She did what she had to do to protect herself and her child, the suspect put his life on the line when he kicked her door in and entered her home, she had every right to defend her home and her family.

Bob, I totally agree! If more people would take this stance the thieves might think before they did this.

She is obviously a good shot. Was it a head shot? Shotgun or pistol used? If shotgun, was it a deer slug or buckshot? Quick kill or did the intruder have a few seconds to ponder his thoughts until life faded away.

She most certainly did do the correct thing in shooting him, too bad the second one got away.
But happy to know he will be charged w/ his thug buddy's death.

God only knows what she, her infant would have had to suffer w/ these two thug's had she not have been brave enough to pull the trigger.
I pray she'll get tons of support.
Kudos to this young mother.

Shame these punks put her through this. According to news she has a 3 mos child and her husband just died of Cancer on Christmas day. Glad she and her child are okay.

what did these punks put her through? she looked pretty damned happy while she was posing with a gun for the yahoo pictures. i am not one to say she didnt do the right thing but taking someones life in any form for any reason should not be glamourized.

21 min. of fear, the one dude had a knife cluched in his hand when they found him slumped om HER couch. No,no one should never take another's life just for their pleasure..but in this case, I feel she had no other choice, as I'm pretty sure the punks didn't bring their knife to spread butter.
She WAS in her home, they Forced her door in..So therefore, she was in danger as well as her infant. I myself would have taken the same steps to save my child, myself.

Well I would be happy to, I mean for Christ sake, the girl is 18, new baby, and just lost her husband to cancer. So you damn right I would be happy if I was her too, just to know that I gave not only myself, but my child other day to live. Well done girl!

The next sorry bastard might think twice do to the glamourization, as you put it. All I can say is good riddance to bad rubbish.
