79-Year-Old Shoots Two Intruders, Police Say
Homeowner Says Men Kicked In His Back Door At 5 A.M.

POSTED: 12:09 pm EDT July 9, 2005
UPDATED: 11:13 pm EDT July 9, 2005

DRY RIDGE, Ky. -- A 79-year-old man armed with a .357 magnum revolver shot two men after they broke into his home overnight, News 5's Bina Roy reported.




Police answering a call about a break-in and burglary found two men shot outside a home on Ellen Kay Drive in Grant County.

The homeowner told police the two men kicked in his back door just before 5 a.m. Saturday. They tried to flee after being shot.

Police said they found one wounded man in the driveway and followed a trail of blood to the other man nearby.

Nearby residents were stunned but supported their neighbor's actions.

"At that time in the morning, if I was in that situation, I might try to do the same thing," Everett Musgrave told News 5. "I am glad he was able to protect himself. That's the big thing. At least he's not hurt."

"He's old school," Lisa Garner said of her neighbor. "My grandfather would have done the same thing.

"It bothers me because we have children. It bothers me that anybody would intrude into your home," Garner said.

Musgrave had a message for anybody thinking about breaking into somebody's home.

"Yeah, don't pick the wrong door," Musgrave said.

AirCare helicopters flew the men to Grant County Hospital. Their names and conditions have not been released.

I would much rather hear your thoughts than a cut and paste of some reporters thoughts.

I think that if he were 10 years youger we would not have to pay for the care and feeding of these lowlifes for the next ten or so years. His hand might have been a bit steadier

Thank you, much more interesting. I agree, although I think the old guy did pretty good getting both of them. There are always hospital infections, so we may still have a chance.

All I can say is - if you have a gun, keep it loaded, otherwise you might as well throw it at them.

Good for him.  People should be able to protect their lives, homes and property without jumping through a bunch of crap like we have to do up here in Massachusetts.

The old guy is good but he didn't top my personal hero.

Gun-toting Granny!

Shoots off rapers’ testicles

The crooks were surprised this nice lady did not turn in all weapons when
gun control was declared in Australia.... were they surprised!!!

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 male organ
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 male organ, 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 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 sicko's, 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 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.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)
