Mother Fights Off Intruder Who Came Into Her Home Trying to Take Her Two Sons

What's Going On



BY:  John “Hennry” Harris

There is a theory that was first described by Walter Bradford Cannon called the fight-or-flight response which is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a real or perceived harmful event, attack or threat to survival.

When Shandrea Smith, of Dekalb County, GA, encountered Musa Lang allegedly attempting a home invasion and allegedly trying to snatch her two young children, Smith decided to choose fight over flight. Smith reportedly fought Lang well enough that he decided to leave the premises.

Lang reportedly walked into Smith’s home in broad daylight through the front door while Smith and her two young boys, ages 3 and 6, were upstairs.  Lang, who Smith says she does not know, reportedly told Smith that SHE had taken the boys from HIM and he was there to claim them.

Lang then left Smith’s bedroom and went to where the boys were playing and snatched the boys by their arms.  Well, this is where “fight-or-flight” kicked in.

Smith told WSB-TV, “That’s when I kind of just lost it a little bit.”  Smith reportedly grabbed the suspect — who at this point allegedly placed one of the boy’s backpacks over his head — hit, and then pushed him, wrestling the backpack from Lang and forcing the intruder out of her home.

Lang, 33, took flight from the home, running down the street.  Jean-Claude Thomas, a neighbor, heard the mother yelling, “My kids, my kids”, and caught the subject at a nearby fast food restaurant where he held Lang until the police arrived.

“We’re neighbors, we have to do the right thing, we couldn’t just let him get away.”

Smith is elated that her two children are safe and feels she made the right decision to fight her assailant.

“It was either let him go and let him do this to someone else or go after him.”

Lang is at the Dekalb County jail he is facing kidnapping and burglary charges.

Which would you choose ?  To fight ? Or to flight ?
