No one needs a gun. Waiting periods are a good thing. When seconds count, the Police are just minutes away. http://www.ksdk.com/news/news_articl...storyid=138185 Woman Shoots Intruder, And It's Recorded On 911 Call Created: 1/11/2008 1:24:05 PM Last updated: 1/11/2008 2:09:34 PM HAMMOND, IN -- An Indiana woman shoots and kills an intruder breaking into her home, and it's all caught on tape by the 911 call she was making at the time. It turns out the man had been stalking her and she bought the gun for protection. Advertisement The woman, who lives in a townhouse, had been complaining about her former boyfriend for months. She had filed repeated complaints, said he slashed her tires and engaged in a confrontation at a Legion Hall. She said that he warned her it wasn't not over yet. November 12th, the woman called Hammond police saying he was in her yard trying to get in. CALLER: "I've been having a lot of problems with him... Please." DISPATCHER: "Ok, they're on their way...Did he come in a car?" CALLER: "I don't know... He's trying to get in my back door." As the call continues, the woman pleads with police to hurry as a Hammond dispatcher stays on the line assuring her that officers are on their way. DISPATCHER: "OK, Can you get to a room with a lock on it?" CALLER: "Yes I can." DISPATCHER: "OK, I'm going to tell you when it's okay to come out, okay?" The woman takes refuge in an upstairs bedroom, then eventually in a closet. CALLER: "He broke through the window again...." DISPATCHER: "OK, is he in the house?" CALLER: "Yes, I think he is." Two minutes into the call she tells them she is armed. DISPATCHER: "Does he normally carry weapons at all?" CALLER: "I got one today." DISPATCHER: "You got one what?" CALLER: "I got a weapon today." DISPATCHER: "OK, A gun? You have it... Is it in the room with you?" The dispatcher informs the arriving officers that the woman is armed; then, about five minutes after the call began, this final exchange: CALLER: "He's at the door now." DISPATCHER: "He's turning the door knob.. okay.. Is that him I hear?" CALLER: "Yeah." DISPATCHER: "Is there anything you can put.." CALLER: "What are you doing??? "STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT!".. DISPATCHER: "Okay.. he's in with her!" CALLER CONTINUES: "STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT! Stop it.. (begging) Please stop it..." The woman then shot the man. Police said she will not face charges, because she acted in self defense.
