Burglar Endagered! Atlanta mom shoots intruder in the face 5 times
Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | 01/06/13 | F-105D Thunderchief

Posted on 01/06/2013 11:37:25 AM PST by F105-D ThunderChief

An Atlanta mom took matters into her own hands on Friday when confronting an intruder. The unidentified woman hid with her 9-year-old twins in a crawlspace as a man broke into her house and began rummaging through it. The alleged burglar, Paul Ali Slater, eventually found the family’s hiding space, but not before finding himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver. The woman fired six shots, five of which hit Slater in the face and neck, but he managed to flee after the family ran to a neighbor’s house. Slater is expected to survive

“ding himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver. The woman fired six shots, five of which hit Slater in the face and neck, but he managed to flee after the family ran to a neighbor’s house. Slater is expected to survive”

A larger caliber is in order here.

Underpowered ammo or tough burglar?

Great shootin’ mom!

The “Obama’s Son” burgler was actually at little risk, because as is well known, Urban Ferals use of their cranial content is very minimal.

Five shots to the face and neck from a .38?

1) She's been spending time at the range.
2) He's a tough SOB.

Poor misunderstood soul!

This is a call to action! The liberals must show solidarity with the burglar, and protest outside this evil gun owner’s home! This travesty cannot go unanswered!

This is exactly why we must get firearms out of the hands of the bible-clinging, gun-clutching, white-trash hillbillies that overrun Amerika.

This poor man was just pursuing his chosen vocation, trying to eke out a meager living, and this woman committed an OSHA violation by resisting him.

Self-defense against Eric Holder's people needs to be a crime.

Kudos to the mom. Tight shot group. She’s ready to move up to a .45. Bigger holes.

Unfortunate.

Anyone who invades the living space of a peaceful citizen deserves whatever the peaceful citizen can do in defense.

Another report had him shot three times in the torso, stomach liver and lung injuries, and two shots to neck and head. Still the thug ( the mug shot you expect ) kept moving. Through and through wounds. Ball ammo apparently.

Just when he was starting to turn his life around. He turned around and ran.
The only good decision he ever made.
Too bad we’re all paying for his treatment. We need to buy that lady some hollow points. I assume she is small framed and might not be able to handle a 45. Better she keeps what she seems to be good at shooting. I don’t think I could do that well in a pinch.

There was a reason why our military went from the .38 to the .45 many many years ago and the birth of the 1911 pistol.

As bad as the Urinal/Constipation is, the actual article didn’t read anything like this. IN fact, the cops seemed rather tickled that she shot so well.

The version that I read was closer to what you have> Also, she had him down and stood over him the prep pleaded, “stop shooting” the he got into his vehicle when she ran to the neighbors house for help, he drove a short distance and crashed.

This is an important lesson to everyone about “stopping power”. She was a very good shot to get five on him, hit him with all five, and in the right places. In a typical fight, you have to assume missing more than once, especially if they’re moving.

While arguments can go on all day about the best caliber, etc., these sorts of situations happen far too often, and many combat soldiers have tales of shooting the enemy and being shot themselves, and still having to “finish up” with knives. It happens to police a lot, especially if the perp is drunk or drug crazed, and feeling no pain.

Which is a great reason that if you need a handgun, you should pick up a knife as backup. Most of the time you won’t need a backup. But then, most of the time you won’t need to fire your gun, either.

That's why I have a Glock with two 15 round mags loaded with hollow points, and an AR-15 style rifle and two 30 round mags also loaded with hollow points ready at all times.

Of note here though - consider the situation. If this guy was only there to "rob" the place, why did he keep looking until he found her and her kids - in the crawl space as I understand it? I think he intended something far, far worse. He wasn't looking for stuff, he was looking for people. Shame she didn't have a few more rounds, could've improved the world just that much more.

How much real time do you think this guy will serve?

The Judge will forget that if he sought to find this woman and her two kids so badly that he checked into the crawl space he had a plan of what to do to them. Most criminals would avoid finding the homeowner, take what they wanted and leave.

This guy did nothing to her and the kids because she shot him so he is merely guilty of an unarmed burglary.He won’t get much time.
We cannot punish people for what they intended to do—or rather so far we haven’t. It is like finding someone guilty of ATTEMPTED murder. Is there really any difference between attempted and actual. The fact is that person meant to kill ,but circumstances stopped them. Is someone who meant to kill any less guilty than one who did.?

According to the law Yes. According to me—No.
