If that is a baseball bat, make the most of it. I usually write about armed self-defense, but this story demonstrates that attitude is important. It is critically important, and can overwhelm seemingly insurmountable disadvantages. ‘Momma bear kicked in on me’ says Kingsport homeowner who fights off would-be robber with baseball bat | WJHL
While the headline is interesting, this is the money quote:
Police said that man tried to rob her, but didn’t know what he had coming.
He got her to open the door, and pushed his way in. He was nearly a foot taller and 100 pounds heavier, but she said “not today.”
Standing at just 4 feet 11 inches tall Morelock was staring at someone almost one foot taller, and 100 lbs heavier.
Morelock said that wasn’t going to stop her from fighting back.
“I reached over, and grabbed a bat, and its an aluminum bat,” Morelock said.
Two teenage women also joined the fight, and they pushed this guy back. And beat him black and blue in the process. (click through to see his mug shot.)
Self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
