no dgu for sherry

Nov 10, 2015 Sherry McLain claims she feared for her life when a strange man approached her in a crowded Murfreesboro, Tennessee Walmart parking lot. She drew her gun and pointed it right at him in an act of self-defense. The problem? The man had just purchased a pack of cigarettes and simply asked if she had a light:
Witnesses confirmed this and security video showed the man, who we could not reach for comment, never got closer than 10 feet to McLane. When she pulled the gun, he ran back into the store to call 911

She continued pointing the gun at him as he ran, getting several other shoppers in her gun-sight as well: Others witnesses agreed. "Clearly this is a gunowner who doesn't need to own a gun," Her 7-year-old son and his grandmother found themselves in McLain's cross hairs as the man ran past them at the Walmart. "When she looked up the gun was being pointed at the three of them and the lady says I'm going to shoot you. I'm going to kill you,"


daily kos comment: I think we can all agree Sherry does not need to be walking around with a revolver in her purse. She’s been charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment. She remains indignant and cannot understand why she was arrested when she was merely defending herself against someone who was 10 ft away and asking if she had a lighter.

Trying to get a dgu in a very bad way. I don't understand why sherry didn't just go after her dgu with a verbal threat. Woulda saved her so much trouble & possible jail time.
After you get out of prison, sherry, next time somebody asks you for a light, just give them an evil stare & say 'go away or I'll pull out my gun'. I bet that does the trick just as well. As long as you're in a public area anyway.
