Trespassing and shoving her hand aside while she asks him not to mess with her stuff and has signs posted saying that she does not want the "smart meter"? She wasn't going to overpower the guy, and if she called the police he would have been halfway done tearing up her old meter, doesn't seem she had alot of choice at that point. Just my opinion.Uhh, not even close to justifiable.
Keep the PK380 holstered.
So someone touching you is justifiable use of lethal force now? Yikes, I better stop shaking hands with people.Good for her. Once the guy touched her, she was well within her rights.
I'm sure someone else agrees, otherwise there would have been a mug shot in the story instead of an interview.
Use of lethal force? She didn't shoot him. She (a 50-something year old woman) presented her gun after she was pushed a few times by a presumably much stronger utility worker who was asked several times to leave her property and disregarded several No Trespassing signs.So someone touching you is justifiable use of lethal force now?

The UPS guy wouldn't shove you aside to make sure he gets to your front door, and if he did there would be problems, if you were 50 years old and not as strong as he was there might be a problem.I don't like when the UPS driver walks on my lawn. Open fire.
No. Save the guns for defending your life and fix issues with utility companies in a civil manner.
Certainly. And it seems the mood so far in this thread is that if the blacksmith comes to tighten the bolts up on the drawbridge and you don't like his hair color the off the the guillotine with him!I dont know. I would think a person's home is their castle.
