A Heart Warming Story Of An Armed Mother's Love

 This past Friday, a Virginia mother, protecting herself and her two daughters, fired two shots at a New Zealand man who had thrown a landscaping stone through their front door. He allegedly had traveled from New Zealand to Australia to Los Angeles to Washington, DC by air - then taken a bus to Richmond and allegedly claimed he had hitchhiked 30 miles to get to their house. Why? Apparently because he wanted to see the woman's 14 year old daughter. The man had been in contact with the daughter on the Internet for an extended period but the contact had been broken off previously and he reportedly had been told the girl no longer wished to communicate with him. (More at the source.)

Well, maybe he wanted to do a bit more than see her. It was reported that when police arrived they found he was in possession of a knife, duct tape and pepper spray - all purchased once he was in the USA. What on earth do you think he might have done with that had the mother not armed herself and shot him after he threw that landscaping stone though their front door essentially destroying the mostly glass door.

The man has reportedly not yet been charged but my guess is that once he is out of the hospital he will be brought to justice. Oh, did I forget to mention - mama shot him in the neck. Maybe, if the bullet(s) or bone fragments hit the spinal cord, he will wind up paralyzed and never again able to commit such an alleged act.

It truly warms the cockles of my heart to read stories like this.

All the best,
