Cops: Mother of two surprises intruder with five gunshots photo

AJC-

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, authorities said. He allegedly rummaged through the home, eventually working his way up to the attic office.

    Obviously his head contained nothing vital in order to survive five gunshots.

    I will have to forward this to my former Governor, John Rowland, who now has a talk show from 3:00 to 6:00 PM on WTIC in Hartford, CT.

    He is usually a pretty conservative guy but of late has been questioning why anyone would need a 30 round magazine. Other than his apparent lack of understanding of why the 2ND Amendment was put in place, this should illustrate why. Luckily the perpetrator was stopped, but just barely.

    now this is just wrong. She must have been using a light load, we need to get her some hotter loads for that 38… tragic just tragic, or maybe get a 357 instead.

    This mother acted stupidly!

    Mothers all across America should be disarmed at once!

    Now … poor, dear, Mr. Slater will prolly be on Socialist Security Disability for the rest of his life, unable to burgle, rape, and murder as his job description requires … he’ll prolly wake up crying from the nightmares … I would hug him all night, if it wasn’t for that damned Moose!

    The only thing that could have made that story any more heartwarming would have been the words, “…after weeks of horrible, excruciating pain the savage thug finally assumed room temperature.”

    But wait….. wouldn’t it be more in line with the progressive way of thinking for all three in the home to die and the knuckledragger to walk away with all the swag?

    Just saying! NAACP to file a lawsuit in 3…2…1..

    One of the rules for gunfighting: Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a 4.

    Since the intruders don’t seem to ever obey any laws, we should make more laws, new and improved laws, with extra harsh wording that will scare them into obedience. That will stop criminal violence and then we can all live happily ever after in the new socialist utopia that the progs have so generously designed for us.

    Great story. I’ll bet they upgrade to a caliber with more stopping power so the next one won’t have them worrying about the guy ever getting paroled.

    I agree with Pearl Clutcher, that asshole should have been dead. Her husband was a jewel calling her a hero – which she is, I know he is proud of her.

    The first thing I built was a safe room, when I bought my first house. And each house there after.
    There is food,ammo water,ammo, phone,ammo, guns, ammo, gas masks, ammo. Fire suppression and video cameras outside the house and inside.
    It was made to withstand a tornado. And or a terrorist. It’s a vault.
    I agree, carry a large caliber gun.

    Not to start a fight here, but the 357 carries plenty of packing power and does not kick back as hard as the 45 thus allowing second shots if needed.

    What pisses me off is that the thug is now recovering comfortably in a warm prison hospital bed, where he’ll be fed and taken care of at our expense until he gets released early someday.

    I would have finished his ass off with five more shots.

    She didn’t even fire a warning shot or tell him she had a gun. I’m sure you’re as sickened as I am for this poor guy.

    Everyone should call the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and demand they publish this woman’s name and address as a potential gun welding manic
