"(He) hit the phone out of my hand. He took a swing. At that point I kneed him in his private parts and his response was - 'That was pretty good,'" said Lovejoy.

It seems like either his testicles hadn't descended or she missed the mark. I've been told countless times that getting a knee to the groin isn't something men just shrug off, especially from someone who looks like that.

She looks a bit like my late Aunt Vera.

My aunt was a stocky woman, with a big, booming voice who had served in the Army in WW2. She swore like a trooper, never ran from a fight and had no problem with telling anyone her opinions. I suspect if the Army had sent her to the front during the war, it might have ended a few months quicker.

She was certainly a unique lady.

I'd love to have met your aunt. And I wanna meet this lady too.

And Subby, how dumb are you insulting the appearance of this woman? I'd be afraid she'd come find me. Clearly not someone to be farked with.

This is why the f**kin kids are winning this war..."I hope he gets a second chance." Really? This twerp was about to assault you and do God knows what, and you hope they treat him gently? Adults are not taking kids and the violence they commit seriously enough. We need to start being a lot harsher with our punishments and locking up these sociopaths for life. Who sticks around to try and beat up an old woman? Really? Only a monster in training would think of doing something like that.
Kids these days are not the little rascals they used to be people. Thanks to whatever we're putting in our food they've all turned into lumbering oafs that can and often do outweigh the average adult. They can do serious and even fatal harm to us when they are just "being kids and making their mistakes."

Nope. An old fashioned butt kicking is the best approach. Some kids are just plain bad. Every time he screws up, knock him down until he gets the message that a life of crime isn't the easy path. It may take a few times but I've seen this approach work, and the results are more or less permanent.

He GOT an old-fashioned butt-kicking, did you miss that part? Plus he got beat up by an old lady. And you need to be careful about the "every time he screws up knock him down" treatment. What he may well learn instead is that people are mean and arbitrary and don't give a shiat about him, so he better learn to knock people down first.

That approach only works if he ALSO gets pumped up every time he does something right. I've seen lots of the former, and very very little of the latter.

Or to be drunk, or on cocaine or the like, although the article would probably have mentioned if he was.

Moral of the story: a good stomp kick to the front of his knee is always better than trying to catch him in the groin.

We're supposed to be a civilized society. I shouldn't need to "learn to fight" or "buy a gun." As a functioning member of society I should have the right to be safe in my community, not have to worry that a bunch of teenage scum are going to viciously attack me just so they can post the video to YouTube. Do you know why they do it? It's because we've taught them that there are pretty much no consequences for their actions. Their penalties are a joke, slaps on the wrist. And then they know at 18 their records are sealed and they get to walk around with clean slates. F- that.
If a teen commits a crime, they should have to face the same penalties as an adult. Furthermore, if a teen commits a serious enough crime, their parents should also be tried as though they committed that crime.
It's time that we stopped giving kids a free pass. Have you seen those videos of kids beating up homeless people to sever injury? Or the random attacks they commit on strangers so that they can get it on video and post it to the net for their friends? It's sick.
I'm not saying treat every teen like a criminal, only the ones that you know, act like criminals.

"What are you going to do, beat up and old woman?" *ass-kicking commences* "Seriously, though, I hope he can get his life together."

That's actually a pretty cool picture. In 1979 my basic training company was one of the first to be integrated with a platoon of female soldiers. Guess which platoon took the Marksperson award in my company. I attribute it to the fact that women are not born with full knowledge of guns weapons like guys are, and are actually willing to listen to instruction. Seldom do you see a female soldier attempt to shoot their M-16 sideways. :)

That's too cool. I spent some time on PI and Camp LeJeune (and Pendleton, and was born at 29-Stumps) when I was a kid. My father was a career Marine. I had to look up the M-82. Now I'm hella jealous. I want one. Bad.

I taught marksmanship and demolitions in my engineer battalion. Women are much easier to teach than men. Your sister rocks!

I can't afford to lock them up so you'll feel safe. Take care of yourself, and stop coasting on my dime, welfare bum.

We're supposed to be a civilized society...


"The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I don't necessarily think you are wrong, but I think that a large part of why people today feel so emboldened to commit acts of violence is that there are no serious consquences.

Jail? Phffft. When you look at some of the conditions many of these teens come from, jail is a flippin' cakewalk.

Jail is not a deterrent.

If law abiding citizens were allowed to defend themselves (and I'm not talking Zimmerman-type defending themselves) then THAT would be a deterrent. But they aren't. Or if they are, that right is so tied up in the vagueness of law that they are afraid to defend themselves for fear that they will be arrested and charged as well.

