That is scary! Doesn't say anything about a robbery so was he there just to take her out? Seems as though that was his main goal.

It might be clever if the state government and the local governments would reduce their emphasis on speeding and parking tickets, and instead, make a strong effort to rid the state of dangerous, deadly criminals.

But, we cannot expect people in government to be clever.

In the area this happened in, it's a very very low priority.

Good thing the Waynesboro police still investigate crimes , unlike the c'ville police who only pursue noise ordinance violators. I hope they catch this guy soon and put him away for a long time.

We are forced to live with crack heads and all the rest cause most cops are out writing tickets, ain't no money in fighting real crime, and writing tickets is safer too.

What? "an innocent victim caught up in drug related violence"? What are they saying? Was she dealing drugs? Were there drugs in the house? Was the perpetrator on drugs? How do the neighbors know this and not who the offender was? Why does this station continue to write these ridiculously vague stories and not ask the questions stated Here? Why do I care?...and more importantly why do I continue to post here pointing out the insanely obvious? I'm tired. Good night.

No, it’s not the Police; it is the Judges and Politicians. The police have a VERY frustrating job of risking their lives to catch a perp only to have a Judge turn him loose or slap the perp on the wrist, due to overcrowding, etc., and that means the perp is out again. Well, make these people earn their $45,000 of bed-n-board to the tax payers by having them build roads and break up rocks, etc. At the very least they should be working in a taxpayer’s field or small yard. It is proven in Game and Inland Fisheries that "Catch and Release" only increases the population.
It's too bad the woman didn't believe in firearms training and arming herself against a killer like this, but that is the mostly the Politician's and local government's fault whom demonizes self-defense via firearms.

The suspect was looking for a particular person. It could be the woman. Why kick in a door when you don't know what lies beyond it, how many occupants are in there, or whether they are armed. He may have gone to the wrong address & lucked out no one was there except a lone woman.I hope she applies for a permit now. Imagine if these liberal pukes in office get their way & disarm the citizens, the crime rate would rise astronomically. Long live the 2nd amendment. I'm glad the woman is all right too. The tempestuous sea of liberty is never without a wave.

Another good reason that every homeowner should be armed to protect themselves!

Charlottesville City Clowncil and the mayor do not allow the cops to do their jobs. Instead they are told to look the other way.

How many of you actually carry when you go to the bathroom? Don't get me wrong, I'm pro gun and even carry concealed, but unless I'm in a public restroom and already have my gun on me, I usually don't have my gun in my bathroom at home. Maybe I should?!?

Yes you should. Houses in USA are ridculously easy to kick doors in or enter through windows.
A big dog is a deterient though at least may buy u time to grab a gun. Look at houses in Argentina after thier financial collapse every window has bars on it and the doors are steel slabs with multipoint locks. If they dont have that they r a thief magnet.
Google ferfal argentina to learn about a guy lived through it.

I do! I have two guns within reach as I am typing this while sitting in my recliner and watching TV. If you don't have anything in reach that you can use to defend against a home invasion, you're going to be at a disadvantage before anything even happens.

As far as cops preferring to write tickets versus going after crackheads - this is the typical ignorant belief that those who have never done a traffic stop likes to believe. Traffic stops are one of the most dangerous activities that Law Enforcement Officers have to regularly perform. Do you really think that Patrol Officers like to have to get out of their nice, warm cars during a cold rainstorm just to write a ticket?

The fact is a huge percentage of wanted felons are caught because of a traffic stop. Lee Malvo (the "DC Sniper") was caught because he received a ticket just after he shot that innocent grade school student near Annapolis.

Precisely the reason I'm always armed... always. Even in my house I keep one in my pocket. There's a pistol on my night stand and 12 ga pump by my bed. Anyone dumb enough to break through my front door will be leaving in a bag.

I do. I put my Sig P938 in my pocket holster the moment I put my pants on in the morning.
