    Payment for Act of Kindness: 2 Days in Car Trunk - at AGE 89!:

    from another article later, 5 teenagers were charged with this. I hope they throw the book at them. When I was a teenager, the big crime was hidden smoking in the bathroom. Lord, the youth today. What has happened to our country to produce these young sociopaths?

    Payment for Act of Kindness: 2 Days in Car Trunk at Age 89
    (a very well written and moving article)

    " LINCOLN, Del. A steel-haired woman, 89 years old and an inch short of five feet, sat on a pillow in the driver’s seat of her Buick LeSabre, just thinking. Parked outside a convenience store on one of the last days of winter, she was considering a pre-Easter treat for herself: an ice cream cone. Butter pecan.

    Two girls, 15 and 14, appeared at the window, calling her “Miss” and offering to pay for a ride to the other side of town. Her inclination was to say no, but her strong belief in offering kindness to strangers won out. She said yes, of course, and no need to pay her.

    Uncertainty soon joined the ride, as her passengers directed her to one house, then to another, and another. Then, according to the police, they snatched her keys, causing a tussle between two girls and a small woman three times their combined ages.

    Youth won out. They locked her in the trunk. .....

    (continued:
    https://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/06/u...pagewanted=all

    She sounds like a lovely person, no money but always trying to help people, a simple religious woman of real faith. I bet she really prays to her picture of Jesus and reads that duct-taped old family Bible. Moreover she seems a fighting survivor, not giving up even with the cruelty of others hurting her and imprisoning her. I bet a less fighting aged person would not have survived.

    Makes me furious at the kids though. How dare they do that to an 89 year old women!

    Water Board the 'young ladies' first, just to make them aware.

    Then pull out the soft but firm nipple off of them with rusty pliers (this is meant as SARCASIM to point out how the Leftist Progressives would say it). Just sayin.....

    We all are held to much higher standards (as those big bad firearms owners = ohh, the big bad redneck buggie man!)

    We all know these crimes are mostly (and Gov't approved) stastically Leftist Idiotiots......... not us people minding our own business and letting water just run under the bridge....

    Why treat these two 'Twits' any less hostile as the Progressive Left would treat you. Eye for an Eye!

    Yes, I hope they get the toughest of Judges for their sentencing who doesn't have to follow some slap-on-the-hand regulation. That'll never wake these kids up. They need to find there's real consequences for putting the frail and weak in jeopardy of death or anybody. I'd say Attempted Murder - go all the way with 'em.

    But I found the story both a horror to read of these cruel teenage scum, but also uplifting, a real example of the human spirit not accepting giving up, the applause of her church congregation letting her know her people admire and love her and treat her with great respect. Must to be a real community she's in - like the old days.

    She is an example to all of us of faith, fortitude and generosity. That's why I posted it. God bless her.

    This is the same crap, a different day.

    20 years ago, when I was living in my 2 acre desert hut CONUS SoCal Desert (well secured) two meth heads took a similar elder on a ride in her trunk to WA state. That wonderful older lady lived right behind my 'compound' = I wish I would have had her move in with me........................... So be life................................ They............ well, you figure it out..............

    Look, you cannot cure these sick people..............

    However, I can cure them for the moment they find god (a very short moment).................................. So be life............................

    Sounds like a horrible event and one that obviously really affected you. These thing are very, very hard to take. Some stories I start and can't read all the way. I get too upset. And some things that have happened to my friends! Well.......I won't start. I'll be up all night raging.

    Best to you.

    From op:

    Please understand: I posted this not to make people sick at the cruelty alone - there's no point to just that; we all know the reality of the cruel people - but because I really admire people like the old woman, carrying on, not giving up. And I love the image of simple but true faith, in her home with her picture of Jesus, thumbing through her old bible like her ancestors did. I also admire her community, like at her church rising to applaud and show her the respect she more than deserves.

    I use these people - common saints I like to think of them - as role-models when times are tough - as they are for me know - and you feel like giving up. She'll be another of a few I was fortunate to meet I'll bring to mind - one I met once a wonderful person visiting Auschwitz on a tour I was on who had lost 8 family members there but a real saint of a person with tremendous faith and generosity and acceptance.

    So the old woman was also my focus in this story and the main reason I posted this. I apologize if many don't feel that and just see the cruelty. It is horrible but it was not my intent to just share that.

    Best
