A little TOO proactive?

Say you're a mother of young children, and a level 3 sex offender moves into your neighborhood. What would you do? Would you do what Tammy Gibson did? She confronted the young man who'd recently moved into a nearby trailer park and began beating him with an aluminum baseball bat.

Sometimes there's a fine line between self-defense and vigilante action. Sometimes that line becomes a canyon. Ms. Gibson proactively built a bridge to cross that canyon. Sometimes it's better to stay on your side of the line.
