- Burglar was shot 5 times during attempted break-in – photo from previous arrest
Paul Ali Slater, a man who has already been to prison 6 times according to online police records, picked the wrong Georgia house to break into. A mother and her two children were inside, and she did not hesitate to shoot him 5 times in the neck and face.
Below is a video report that will provide all the necessary details.
The woman, who has asked the press not to reveal her identity, freaked out when she heard someone was breaking into her house. She called her husband, summoned her kids and did as she was instructed.
First, she and the kids hid in a crawlspace in the office. When the intruder found them, she shot him with a revolver, hitting him 5 times in the face and neck.
She urged the intruder not to get up (he was still conscious) while she fled to safety to a neighbor’s house. Slater still had it in him to get in his car and drive away, but crashed farther up the road and was apprehended by police.
The woman’s husband says she’s a hero for saving her and the kids’ lives.
He got what was coming to him, what prison obviously didn't teach him--you can't go around breaking the law and then get just a slap on the wrist, a place to sleep and three meals a day. This time he got the punishment he truly deserved.
I am happy the mother had a weapon to defend herself in this very scary situation and equally unhappy that the intruder lived. Now taxpayers can nurse him back to health and pay for his incarceration. However, the
weapon was not an AKA assault weapon that the NRA is so enamored of as a gun that shouldn't be banned.
I don't know of any incidents where one was used to protect one's property. They aren't necessary , and if banned, even the criminals would have more difficulty possessing one.
YES!! Absolutely, yes! Mom did the right thing. In her house, for protection of her kids, the right thing! I am normally a liberal, almost a pacifist, but in circumstances like this, I'd also put 5 or 6 in his head.
America is said to be one of the safest countries in the world with all the latest technologies ,surveillance etc .most of the people has good life etc so what is the point in allowing people to buy gun for thier own safety like groceries so as to shoot innocent people ,kids etc.some people for some their own stupid reasons to make money out of cold blood is simply fostering this craziness.
What she did is why our founding fathers put the "keep and bear arms in our Constitution" if you want to, it's better that the general public doesn't know who does and who don't so those who don't want to aren't targeted for attack and make the bad guys have to pause and ask themselves if they really want to take a chance and come up against someone who is willing to defend themselves and their property. This guy should never get out of jail as 8 prior arrests have not taught him anything. Like her husband, I'm proud of her for doing what every honest, law abiding citizen should be able to do, defend themselves. There are more than enough gun law on the books to control illegal guns, but our government won't or can't enforce all these laws now. So adding "more" gun laws is just the government's way of taking freedoms form honest people who are already obeying the laws that are already on the books. Government just do the job with "all" the tools you already have or resign and let someone else do it that can. While I'm here I would like to post the following warning: The Presidential Executive Orders and the "PATRIOT ACT" are two of the types of laws that Hitler used to strip constitutional freedoms from the German people prior WW2. Beware, the fox is already in our henhouse!
She should have killed him. Now the State of Georgia is going to have to pay for his hospital and medical treatment and his incarceration until he is again released from prison to terrorize yet another family.
this woman is great she sets an examp;e of how we should all act to protect our loved ones. someone like this intruder should not be on the streets with descent people this is exactly how we need to deal with this kind of trash.
This is why every home in America should be armed. What would have happened to this family if it wasn't for a mom and wife armed with a hand gun, she may have been raped by this this piece of garbage in front of her children...good shootin, he is lucky to be alive
