"The suspect in the wig died from his injuries in the driveway".
Good. Too bad she missed the other 2. I have zero sympathy for anyone who tries something like this and if they die in the attempt, that's a few less scumbags in the world. Anyone who comes to your house armed and kicks down the door, are probably not there just to rob the place. There have been far too many home invasions where the victims were raped, tortured and then killed. Men and women.
One got what he deserved and let's hope the other 2 get the same.

Good for her, but there's got to be more to this...
1. The front door opened into a supply room?
2. A camera trained on said supply room (that seemingly isn't valuable items)?
3. The burglars came in armed and ready (that's rather odd, one maybe, but all 3?)
4. Why assume there's money (and enough to warrant 3 armed men)?
5. Why this strange tactic of pure aggression on the woman's part?
Her heroism is blinding most of us from asking these critical thinking questions, because something tells me this is really more of a quasi-slavery deal, where illegals are brought over to work off cost in near slave conditions at a restaurant, and this may be more like a criminal defending her cash from other rival criminals.
Continuing to fire as they ran away is just a nice "southern" way of telling some one "DON'T COME BACK HERE - FOOL".
I think that's the exact message she was trying to send to her rivals.

You cant assume things, based on your subjective experience and call it dogma.. What you think, felt and what you perceived is out of context when you are being judged, well in a modern society, and the USA isnt a modern western society. Its a primitive society that is based on morals instead of intention and lack the better judgement understanding we are animals..
She felt threatened, yes, first shoot, yes.. Self defence..
When they started to flee, it becomes a another scene..
If you have a deadly weapon in your hand, you have the responsibility to know where to use lethal force and when not to.. This is a fundamental problem with primitive cultures, they always act in subjective matter.. Meaning " I felt, i thought and i perceived. "
Raised as a Hero dies as a victim, should be the Slogan for the US

The only issue I had with this engagement was the last shot she took while standing in her doorway.
I would not have taken that shot. I would have stopped firing when the criminals exited the building.
I'd continue to cover them with the muzzle until I was sure the engagement was over, however.

There is always a fight after the fight.
Here are my rules and how I train:
When the criminal breaks contact, I stop engaging, but remain ready to reengage.
I don't shoot over property. There have been too many cases of people going to jail for shooting the burglar breaking into the car in the driveway.
I only shoot as much as is necessary to end the fight.
I don't let my ego get me into fights.
I don't go to places where there are intoxicated people, large sporting events, or political rallies. (Don't hang out with stupid people, doing stupid things, in stupid places)
If I am in my home and the criminal is in it they WILL get shot. People think burglars break in just to take stuff. But I have found that if burglars want to break in to take stuff they will usually do it during the day when there is less risk of being caught. Criminals don't want a fight, they want a compliant victim, or no one around at all. If they break in at night while I am home, I have to assume they are there for more than just my TV.
