Considering she flattened the tire of the get-away car while the thieves were driving away, she seems to be ok with the marksmanship skills....as long as that was her target.
Could have been a lot worse for her. Though I think 18 months probation and the loss of her permit and ability to defend herself for the next 7 years is a pretty stiff penalty for a crime in which nobody was injured and only criminals were directly threatened with injury.
I know, I know. We don't use deadly force for mere property theft, and with the suspects fleeing nobody was in any danger. She should have known better. I just think the penalty is harsh given what few details I have available.
