Seriously? It Was Okay For A Woman To Protect Herself And Her Baby?

Well, not here in Canada, but maybe we should be looking at a form of Castle Doctrine here.

The H/T from the comments:


Mike from Saskatoon
This is ludicrous.  Canada needs a Castle Doctrine.  We need to drop this dangerous and ignorant situation where the government treats people defending themselves and their property as criminals.

The US has many problems, but this is one area where they got it right.  A prime example would be the 18 year old mother in Oklahoma who faced a home invasion on Dec 31 2011.  She was recently widowed and had a 3 month old at home, and two men tried to break into her home.  She barricaded the door & called 911, but for over 20 minutes the cops didn't show up.  She ended up having to shoot one of the criminals when he managed to break down the front door, killing him.

US reaction:  congratulate the woman, and charge the surviving criminal with murder.

Canadian reaction:  haul the woman to jail, charge her with murder, and hand her child over to strangers to raise.

No sane person can say our system is superior.
I'm thinking, is that a REAL story? So, I searched it out, and sure enough, it's true!

A young Oklahoma mother shot and killed an intruder to protect her 3-month-old baby on New Year's Eve, less than a week after the baby's father died of cancer.
Sarah McKinley says that a week earlier a man named Justin Martin dropped by on the day of her husband's funeral, claiming that he was a neighbor who wanted to say hello. The 18-year-old Oklahoma City area woman did not let him into her home that day.
On New Year's Eve Martin returned with another man, Dustin Stewart, and this time was armed with a 12-inch hunting knife. The two soon began trying to break into McKinley's home.
As one of the men was going from door to door outside her home trying to gain entry, McKinley called 911 and grabbed her 12-gauge shotgun.
McKinley told ABC News Oklahoma City affiliate KOCO that she quickly got her 12 gauge, went into her bedroom and got a pistol, put the bottle in the baby's mouth and called 911.
 Make sure you watch the video at that site, it will make you think about how our citizens in Canada are treated. Thankfully this guy had video too! If it would have been just his word against the criminals, the criminals would have won. Despite the taped evidence of criminals fire bombing his place.....

He is the one being charged with illegal storage of fire arms. That is how stupid Canadian law is. The guy under threat from three terrorists, is on trial. We need a form of the Castle doctrine:


Typical conditions that apply to some Castle Doctrine laws include[citation needed]:
  • An intruder must be making (or have made) an attempt to unlawfully or forcibly enter an occupied residence, business or vehicle.
  • The intruder must be acting illegally—the Castle Doctrine does not give the right to attack, for example, officers of the law acting in the course of their legal duties
  • The occupant(s) of the home must reasonably believe that the intruder intends to inflict serious bodily harm or death upon an occupant of the home
  • In some states, the occupant(s) of the home must reasonably believe that the intruder intends to commit some lesser felony, such as arson or burglary
  • The occupant(s) of the home must not have provoked or instigated an intrusion, or provoked or instigated an intruder to threaten or use deadly force
  • The occupant(s) of the home may be required to attempt to exit the house or otherwise retreat (this is called the "Duty to retreat" and most self-defense statutes referred to as examples of "Castle Doctrine" expressly state that the homeowner has no such duty)
In all cases, the occupant(s) of the home must be there legally, must not be fugitives from the law or aiding or abetting another person in being a fugitive from the law, and must not use force upon an officer of the law performing a legal duty
Another person leaving a comment stated it better than I could:

Incredible story.

Mr. Thompson did make several mistakes though and he deserves to pay.
1) He should have used a shotgun and left these bombers as a puddle on his lawn.
2) He is a white male (and therefore he has no rights).
3) He is not Indian like chiefie Spence of Attawapiskat so "Blame the victim" will not work.

I could go on with his multitude of faults...

It's clear that his proper course of action would have been to twiddle his thumbs in the corner saying "Our Father who art in Queens Park, Dalton be thy name..." as fire bombs rained down on himself and his property.

He still has a chance to redeem himself slightly though. If he were to self immolate on the steps of Queens Park to partially compensate society for his grievous crimes.

Throw the book at him I say!
As a female, I am supposed to shout "FIRE" if some predator is chasing me down the street. God forbid I have a gun to protect myself, and if I did happen to have a gun (yikes) it should be triple, double, double, locked up at home with the ammo for it at my Mom's house 8 blocks away.

Our laws are ridiculous. Mr. Thomson should have never been charged with anything, period. Unfortunately, our liberal attorney generals and police listen to Dalton and other political people and forget that their jobs are to protect, we the people, not we the politicians. Mr. Thomson has killed fewer people than a certain ex-attorney general in Ontario. 

Mr. Thomson now has to pay court and lawyer fees, while the criminals who fire bombed his place get court appointed lawyers, and they have not been charged with the most obvious crime they tried to commit, ATTEMPTED MURDER.

