    Thats aweful! She shoul have shot them with the gun instead of having them rob it from her. On another note its SAVILLE Township… not SALVILLE.

      It's "SHOULD" not shoul…… if you're going to be a dictionary be consistent.
      She could have shot them with a gun BUT unless you were in her shoes you don't know if you would have had time to get to it. What if she had it with her …. who knows if they could have taken it. There are many different ways that could have played out.
      To many what if's to judge someone. Hope she is ok and they find the jerks.

    Really strange for someone from Perry County to answer that door unprotected. No one that I know from there would have done that.
