liberals/democrats disapprove of this. If it were up to democrats we could not own guns so these 2 monsters would have raped and tortured and killed this mother and child.These socialists would have us unarmed.
You know... I was thinking. She was on the phone with the 911 operator (that had to be somewhat comforting) AND she had all that time to “think it out”. I mean she could mentally prepare herself to aim and fire. In no way am I saying she was as calm as a cucumber. I do think, however, the bit of time may have helped her. IMHO.
Maybe you should find out what the police were up to at the time in this small town of over 7000 befoe making statements like that. Also a video segment on GMA of outide the house gave the impression this house was isolated.
This woman will have no trouble finding a husband, though I feel bad for her recent loss. She needs a vacation, someone to take care of her for a while.
She had to ask...?
RUEAL - RURAL
The picture is of the survivor - Stewart. But, you are correct, both likely have rap sheets.
‘I suspect that his demise prevented a great number of future crimes.’
‘tis why crime is falling. concealed carry, open carry, castle doctrine, stand your ground - all of it is kicking in.
I carry a gun because I can’t carry a cop.
I have to politely disagree - we don’t care for orange in our house any longer now that we have a freshman Sooner! ;-)
“... someone to take care of her for a while”.
I actually hoped she would bring some family in with her OR move in with some family. She just lost her husband, has a new baby and now this... (if she was my daughter, I’d be there or she’d be home with me). Support from family or friends is always a good thing during those difficult life times IMHO.
then she said like William Money, any man dont wanna get killed, better clear on out the back.
This creep just beat to death a beautiful white woman. He beat her to death with a baseball bat. That’s after raping, and torturing her for 2 hours. Her name was Hope Melton. didn’t hear about it? That’s because the liberal mainstream media hid this story. Her story needs to be told so that we all can know what is out there. The media is the enemy.
Wasn’t a door, it was ajar, and it was full of jamb
Pray tell, what could the police in a town of 7,000 possibly have had going on, that was more important than a woman trapped in a house, with two armed invaders kicking down her door? A speeding ticket to be issued? Perhaps a person ran a stop sign?
Most people would call this "Prioritizing" - it's not a difficult skill to master. Did the police have a whole series of houses being attacked by knife wielding teenagers?
Again, I'll wager she could order a pizza and have it to the house before the Police can get there. And this isn't an isolated case, it's not limited to her - the same situation exists where I live, and the odds are fairly high that you enjoy the same status.
"I carry a .45, because they don't make a .46"
They do however, make a .457 and .50, if you’re into wheelguns.
Both are somewhat uncomfortable to shoot, an nearly impossible to conceal, so I’d stick with the .45.
She prioritized the actions exceptionally well too ;-)
But there is the Thug Report that posts what the protected class is doing on the streets.
Rural residents often get screwed in this manner. They still have to pay property taxes which fund the sheriff's department.
I am a police officer in CA, and you need to recognize that it was a 21 minute CODE 3 roll. In my patrol area it takes 10 minutes to roll from from one side to the other while driving 30 mph OVER the limit. In my county we have stations where a 20 minute roll is common. Driving CODE 3 is very dangerous for the officers involved, and the public so I don’t believe they deserve this criticism. Kudos to momma for blasting that fool. Thanks...
I'm rolling my eyes at the stupidity of the blog's author. He doesn't seem to get that McKinley was in imminent danger.
I would hope it was a “code 3” considering what was happening. It wasn’t “criticism” but pointing out the reality. In many places the leaders and police do not want people armed and able to protect themselves, despite 20-30 minute response times.
Your post made me think that Justin Martin was the same person who raped, beat and then murdered Hope Melton, but he's not. Nickolas Jermaine Miller was the name of the person charged in that incident.
“This woman will have no trouble finding a husband....” I’d guess that finding a husband is the farthest thing from her mind at this point.
They love fat-faced guys with a goatee in McAlester. Reminds them of ... that which they will never see again.
P.S. I have friends in Blanchard. God bless and keep Ms Mckinley.

Xcellent common sense advice....well done
The dispatcher deserves a GOA-NRA nod
I claim my Okie kin as southron of course
And nobody try to say otherwise.....ever hear em speak
Crackers being bad....
Love the way that lady talked to her...lol
She needs a new dog
Dogs I have.....the perp would prefer a chest full of 00 to them
Scumbags watch the obits to see who survived and whether they’re likely to be vulnerable or not.
A widow with a little kid....easy mark.
“She needs a new dog”
FYI, FedEx will not pay to have a window pane replaced, even if the “brave” carrier was teasing your dog.
Thankfully, the dog was not cut by the smashed out glass.
oh yea...maternal instinct goes into high gear when ones child is seen as in danger....remarkable the woman was of the mind to “ask” if she could shoot the intruder while on the phone. I think she would have shot the guy anyway...I would have.
I’ve known a couple of police officers who shared some of the expectations the public has but they have no understanding of the regulations etc. officers have to work under...let alone the overall type of citizen to contend with and what they’ll face even in what would seem a non-threatening situation.
Thank you for your service to those in your state Ariel..be safe.....
“This woman will have no trouble finding a husband”
This woman has no need for a husband. She seems to be quite capable of taking care of herself.
They “outlawed” high speed pursuits in WV after a cop plowed into a teenage girl and killed her whilst ripping after the perp.
That’s we should all be allowed to “conduct business” as we see fit until the cops arrive.
Safe innocent bystanders.
Can’t see any downside.
I just checked the blogger's About page. He describes himself as "an author who presently resides in upstate New York, after a long stint in the filth of southern New Jersey." Guess where I live. Good riddance, Mr. Crook! LOL.
The blog did read like a parody, didn’t it, but I think the author meant every word of it. What an elitist, insufferable snob he is!
You’re right...he didn’t think a thing of it through. Had she waited for the cops to arrive before shooting, she would’ve been the one probably raped and murdered. The perp was wielding a 12 inch knife when she saw him through the window (peephole)!!
That blog author is a total idiot. What a waste of brains!
I heard about Hope Melton...on FR, of course.
