My only quibble with this story is that the goblin wasn’t dead at the end of it.
An employee of a gas station in the 200 block of West Camp Wisdom Road, near the border with Duncanville, alerted the mother about 10 p.m. that a man was trying to get into her SUV.
She jumped into the vehicle. When the man didn’t stop, she pulled a gun from the glove box and shot him in the head, police said.
The vehicle then crashed into a utility pole.
So far, so good. But the goblin didn’t croak, because:
“I should have just have emptied the whole clip but I didn’t. I didn’t. I just wanted to give him a warning shot that was it.”
I can’t criticize Our Heroine too much, because she stopped the danger to her kids, and that’s all that matters. However, I just hope that the thing ends here, with the choirboy in jail for a long time — too long to come after the woman when he gets out, or too old to try this again with someone else.
Sometimes, you see, it’s better to end the thing properly, even if you aren’t a killer.
