It was dangerous for her to shoot him but she was fearing for her life as this guy rushed her. What would you do? Run? Defend yourself? I say good for her. Don't let the whackos getcha.

From what I have read so far, I support her actions.
I am not saying that spitting on someone means they have the right to shoot you. But I see a woman on a bus full of people, being left to deal with a guy on her own that is insulting her, following her, and assaulting her. While I don't know the size, strength, etc of this woman in particular....I do feel the average woman would have to use a gun to defender herself in this situation. So I say good for her.

I wasn't there so I don't know what happen, but I am not so sure I am comfortable with the fact this woman had a gun on a Metro Bus.

"she was fearing"
But, she was WRONG. He had no weapon, no gun, no knife. He never touched her. As someone said, on the Seattle Times forum, "I doubt she would have provoked him or talked to him at all on the bus, had she not had a gun". She almost baited him.
You leave mentally ill people alone, if she had done that, nothing would have happened. He was an agitated person and she pushed him.
So she was wrong, he was no threat to her life. She messed up, she shot him. That is exactly why we don't want people running around with guns. What you 'think' or 'fear' might not be reality, as in this case.
This is America, you don't get to shoot someone and almost kill them, cause they scared you.
