Cops: Mother of two surprises
intruder with five gunshots

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, by Christian Boone

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/4/2013 10:17:01 PM

The Loganville mother of two assumed the knocks on her front door Friday afternoon were from a solicitor. “Don’t answer,” she yelled to her 9-year-old twins playing downstairs. When the visitor began repeatedly ringing the doorbell, she called her husband at work. “Get the kids and hide,” he told his wife. As he dialed 911, his 37-year-old spouse, who works from home, collected the children and hid with them in a crawlspace adjoining her office. By that time, the intruder had forced his way into the three-story residence on Henderson Ridge Drive with a crowbar,

Selfish gun-clinging woman deprives criminal armed with an Assault Crowbar the opportunity to victimize herself and her two children. For shame!

I am sure this story happened everyday, but never gets media attention.

Good for her. The Obama-voter criminal had multiple arrests/convictions but was still free to victimize hard-working, tax-paying honest citizens.

Look for the Obama ´Justice´ Department to prosecute her...

FTA: ´´My wife’s a hero,´´ the woman’s husband, Donnie Herman, told Channel 2 Action News in a brief statement.

And prior to that in the article there was this FTA: ´´He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver,´´ said Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman, who relayed the woman’s narrative to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He asked that her name be withheld.

Hopefully the woman was photographed and fingerprinted now that the proper authorities know she has a gun. s/. What if there had been multiple perps? She´d have been out of bullets. And libs wonder why anyone needs high-capacity magazines.

His kin or his ilk will come for revenge.

But a shotgun, young lady.

12 gauge pump.

Nothing says ´don´t move and say your prayers´ like a round being pumped.

Nothing.

And the perp won´t be eligible for parole ...

Reason why you A) have bigger bullets and B) more bullets. I suggest a Glock 9mm handgun next time as it holds 10 to start with and you can get more with bigger magazines.

FTA: The woman fired six bullets, five of which hit Paul Ali Slater in the face and neck area, Chapman said. But Slater was still conscious.

“The guy’s face down, crying,” the sheriff said. The woman told him to stay down or she’d shoot again.

Slater, unaware that she had emptied her chamber -snip-

The injured burglar eventually made it out of the home and into his car, driving away before deputies arrived on the scene.

Five bullets at point blank range? Time to buy hollow point bullets and maybe an upgrade to a .357 magnum will do the trick next time.

Yes the National Rifleman Magazine which I have been receiving for 47 years DOES have a section titled ´the Armed Citizen´, it´s where I first turn to when I get my Magazine...I enjoy reading about women,senior and young teen citizens who foil the bad guys bent on doing them harm and get usually what they deserve. This lady was lucky, the evil doer was not put down and could have ended the story a different way. The lady needs to know where the OTHER cartridges are and how to reload with some haste. She had every right to finish him off and with a little more practice she could hit her target where most effective. Good for her. She refused to allow herself and her children to be a statistic.THAT´S WHY WE NEED GUNS!!!

Tucker and Loganville both are close to iffy areas. The metro area, save the north and northwest suburbs, runs the gamut, really. Gwinnett County, where this is, used to be pretty nice, and there are still some nice areas. But they didn´t plan well (planning/zoning or law enforcement), so now they have an overabundance of low-end housing, a complete mishmash of ethnicities, and something like 500 gangs. Not a place I want to live.

For home defense..a Mossberg 500 series, pistol grip and birdshot, good for 20 to 30ft. Big handgun ammo will not only penetrate the walls of your home, but also the neighbors.

What? The police weren´t there in time protect her? You mean these real life situations don´t work out like the lefties claim? No result like the alarm company ads where a disembodied voice says, "Identify yourself!" and the criminal gets a nervous look and runs away?

That´s why a firearm allows a woman and her children to have a fighting chance to protect themselves. Without that pistol, the cops would have shown up only in time to bag up her and her kids.

BTW, you shotgun fanboys: a shottie takes two hands to operate and doesn´t work easily in tight spaces - like a closet. You can´t carry a flashlight with it to determine the threat before pointing a loaded weapon. That´s why we chose a couple high-capacity handguns (Glock 19 and Sig P226) for our home defense plan.

Another nonsensical shotgun claim. Do you really think a drugged out, cornered, or enraged criminal is going to simply run off after you rack a shell? Would you expect this panicked woman hiding in a closet with her children to disclose her hiding place, hoist a shottie, chamber a round, and hope the dude runs off?

