Oklahoma has the right idea

http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/20...illed-intruder

Quote:
Authorities don't plan to file charges against an 18-year-old Oklahoma widow who fatally shot a New Year's Eve intruder at her house while she had a 911 dispatcher on the phone.

However, the intruder's alleged accomplice has been charged with murder in connection with the death.

Sarah McKinley was in her mobile home with her 3-month-old son on New Year's Eve in Blanchard, Okla., when Justin Martin, 24, broke in with a large hunting knife, NBC station KFOR reported.

When she asked if she was allowed to shoot the intruder if he broke through the door, a 911 operator told her, "Well, you have to do whatever you can do to protect yourself ... I can't tell you that you can do that but you do what you have to do to protect your baby."

Oklahoma law allows the use of deadly force against intruders, and prosecutors said McKinley clearly acted in self-defense. According to court documents, Martin was holding a knife when he died.

"Our initial review of the case doesn't indicate she violated the law in any way," Assistant District Attorney James Walters told The Oklahoman newspaper.

Prosecutors have charged his alleged accomplice, 29-year-old Dustin Louis Stewart, with first-degree murder. According to authorities, Stewart was with Martin but ran away from McKinley's home after hearing the gunshots.

"When you're engaged in a crime such as first-degree burglary and a death results from the events of that crime, you're subject to prosecution for it," Walters said.

Stewart was arraigned Wednesday and was being held in the Grady County jail. A bond hearing was set for Thursday. His attorney, Stephen Buzin, did not immediately respond to a message left at his office Wednesday night.

According to court documents, Martin and Stewart might have been looking for prescription drugs used by McKinley's husband Kenneth, 58, who died on Christmas Day after being hospitalized with complications from lung cancer.

McKinley said it took the men about 20 minutes to get through her door, which she had barricaded with a couch.

I heard the 911 tapes this morning
why cant the dispatcher just say - yes, you can defend yourself by shooting him. Theyre so careful to say that you have the right to defend your baby, do what you have to do, etc etc.

Im glad she did what she did. Bastard, breaking in a house with a young mother and a 3 month old baby.

while I can't condone legal child molestation, I do condone using lethal force to protect yourself and your family.

nice job on scoring a smart 18 year old! I like how she barricaded the door.
BTW,

So the cops didn't show up within that duration of time.
When seconds count, the police are only half an hour away.

Huh? You're saying the woman's baby is trash?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