No, it's not, but it's also nowhere near West Seattle, where this incident occurred.


30/Roxbury is quite near White Center, and also considered W Seattle by real estate agents.

She looks a bit like my late cousin Alice. She was 6' tall, 250 lbs and taught almost 30 years in the public schools in Rockford, IL. You did not want to get her pissed off, as her two sons and many students learned the hard way.

miss diminutive: "(He) hit the phone out of my hand. He took a swing. At that point I kneed him in his private parts and his response was - 'That was pretty good,'" said Lovejoy.

It seems like either his testicles hadn't descended or she missed the mark. I've been told countless times that getting a knee to the groin isn't something men just shrug off, especially from someone who looks like that.


Well, it also takes a few moments. And the worse the hit, the longer the lag time in my experience.

Once kicked my brother flat out in the balls (we fought a lot). He smiled and came at me again. It wasn't until a good twenty seconds after that he curled up moaning and didn't get up for a good ten minutes. I've had similar experiences. A light tap is almost instant pain, a good hard one can take a while to sink in.

He GOT an old-fashioned butt-kicking, did you miss that part? Nope, I was following up that it was the right thing to do at the right time.
Plus he got beat up by an old lady. I applaud her for doing what needed to be done.

And you need to be careful about the "every time he screws up knock him down" treatment. What he may well learn instead is that people are mean and arbitrary and don't give a shiat about him, so he better learn to knock people down first. That approach only works if he ALSO gets pumped up every time he does something right. I've seen lots of the former, and very very little of the latter.

A valid point but today too many judges and social services don't do the former. They just pump the kid up, tell them it's not their fault - it's society's fault, feed their egos, continue to let them slack off in school and not be held accountable for results. A balanced approach is best but that's not what we're getting now. Tough love is still tough first. We had a perfect example here in Tampa. Some kid started getting into trouble when he was 12 stealing cars and breaking and entering. A juvie court judge kept turning him loose and he kept coming back for bigger crimes. Finally he would up in the middle of a drug deal where a baby was killed. In the end, he would up dead on the street at 22 or 23, caught in the middle of a gun fight between two other people. A totally wasted life caused by leniency and Dr Spock thinking in the courts.

UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: AirborneBuckeye: Yeah, like you KNOW what a real soldier is. Semper Fi, Mac!!!!

That's actually a pretty cool picture. In 1979 my basic training company was one of the first to be integrated with a platoon of female soldiers. Guess which platoon took the Marksperson award in my company. I attribute it to the fact that women are not born with full knowledge of guns weapons like guys are, and are actually willing to listen to instruction. Seldom do you see a female soldier attempt to shoot their M-16 sideways. :)


Using an M-16 does require a bit of training. They're not clones of regular hunting rifles, and definitely different from shotguns or handguns. I'm sure plenty of male soldiers let their egos hold them back from taking instruction and learning how to really use the M-16 well.

As for why the women did better? When I was in basic in 1983, women were not allowed to do any hand-to-hand (pugil sticks and fist fightin') combat training. While all the male soldiers were spending days on that, all the female soldiers spent their time at the firing range -- so we got twice as much marksmanship training as the males did. And yes, we did get the marksmanship award for the battalion.

Yeah, sorry about that. Why, back in my day, West Seattle was cool (Alki, etc.) and White Center was ... not. In my mind, they're far apart.

I was lucky in that respect, because my father had familiarized my brother and I from about the age of nine with M-16s, M-60's and the .50. He used to bring home captured chi-com weapons and break them down, disable them and make display pieces of them for recruiting stations.

I got in trouble the first day we were issued M-16s in basic. We were in a classroom, and the instructor said "Don't do ANYTHING until I tell you to, and then looked and I had mine disassembled already. He told me "That's great, shiatbird, but I KNOW you can't put it back together correctly", so I reassembled it. From then on he always called me Private Smartass, but he always used me for a demonstrator.

The only time I didn't qualify Expert with the M-16 was in basic, but my sister is a way better shot than I am, and I've seen my grandmother shoot two peacocks with two shots on the fly with a .22. So I have no problem conceding that women can make great shooters.

/at least I don't throw grenades like a girl :)

It has been known almost since thebeginning of the paintball industry that women are naturally better shots. I attribute it to their lack of testosterone. For them it's more of a mechanical action, and they don't need to prove anything to their friends - so they don't worry about missing the shot.

A soldier is somebody who is in the Army. Somebody in the Marine Corps is a MARINE.