The main reason for the governments (on all levels) lack of response to this crime against citizens is that we have no property rights. The government reserves the right to take away anything from us, because they have the power. This is what we should be yelling about as freedom loving people.

Feminists Speak Out Against Honour Killings....

Okay, I lied, not one feminist that I know has voiced her opinion on the murders of 4 women by their family, because of "honour".

They should be marching on Parliament to tell all MP's that "honour" killings are a crime against all women. They have not, and they will not. They are hypocrites. Women's rights, as long as you don't step on any "middle eastern" male toes. I should add that "honour" killings are a cultural/tribal thing as much as a "religious" thing. All cultures are equal aren't they ladies? Right???? HA! Just what I thought, they are hiding behind their multicultural metrosexual males.

Why wouldn't they be supporting Tooba? She was obviously railroaded by her husband to commit the murders. Or don't they like her because she was what they would call a "breeder"?

"My body, my choice" as long as it doesn't mean that baby girls are being targeted for the "scrape". They are forced to embrace ALL abortions, for ANY reason because of they hypocrisy.  They refuse to admit that abortions kill human babies. Abort a baby at 40 weeks? Perfectly legal in Canada. They have a problem now that these same lack of laws allow female babies to be aborted just because they happen to not be what those of other cultures/tribes want... females!

It is a sad statement when women, who profess to be in support of all females, are reduced to defending the killing of females, be it in "honour" killings or selective abortions.

Friday Night Funnies: What I Owe My Mother!

Cough Syrup..........

The pharmacist walks into his store
to find a guy leaning heavily against a wall.

He asks the Newfie clerk:
"What's with that guy over there by the wall?"

The clerk responds:
"Well, he came in here this morning
to get something for his cough. 
I couldn't find the cough syrup,
so I gave him an entire bottle of Laxative."

The pharmacist yells:
"You idiot, you can't treat a cough
with a laxative!"

The Newfie clerk responds..................
“Of course you can! "

 "Look at him, he's afraid to cough".

The Older Crowd
A distraught senior citizen
phoned her doctor's office.
'Is it true,' she wanted to know,
'that the medication
you prescribed has to be taken
for the rest of my life?'
'Yes, I'm afraid so,' the doctor told her.
There was a moment of silence
before the senior lady replied,
I'm wondering, then,
just how serious is my condition
because this prescription is marked
'NO REFILLS'....'
---------------------------------------------------
An older gentleman was
on the operating table
awaiting surgery
and he insisted that his son,
a renowned surgeon,
perform the operation.
As he was about to get the anaesthesia,
he asked to speak to his son.
'Yes, Dad, what is it? '
'Don't be nervous, son;
do your best
and just remember,
if it doesn't go well,
if something happens to me,
your mother
is going to come and
live with you and your wife....'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Aging:
Eventually you will reach a point
when you stop lying about your age
and start bragging about it.
--------------------------------------------------------
The older we get,
the fewer things
seem worth waiting in line for.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Some people
try to turn back their odometers.
Not me!
I want people to know 'why'
I look this way.
I've traveled a long way
and some of the roads weren't paved..
-------------------------------------------------------------

When you are dissatisfied
and would like to go back to youth,
think of algebra.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

You know you are getting old when
everything either dries up or leaks.
------------------------------------------------------------
One of the many things
no one tells you about aging
is that it is such a nice change
from being young.
----------------------------------------------------------
Ah, being young is beautiful,
but being old is comfortable.
----------------------------------------------------------
First you forget names,
then you forget faces.

then you forget to pull up your zipper.
It's much worse when
you forget to pull it down....

--------------------------------------------------------------
Long ago
when men cursed
and beat the ground with sticks,
it was called witchcraft....
today, it's called golf.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Two old guys are pushing their carts 
around Wal-Mart
when they collide.
The first old guy says to the second guy,
'Sorry about that. I'm looking for my wife,
and I guess I wasn't paying attention
 to where I was going.
The second old guy says, 'That's OK, it's a coincidence..
I'm looking for my wife, too..'
I can't find her and I'm getting a little desperate'
The first old guy says, 'Well,
maybe I can help you find her..
What does she look like?'
The second old guy says,
'Well, she is 27 yrs old, tall,
with red hair, blue eyes, long legs,
and is wearing short shorts..
What does your wife look like?'
To which the first old guy says,
'Doesn't matter,
--- let's look for yours.'

 What kids think about childbirth...
Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the call.

The house was very dark so the paramedic asked Kathleen , a 3-year old girl to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he helped  deliver the baby. Very diligently, Kathleen did as she was asked. 

Heidi pushed and pushed and after a little while, Connor was born.
 

The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom. 

Connor began to cry.

The paramedic then thanked Kathleen for her help and asked the wide-eyed 3-yr old what she thought about what she had just witnessed.

Kathleen quickly responded, 
'He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place......smack his butt again!'

