Is This How You Would React to This Situation?

Police in Allentown, Pa., were summoned to shots fired in a street at 3:41 a.m. Two women told responding officers that a woman had driven up to them, brandished a pistol, and threatened to shoot them. She then fired two shots, hitting their SUV, they said; they were not injured. As proof of their story, one of the women had taken out her cell phone and took several photos during the incident. They clearly showed the assailant’s face, car, and the gun, and police tracked down Edith Galarza, 23, and charged her with two counts of “propelling a missile” into an occupied vehicle, simple assault, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, harassment, and discharging a firearm. (RC/Easton Express-Times) ...The biggest surprise? They didn’t do one of the photos as a “selfie” with the shooter.
