Now it takes a REAL man to attack an 85 yr old woman. Glad she is okay and that she fought back. He probably expected the ol' girl to be an easy mark. Too bad this didn't happen in the presence of some folks who would have made sure that he "resisted arrest".

You go granny!! These days you almost have to fight back, because the way things are going, if you don't take a chance and fight back, you will most likely end up dead. Like I said before, once night I was approached by a man walking in a parking lot and he wanted to carry my bags, I started cussing as loud as I could to make people stop and look. He got scared and ran off. Then people came over to make sure I was alright and walk me to my car. People are just crazy these day. I am glad this woman had the gutts to fight back. God speed her recovery.

I love it when it is a seemingly defenseless person who helps to stop the thieves (or worse). I wish she would have had a gun and shot him though, then it would have been an even better story.

I'd like about five minutes alone in a cell with him and grandma. I'd hold his sorry behind down while she shoved a police baton up his azz.

I'm so glad to hear that this lady is okay, and that she fought back. These days people have to stand up for themselves, because noone else will. Maybe when more people start standing up for themselves, it will deter some people from commiting senseless crimes. I'm so tired of these no good thugs that think they own the damned place.

I just find it hard to believe that someone could attack an elderly person. It breaks my heart to hear of such things. But, thank goodness this woman fought back and I hope she will be fine. Way to go, Grandma!
