    Exclamation Home invasion ends badly for badguy

    Two burglars forced their way into the Lynn Haven, Fla. home of Melissa Galarza. Once inside, the men assaulted Galarza by throwing her to the ground and punching her in the face, all while demanding money. On the ground, Galarza reached for her gun on the bottom shelf of her coffee table. Galarza pointed the gun at her attackers, undeterred, the men charged her. Galarza fired at the attackers, striking one in the abdomen, and causing both to flee.

    The wounded attacker was discovered to have sought treatment at a local hospital, but left before police could bring him into custody. (NWF Daily News, Fort Walton Beach, Fla. 12/05/08)

    When someone points a gun as you, especially as you are attacking them, and you continue to advance on them, you deserve to be shot. Had it been me, they would have been shot a lot of times. And I doubt that would have been able to get very far.

    Did the hospital fix him up that quickly, or did he just leave as quickly as he came? That seems unwise, even if it's a relatively small caliber bullet.

    Then again, I guess he's no rocket scientist to begin with.

    Good for the lady who was attacked. I hope the BG just crawled off to succumb to his wound!

    I wonder what security was doing while he was getting fixed up. Seems to me that someone should have sat on him until the PD got there...at least they have his DNA.
