Another quote of the day

Friday, 6 January 2012

 

 

 

“They said I couldn’t shoot him til he was inside the house, so I waited til he got in the door and then I shot him.”

 

Sarah McKinley, after killing Justin Martin, a burglar, with the permission of the emergency services. 

 

Can’t give you a link to the story because it’s in the Times (paywalled). There’s a nice coda: Martin’s alleged accomplice, Dustin Stewart, 29, has been charged with murder because police say Martin’s death was caused by their attempt to carry out the burglary.

    Astonishing, this! I hope we talking USA ‘Emergency services’ (and CPS services too), not those anywhere close to me and my friends and family in the UK?
