good thing they didn't get a look at his skin color. I'll just keep a lookout for all males in trucks.

Woman hiding with kids shoots intruder. "A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday. The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar. But the man eventually found the family. "The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he's staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver," Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh. The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved. "She's standing over him, and she realizes she's fired all six rounds. And the guy's telling her to quit shooting," Chapman said." REAL TRUE GUN CONTROL! This is why we cannot disarm law abiding Americans. FAR too many of these people allowed on our streets to create more victims. God made man, Colt made them equal.

Honestly, if you are looking for accurate, unbiased news reporting don't waste your time reading the Patch. I also read that a 'skinny' man robbed an Owings Mills liquor store. Now there is a great description. I'm surprised they aren't afraid of offending skinny people.
