Woman Repels Home Invader, Protects Children


by Sharon Rondeau

Michael Ali Slater is the accused home invader of a Loganville, GA home. Slater was wounded by a shotgun held by a woman who was protecting herself and her children from harm.

(Jan. 6, 2013) — A Georgia woman disabled an intruder who broke down her front door and found her with her children hiding in a closet with a loaded gun as she waited for a response to a 911 call made by her husband, who was not at home at the time.

The invader reportedly “rummaged” through the family’s possessions in various parts of the house before finding the woman and her daughters in their hiding place.

After the woman wounded him with five shots, the perpetrator reportedly fell to the floor and started crying.  The woman and her children fled to a neighbor’s house, after which the invader exited the house and operated a motor vehicle for a short distance, where he collapsed.

The invader has a long arrest record since 2008 and had been released from jail after being convicted of “simple battery and violating probation.”  The woman’s husband called his wife “a hero” and “a responsible gun owner.”  “Her life was saved, and our kids’ lives were saved,” the husband said.

On Friday, former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords visited with several families affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy at their invitation to discuss gun control.  As public schools are “gun-free zones” by congressional statute, no one at the school had a weapon to counteract the attack perpetrated by a 20-year-old man identified as Adam Lanza of Newtown.

Those who blame guns for the deaths of the children are advocating for tighter federal restrictions on firearms and ammunition purchases, while some who believe that guns in the right hands used for self-defense can save lives have favored placing armed guards in schools to prevent further atrocities from occurring.

In 2007, a home invasion in Cheshire, CT ended quite differently than the Georgia woman’s ordeal.  The lone survivor, Dr. William Petit, was unarmed.  The perpetrators were given the death penalty, which the Connecticut legislature repealed last year.  Petit has recently remarried.

Like Adam Lanza, Joshua Komisarjevsky was reported to have suffered from emotional problems.

Since the Sandy Hook shooting, Obama and Biden have stated that gun control legislation is a high priority for their regime, and California Sen. Dianne Feinstein has already prepared a proposed bill.  Hundreds of Mexicans and at least one American died after Eric Holder’s Justice Department operated “Fast & Furious,” a gunrunning program which allowed American firearms to be transferred to known criminals, allegedly to trace the activity of drug cartels.  Some believe that Holder and Obama wished to turn public sentiment against the Second Amendment, which declares that “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Others have saved lives and defended their homes and families since Sandy Hook because they had a legal firearm in their possession, but the incidents have not been widely reported by the media giants.  Following Newtown, Hollywood actors, including Ellen DeGeneres and Jennifer Aniston, produced a video calling for gun control by “demanding a plan.”

The video depicts gun violence as it is often seen on cable television shows during hours while children could be watching.

    I agree.
    Our so called “justice system” is a money making machine for the big business of crime, but who, or what, is responsible, the nitwit who commits the crime or the nitwits who allow the crime to happen in the first place?
    We have a “revolving door” criminal policy: the “justice” system makes money for every person arrested and incarcerated, so it follows that the more crime that is committed, the more money is earmarked for “law enforcement”. Repeated offenders are sought after, which is why child molesters and rapists serve such short sentences: the defense attorneys, the judges, guards, prison food venders, and so on, want crimes repeated, I mean, if you put away all the bad guys, maybe we’d cut funding for law enforcement, lay-off cops, lawyers be out of work, professors of Jurisprudence would have to leave the sheltered confines of academia and face the real world.
    The crying shame of it all is that the criminals target the wrong people: wouldn’t it be something if all future crime be towards people who really had a hand at not giving a hoot about solving the crime problem in the first place: politicians and members of the court, and our “at the bottom” public education farce, which is another topic which deserves the same disdain as “law enforcement”.
    No wonder our young people have no respect for anything these days; No wonder why people commit crimes, heck, everybody else is, and getting away with it, and get handsomely rewarded at the same time.
    Just look at Obama, a usurper milking the American taxpayer, Eric Holder, the Attorney General, failing to uphold the law by allowing someone (Obama/Soetoro) to use a stolen Social Security number. It’s called identity theft, People. If I put false information on my Selective Service Registration card, I’d be in jail, but not Obama.
    Crimes being committed in broad daylight and our incompetent members of the court sit idly by while collected inflated paychecks and inflated pensions.
    The Second Amendment has NOTHING TO DO WITH DEER HUNTING.

    Hollywood + Feinstein + Congress = HYPOCRISY to the nth degree

    Many criminals are rehabilitated but too many keep returning to a life of crime for many reasons. Another sad story but at least the mother tried to protect her children.

    BRAVO to this courageous Georgia woman who stood up against her attacker. Obviously that’s a big plus for good people owning guns. If the Democrats have to ban something, let it be hammers, because more people are killed each year by hammers than by guns. If you consider yourself of sound mind – reason this out… What’s the difference between a home invasion such as this compared to a country invasion by Usurper – barry soetoro and his un-patriotic co-conspirator. I am personally of sound mind and see NO DIFFERENCE whatsoever. How are you doing with this ?????
