    Excellent story. Kudos to the reporters as they seemed to remain very open-minded and actually had some positive things to say.

    Great story, at least the burglar was straight forward and honest. Hopefully the guy learns that even when your desperate you can't resort to crime, and he gets some help.

    High marks for bravery, but low marks for tactics. While she thought the intruder was gone (despite evidence to his living in the home), she should have waited for the police to come and search. She demo'd that she walked around touching things, opening doors, etc., essentially disturbing the crime scene. She got lucky that she wasn't jumped by the intruder. It turned out well, but not because she did everything right.

    Yep, I agree, she should have waited outside.

    Shes lucky that she had her gun because she could have become a statistic.She knew something was wrong and went to get her gun but she definitely should have waited outside.
