Estranged boyfriend beating the crap out of his ex-girlfriend. Neighboring Woman hears and tries to intervene. Thug boyfriend starts beating the crap out of neighbor. She shoot him. From the Tampa Bay Times:
The noise awoke neighbors, including Vickie Rock, who was staying the night at her boyfriend’s apartment upstairs.
Rock, 50, of Riverview, came outside armed with a .45-caliber handgun and saw Robertson beating Vasilakos with a metal object, said Hillsborough sheriff’s spokesman Larry McKinnon.
When Rock tried to intercede, Robertson turned on her. Rock suffered several facial injuries before firing at least one round and striking Robertson, McKinnon said.
Being armed isn’t just about protecting yourself or your family. CCW is also about being able to protect others — people you might not even know — in threatening situations. That’s why it’s so important that there be law abiding citizens armed and ready in schools, malls, parks.
Vickie Rock saved a woman’s life. And, her own. As a perk, she also eliminated a violent element from society. She’s a gutsy individual. Just as a point of interest; where was her boyfriend during all of this?
