry/concealment along with reasonable recoil for someone who doesn’t have a strong wrist.

I still prefer my M1911 while my wife carries a 5 round Taurus loaded with 38-Special +P topped with the best expanding bullet available!

The fact that she got 5 out of 6 into him is indication that it was/is a good arm for her. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a 5 rounder to begin with.

But, as previously posted, with four exit wounds, it was probably loaded with Hard Ball which is a big No-No for a defensive round.

As a minimum it should have been an expanding round with consideration for +P or +P+ although a +P+ round may have been too much for her to handle.

Hard Ball is for NATO troops. Defensive Rounds are for Defensive Carry!

FWIW: The Fascists in DC and many state capitals have wanted to outlaw defensive rounds in the past and we can expect it to be part of the new push by the Kenyan and that witch from San Fran.

Kafir

PS: Like others here, I love happy endings and #19 nails it for me!

It wasn´t just a quick snatch and run burglary. It makes one wonder if he was intentionally looking to harm people since he went upstairs to the attic. He´d be healthy and probably free if he had done a quick grab and go of a few things on the main floor. Oh well, I really don´t feel too sorry for him.

I see from the photo that the alleged perpetrator was African American, while the husband of the alleged potential “victim” appears caucasian, so we might assume that his wife is also, possibly. In any case, I suspect that this is a racist crime, and that the alleged perpetrator was in fact, the victim. I think we should all send contributions to the victim support fund, in care of the Reverends Sharpton and Jackson, and rest assured that justice will prevail.

How long would it have taken the police to get to her house? Long enough for him to kill three people with his crowbar. Another vote for the NRA and gun owners. I congratulate her, but she might need to learn how to aim better, if she shot him in the face. The body is a bigger target.

Yes, the full size 1911 in .45ACP is heavy, but it is also quite effective. That is why I always carry TWO. On my person. Because any machine can malfunction and will do so at the worst possible time. I also carry eight extra eight-round MAGAZINES. Got that, folks? MAGAZINES! I carry eight extra MAGAZINES because every gunfight in history was won by the last round fired and I don´t want to be the first one in the fight to run dry. Also because no modern semi-automatic firearm will accept or function with CLIPS. I have tried full and half moon CLIPS, M1 Garand clips, M14 and M16 loading CLIPS, etc. None of my semi-automatics will accept any known CLIP. They all function as designed with the proper MAGAZINE.

I know, I know. I am a fanatic. But firearms are my life. It is what I do. And remember: when choosing a sidearm for personal protection; it is not supposed to be comfortable, it is supposed to be comforting.

#22 is right. This man was probably looking to harm someone. He already has simple assault on his rather long record, perhaps pled down from a more serious charge.

As a woman who has never married, why did she waste time calling her husband? If I thought I was in danger I would take the phone into the attic with me, and the gun, and call 911 myself. What a dopey woman! Can´t she make a decision without her husband? Yes, good for her she shot him, but calling your husband first, a waste of time.

Maybe the perp drove past their house and saw the two 9-year-old twins playing outside. Thinking they were home alone, he decided to go and get them.

Maybe for personal use; maybe to sell.

MINNEAPOLIS — Even as President Obama and progressive activists are trying to sell the nation on hiking the national minimum wage to help restaurant workers and other low-wage employees, the Internal Revenue Service is seemingly determined to make life harder for those same workers. A change in tax policy implemented Jan. 1 will prevent restaurant workers from collecting automatic gratuities — the added 18 percent fee many restaurants charge to groups of eight or more — as part of their tips. Instead, that added fee will be included in their payroll, meaning workers have to wait up to two weeks

An Obamacare Milestone

This week Obamacare passed an unflattering milestone. As of today, the Obama administration has spent longer botching the implementation of Obamacare than the Roosevelt and Truman administrations spent fighting and winning the Second World War. America’s involvement in World War II began on December 7, 1941, with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It ended 1,365 days later on September 2, 1945, with the surrender ceremony aboard the U.S.S. Missouri anchored in Tokyo Bay. President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law on March 23, 2010. Today, December 18, 2013, marks the 1,366th day of post-enactment Obamacare implementation.

Are too many kids taking
antipsychotic drugs?
Consumer Reports, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: markinalpine- 12/15/2013 12:49:29 PM     Post Reply
The number of children taking powerful antipsychotic drugs has nearly tripled over the last 10 to 15 years, according to recent research. The increase comes not because of an epidemic of schizophrenia or other forms of serious mental illness in children, but because doctors are increasingly prescribing the drugs to treat behavior problems, a use not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). And a disproportionate number of those prescriptions are written for poor and minority children, some as young as age 2. Doctors are prescribing antipsychotics even though there’s minimal evidence that the drugs help kids for approved

DUBAI - Iran is moving ahead with testing more efficient uranium enrichment technology, a spokesman for its atomic energy agency said on Saturday, in news that may concern world powers who last month agreed a deal to curb Tehran´s atomic activities. Spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi was quoted by state news agency IRNA as saying that initial testing on a new generation of more sophisticated centrifuges had been completed, underlining Iran´s determination to keep refining uranium (snip) Some experts believe the IR-2m can enrich uranium 2-3 times faster than the IR-1.

OSLO - Scientists have produced hydrogen by accelerating a natural process found in rocks deep below the Earth´s surface, a short-cut that may herald the wider use of what is a clean fuel, a study showed on Sunday. Used in rockets and in battery-like fuel cells, hydrogen is being widely researched as a non-polluting fuel, but its use is so far hampered by high costs. A few hydrogen vehicles are already on the roads, such as the Honda FXC Clarity and Mercedes-Benz F-Cell, and more are planned. Researchers in France said aluminum oxide speeded up a process by which hydrogen

The Obama administration quietly finalized the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, a provision in Obamacare that will cost nearly $60 billion over the next five years and raise health care premiums by 3 percent. The final rule, published on Nov. 27, imposes a fee beginning in 2014 for health insurers with premium revenues over $25 million per year. The annual tax is levied for “United States health risks,” and is hidden from consumers since it is directly assessed on health insurance companies. David R. Burton, a senior fellow in economic policy at the Heritage Foundation, said

Three puppies were rescued from the Muslim Brotherhood before they were used as "puppy bombs" at a protest in Tahrir Square two weeks ago. The group planned to dip the dogs in gasoline and set them on fire and using them against their opponents. Robyn Urman, a pet rescuer in New Jersey with Pet ResQ Inc, was contacted by Mervat Said, an animal rescuer in Egypt, about puppies Cleopatra, Cairo, and Egypt. This is not the first time this has happened, and not all the dogs were rescued. Now Urman´s group is trying to find a loving home for the dogs. Cleo

Environmentalists have galvanized behind a movement to resurrect wolf populations in rural America. Public support, particularly from urban regions, appears to favor the idea of returning this iconic symbol of the wilderness to America’s rural landscapes. (snip)In Catron County, New Mexico, aggressive Mexican gray wolves are terrorizing residents. Here wolves are killing pets in front yards in broad daylight, and forcing parents to stand guard when children play outside. The threat has become so ominous the local school district has decided to place wolf shelters (kid cages) at school bus stops to protect school children from wolves while they wait

Sergei Lavrov said samples taken from the scene of the August 21 attack, which killed nearly 1,500 people and sparked a diplomatic crisis that saw the US face off with Russia over military intervention, matched those of an earlier incident in Aleppo in March. “Russia, at the request of the Syrian government, investigated [the March 19 incident] and the results of this investigation are broadly available to the Security Council and the public.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
