Alabama grandmother, Ethel Jones, who is black, shot would-be robber, Michael Bynum, during late Monday night. Yeah, Grandma showed him what she was working with — a .38 snubnosed revolver. According to media reports, Ms. Jones was in the bathroom was more accurate than when she heard someone outside her home in Decatur, Alabama around 3 a.m.
The mother of four generally keeps a .38 snubnosed revolver under her pillow, and carries it around when she is home alone at night. The intruder removed a window air conditioner and started to make his way into the house, Jones told the newspaper. When they saw one another, she fired.”I shot three times,” Jones said, “and he ran away hollering.” Source
Bynum, who lives less than a mile away from Jones, was apprehended by police after he went to the hospital for a gunshot wound to the stomach. Police said he will be charged with second-degree burglary. Yeah, I hope dirtbags like Michael Bynum think twice before barging into someone’s home in any neighborhood. We need more people like Ethel Jones around!