That´s not our plan. As in this situation, a criminal will be feeling the bullets impacting his body by the time he sees or hears a firearm in my house. We won´t kill someone over our insured stuff, but if he meets up with one of us, it´s far past time for a warning.

Do you really expect - in a situation where you are dumping adrenalin into your body, - you and your spouse (and your kids) will have the presences of mind and coordination to rack a shotgun shell to try to scare someone off? It may work in the movies and the ads, but it´s not a sound self defense plan.

A 3” Judge loaded with 5 rounds of 410 triple-ought buck would have done a fine job here. He would not have gone anywhere with most of his head on the wall behind him. And aim need not be that good, just aim in the general area of his head.

A good .45 ASSAULT pistol with a HIGH CAPACITY magazine would have done the trick. Hide the kids and then meet him in the hall and empty the magazine. Immediately reload in case his brother Jumail is still lurking somewhere outside. From the picture I can be certain he voted Obama. That means his skull is about 3" thick surrounding a walnut sized brain. A .38 just does not have enough penetration for that. If there is no brother Jumail lurking outside empty that second magazine as well, just for effect. Go make a big pot of coffee because the police will be there in 20 minutes.

We can debate calibers and loads and weapons all day and I often do. The important thing is she engaged her target, changed its behavior and stopped the attack.
Further destruction is just icing on the cake.

I used to work in Loganville. Nice town in Walton County (not Gwinnett). The sheriff actually chuckled during his radio interview when he described finding teeth on the floor of the shooting scene.

And yes, hollow points for home defense. They´ll expand before they pass through the body, even in the larger calibers like .40 or .45.

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.

Lumberton Independent School District Superintendent John Valastro has decided to keep transgender substitute teacher Laura Jane Klug on the substitute roll with the district.

Klug most recently worked as a substitute at Lumberton Intermediate School for a fifth grade classroom. Klug was asked Tuesday not to return to the classroom pending a decision by the Superintendent.

Newark — In one of the largest Superfund cleanups ever proposed, federal officials yesterday called for a bank-to-bank dredging of the Passaic River that would remove more than 4 million cubic yards of toxic sediment from the river bottom — enough to fill up MetLife Stadium twice. The $1.7 billion cleanup, under study for 25 years, would target the lower eight miles of the highly polluted waterway, from Belleville to Newark, which remains heavily contaminated with high concentrations of dioxin, PCBs and other contaminants left behind by more than a century of industrial activity. Officials said those responsible for polluting the

Pennsville Twp. — Though a township man found innocent of gun charges in an incident with police is having a hard time in returning to a normal life, people on both sides of the case hope that the incident last year serves as a lesson for lawful gun owners. In February 2013, Samuel McGraw, 24, of Clark Street, was charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for unlawful purpose after he allegedly pointed a shotgun at police from his porch. At about 2 a.m., McGraw said he looked outside his home in the Deepwater section of the township and saw

Bridgewater — Bridgewater´s retired chief will now collect a salary as a county undersheriff, in addition to his chief´s pension, according to a report on MyCentralJersey.com. Bridgewater´s former police chief, Richard Borden, will take charge of the Somerset County Sheriff´s Office administration division on Monday, just six months after leaving the Bridgewater force, the report said. He´ll get a nearly $90,000 salary (replacing an undersheriff who had been earning more than $100,000) and will collect a pension of $105,000, the report said. Borden was hired by Somerset County Sheriff Frank Provenzano, with whom Borden worked in Bridgewater from 1982 until 2001.

Neither snow nor rain can keep these couriers from the completion of their appointed rounds — even if they aren’t too swift. A Brooklyn woman got the surprise of her life this week when three letters mailed to her 45 years ago finally arrived. "I´ve been crying since Wednesday," Susan Heifetz told the Daily News. "I´m flipping out. This is not normal to get three cards from 1969." The red-letter week consisted of a message from a young man she briefly dated who was serving in Vietnam as well as two birthday cards for her 19th birthday: one from her

Nashville, Tenn. – A convicted robber and parolee was arrested shortly after he allegedly robbed a pharmacy in east Nashville. Officials with the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said 22-year-old Justin Conyers entered the Rite Aid on Gallatin Avenue around 10:40 a.m. Wednesday and acted as if he was going to buy something. He then allegedly walked behind the counter, placed a knife against the clerk´s throat, and then took cash from the register. (Snip) Conyers was charged with aggravated robbery and held in lieu of $100,000 bond. In 2011, he was convicted of robbing two east Nashville businesses and

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
