Don't "F" with old people!!

I learned this from my Grandparents and older relatives (one of my aunts chased a shoplifter through a Houston shopping mall and held him at gunpoint until the cops got there) years ago!

Now this thug in California knows it to!  31 year old Brandon Perez had prior crimes including burglary and narcotics charges. He was on parole and staying at a halfway house not far from the house he attempted to break into.

Jan Cooper, a 72 year old grandmother, lives in the house with her 85 year old husband. (He's a WW II veteran, confined to a wheelchair.)  Jan called 911 but also armed herself when she heard Perez sneaking around.  When he got to her sliding door, while on the phone with 911, she yelled at him and fired.  While cussing up a storm apparently!

She said:

I am a Christian woman and I'm very proud of it and I don't curse, but after I shot, rage took hold and I just blasted away." "And, in fact, afterwards my husband said, 'I've never heard you talk like that!'"

Her husband Bob was asked if he was surprised at Jans reaction and if she had learned what to do from him and/or his military service.  He said:

"I'm not surprised at all, not one bit." I know her capabilities and what she can do if she has to."

Good for you Jan!  We need more people like you!!
