Default Granny shoots an armed robber

This was the second time this robber tried to rob this lady. And the last time.

and when she says she doesnt want to be identified they give a full description of her, post the block and street she lives on and then posts a picture of her house. Yeah great article. Good for her, but the damn reporter should now be shot.

But he was just turning his life around. He was stealing the money to pay for college.

Yeah. This isn't too cool. Look how much we all know about her now that she doesn't need exposed.

Another thanks to our media.

On edit:
Well, the cat is out of the bag. Here are more details and worth reading. The lady feels terrible but should be respected for what she did.

I bet he was robbing that old lady to help pay for his Grandmothers medications. If there was any money left he was going to use it for tuition and books. His grandmother needed a lot of energy drinks and Robitussin.

Great story. And now that woman has to live with the heartbreak of having killed someone to defend herself and her family because the 16 year old chose the wrong path to follow. I admire her and yet feel so bad for her.

Winds, sometimes I wish I could conger up that kind of emotion but he threatened her and hers at gunpoint! Good riddance is the best I can do.
Bad actions have bad consequences as they should.
