    Don't mess with old people. We've already put up with all of the BS that we're going too in life.

    Good for her.

    Yay for the woman! I noticed in the article that car went from being a 2002 red Taurus to a 1990 red Taurus. How did they revert the car to an earlier model!??

    Another fine example of our medias' "accuracy" in reporting?

    Good on her!

    No doubt the DPD will advise citizens not to what she did.

    Years from now (hopefully many) Detroit will see "For sale: S&W Nickel plated 38 revolver, only taken to church and grocery, used once, never fired"

    Sounds like she staved off a bad day from getting worse. It also sounds real close to assult with a firearm too. Good on her for keeping her head and acting without reservation but be careful as well.
