Maya Angelou Tried To Kill Someone Then Lied To Police

I love this story. Liberal icon admits she uses a gun to protect herself, and actually fired at someone who touched her doorknob then lied to the cops about it. Starts at 3min mark. I love the line "I heard the rhythm of someone walking on the leaves".

It's ok that Maya Angelou owns and shoots guns and lies to the police about it--she's black.

Get with the program!

Horray for her. She saved a life by verbally warning the intruder and then letting them know she meant business. Hiistory shows that Black people are not allowed to defend themselves, but she did a courageous thing, stopped possible harm to herself and the intruder. And by the way, Fred, what is your motive by distorting what she said?

Thanks for the link, Fred. Thankfully, there wasn't a kid outside the door who got shot as a result of such sheer and utter recklessness. What I didn't know, is that Black people are not allowed to defend themselves:
"Hiistory shows that Black people are not allowed to defend themselves,"

Tryvon Martin defended himself and died doing it. A Black man killed a man that came at him with a box cutter. The Black man was defending himself on his own property. The Black man is now serving a long prison sentence.

I'm sorry Zeyad where is the distortion? She said she fired a shot. To me that means she meant to kill someone. When police said the shot came from inside the house she said "well I don't know how that happened" I think anyone who uses defensive weapons will tell you that you don't fire the weapon unless you mean to kill. If you only want to warn someone you tell them you have a weapon, maybe show it, but don't use it unless you mean harm.
Since the "intruder" who she admits she didn't see, only heard, could have been killed by the shot my title for the post is correct.
I have no problem with her defending herself, it's nice to know she believes in some part of the Second Amendment.

Fred said>"I think anyone who uses defensive weapons will tell you that you don't fire the weapon unless you mean to kill. If you only want to warn someone you tell them you have a weapon, maybe show it, but don't use it unless you mean harm".

Their are people out there that would not want to shoot another human being, So its not Inconceivable that someone would fire a shot off without accually shooting at that person. Get off that politically correct BS about not using it unless you mean to cause harm, everyone is not trained in the mindset of don't fire the weapon unless you mean to kill. I see you like to make certain statements to provoke arguments with certain people..i.e. above statement...

People not trained with the mindset concerning how and when to use deadly force, have NO business pulling a gun out--period. How many people, specially children, get hit with stray bullets each year?

Almost every website involved in gun training and safety has this line on it somewhere. 1. All guns are ALWAYS loaded.

2. Never point a gun at anything you are not willing to kill or destroy.

3. Keep your finger OFF the trigger until your sights are on the target.

4. Always be sure of your target and what is beyond.

5. Store all guns safely and securely.
There is nothing politcally correct about it, it's just a fact for people who are trained. Don't believe me? just put in the google search engine "never point a gun at anything you aren't willing to kill"
And next time do some research before you post.

Yes, a fact for people who are Trained, I never questioned the gun training statements. I said you were being politically correct because you’re using your gun training reference as a personal dominance as well as your exclusion of a segment of people who would not want to shoot another person. You’re dismissing the fact that there are those who would discharge the firearm to scare someone away instead of possible taking a life or just not wanting to injure them. Which was my point, or didn't I make it clear enough, which is the problem with liberals, and now you Fred, they dismiss the obvious point. I have noticed that when you get pinned down you either don’t respond or you get liberal and jump the point. Get real Fred…. I see through that, when you do that, you diminish your integrity. Your much more intelligent than that to respond with liberal responses such as the last few concerning the questions I had for you.

"DTOM" {1776} " We The People" {1791}

You write way over my head. I have no idea what personal cominance is first of all. I guess your point wan't clear enough as I obviously missed what you were trying to say.
Let me try again, people who don't want to shoot people don't normally purchase guns. They shouldn't. Don't buy a gun for a defensive weapon unless you are prepared to use it to kill someome. Don't be politically correct and buy a gun to show your support for the 2nd amendment. If you buy a gun, get trained, and be prepared to kill someone if necessary. I know a lot of people with guns, not one of them say they would discharge the wepon to scare someone. If you don't want to take a life don't have a gun. I hope that clears up any questions about my thinking on the topic.

