Bill Bradley: Defending yourself is no mental illness

I wonder if Richard Burt thinks the mother of nine year old twins in Atlanta who saved herself and her two small children from a home intruder (with a criminal history dating back to 2008) has a "mental" problem. You see, Richard, the intruder wasn't just going after their things, he was going after them as they were hiding in a crawl space.

She shot the guy and when the police arrived he was crying and complaining that she shot him -- what a terrible shame. He lived and hopefully justice will be served -- again.

I suspect that just giving hugs to the guy wasn't going to protect the lady and her young children however my guess is that Mr. Burt would still probably find fault with her actions.

Bill Bradley,
