    FL - Teen injured while protecting family from abusive stepfather

    A 19-year-old woman who saved her mother and four younger siblings from her shotgun-toting stepfather is being called a hero.

    But Delores Marcum is in serious condition at the hospital and her wounded leg could be amputated.

    Her mother says Delores is a hero for getting her family out a window when 69-year-old Howard Enfinger became distracted as police surrounded their house Saturday, but he shot her before she also fled. Enfinger is listed as stable.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Kids shouldn't have to face situations like this.... But I'm glad she was there to intervene.
