Be careful in your threats to shoot to kill because in S.C. you can only shoot someone when your life is in danger. It`s the law ! You can hold them at gun point until the police gets their. You know how these shady attorneys are, they will turn everything around and make you the bad guy. I guess you could bust them up side the head a couple times before the cops come ? lol

I am the one that was interviewed on tv. Thanks to everyone that has made such nice comments about me and my family. To all of you that are making nasty comments, you need to walk a mile in the shoes of the people around me that have lost everything that they have worked all of there lives to earn. My neighbors who I was defending the husband was in Iraq fighting for our country and his family was defenseless. He and his family deserve to know that there property is safe. As for the diet comment that was so rude, I am on chemo and have a pump on to recieve my chemo, so even if I need to diet, you need to deal with what we as a community are dealing with and maybe offer some assistance to these families instead of writting nasty comments and offer prayers to all of us in SC that are dealing with this awful tradgedy.

I would do the same thing if it were my home needing to be protected from crazy looters. I'd shoot them right between the eyes, then call the cops and tell them to send a body bag.

Funny how the shotgun is larger than the video's in the image.. almost as if photoshopped.. I know reputable photographer journalists don't practice this, so I must be incorrect... right?

It's a shame when something like this happens and you have to worry about thugs coming out of the woodwork to try and take the things others have worked so hard for.

IS it really LEGAL to shoot a theft on someone esle's property?
What about the situation a couple of weeks ago?
Thanks in Advance for enlightening me......
Cops usually issue shoot on sight orders for looters, and rightfully so. I hope they can shoot the scum. Maybe take a pot shot a lawyer or two while they're at it.

looters should be shot on site and buried with the debris in the landfill. the scums that charge $50 for plywood and $5 for a bag of ice should also be shot!!!!!!

I am a resident of the town of Elgin and my family was extremely lucky as the tornado stopped about a mile and a half from my property... It is devistating to see the damage and to know the hurt and anguish these people are dealing with. One minute they are just living their lives and the next - it is all gone.

My family actually evacuated our house because yes it is a mobile home - and no - we are not white trash... the idiot that wrote the comment earlier - not everyone who lives in a mobile home is what you would consider white trash... Let's see, I graduated from high school, attended college, and obtained a Master's Degree... so why would I live in a mobile home? This is the house I grew up in and it is paid for on 5+ acres of land... why go in more debt????

So to all the residents of Elgin and to the Shealy family - hold your head up high - Elgin will rebound - we will rebuild our community... Tina - I am wishing you the best of luck with your treatments and your family is in our prayers... Stay strong...

If you don't belong in Elgin - then stay out of Elgin.

Obviously the reporter doesnt know firearm types. Its a shot gun not a rifle.

I don't blame Ms. Shealy a bit. I would do the very same if i were in the same circumstance. Athough I wouldnt shoot to kill. I'd aim to take off a hand or obliviate a knee cap.

You are scum, looking to reap your entitlements from hard working people you are not worthy to insult and who you think owe you something for slavery! You take your cue, like all your type has done since Reconstruction, from the hucksters and other confidence men who came down here with carpet bags from areas like the Five Points in New York city. You throw your money and your votes to the first bleeding heart liar who'll tell you you deserve these entitlements without earning them.
Just by your own stupid way of acting we'll run into each other one day. At that time I'll be "your huckleberry"!!
