Grandma Free and Clear

  • A 12-year-old boy who was shot in the arm by a woman upset at the boy for throwing bricks at her South Shore home has been charged with assault, police said Wednesday.

    The boy, along with another 13-year-old boy, were each charged with one count of misdemeanor aggravated assault to a senior citizen.

    The 68-year-old woman was released from police custody without being charged because she acted in self defense, police said.

Hopefully, she got her gun back. And hopefully, she gets herself a shotgun for the next time.

Anyone catch the shit they slipped in about granny shooting at the boy because she was "upset" with him for throwing bricks. I'd call that justified self defense for an old woman to shoot at two thugs who are attaking her in her own home with the intentions to do god knows what else...I dunno, that wording just seems inappropriate.

Once again, the media has seen fit to plaster this poor woman's address all over the place. The unfortunate and ugly truth is, someone is gonna take it upon themselves to go after this woman, to exact some sort of twisted justice for his "homeboy."

To bad granny didn't take out that POS!

It's nice when something right happens.

Is it just me or is anyone else sick the f*** of hearing about Rahm Emanuel? All that I've ever read about him is that he is a foul tempered, potty mouth, vindictive little bastard. I'm not sure he can run for mayor, he isn't a city resident anymore. He can vote here, he just can't run for elective office because he is a resident somewhere near DC. Before anyone pipes up that he is working for the us government, that law is for US veterans that are serving overseas for the US government, this little weasel works for the President of the US, not the US Government. He is not an official of the US government, he is Chief of Staff for POTUS.

Had I been assigned to that case as a homicide dick, I have no doubt what my colleagues and I would have done after our tour of duty.

We'd take Lady Margaret out for a martini or three after treating her to the tastiest barbecued ribs on the South Side.

No olives in her martinis until she improves her marksmanship.

God bless Margaret Matthews.

What about the Sgt. that lives in 017/ a banger throws a brick through his house window, gets chased and apprehended. Some beef was made. Don't know what ever happened, but initially it sounded like they wanted to strip the guy. Should he have gone outside, confronted him with a pistol and shot him? What about the Marine corp. sgt that wasted the punk walking a pitbull/walking weapon? Im happy granny is ok, but make it fair for everyone ..

Hey SCC:

Did you notice how much the aftermath of this is paralleling Joe the Cop's Ghetto Shooting Template? The kid's family say he's an angel, was just walking by when Granny shot him for no reason. Astounding.

The elder "Annie Oakley" should get a DPMS "Sportical" 5.56x45mm carbine with 30 round magazines loaded with Hornady 55 grain V-Max ammo. It would be easier to shoot than a handgun, more accurate than a shotgun, and the little toad wouldn't have walked away.

WGN interviewed some people 'around the neighborhood" and they got someone to say "shootin' kids ain't right".

Well, moron, teach your kids some respect.

No one said, "throwing rocks and intimidating seniors ain't right".

Mrs Matthews had an unregistered firearm and no CFP.

she was INSIDE her home and fired a weapon against a mob assault coming from the OUTSIDE.

Mrs Matthews has the constitutionally acknowledged and guarenteed RIGHT to self-defense.

She has this right REGARDLESS of whatever fees and requirements are illegally and unconstitutionally forced upon her.

This senario played out like a "castle doctrine" senario for once, and I hope other shitheads an various base creatures crawling around chicago are paying attention.

Mrs Matthews refused to be a victim, and for that, she is a hero.

Thanks to all those in law-enforcement that see this for what it is. Thanks for protecting Mrs Matthews rights!

All you right-thinkers out there who understand the importance of our our right to gun ownership and self-defense, wether you are a cop or citizen, please help by becomeing a memeber of the NRA, ISRA, GOA, SAF today!

2 or 3 of these little fuckers need to be shot by senior citizens per day to put some fear into them.

Fuckin' animals need to fear bad shit happening to them, period!

"Im happy granny is ok, but make it fair for everyone"

I hear you!

and I hate to make this argument, because its weak....not to mention, old and busted and losing effectiveness, but you can bet, if Mrs Matthews wasn't an old black woman, there'd be hell to pay, and we'd have to hear from flapperheads like snuffy and the other candy-ass street preachers for the next few weeks over this......

The thing I like about this, is it sets precedence!

If Mrs Matthews can fire upon "urban terrorists" from inside her home, using an unregistered weapon, without a CFP while standing her ground, not feeling any obligation to retreat ....it means that if I should feel my life life is threatened, or the lives of any guest or family member is threatened inside MY home, I can respond in similar fashion without the fear that I will be prosecuted for doing so.

That's why this is so important.

JUSTICE was served here, and I thank law enforcement involved in this case for seeing this through in a manner not many of us in this city are used to.

Too bad Granny didn't shoot to kill. The little darling and his
friends might return again or, his
loving handlers might sue her.
The neighbors were saying to the
media, " she didn't have to shoot
him, all he did was throw rocks at
her house. "
Yeah, Granny was lucky he wasn't
throwing "hot lead" at her house.

Like who? The convicted felons and Gang members?

This is the way it will be handled everytime a (honest/non-criminal type)person acts in self defense. Have confidence in your local law enforcement Officers / Detectives. We call it as we see it. Dont expect the same result if your a drug dealing thug and someone tries to rob your spot....

The City makes you jump through hoops with the fees and such.... All that City ordinace crap is out the window when your lifes being threatened. Protect yourself when necessary, just dont go overboard, over react or become the aggressor.

Call the Police and let us handle it first though.... One screw up and bottom feeding lawyers and prison are waiting for you...

She might have been, and probably was, aiming at "center mass." Not everyone is a marksman, but it sounds like she did the best she could. She just needs more practice at the range. Making statements like "shoot to kill" is a good way to go to prison or lose everything you have or ever will have. The words to use, if you say anything to law enforcement, are: "I shot to stop the attack. I was in fear for my life."
