Woman pulls gun on needle-carrying robber, dares him to stab her

Woman pulls gun on needle-carrying robber, dares him to stab her
Quote:
A man tried to rob a woman at an ATM on Saturday by threatening to inject her with a needle, but she was an armed, licensed weapon holder and pulled out her gun in defense, according to a police report.

Horry County police were called about 9 a.m. to Coalition Drive and Socastee Boulevard, where a 40-year-old victim reported the incident.

The victim told police she was withdrawing cash from an ATM at a bank near Socastee Boulevard when a man approached her and demanded she give her money or he would inject her with a needle that he was carrying, police said.

The victim said that she grabbed her handgun once the suspect threatened her and said, “I dare you to stab me.” The suspect then said “Are you seriously going to do that to me,” and ran off, according to the report.

Damn right.

She's the lucky one, because she got away with it instead of him grabbing the gun so fast she'd have lost it before she knew what was happening. A woman alone & close to a man threatening her, should have just shot before he even realized she had a gun. It would have been much safer for her, and she was already justified.

I don't believe in endangering yourself to give second chances to the thug in a case like this.

You are right, but if you want to be a true Glocktalker, you need to post about how terrible it is that she had to point the gun and how she should have run instead and how she'd never have recovered if she shot a person.

Good for her. An instant classic in the annuals of lawful self-defense.

Her verbal challenge to the bad guy was sort a p.o.-ed female equivalent of:

"Go ahead. Make my day."

Since she is alive and not hurt, I would say she did a good job.

Where's the chorus of people crying about Brandishing her gun?

She's fine, he's in jail. Good outcome.

Perhaps she managed to get off the X, out of arm's reach, and cover him safely from a secure retention position. In any event, better to prevail without firing a shot in this case.

Cheaper too.

...and obviously being mischaracterized as a victim.

She did not think or act like a victim.

Let's look at this logically.

She didn't shoot him. He's arrested. Plenty of evidence.

She shoots him and kills him. Hours of talking to the police. Possible lawsuit from family to defend. Hours with counseling.

She shoots him and wounds him. Almost certain civil suit, unless state law prohibits it. Hours with the police. Possible counseling sessions.

Mind you, I don't believe in giving warnings, but if I can end a situation without firing, that's my first choice.