A few days ago I was having some work done at my local garage. A blonde came in and asked for a seven-hundred- ten. 

We all looked at each other and another customer asked, 'What is a seven-hundred- ten?' 
She replied, 'You know, the little piece in the middle of the engine, I have lost it and need a new one..' 

She replied that she did not know exactly what it was, but this piece had always been there. 

The mechanic gave her a piece of paper and a pen and asked her to draw what the piece looked like. 

She drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710. He then took her over to a car just like hers which had its hood up and asked 'is there a 710 on this car?'.

She pointed and said, 'Of course, its right there.' the mechanic fainted


If you're not sure what a 710 is:

HOW  TO INSTALL A HOME SECURITY SYSTEM

1.  Go to a secondhand store and buy a pair of size 14--16 men's work boots. 

2. Place them on your front porch, along with a copy of  Guns & Ammo Magazine.

3. Put four giant dog dishes  next to the boots and magazines.

4. Leave a note on your  door that  reads:


Bubba:
Bertha,  Duke, Slim, & I went for more ammo and beer. Be back in about an  hour.
Don't mess with the pit bulls. They got the  mailman this morning and
messed him up  bad.
I don't think Killer took part, but it was hard to  tell
from all the blood.
Anyway, I locked  all four of 'em in the house.
Better wait outside. Be  right back.

Say It Isn't So!

Could our PC government in Alberta be corrupt? Surely not, they have only been in power for 4 decades. Alberta Ardvark has been mentioning this stuff, but who is he, just a blogger. Just a blogger who got a national paper, the National Post to write about it....how's that for blogger power? WTG Ard!

A scandal over improper political donations in Alberta has been brewing for months, and new details dug up by the opposition Wildrose Party are further evidence of a systemic problem. It is alleged that the governing Progressive Conservative party has been accepting donations, largely through fund-raising events, from government entities. And while most of the donations are relatively small, too many have come to light to be ignored.

What is Red Ali doing about the improper political donations? Nothing. I guess she figures if you just ignore it, it will go away. It won't. Wildrose won't let it go away if they are smart. 

Alison's Magical Mystery Tour!

Red Ali is on a tour, using taxpayers money to embrace Albertans. She took her cabinet Ministers on a political, Alison in Wonderland party, at our expense. This is a pre-election tour to get her face in the news.It is Alison's Magical Mystery Tour, because we are wondering why she is on it, when the Gateway pipeline is being discussed right now in Edmonton! Can you say "out of touch"?

With all this touring, one can hardly find time to govern.
Alberta Premier Alison Redford’s cabinet began a province-wide tour Monday, hoping to “talk with Albertans about their priorities for the future.” It’s an all-too-familiar refrain as of late. They may indeed find Albertans’ priorities include, for starters, a preference for fewer tours.
....

Tours can add up. For instance, in 2010, when Ms. Redford was justice minister, her office spent $61,103.27 on “meals, accommodation and travel,” but detailed breakdowns aren’t made public.
Between April and November 2011, Alberta’s 21 ministries claimed a total of $487,354.83 in ministers’ “meals, accommodation and travel.” It’s an average of approximately $23,207 over the first eight months of the fiscal year. And that’s above what each MLA can claim for travel.
How well is that money being spent? How many days did they sit? Consider this:



Depending on the math, the opposition parties pointed out the shortened session means the legislature would be open for business a total of just 44 or 45 days this year.
“The PCs are playing hooky,” Rachel Notley, one of two New Democratic MLAs, said in a statement. “Having a full fall sitting is important to getting work done for Albertans.”

How would you like to work for only 45 days a year and get full pay? Right, they are in their ridings....doing what? Have you ever met your MLA? I have, and he's a mouse, now known as our Health Minister. She likes weak "yes" men around her, it makes her look better.

We have two females running to be Premier. As a female, I should be torn about who to vote for, but I am not. I really find nothing to like about Red Ali. She is a typical lefty feminist, and honestly, she makes my nose turn up because I smell something not quite right about her, call it my sixth sense.

Tonight, I got invited to participate in a conference call from Danielle Smith, it was about education. I listened to all the people asking questions, and I liked all of her answers. She is one smart lady. The conference call cost way less than Alison's Magical Mystery Tour, and it was funded by the Wildrose Party, not the taxpayers.

Most importantly, Danielle leads a party that is actually Conservative, not like our PC/red tory/liberal party. She is young, dynamic and personable. Heck, even Rick Mercer went out on a date with her!


Only thing I think is missing from this video is that she should have taken him to the shooting gallery where he could have shot a real gun. He would have liked that, as he is a great supporter of our military, and horrifying as it might be to lefties, our military actually have weapons and know how to use them!

Ask yourself, who is the phony, Alison or Danielle? I suspect that Albertans are smart enough to smell a rat, and Alberta is rat free! Go Danielle and Wildrose!
