#rsrh A heartwarming exercise in applied civil rights in Oklahoma.

Saw this via @SissyWillis: apparently, a teen mom (and widow) in Oklahoma had two guys breaking in her house (complete with hunting knife) where she and her three month old baby were; and when she called 911 to ask whether it was all right to shoot the intruders, 911 told her…

…no, relax, it’s Oklahoma.  They effectively told her “Clear downrange.”  To the terminal surprise of the guy with the knife.  The cops are calling it justified, which merely demonstrates that sometimes you really do have to say things that everybody already knows.

    I like the fact that she grabbed a shotgun AND a pistol.

  • Rob Crawford says:

    I’m a little disappointed she had to call 911. But, then, people generally aren’t aware of what “Castle Doctrine” laws mean and how their state applies them.

  • jetty says:

    I agree with Rob. Liberals have so muddied this issue that many people don’t know if they can defend themselves in their own homes.

  • Skip says:


    I love a story with a happy ending.

  • BCochran1981 says:

    LOVE this story. My favorite part is how in control she seems to be. Grab the shotgun, call 911, grab the pistol, give the baby a bottle.

  • HeartbreakRidge says:

    calling 911 has the benefit of having matters recorded, which may come in handy in proving things more than just going by after-the-fact accounts.

  • Darin H says:

    I know it’s early, but she’s a frontrunner for Mother of the Year already.

  • Cameron says:

    It’s a heartwarming story that should be made into a holiday special.

  • DaveP. says:

    Score one for the good guys…

  • BCochran1981 says:

    My wife says she watched a news report about it. The girl is an 18 year old, recently widowed mother of a 3 month old. She said they played the 911 tape it was absolutely uncanny how calm and in control she was. Hey, feminazis? THAT is the true empowerment of women. Take notes.
