Chicago's Southeast Side

Neighbors said an elderly woman was fed up with constant harassment from a 12-year-old boy, so she took a gun and shot the child after he and his friends threw bricks into her home. Now, the boy is charged with a crime, while the 68-year-old woman is not.

All I have to say is good for her. I am a bit surprised the city of Chicago hasn't tossed her in jail and sainted the little psyco

A BB at 1100 FPS would have taught the little pri.....miscreant... a lesson....

I like how the one guy says that since she didn't kill him, she clearly wasn't defending herself. Much like the whole not taking a gun to a robbery to defend himself.

As much as I can understand this woman's frustration and fear, a broken window is not a good enough reason to potentially kill a 12 year old
What if the woman was at the window and was struck in the head with the brick and died? Then what? Put the kid in juvee for a few years?

One thing is for sure, that kid won't be throwing bricks anymore.

I love this comment: "If you're directly shooting and she's running, you were trained to kill him, so she would have killed them," said neighbor Jacyrha Cahn. "She was defending herself? I'm just saying, was she defending herself? No."

Uhh.... where does that pass as cognitive thought, or cognitive speech for that matter?

So Capt...if some 12 year old breaks your window, steals from your garage, lights your garbage on fire, you will gun them down?
Stupid question. The brat would be fighting off three dogs and a pissed off wife. No need for me to step in.
