I\'ve been sitting on this one for awhile, not sure if I should post it. Someone sent this story on a retired library worker in AU. I can\'t verify where it came from, or if it\'s even real, but I just can\'t resist.
MELBOURNE, Australia-Gun-toting granny Ava Estelle, 81, was so ticked-off
when two thugs raped her 18-year-old grand daughter that she tracked the
unsuspecting ex-cons down - - and shot their testicles off! \"The old lady
spent a week hunting those bums down-and when she found them, she took
revenge on them in her own special way,\" said admiring 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.\' Read more if you dare....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 seedy
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, policy 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 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 police 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\' it all my life.\"
So, using a police artist\'s sketch of the suspects and Debbie\'s
description of the sickos\' car, 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 know
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 ornery
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 got right square between the legs, right where it would really
hurt \'em most, you know.
Then I went down to the police station and turned myself in.\" Now, baffled
lawmen are tying to figure out how to deal with the vigilante granny.
\"What she did was wrong, but you can\'t really throw an 81-year-old woman
in prison.\" Det. Delp said, \"especially when all 3 million people in the
city want to nominate her for sainthood.\"
