Washington woman pulls gun on flasher, in front of her 6-year old son

A woman was walking her dog and pushing a stroller with her 6-year old son in it in Longview, Washington, around Lake Sacajawea.  Suddenly a man approached her, flashing her and masturbating, saying, "You need to watch this."

That's when she pulled out a loaded .38-caliber Ruger handgun out of her coat pocket and threatened to shoot him to death, giving him to the count of five before she would shoot.  The man then fled.  She then sent her dog after him.

It was the first day she had carried a gun concealed, outside the home.

From an article and news video:

Around 8 p.m. on Wednesday the woman was at Lake Sacajawea with her 6-year-old son and a dog when a man approached her aggressively while masturbating and suggested she should watch him. 
Instead the woman grabbed her gun, a Ruger .380. She's never carried it to the park, she told the paper, but fog and darkness prompted her to bring it. 
"My son was facing me in my stroller and I had the magazine in my gun, but it wasn't locked in place," she said. "So I locked it in place and cocked it and pointed it at him and told him he had five seconds and I was going to shoot him." 
Longview police detective Kyle Sahim said officers had not found the man Thursday evening but were investigating several suspects.

While the man's actions are a serious offense, were they worthy of a potential death sentence?


  1. How do you know what a pervert is going to do?

    I think it was perfectly understandable to pull her gun, although sending the dog after him (most dogs wouldn't go btw) makes a bit more sense.

    No guy wants to stand there, risking being bit about the genitals.

    She wanted him gone - makes sense. Although who puts a 6 year old in a stroller? That's old enough for first grade... and who takes their kid to the park in the dark and the fog for that matter?

    This is one of those stories that would seem to have more to it than was reported.

  2. This young man is clearly collateral damage in the war on women. This young man was merely acting in accordance with this society's twisted view of gender roles and pathological objectification of women. He did not deserve to have a gun pulled on him. The young mom should have done the right thing and offered to lend him a hand.
