    Well if the kids were walking on her lawn or making too much noise around her house she has probably fixed the problem. After this chances are they kids (assuming they are small kids and not 15-17 year "children") will stay the heck away from her.

    Why assume anything that is not in the article? I've read several other articles on the case and there is absolutely nothing to indicate the children had caused any problems for this women before her actions.

    A chain saw? she went way over the line and is the one charged with a felony. It's also disturbing that she was taking pictures and filming the children prior to this.

    Charges dropped

    August 2013, charges dropped.

    Lincoln County prosecutor Leah Askey told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that charges against 50-year-old Lynn Marie Herzog of Winfield were dismissed after a grand jury failed to indict her.

    Herzog claims the children had thrown rocks at her home in the past, but Fleming argues that Herzog's response to the supposed rocks was excessive.

    Ohhh, she was already wearing an open faced ski mask and sawing up a fallen tree when this happened. So she didn't go and get the chainsaw just to scare the kids with. Just shows you how the media can twist things - some articles even had a picture of Leatherback from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to illustrate this story!

    And I bet she has only photographed/ filmed the neighbourhood kids in the past to get evidence because they were throwing rocks at her house or whatever.

    Neighbor, Patty Fleming, said Herzog had been sawing a tree that came down during a recent storm; Herzog was wearing an open-faced ski mask.

    “I come out of my door and hear her screaming at the kids. The boys start walking and she starts walking towards them with her skull mask and her chain saw, shaking it like she was going to hurt the kids,” Fleming said.
