A Nurse with a Gun

She Nearly Got the Best of Him.......

She was strong and fit. She had martial arts training. Her dog was with her. She had the wits and the will to survive. She coped with mental torment, beatings, and rape.....For three days. Meredith Emerson forcibly disarmed her captor of both a knife and a baton, suffering two black eyes and a fractured nose in the process.

"That's one thing that broke my heart in this case," Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent Clay Bridges said. "She was doing everything she was supposed to do to stay alive, and we didn't get there in time."

Breda said it best.........If only she had a gun. May Meredith Emerson's soul rest in peace.

What a tough and courageous soul she was. While it's probably cold comfort to her family, she didn't give up, did she?

On the other hand, the article was an amazing look into the mind of a twisted, cruel human-like being.

The old biblical punishment seems about right, don't you think?

As a guy with a wife and three daughters, this twists my gut.

I wonder if the old ways of discouraging women from being out alone should come back.

Guns for all my girls.

Very sad case. There's a great post over at The Lawdog files that everyone should read.

I had a comment but it's gone now. Such an awful, awful story.
I'm speechless...
