Matthew 5:38-42 :
38*“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’[a] 39*But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40*And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41*If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42*Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

Was she right for the job? It isn't my place to judge. Did she endure torment by these despicable little monsters when she easily could have done ANYTHING else? Yes. I offer kudos. These pathetic children would and will not change simply because an old woman tells them off. A good whoopin' by their parents might do the trick. I can't speak to their parenting, and I thank God my parents taught me to be compassionate.

/sigh

Besides the taxes for which she will likely lose at least half, I'm wondering what this will do to her pension?

I was watching this on the news this morning. They showed a father of one the kids coming to apologizefor his childs behavior. Really???

If that was my child, I would of drug him over to her house by his hair after he got a sore bum and he would apologize. He should know better than to disrespect an elder. And I would be taking another look at my parenting skills.

Of course this comes from a gal who doesn't have children...tee he.

As he should!
But his parents shouldn't be apologizing for him, he should be held accountable and apologize for his actions...which as of this morning on the news, none of kids have done.

A couple of the kids HAVE apologized. One, supposedly has sent a letter.....boo on that. Kid needs to apologize in person, IMO. One watched the video and said he was disgusted by his own behavior and he would be very upset if someone talked to his own grandma like that. There may be a glimmer of hope for that one. THat leaves one (there were, reportedly 4 involved) who has said nothing, at least that the media has reported.

Oh ok, I agree, a letter is completely half assed. I hope they all apologize in person sincerely.
