IMO the real story behind the Mom in Loganville (#7) wasn't what happened to her and her twins; it was what happened to another Atlanta woman (Melissa Burke) at around the same time. She heard someone breaking into her home and hid herself away. Somehow the intruder realized someone was in the home, tracked her down and shot her multiple times in her hiding place. Just like shooting fish in a barrel. Thank God, she is alive and recovering, but as Patrice3 notes we only have two ways of dealing with intimidation. I wonder how this would have turned out if Ms. Burke had carried a little more persausion.
