Washington Mother Shoots Home Intruder To Save Children On Thanksgiving

Firstly, good for her. it appears she only shot him once, which is a pity - all 6 bullets should have been used. Secondly, in capturing a dangerous criminal, the state should have paid for the bullet.....

Compare with ( and I don't have the link) the case last week of the sentencing of four Polish guys who forced their way into a house in London, severely beat the owner such that he may lose sight in one eye, tied his wife with duct tape to a chair and demanded money. Fortunately, his daughter and her boy friend were able to lock themselves in her bedroom and called the police. Being a fluffy minded liberal, I would like them to have had the capability of shooting all four of the perps, who had, what is to my mind, derisory sentences - nothing less than a minimum of 50 years is, to my mind, called for.
