This is probably the most phenomenal story I have heard in a very long time!

Sarah McKinley, age 18, of Oklahoma called in a 911 emergency. Two men were trying to break in to her home. She told dispatch that she was armed and she was asking whether or not she was allowed to shoot the intruders if they were successful in breaking in.

Some of the conversation was recorded. But not all of it.

What happened was that Sarah shot and killed the first intruder with a shotgun blast to the chest once he had entered her residence. The second possible intruder was scared shitless and took off, but then later turned himself in.

I was glad to hear earlier today that no charges will be filled against her. She’s had a very rough few weeks. Her husband had died of cancer on Christmas Day! And then on New Year’s Eve, two morons were trying to break in to her home only to steal the pain medication of the deceased husband. Sarah was smart enough to give the first guy into the house a dose of lethal blow of justice by a shotgun.

How terrible it must have been for Sarah towards the end of 2011. And on top of all of this, she has a 3 month old child to take care of, now on her own.

But I actually salute her courage and bravery for what she did. She did what she had to do to make sure that she protected herself and the life of her baby. And those who were breaking the law have dealt with their consequences of doing so.

Sarah McKinley receives the Heroic Award for this month. Bravo, Sarah. Bravo!
