    Default "I don't want to have to kill this man, but I'll kill him graveyard dead, ma'am."

    As any gun owner knows, we never want to be in this life or death situation. She made, however hard it most certainly was, the absolute right decision. She is my hero.



    (CBS) Oklahoma resident Donna Jackson faced a life or death situation when an intruder tried to break into her rural-area home last Friday.

    Home alone, but armed with a shotgun, 57-year-old Jackson called 911 and begged for help, but police couldnt get there before the man was able to break through a glass door with a chair and patio table.

    Jackson, who stayed on the phone with the 911 dispatcher, can be heard in the call saying, "I don't want to have to kill this man, but I'll kill him graveyard dead, ma'am."

    When the intruder broke through the door, Jackson dropped the phone. A minute later, Jackson was forced to shoot, and the suspect, Billy Riley, 53, was killed. According to the local district attorney's office, Jackson won't be charged with a crime. During the call, the 911 operator told Jackson it was legal for her to defend her home.

    Well, she rolled up and did what she needed to do. She's salt.

    I really want to hear from the idiots that thank she was in the wrong. And I know there are some here reading this that think so. She had ZERO options at that point. Kill or be killed. Very simple. God bless her. Out.

    My heart aches for her. She was terrified and was in a position no woman should have to face. I agree Track. She did what she had to do.

    Cleaning out the gene pool. Good for her and imo she did nothing wrong. She defended her home and her well-being. I would have done the same thing...

    The arguments I've heard - and none said that she did "wrong", or that she SHOULD have done any of the following, just that if she really didn't want to kill him, she could have:

    1. Yelled out that she has a gun, even fired a warning shot
    2. While he was going in the back door, go out the front door.
    3. Follow advice and lock herself in the bathroom - shoot if he tries to get in there.

    Again, don't make the assumption that I advance any of these arguments - yes, they were available to her, but she had every right to do what she did. Good for her.

    I have a problem with the proliferation of hand guns/assault weapons, I don't think they need to be out in the public domain, and would have no qualms about banning them. I do not have a problem with people owning shot guns/hunting rifles, which, as you saw, accomplished what she needed to do in defending herself and her home.

    Her solution was correct. We probably need more like her.

    Wrong! What we need to do is find a way to keep illegal guns off the streets. Far more crime is committed with illegal guns than with guns that are legal.

    Before Lode gets in here, and WWIII starts....LOL...allow me to give an LEO opinion.

    I understand you don't neccessarily push them, but let me offer up flaws to them.

    To go through your 3 suggestion, in order. As someone with LEO training, these are suggestions by people that THINK they have the right answers, but, in practicality, they hardly ever work:

    1. In her own home, she is NOT required to announce she has a gun. That's the risk you take if you're dumb enough to break in to a house. There's a 50/50 chance there's a gun, and it's aimed at you. This dumbass gambled and lost.

    2. It's her home, she has the right to defend it. There's no guarrantee she could've gotten out of the house. To compound the guy breaking in, the perp used an object to break the window out, and upped the ante'. It went from a simple B & E, to Aggravated B & E. Whatever object he used is considered a weapon at that point. According to the law, she then has the right to use that force neccessary to alleviate the threat. Up to, and including, lethal force. She's not just protecting her home, she's protecting her person.

    3. Locking yourself in the bathroom allows no room for error. If he get's the weapon away from her, she's dead. I'd rather her have free roam of her house to leave herself an out, or room to manuever. It also allows her to have the ability to sight ther perp and have an accurate shot, or at the very least, escape. Being locked in the bathroom gives her no wiggle room.

    I agree, to a certain extent, of your opinion of banning weapons. Assault weapons, I have no problem having restrictions on. Handguns, I have a HUGE problem banning them. With states having C & C laws, you can't easily conceal a rifle or shotgun LEGALLY. The law is pretty clear on sawed-off varieties...LOL

    i don't think that she needed to kill the intruder but i have little sympathy for the dead guy. Don't break into her house and you're alive dude.
