NORTH VERSAILLES, Pa. (WHTM) – A woman facing trial for a shooting that critically wounded another woman in a western Pennsylvania Walmart acted in self-defense, her attorney told Pittsburgh television station WTAE.

User from PA: Good for her to defend herself, too bad she didn’t put all the attackers in the ground

Shanitta Thompson: Now., had that happened to an off duty officer and he or she did the exact same thing! He or she would never have been charged. I'm glad she protected herself.

Cheryl Martin: she did what she had to do. Defend herself

Tim Hake: I'm all for a person being able to defend themselves and I in no way support the ridiculous gun control bullshit they are coming out with or trying to pass. that said this woman may have some trouble claiming self defense as USUALLY for the use of deadly force to be used they require that you or the victim run/do whatever possible to remove yourself from the fight or violent situation and if at that point you have no further retreat or recourse then the self defense by use of deadly force is ok. do I agree with that rule or statement, not necessarily, but that's usually how they approach it and it looks like this woman got attacked and she didn't intend on running at all she was gangbanging. and pull that shit on this fools. now that's just alil fun at the end but seriously tho she didn't seem to make any attempts to flee the situation so I dunno how a judge or jury may look at this. hopefully for her sake they feel because she was being attacked by 2 people

AnDrOID AbUsER: goos thing she wasnt in Ny MY CASE cost me 100k to beat 5he chargws on self defense. 30 to life

Being attacked by 2 assailants likely justifies the use of deadly force. There's no real margin of safety and your position can erode in an instant.
