As she readied herself for work early one morning, Mary
Schrader heard terror-stricken shouts emanating from the driveway of
her East Lake, Florida, home. She, too, was filled with terror when
she realized the voice was that of her husband, Dennis, who was
preparing to get into his car and leave for the day. Two men
wearing masks and clad in black clothing had accosted and
pistol-whipped Scrader then attempted to enter the couple's home by
using him as a shield. By then, Mary Schrader was ready. She set
off the alarm and armed herself with a .22-cal. rifle, finally
forcing the intruders to stand down and flee. Fresh in the
Schraders' minds was a recent incident in which a local couple had
been robbed, kidnapped and locked in the trunk of their car.
