    very much so...but im impressed the woman was able to mentally make the decision to shoot the intruder

    i've put my sights on someone and knew i could pull the trigger if need be...but luckily he complied with our instructions

    it is kind of rough to listen to i think though...

    very rough...the fact that you are listening to her make the decision to end someones life to save her own..you can tell it was the last thing she wanted to do but she had to...

    its almost as bad as listening to the phone call of the guy that had his lexus speed out of control because of the throttle getting stuck...the fact that you are hearing him as he knows what is about to happen and that you hear him and his family die...it chills you to the core

    maybe im somewhat jaded...but they dont bother me near as much as they should

    i spent 9 weeks in the academy getting videos of officers committing fatal mistakes and getting killed crammed down my throat

    one in particular sticks in my head like i was there watching it live

    scariest thing ive ever seen to this day

    gore in and of itself doesnt bother me

    i know theres some sick shit out there...i choose not to view it...but as far as everyday accident type gore...doesnt phase me...in real life or on video...

    watching a fellow law enforcement officer get shot is like a whole nother world

    That audio clip was unreal. I am glad she protected herself while making the proper decisions.

    The only question I have is why didnt she let him see the gun first? It would be enough to make most people leave wouldn't it?

    However, good for her for talking her way through it with the dispatcher. She stayed pretty calm and didn't get all trigger happy like some people might in that situation.
