Don't mess with Doolittle

And this is in California. Some of us don't live in the big cities.....
Bad guy get's loose from the Coppers. Reverse 911 warns the locals. Ms. Doolittle takes care of business. As of this writing Anny Oakley, AKA Ms. Doolittle, isn't being charged with anything. But on the safe side, don't point anything that appears to be a weapon at anybody.

A few inches above COM is more efficient as there are more critical things there!!
Shoot and continue to shoot until the BG is no longer a threat !

First I'd heard of reverse 911. Interesting.

This incident proves the need for practice in accurate control of one's firearm when shooting. Only blind luck prevented hitting an unintended target.

She went to her backyard to retrieve her dogs when she saw Carmelo jumping over her fence. Deputies said Carmelo approached Doolittle and again acted like he was reaching for a gun before she shot at him several times and hit his ankle.
Bullwinkle's Choice: Don't bring a cell phone to a gunfight or Draw Pictures, not draw down.

The perpetrator was wearing an ankle bracelet? What was he thinking? That he could get away undetected?
