    Defiant 76-year-old woman dies in shootout with gang of three

    I wish after being robbed and being in the habit of carrying large sums of money at night that she would have traveled with a couple friends. (Backups)



    Ms Hendrix, who volunteered at a bingo club, had applied for a carry and conceal weapon and learned to shoot after being robbed outside the same home in 2011.

    Interesting that the papers in England pick up on these stories isn't it?

    I think there are papers in England that are tired of people having to be sheep and want people to get their guns back so they can start fighting back.

    At some point we all become too old to run. I believe this lady not afraid to die and she wasn't afraid to rid this world of trash before she went.

    Where is the article from Jesse and Al, stating the deceased is at fault because she started shooting when the three innocent children approached her to get directions to the nearest church?

    Good for this ol' girl exercising her rights and refusing to be a 'willing victim' and believing a call to 911 would change anything... even if they did show up.

    Her example will remain in the minds of every Criminal out there, for a very long time.

    Dang! It ain't even safe to rob an old woman in her 70s anymore. Her message is now "Out There".

    What a grand lady. Her bravery should be an inspiration for us all. She refused to be a victim once again. What a shame these dirtbags chose to end her life.

    She may have been the victim, but she went down swinging in a pile of brass.

    Tough lady, it's a shame she had to pass away. I hope the three dirtbags never see the light of day.

    Hopefully these animals will never see the light of day. I would not be surprised to read about one of them committing a violent crime while out on bail for this crime.

    It never ceases to amaze me how some families can choose such atrocious names for their kids. This scum sucking dog named
    Bradatious should have been named Atrocious especially since he chose a life of crime.

    While it's too bad she only got off one or two rounds at least she managed to gut shoot one of the thugs. I hope the maggot dies. With some good luck the perps in jail will get a shiv by another con for killing a 76 year old woman.
