I love the stories when people fight back and the gutless wonder bad guys are seen for
what they are.

Gutless swine that run when confronted, even two dudes to 1 young female.

I am so glad she kicked their sorry ass I just wish I was their with a baseball bat to get in some swinging practice.

You all better WATCH OUT, or the anti-gun groups will start up ANTI-BATON TWIRLER GROUPS TO GET THOSE DANGEROUS WEAPONS OFF THE STREETS!!(ha, ha.)
They might go after marching band drum majors, while they are at it.

Seriously, if they are able bodied enough to mug someone, why couldnt they find a job like everyone else, even if it was flipping burgers?

Good for her!! Those ignorant thugs got more than they ever bargained for, and I hope nobody ever lets them forget it.

You didn't read the article, did you? The girl ran off, not her two assailants.

After she kicked their ass first my friend the two pigs were in pain,why would she not run away after?

I read this!
The girl punched one of the men in the nose, kicked the other in the groin and beat both with her large baton before she ran away on Friday morning, officials said.

The two scum bags were totally gutless human waist.

Hay have a great day my friend (:

Too stupid I guess, they'd be the idiots using their hands to flip the burgers while scalding themselves.

Batons don't kill people, people kill people. Legalize fully-automatic assault batons.

Next the Supreme Court will have to consider whether a two day waiting period and background check to buy a band baton violates the Second Amendment.

I think that it's possible that the girl just over reacted and was never in danger in the first place. There are no witnesses and the two guys are no where to be found. I know it just warms the heart to hear about someone who is violent to women get what's coming to them, and it's also nice for women to hear these stories so they feel like they can protect themselves but it seems like there is more to the story. I once tried to ask a woman at a train station for directions and she brandished one of these self defese batons on her keychain and told me to leave her alone. I left her alone all right but in her mind she probably defended herself and intimidated a violent attacker.

Nothing like a feel good story to brighten a rainy day in April!

Come to think of it, isn't there a martial arts weapon like a baton, but with handles that allow the grasshopper to do a forearm smash with a hard, unyielding piece of wood, as well as whack the bad guy like a billy club?

The marching band girls might be more talented than we imagined.

Because common sense tells me that after the attempt to rob the girl and she appears to have defended her self, the two a-holes would not stay near the crime area , even with the wounds she gave them they would know the cops would be looking for them so I would think they would try to leave the area as fast as their beat ass would take them.

Sometimes you can think beyond the basic words of the story friend just think and reason.

any way I hope the two a-holes are caught and jailed for this kind of thing.
