Someone needs to plant a flaming bag of poop on her doorstep to see if she explodes.
 
2014-01-31 08:09:12 PM  
This should be legal.
 
2014-01-31 08:11:29 PM  
Well, that escalated quickly.

But atleast she didn't shoot them like a guy in my area did.
 
2014-01-31 08:13:43 PM  
She's got the crazy eyes.  Don't annoy people with the crazy eyes.
 
2014-01-31 08:13:58 PM  
She was just standing her ground.
 
2014-01-31 08:14:33 PM  
I will enjoy crazy peopleconservatives telling me how she was totally justified in her actions.
 
2014-01-31 08:15:09 PM  
See, this lady should have had a gun. If she had simply shot them all then there wouldn't be any problem.

At least you remembered to capitalize 'Boys' after looting the very first sentence of the article, submitter. Very original.

I see nothing wrong here.

If only it were possible to do this to telemarketers.

Well, on the bright side, those boys will probably never pranks doorbells again.

There are several Jehovah's Witnesses buried beneath her front steps.
 
2014-01-31 08:18:29 PM  
I probably wouldn't have reacted quite like she did, but I understand where she's coming from.

I applaud these kids for pushing this lady over the edge so she can spend time in prison where she belongs. Too bad we have to wait until someone completely loses control before we're allowed to lock them away.
 
2014-01-31 08:19:53 PM  
To be fair, she was on her period . . .

This is what's wrong with America. People can nag and bother and perturb you all they want, but the moment you try to murder them, all of a sudden  you're the criminal.

This is what leads to our degenerate culture of disrespect.

Because the mentally unstable don't deserve their peace, I'm guessing.
 
2014-01-31 08:23:12 PM  
So a crazy lady gets taken out of society and some bratty kids learn that being a douche has consequences. Sounds like a win/win to me.

Hell yeah, I mean, I'm an adult living in another country and I kinda want to go there just to ring the doorbell and run.

/they actually did write her address in TFA...

99.9% chance they'll now goad classmates into pranking her place.

I DARE YOU!

Bonus: You know she's in jail right now since there's NO WAY someone will spring her on a 100k bond; you could do all sorts of fun stuff, then videotape her reaction upon getting home from the pokey. Youtube gold!

Hey, if her lawyer wants to argue that she has a mental condition go for it.

Almost.  You have to make sure they are dead them and then say you felt threatened.  That's the only way to get real American justice.

Yeah you need at least $500 million minimum to be free in America there days ... and that's with the family lawyer on retainer and at least 1/5th of a Congressman paid for.

Problem: the kids in tfa are Hispanic. I think that trick only works if they're black.
 
2014-01-31 08:31:38 PM  
Her lawyer should totally argue that she thought she was a cop and therefore was clinically insane like they all are and since she was a cop she is therefore not guilty and immune to prosecution. Claim that an independent investigation done by the neighbors cat found no evidence of wrongdoing on her part and ask that she be free to go.

She needs to be in a mental ward, but I'm confident she won't get any kind of free medical services- that's not the way our system works. Nah, she'll do some time and be released and then either reoffend or be killed by someone else. She's a little too crazy to last very long. Imagine if that dad had owned a gun?

Someday she'll meet someone who has a gun.
 
2014-01-31 08:32:43 PM  
I'd say that's a great lesson to learn. Don't randomly mess with crazy... and at least one of your neighbors is crazy.
 
2014-01-31 08:33:30 PM  
She looks like that chick who was harassing the disabled girl's family a couple of years ago.  Different town/state, but still.

If more young people were chased by crazy women with knives, we wouldn't have the obesity epidemic that we have now.

I'm 40, but would volunteer to tp her house just to see her reaction and film it.

I somehow doubt the kids learned any lesson. I'm not condoning her actions, but there really ought to be some kind of consequence from the law for the kids. I don't know if this woman is batshiat crazy of she was having the worst day of her life and these kids were just the last straw, either way they're the ones who drove her to do what she did and there should be legal consequences for it.
