Skip to comments.Burglar Endagered! Atlanta mom shoots intruder in the face 5 times
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 familys 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 neighbors house. Slater is expected to survive

I'll be she's already shoppin'...
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.
“Exactly! I am awaiting news of some celebrity endorsements for the burglar.”
Oh heck yeah! Hey, guys like Sean Penn support Dictators like Hugo, I’m sure support from the Hollyweird types for this guy is a done deal.
This is why she needed a semi-auto with a high capacity mag. The bastard survived 5 hits.
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.
Slater is expected to survive
Can’t something be done about that?
the lady should upgrade to a larger calibre
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.

Sorry, missed the photo of the perp.
Yep, he be one of Holder’s people. My guess is, he be oppressed by da white crakas. It only be fair he take what rightfully be his...Yo!
To heck with that. Need a Ruger Blackhawk with .44 Mag or .44 Spcl semi-jacketed hollow points.
Funny how he already had his picture on file for us to remember what he used to look like.
Good Girl!!! Too bad she didn’t kill the bastard..I bet leftists out there are taking the side of the burglar, after all, it’s his “Right” to get free stuff, he’s been shafted by the man
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.
A couple of lower torso shots into his bladder and his Johnson would have been nice.
Typical looking “Obama son” waiting for the media to start posting pictures of him as a 12 year old to gain sympathy
Little awkward in a revolver.
“Underpowered ammo or tough burglar?”
He probably has a thick skull.
He should be easy to pick out of a lineup.
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.
Five shots in the face and he survives? I’m guessing from now on he will be some kind of ugly!
Not much inside, for sure.
