Case Closed in Cape Girardeau Missouri

On October 25, 2008, Ronnie Preyer, a career criminal and registered sex offender broke into her home and brutally raped her. He eluded capture by the police.

On Halloween, at 2:00 AM he returned again. She was watching television when suddenly the power went out. She heard her basement door's window shatter. She tried to call 911. She could not. He had turned off the power to her home. He came crashing through the door. She was in the dark. Defenseless.

Or so he thought. She had borrowed a 12 gauge shotgun. As he burst into the room where she crouched trapped, she let loose a blast of buckshot straight into his chest. He collapsed. She escaped. The police arrived. He died at the hospital. No charges will be filed.

If this were reported accurately more often there would be a reason to watch local news.

On the national level the story of the child being shot on Halloween gets mention over and over. They just leave out the detail that the shooter was a convicted felon who could not legally possess a firearm. What a surprise. Why point out that criminals behave like criminals?

Meanwhile this story about a woman who put a permanent end to a career sex offender is just left as a local story.

The media hasn't understood that to the public they are very clear in terms of their goal. They have a goal of scaring parents about guns and their law abiding neighbors. They do NOT want to frighten the career rapists and convicted felons.

I agree with hyunchback that this story should get far more play. It's more than just the media though, in most places the the government as well.

We just can't have citizens "taking the law into their own hands". What do you think this is, Dodge City?

Killing guys like this piece of crap isn't good for the criminal justice industry, uh, I mean system.

Not meaning to take delight in another human (somewhat) being's death, I must say, "BOOYAH!" One more piece of scum finds his criminal career violently ended by good use of the right protected by the 2nd Amendment. Good on the lady for pushing forward after her rape and taking initiative to protect herself, and I hope she feels some closure in erasing this monster.

For such fools as claim, "Guns aren't needed because the police are just a phonecall away," meet Exhibit A in why a firearm trumps any law agency, any day of the week.

She did the planet a favor. Too bad no one did it for her before the first break in, I doubt it was his first "offence", sexual or otherwise.

Damn, I am so sick of the career criminals, released time and again to commit mayhem time and again.

Good on her.

Great Ending to a sad story... If she had been armed the 1st time, it would never have happened! And hyunch is right, this plays against what the MSM wants to portray, so the story will never see the light of day.

coroner ruled it a justifiable homicide...

Someone, possibly Twain, said that there should be another category of homicide, the praiseworthy homicide.

This happened 90 minutes from where I grew up (and where my parents still live) and maybe 4.5 hours from where I live now, and we both live in the same state of Missouri. I didn't hear a thing about this on the local news here (big shock). She did the right thing, and the only thing that bothers me is that someone even feels like they have to say "no charges will be filed", as if there should be any question.

As for my house, we have a long history of 12 gauges and Halloween going together. Halloween is the only night of the year than a normally security-conscious adult will open the front door of their home to a total stranger wearing a mask. Before people say I'm paranoid & afraid of three year olds, we get a lot of trick or treaters who are bigger than me (and I'm 6' 1") and they seem to come in groups of 4-6. When I open the door, it's with a concealed .45 ACP under my untucked shirt, and usually there's a 12 gauge riot gun 3 steps behind the front door, if I have to retreat as someone tries to push their way in.

Also, to clarify, I'm NOT the moonbat "Terry" claiming the CIA killed Kristen Brydum last month. I'm the "Terry" who is still kicking himself for not getting an Argentine .45 like the you turned into the low-budget Wilson…

It gives one pause that Hussein Obama has said he is against the use of a firearm for self defense.

I suppose he would prefer that the rapist just get to "do his thing" and hope the victim doesn't get killed in the process.

Good for her, for refusing to be a victim.

Good for the authorities in Cape Girardeau, for making it clear that self-defense is a reasonable thing to do.

The Medical Examiner rules it a "justifiable homicide"??? How about JUSTIFIED homicide.

Congratulations to this lady for sending this mutt to hell.

I am glad she choose not to be a victim again and I am sure she saved many other women from the same thing she suffered.

I am not one to delight in the death of others, but I can not say I feel bad.

He was ugly enough when he was alive...
