48. right, well I was finally bored enough to "watch" them

"Watching", of course, consists, in the first instance, of looking at a bunch of thoroughly icky verbal propaganda, and in the second, of a hokey enactment (I don't say re-enactment, because it is plainly not an honest representation of the event).

So the first one: "you can hear her very real fear filled call." No, I can't. I hear several minutes of her quite calmly conversing with the 911 operator. Very calmly, and with no indication of any fear at all, to my ear. It seems that the woman knows quite well who the individual is, and I'm never sure why all the retailing of this tale never includes the sort of details that would provide some context for this incident.

I'm having a hard time telling exactly when she fired at the other individual, but it seems to be at the precise moment she starts yelling at him.

Evidently the police/judicial response to the earlier problems was inadequate. Isn't that kind of a problem? Are gun militants everywhere joining with women's advocates and anybody else handy to demand reforms in how problems of this sort are addressed by police and the courts? Not seeing it, myself.

Also not seeing any reason to believe that the woman in question would have been killed or seriously injured before the police arrived if she had not killed the man who broke into her home ...
