When I first read the headline for this story over at Keep & Bear I thought for a moment they were talking about Los Angelos. I should have known better.

"PORT ALLEN [Louisiana]-- Two women with knees bent and feet planted wide apart to ensure a steady aim held a pair of would-be burglars at gunpoint Thursday afternoon until West Baton Rouge sheriff's deputies could arrest the suspects, the Sheriff's Office said."

Course if it would have been in Los Angelos, the burglars would have been escorted to a trauma center because of their understandable emotional distress. Meetings with lawyers to sue the women for emotional damages would have been arranged while the women would have been arrested for attempted assault with a firearm. Louisiana on the other hand seems to have its priorities straight: arrest the criminals & leave the citizens least in this case.
