I'm talking about murder rate of black teens.

Given the facts as presented, it seems likely that this woman:

1. Hates young black men, and was just itching for a chance to blow some of them away.
2. Feels that all young black men are hoodlums, and was being proactive by pulling a gun on them right away and holding them at bay until the police could arrive.
3. Is crazy to the point that she perceived a group of fundraising kids to be a threat on par with terrorists or space aliens.

But just to play devil's advocate, let's consider another possibility. Maybe these teenagers were acting belligerent. Maybe she told them no, she didn't want to donate; and they started getting in her face and acting intimidating. This is not entirely unprecedented, either with young black men or with football players (of any race). She may have felt threatened by their behavior or their demeanor, and decided that she'd rather not take the chance of becoming a victim.

In any case, thankfully no one was hurt. The justice system will sort it all out.

You see her? She looks like she played varsity. A proper diet and a talk about not going from 0-60 in seconds would help.
Still, because of the way things go in the media, I'll wait a bit to find out the story.
