71 yr old Woman Strikes Back and Arrested

August 18, 2009

I just received this email news from someone in my home town (names were removed) ….

“A 71 year old women was being held in jail without bond Tuesday after County authorities said she beat her husband over the head with a frying pan.

Deputies responded to an assault call Friday morning and found paramedics treating her husband, 85 yrs old, for head injuries. A spokesman from the County Sheriff’s Office determined that the husband and his wife had argued over what she had cooked for breakfast.

The couple continued to bicker as the wife cooked another meal, and the argument escalated to the point that the husband raised his cane as if he were ready to hit his wife. The wife then hit him on the head several times with an iron frying pan.

The wife was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, and authorities said she was being held without bond because the charge stemmed from a domestic dispute. The husband was taken to a local Regional Medical Center, where he received 50 stitches to close his head wounds.”

One responded, “Too many Madea movies…………seriously, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE KNOWS NO COLOR, NO SEX, NO AGE.” Would your agree? My thought is this….Women are tired of being threatened and abused. Women have to fight back no matter how old they are. Sorry to say that she had to hurt him. But, just to think that she is 71 yrs old. How long did she deal with physical abuse…20, 30, 40, 50+ years!! Now, that’s terrible! …just terrible! What are your thoughts?
