Woman admits killing ex-boyfriend

A Clayton County woman admitted she shot and killed her ex-boyfriend Sunday -- four days after the expiration of a court order for him to stay away from her, police said. No charges are planned against Jodie Beth Swanner, 36, who told police she shot John Michael Moores, 35, once in the chest and once in the shoulder, said Clayton police Capt. Jeff Turner. Moores pleaded guilty last year to making harassing phone calls and criminal trespass against Swanner and her children. Early Sunday morning, Swanner said, she returned to her home in the La Costa Mobile Home Park near Hampton to find that someone had cut off her electricity. Moores emerged from the darkness, threatened her and approached as if to hurt her, she told police.

I'm glad she had the means to protect herself!

Yep, that's Georgia:D In most areas, she wouldn't even have to go to the police station. They'd just take her statement and say,"Have a good day, ma'am."

Good for her.

Like I keep saying, if the feminist organizations were really concerned about empowering their constituents, they would heartily encourage CCW and training. When it comes to "restraining" a psycho ex, a .38 in the purse beats a piece of paper any day of the week.
