No word on what the book was. Mother who stabbed daughter, set house on fire, arrested
Investigators say a woman [Taheerah Ahmad] who allegedly bound and gagged her three daughters, stabbed the eldest repeatedly and set their house on fire told them she had become upset after observing two of her children reading a book.
This is just insane.
They thought it would be a good idea to break into a house. They were wrong. Grandfather of Oklahoma teen killed by homeowner in burglary says AR15 made for ‘unfair’ fight – Tribunist Daily
The homeowner who pulled the trigger has not been charged with any crimes because police say he acted in self-defense.
The consequences of violently invading someone’s house can be extreme. But then you shouldn’t be invading someone’s house.
Getaway driver, 21-year-old Elizabeth Rodriguez, was uninjured but later arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of second-degree burglary.
Police also say Rodriguez admitted to planning the burglary.
Self-defense is a human-right. And bitching about self-defense seems to be more and more common these days.
I have been hoping for more information to be published on this story, but you get what they’re offering. Police: Owner of vacant home shoots intruder in Bartlesville; man hospitalized with non-life-threatening injury
So a guy goes to check on a vacant house he owns – it had been broken into recently. He finds a stranger hiding in the attic.
“At some point the homeowner fired a shot striking the suspect once.”
The guy who got shot was taken to a local hospital, where he is expected to survive his injury.

Not sure what he was trying to accomplish, but I’m pretty sure his day didn’t turn out as he planned. Suspect in break-in shot by ex-wife | Tulsa’s 24-Hour News, Weather and Traffic
He was trying to break into his ex-wife’s apartment. He has apparently be harassing her.
She shot him in the side.
No mention of a restraining order, or what he will be charged with. But I’m glad she realized that she needed a plan for her self-defense. (And the defense of her kids, who live with her.) Oklahoma has that wonderful “Make My Day” law, so the chances she will be charged with anything are slim.

Just give them what they want, and they will leave you alone. That’s what we’re told, but this guy had the money and was heading for the door, when he turned around and came back. GRAPHIC VIDEO: Liquor store owner recounts robbery that led to shooting.
He came into the store with a shotgun and threatened the clerk, who is the daughter of the owner. She opens the register, and he takes the cash. The clerk and her mother then hide behind the counter.
Then, after it appears he’s going to leave the store, Lee and her mother crouch behind the counter and Lee hands a pistol from under the register to her mother. Suddenly, the suspect is seen running back behind the counter. At that point, Ring fires her first shot.
“All I was thinking was ‘Just give him the money and go,’ and next thing I know, I see him back in my face,” Ring said.
Both women were armed at that point, so things didn’t go well for the would-be robber.
She fires at least two shots at him before the video ends. Most of the shots aimed at the suspected robber appear to strike him.
The bad guy is in the hospital, being treated for gunshot wounds.
He thought it would be a good idea to break into a house. He was wrong. Ada home invasion suspect shot by homeowner
It was 3 AM when the homeowner woke to sounds of someone in his kitchen, and flashlight beam in the house.
Reif says he came face to face with Chris Born, who he claims fired four shots at him, but missed.
That’s when Reif grabbed his .38 caliber revolver and shot Born twice in the chest.
Chris Born was arrested a short distance away. Jeanette Matthews and Tara Whittecar were in a separate truck and were also arrested. (Pontotoc County Sheriff’s office believes they were acting as lookouts.) Dustin Hoots, who was in a pickup truck with Born, escaped on foot. Police are still searching. In their search they turned up several stolen weapons. Born will be facing weapons charges when he gets out of the hospital.

The Left loves to say, “Just give them what they want, and everything will be OK.” Of course it isn’t true. Tulsa Store Clerk Shot In Leg During Robbery
And the Left never likes to bring up the subject of rape when they are giving that advice. But that is a story for another time.
Police say the man walked into the store and pointed a gun at the clerk, demanding cash from the store’s clerk.
After getting the cash, the man shot that clerk in the leg.
Violent criminals don’t stop being violent criminals because of anything you are doing or not doing.
Even the cops are not clear on this. Though mostly they don’t like the “little people” – that’s you and me – stealing their thunder.
“That is the advice we give victims, just comply. And then when they do comply, someone is callous enough to inflict injury,” said Tulsa Police Captain Mike Williams.
The fact that the advice is so flawed, doesn’t stop them from giving it. (And the cops have not caught the guy with the gun.)
Being armed may not have saved this clerk from getting shot. (He is expected to be OK.) Cooperation is not the iron clad guarantee that some, including cops and corporate officers, who will almost certainly never face a robber in one of their stores, or delivering one of the pizzas, or whatever, would have you believe. (“There are no guarantees in this life save for death and next winter’s snow.”) Cooperation is a strategy. And a fairly poor strategy at that.
