One of the saddest examples of how far our media has fallen

Generally speaking I don't watch the news and I can't stand any of the major outlets. I am particularly anti places like MSNBC or Foxnews that have no objectivity. But this style of reporting should revolt everyone.

What happened to our news being objective analysis instead of blatant marketing for whatever idea a particular reporter wants to push???? I guess being objective is too boring and no one would want to watch...

So here's the highlight important bits
  • Intruder breaks into house
  • Women takes two children and retreats through THREE LOCKED doors and up into a crawlspace
  • Intruder hears someone in house, breaks through THREE LOCKED doors and opens crawlspace.
  • Woman shoots intruder when she has nowhere else to go

and the USAtoday seems to think that the point they should lead with and bold is.....

The man pleaded for her to stop, but she kept firing until she emptied her rounds

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...ruder/1821905/

Honestly do you think the media was intending to tell the facts of the story, or to build public opinion that what she did was wrong???

W
T
F

I'm not personally a big self defense fan because I don't personally believe I could shoot someone except in the most extreme of cases. But damn I'm amazed at what this women did, she likely has little training and completely panicked and yet she still hit 5 of 6 shoots. Considering I believe police hit < 20% of shots fired on average that's amazing. She's either one hell of a shot or he was REALLY REALLY close. The simple reality is that I think in that situation the vast majority of people would be so scared that no matter what the guy says almost everyone is going to be pulling that trigger until they hit and empty chamber. It's not evil intent, it's unbridled panic.

Un ****ing believable by the media.....

Yeah, that poor unfortunate criminal, pleading for his life. It just breaks your heart.

**** him. If he was just there to steal, and knew they were hidden away, he could have simply looted valuables and got away. Instead, he went straight after his intended victim. Oops! The only bad thing is that the ****ing animal survived - hopefully he'll die in the hospital.

Nice hatchet job by another liberal rag.

This, wish the basterd had been killed. Now he is wasting tax payer money in the hospital. People who break into others homes know the risk they it may be the last stupid thing they ever do.

I think the subtitle was intended to be attentionly-grabbing gruesome, and I think your reaction is reasonable. But the article seems to show her in a positive light.

She was on the phone with her husband.I just listen to that phone call. it went something like this.
Husband/Are you at home?
Wife/Yes i am in the closet with the kids.
H/if he opens the closet door you shoot him. Remember what I have shown you & taught you.

At about this time husband calls police from his work.

W/hes opening the door
H/SHOOT!
H/ To 911 operator/ She is shooting
H to W/ Shoot him again! Shoot him again.

The guy was freakishly calm through the entire event. My guess? he knew he had trained her well for just this situation. I really was quite amazed at what I listen to tonight. Props dude.

Edit--- Found it. man this husband is calm cool & COLLECTED! http://foxnewsinsider.com/2013/01/10...home-intruder/

Get him a bandaid and sandwich, honey.

I'd have told her to keep shooting also. A gun emptied in him is a gun that won't be taken away and used on the wife and kids.

Breaking into somebody's home is stupid. It doesn't have to end in death. If she shot him, and clearly gained the upper hand, she should have stopped, let the cops pick him up and let a jury decide his fate.

You idiots probably defend cops who murder idiots.

For some reason, I would normally agree to a degree. But the fact that she had her kids with her makes me more sympathetic to her actions.

Um...if it were my wife and kids I'd say shoot that mfer till he was swiss cheese. But then, I don't want anything to happen to my wife and kids. Guess that makes me...weird...

IIRC, she used a .38?

Twenty or so years ago, a Billings policeman shot a man with his .38, had it wrestled from him, and killed with his own gun. Empty that .38 in your target. No pity when someone's after your wife and kids.

Exactly correct action, empty the gun then take the kids and run to the neighbors. Shooting only to gain the upper hand just gets the innocent killed.
