Woman foils home intruder

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
This courageous woman in Florida when an armed intruder covered in blood came into her home, got the man some dinner, suggested he take a shower, got him drunk, told him he couldn't drive home under those conditions. She got him to let her call a cab, the cabbie called 911 and the man is in jail! LOL I saw it on Good Morning America it was a testament to her resolve to stay calm and focused and get out alive.

That is something my grandmother would have done. She did surprise a burglar once, and sat him down and gave him breakfast, then packed up a suitcase with clothes for him.

Of course, we all thought she was crazy. For that and a whole bunch of other reasons.

This was in Tampa where I live. Actually, it was 2 old ladies. They fed him half a bottle of rum until he passed out and called 911. Gotta hand it to these 2 courageous grannies!

A group of Catholic school girls chased down, caught, and beat the crap out of some degenerate who had flashed them several times. Is this more your kind of news story, Cindy?

Me, too katl8e!
I thought I had the dumbest criminal ever! This guy thought I was someone else, pointed a gun at me, and made me get in his car. I was young and foolish then or I would have never gone along quietly. He got out of the car on a dark back road, leaving the keys in the ignition! I locked all the doors, backed over him, and took off. I guess I am just lucky, that was the second time I had come out on top of a life threatening situation.
I just loved the story about the school girls! Girls aren't nearly as helpless as they were when people my age were in school. We were still programmed that we shouldn't hurt anyone.

I loved that story Deb!

The principal said that they went too far and they shouldn't have attacked the man, but the girls said that their friends and teachers are treating them like heros. And that their parents are proud of them.

wow I could have never done anything like that.

What a fab story - just like a woman to" think outside the box" and use the old grey matter. Good for her!

Why shouldn't women fight back? If you can fight back or get away, without being killed - I say go for it!

I grew up in a household, with three younger brothers and learned how to fight. Mom threw a fit - "Girls aren't supposed to fight." THAT'S why she let Daddy beat on her, for years. Not me - I hit back and I fight dirty: teeth, fingernails and pointy-toed boots. In addition, at the age of 10, I was given a gun and taught how and when to use it.

Women should learn to defend themselves. Face it - most of us don't have the upper body strength, for hand-to-hand with a man but, we think more clearly under stress and can beat 'em with brain power.

Bravo for the school girls! I missed the story but am sure glad that women no longer have to play weak and fragile in society like in the old days-