Fred says>"I have no idea what personal cominance is first of all", neither do I?????. Yeah, you missed my point twice or you just chose to dismiss it, go back and read my post and yours again. I'll chalk this up to you being tired. Anyway, just because you don't know people with guns that would rather discharged the firearm to scare someone away doesn't mean they are not out there, and instead of seeing that you ignore it for the sake of an argument which puts you in a progressive liberal light. By the way personal dominance and exclusion fall under being politically correct....Good day chap...

About your above statement and this one, is BS, Fred says>". If you only want to warn someone you tell them you have a weapon, maybe show it, but don't use it unless you mean harm".
Yeah if your trained in that mindset..otherwise BS....

hahahahahahahahaha!

Jeepmaker, being you are a fellow pizza delivery boy I can see where you would be upset.
When I was in the service I was told not to shoot till I seen the white of their eyes.

I deliver flowers, not pizza sperm burper.

Whispers of a shadow cross my window
Silence broken by groaning porch sounding like devil rising
Begone! my mind screams again and again
Then I shoot the asshole
Blessed silence returns to mask my fears
Hi-ya Angelou

I've been around gun collectors, target shooters, hunters and so on, for over fifty years. I've never met one who was looking forward to shooting anyone, including a burglar. Likewise, I've never met anyone who advocated shooting a gun willy-nilly into the night, to scare away a noise outside their home. Until now, anyway. That's how innocent people get hurt or killed.

And because you don't know anyone who has discharged their weapon to scare off a burglar or otherwise means its just not conceivable right???. My point is there are, you and Fred dismiss that and respond by telling me gun training facts.

"DTOM" {1776} " We The People" {1791}

Of course it's conceivable, since Angelou admitted she did it! Would you pull a stunt like she did? I doubt it. Shoot at noises outside your house, without identifying the perp? Maybe your neighbor got some of your mail, and while trying to return it to you, you start shooting out the door? Before you can shoot, the perp has to be in your house, not just on the porch. Maybe if she told the reporter what actually happened, who she was trying to scare, it would make at least some sense. What someone who wants to scare people away from the door should do, is tape a full size picture of Clint Eastwood on the front of it.

I know a couple of people that discharged their weapon inside the house because they were scared after the intruder was inside the house and not at him. i.e. NOT TRAINED.I know a person who opened the window and shot in the air after she caught someone trying to break in her back door. I'am not talking about any daytime events.The returning mail statement is not relevent, who returns mail in the AM ??? My point was niether defending or not defending Angelou, I was making a case for those who are not trained, these are what some people do. And like I said you and Fred just keep dismissing that fact regardless of how stupid or untrained it is. ...

"DTOM" {1776} " We The People" {1791}

I wasn't talking about any daytime events! If untrained people want to scare intruders by shooting up their own house, good for them. If an innocent person catches a stray bullet---so what. If the burglar takes the gun away from the homeowner, and stuffs the barrel up the homeowners' ass before pulling the trigger----que sera sera.

Well then I stand corrected, dtom knows some stupid people

Because you do to, know stupid people, anyway thank you Fred, sarcastically or not, stupid or otherwise, it’s a fact,(i.e the original issue). That was my point from the beginning, but instead of acknowledging that point I get a Zey, purnhrt, wolfie response because I didn't agree with you. I like dueling with you Fred its fun, DTOM 3-FRED 0. Oh, bye the way, I listen to your show, and I’m not a Republican or Dem, I consider myself an Independent Constitutionalist. Just remember Fred our beliefs are our opinions it comes down to where a majority of people fall on those opinions that makes them favorable or not...

I got jungle fever!!!!!

They don't want you, Fred.

Are you speaking just for yourself, for any aged black women you know, or for all aged black women?
