An Oklahoma mom did what most of us only dream of doing…she shot an intruder while defending her home. On New Year’s Eve, 18-year-old Sarah Dawn McKinley, was sitting alone at home with her baby when she heard a noise. This is when she noticed two home invader’s trying break in, so she quickly picked up a pistol and called 911.
The victim asked the operator, “Can I shoot the intruder” and received a surprising answer, “Well, you have to do whatever you can do to protect yourself“.
That is all the young victim needed to hear, she shot the 24-year old burglar, Martin Stewart, and killed him with a single bullet. His accomplice, Dustin Lewis Stewart, fled the scene but later turned himself in.
After losing her husband to cancer on Christmas Day, the women chose to save her 3-month-old baby. It’s a good thing she lived in Oklahoma, because it is one of the few states that believes it’s your right to protect your home. I say good for her! Criminals disgust me.
Mckinley is everyone’s hero right now, with the increase in violence everywhere, the “old west” mentality just may be the thing of the future. She will not face any charges because she acted in self-defense, and many believe she did the right thing.
If you are willing to steal from others…you better be willing to lose your life. Hopefully this will cause criminals to think twice, before deciding to break into another persons home.
What do you think? Would you shoot someone to save the life of you and your family?
