Criminals are like a pride of lions at work. Ever vigilant, looking for the weakest member of the herd of potential prey. Most of the time they are damn good at it, too..
But Not always.
The weakest-appearing is not always the weakest.
Cane and Able
Here’s the story from myfoxphilly.com, “8 o’clock in the morning…come on!!!
Anita stood on her porch yelling, “8 o’clock in the morning? Come on!”
Hours after the crime, she still can’t believe a brazen early morning burglar popped off the screen to her front window and tried to climb into her Ford Avenue home.
But the burglar learned the hard way, Anita is the wrong woman to mess with.
“I saw him put his foot in, his butt in, his in, his face in, and then this (waving her cane) took care of him.”
The attack sent him running through a neighbors yard.
“I started whacking,” Anita showed us thrusting her cane toward the ground. “My dad told me a long time ago if the Bible don’t’ get you the cane will get you.”
Anita says one things for sure, thanks to her dad’s self defense training before he died, she’ll be ready if the crooks come back.
When asked if she thinks that learned their lesson, she responded: “Honey! if they don’t’ know it now they never will.”
Lucky to Be Alive
Another thing…it’s takes a special kind of Dumbass to break into someone’s in the broad daylight. And a front window! It seems to me that a more scientific approach to this burglary would have been much more effective. And by “scientific”, I of course mean at night through a back window. But then again, I have never had an uncontrollable urge to bust into someone else’s house and steal all their valuables, so what do I know?
I do know that an armed society is a polite society and I wish Anita would have sent this idjit to the ER with an ass full of buck shot for making the mistake of unlawfully entering her house. On the other hand, the way Anita swings a cane, a gun may have been overkill. Maybe.
A Fearless Leader can dream can’t he?
