SHOCKED! George Steppy Stephanopoulos actually broadcast this. God bless and protect that gal and her little one. She'd just lost her husband to cancer on Christmas day.

Sometimes that happens.

It’s still a lovely story, and probably even more people are seeing your post now that had missed it earlier.

Sure strange that it didn’t show up.

My guess is that this determined young lady has a good father in the background that made sure his daughter knew how to handle firearms. I was incredibly impressed by her absolute presence of mind and sober intensity while she was on the phone with the 911 operator. She did not scream or get hysterical- she focused and that, of course, makes all the difference. We could have been reading a totally different story if she did not take matters into her own hands. Great story.

The 9-1-1 operator says don’t shoot. WTH! Someone breaks into my house, I will shoot.
Thanks for posting. I missed it.

My suspicion is that ABC thought the story was that the 911 operator said it was ok to shoot. Certainly the libs would not approve of that.

Dammshootin! Very wishy washy on the part of the 911 operator to the specific question:

can I shoot him when he comes thru the door?

Well, you do what you have to do to protect your
child.

Sheeeesh ..

Is there some kind of liability to 911
operators for advising the actual law?

The 9-1-1 operator says don’t shoot.

No the 9-1-1 dispatcher said "I can't tell you that you can do that but you do what you have to do to protect your baby,"

Which she did. That one won't be breaking into people's places any more.. ever. He has assumed ambient temperature. The other one turned himself in. Must have heard she was looking for him. :)

The gal looks like she might be right handed but with a left master eye, given the way she's holding that double barrel in some of the pictures at ABC.

I love the way it all ended. That’s some brave and sharp girl! I have a feeling that a lot of people will be helping her out.

It’s not easy to kill someone, even in self defense. It will probably bother her for the rest of her life. But—like she said—never come between a mother and her baby!

She had a double barreled shotgun, a pistol, and a German shepherd. I’d say she was prepared. Too bad she let the other one live. 2 men armed with knives breaking into the home of a single (widowed) pretty woman should be put down.

3,032 to 70.

What in the world are those 70 people thinking? This is a textbook example of “When seconds count, LEOs are only minutes away.”

I think something is strange in this story.

If I’d just shot someone, I would not be on tv re-enacting. Isn’t this a bit weird?

I don't know. If I'd just shot someone breaking into my house, for whatever reason, I might get the wife to take my picture posing with my foot on his face. I certainly wouldn't feel bad about it.

First time I heard about this, what a courageous woman, I hope she has an angel next to her forever more. And someone with a helping hand.

And this kinda makes me do a little out of the box thinking, and I have posted it before about having a camera equipped cellphone permanently attached to your home defense weapon such as a shotgun, not only can you dial 911 but you can also send a pic for recovery efforts of the perp who just did a Type O Picasso on the wall.

I wonder if they were embarrassed by the UK paper scooping them on this. It is the power of the Internet and the new media.

Well, there are 62 people who need to be in an idiots’ home. (IMHO, of course)

I think the loss of her husband was more traumatizing and she needs the money.
