Oh wow. What an amazing woman. I applaud her for doing what she had to do. My question is she was on the phone for 20 minutes with 911 while 2 men tried to break into her home, where were the police? Why did it take so long for them to get there?

I hope 2012 brings her good things. Obviously other than her sweet son there wasn’t much joy in 2011.

I would have done the same thing and not thought twice about it! I am glad I live in a state with the castle law becuase I would not hesitate to pull a gun on someone that was threatening my family.

I can’t believe this girl is 18 and has already married, had a baby, dealt with cancer, become a widow, and killed a man. Talk about a hard life!

That is the weirdest thing I have heard. And I hope never to have to go through that myself.

Why were the intruders trying to steal the medication? That’s the ‘weird’ part….

She did what she needed to do to protect herself and her family, I’m glad that she had a way to effectively defend herself, the story could have been very different if she didn’t.

When seconds matter, the police are minutes away.

Wow! I feel so bad for her, having to be in that situation. I am glad that she isn’t getting charged or anything! That is awesome! She did what she had to do and I wouldn’t have done any differently.

@Sasha2011: He probably has some sort of opiate based pain pills…
