FW: "Rambo Granny" If only there were millions more like her!

"Rambo Granny" If only there were millions more like her!


Hot off the press from Australia. You GOTTA Love This!

The Rambo Granny of Melbourne, Australia, Gun-toting granny Ava Estelle, 81, was so ticked-off when two thugs raped her 18-year-old granddaughter that she tracked the unsuspecting ex-cons down - - and shot off their testicles.

The old lady spent a week hunting those men down -- and when she found them, she took revenge on them in her own special way, said Melbourne police investigator Evan Delp. Then she took a taxi to the nearest police station, laid the gun on the sergeant's desk and told him as calm as could be:

"Those bastards will never rape anybody again, by God."

Cops say convicted rapist and robber Davis Furth, 33, lost both his penis and his testicles when outraged Ava opened fire with a 9-mm pistol in the hotel room where he and former prison cellmate Stanley Thomas, 29, were holed up. The wrinkled avenger also blew Thomas' testicles to kingdom come, but doctors managed to save his mangled penis, police said. The one guy, Thomas, didn't lose his manhood, but the doctor I talked to said he won't be using it the way he used to, Detective Delp told reporters. Both men are still in pretty bad shape, but I think they're just happy to be alive after what they've been through.

The Rambo Granny swung into action August 21 after her granddaughter Debbie was carjacked and raped in broad daylight by two knife-wielding creeps in a section of town bordering on skid row. "When I saw the look on my Debbie's face that night in the hospital, I decided I was going to go out and get those bastards myself 'cause I figured the Law would go easy on them," recalled the retired library worker. "And I wasn't scared of them, either-- because I've got me a gun and I've been shootin' all my life. And I wasn't dumb enough to turn it in when the law changed about owning one."

So, using a police artist's sketch of the suspects and Debbie's description of the sickos', tough-as-nails Ava spent seven days prowling the wino-infested neighborhood where the crime took place till she spotted the ill fated rapists entering their flophouse hotel.

I knew it was them the minute I saw 'em, but I shot a picture of 'em anyway and took it back to Debbie and she said sure as hell, it was them, the oldster recalled. So I went back to that hotel and found their room and knocked on the door and the minute the big one, Furth, opened the door, I shot 'em right square between the legs, right where it would really hurt 'em most, you know. Then I went in and shot the other one as he backed up pleading to me to spare him. Then I went down to the police station and turned myself in.

Now, baffled lawmen are trying to figure out exactly how to deal with the vigilante granny. What she did was wrong, and she broke the law, but it is difficult to throw an 81-year-old woman in prison, Det. Delp said, especially when 3 million people in the city want to nominate her for sainthood and a medal.
I shall pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

I don't even need to go to Snopes for a debunk;
this has been circling the net for years.

All too common RW response: 'some websites say
this is false but it MIGHT be true.'

And George Bush MIGHT be smart. Who knows?

The final paragraph is a fairly strange addition considering it is a quote often attributed to the Quaker William Penn. But the idea that taking revenge on your granddaughter's rapists is a "kindness" ?? wtf. Taking revenge might be satisfying, justified, or illegal, but to call it "kindness" is the product of a disturbed mind.

Originated in a tabloid in 1998, this tale of vigilante "justice" isn't even correct in the use of colloquial Australian English, plus the PD in Melbourne wouldn't be scratching their heads over "what to do" w/this purported granny; they'd toss her in jail where she belongs.

We can all get a secret giggle out of urban legends like this and feel some sense of vindication, but really vigilantism is never correct or the right way to behave. I would have less concern except it's sent out by rightists to their credulous email recipients, who will take it as truth and as a "good" way to act.

I agree with Bebe that the final paragraph is quite weird in context of what goes before it. It's like someone is trying to tack on some kind of chrisitanist justification for this kind of behavior, which is creepy. Plus the yahoo attitude towards guns and shooting off genitalia is also yuck-making.

Ho-hum, same old, different day.

So, in other words, it's the plot of "The Brave One," only starring Margaret Thatcher in place of Jodi Foster. Got it.

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
