She shot her stalker

Reported By Fox News on 2014-09-26 

 “A man was shot in the chest early Friday morning after trying to break into the home of a former girlfriend, according to police…. Citing the woman living at an apartment complex, [authorities] said she called officers regarding a former boyfriend kicking her door. Police said the woman fired two shots at the man once he made entry into the unit, hitting him once in the chest. The man fled from the scene and tried to hide in the area. A K-9 unit was able to locate him behind bushes… The victim … had been sleeping with a chair in front of her door to keep her stalker out….” After the incident, the victim (the woman who was stalked, not the man who was deservedly shot

he most definitely was not a victim) posted a blog entry, and had this to say: “I’m writing this staring at the mess the police left for me, in a bit of a fog.  After 6 months of stalking and threats against my life my stalker finally snapped and decided to kick my door in and make good on his promise. Out of fear, the past month I had begun sleeping with a chair propped against my front door, to give myself a few extra precious seconds in case of emergency.  I shudder to think how differently things might’ve turned out had I not barricaded the door. I awoke around 1:15 am to the sound of the door giving way after one kick followed by the sounds of my stalker struggling to dislodge the chair while forcing his way inside. I jumped up and grabbed the gun I’ve learned to do everything even shower with. I stood at the top of my stairs and fired twice. Hitting him in the chest, I hear his scream, his disbelief that I’d stood up for myself.. 0 to 100 in milliseconds. I’ve never been so afraid in my life. I do not know if he is living, but I do know the police have him and that’s what helps the most. For months of him evading the police I began to question whether he was unstoppable. Untraceable. Houdini, he would murder me and get away with it. As of now I’m in a haze of  guilt, surprise, relief  and disbelief. I shook as the canines drag him out from his hiding place under a bush. I survived, where so many people do not…. Those who believe there was other things to be done have never had someone tell you that you no longer deserve to draw breath and mean it. And for the ‘shouldve fired a warning shot’ folks: There are no warning shots, a gun is a deadly force, you only pull that trigger if you are in fear for your life and all other methods of deterring are gone. When he kicked my door in, there was no longer a deterrent preventing harm. Warning shots are dangerous and could hurt the unintended. This is not a wild west movie. That’s what responsible  gun ownership is.”
