Good thing she couldn't fight back

We wouldn't want to hear about this story having a happy ending instead of just an ending without tragedy.

Police say he duct taped the three people -- a mother, her boyfriend and her young daughter -- then started searching the apartment. During that time the mother and her daughter were able to break free. They jumped out of the second-story window, landing face first in the alley below.

"When I went out and looked, I saw a girl hanging out of the window and then I could hear someone screaming around the corner, "Baby don't die on my." The little girl and the woman were on the ground," said AJ, neighbor.

I guess jumping out of your second story window with your baby to avoid the criminal is the safe bet when compared to smoking the home intruder with your Colt. Too bad that poor family didn't have the option; it is Chicago, and all, and Mayor Daley knows what's best for you.

Remember kids, don't resist. Give them what they want, and it might be a good idea to leave your windows unlocked in case you need to make a quick getaway.
