Your Friday Afternoon Florida Report

A 65-year-old woman from Florida ended up taking on a 300-pound attacker who was half-naked after she caught him trying to break into her car.

Grandmother Clarese Gainey heard a noise outside her Gainesville apartment on Sunday morning and so grabbed her baseball bat as she went outside to investigate.

‘I grab my bat, I braced myself, and I eased the door open,’ Gainey, who is a former high school softball player, said as she recalled the encounter.

    I think that some Florida group should take up a collection and buy her one of the new M & P .380 EZ pistols. Plus training time. Next time, she might not be so lucky, and a gun is much better than a baseball bat. Maybe the police can use some of the money they steal, I mean, confiscate from uncharged non criminals, and set up a fund for just such an occasion.

    That looked like a hollow aluminum bat. If she drilled a small hole in the butt end of the handle and then poured about a cup and half of water in the hole and then covered the hole with some clear silicone putty…when she swung the bat next time, it would crush the thick skull of even the african animals like this one.

Play nice.
