I don't know about you, but I love a good underdog story. And the woman who stopped a jewelry store robbery in LA was your classic underdog. The 65-year-old store owner was up against five men, and she managed to scare them all so badly they ended up running straight out of the store!
All it took? Two warning shots fired from granny's gun. And as the hilarious surveillance video shows, these bunch of hooligans were practically falling all over themselves to get the heck out of there. Check it out:
Go granny, go granny, go! Apparently these guys were so freaked out that the getaway driver accidentally left some of his boys behind when he drove off. And you can see by the way she ran after them that this woman is not afraid of anything. She's mad, and she's not going to take it ... and she shouldn't have to.
I think I love how this went down most of all because these jerks walked in there thinking they were all that, and they got one heckuva lesson in humility. It takes a load of self-absorption to become a criminal and think it's OK to steal what other people have worked hard to earn. Fighting crime means taking these egomaniacs down a peg or two and making them realize they aren't special; they should have to work for a living just like the rest of us.
Would you call this woman a hero?
