Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

A firearms is an equalizer. It allows a weaker person to fight back against a stronger attacker. Tom Knighton has such a case

It seems the woman, while riding a motorcycle, somehow angered 60-year-old Bruce Jones over how she was riding the bike. Then, things got ugly.

The incident took place Feb. 8 in Milton, and the woman, who had been on a motorcycle, said she acted in self-defense when she shot 60-year-old Bruce Jones to death.

The Prosecutor’s Office said that it could not prove that she didn’t act in self-defense because of the evidence in the case.

Witnesses said Jones became upset with how the woman was riding her motorcycle on I-5. He boxed her in, and she couldn’t drive away.

He got out of his vehicle and aggressively approached her on the shoulder of I-5, the Prosecutor’s Office says witnesses report.

The Prosecutor’s Office says Jones initiated the fight.

While it sounds like a heck of a brawl, it appears Jones threw the woman to the ground and started to get on top of her. That’s when she shot him in the chest.

I can’t say that I’m surprised by that. Not only would that be a terrifying predicament for any woman–after all, how many rapes are portrayed just like that?–but would be scary for anyone in general. That was the same position Trayvon Martin was in when he began pounding George Zimmerman’s head into the concrete sidewalk. It sounds like some definite risk to life.

    The attacker had an immature approach to problem solving, looks like. And he bullied the wrong victim.
    I will be very impressed if she used a .45.
