A 60-Year-Old Dallas Woman Fends Off Would-Be Burglar With a Solid Kick to the Groin

Jan Daniels was at home at 9:40 this morning, but she wasn't opening the door. She lives in a quiet and generally crime-free neighborhood of winding streets off Preston and Keller Springs in Far North Dallas, but she didn't recognize the three men at her door. So, the 60-year-old stood at the upstairs window and watched.

The men milled about in the circle drive for 10 minutes, ringing the doorbell again and again and again, until they had satisfied themselves that no one was home. Then, she later told police, they split up and moved to the side of the house.

There, two of the men found the laundry room door, which they kicked until it gave way. Daniels had suspected the men were up to no good as soon as they parked their Buick, but now she was sure. She marched to the laundry room and confronted the two men.

"Shame on you," she scolded, according to a police report. "The police are here."

Both of the men were carrying guns, which Daniels described as "black" and "shiny," but she didn't seem to be intimidated. She grabbed one of the men by the wrist of his gun-toting arm, braced herself, and connected on a solid kick to the groin.

The would-be burglar, reeling from both the pain of being kicked in the nads and the embarassment of being shamed by a 60-year-old woman, fell backwards into his accomplice, who joined him in running out the door. Daniels, meanwhile, didn't have a scratch.

If she had a gun she wouldn't have had to not use a gun...

As a long time critic of re-enactments, I would like to give these two model/actors ...two balls up.

 The Actress has her leg perfectly positioned and the male re-enacting recipient is perfectly bent expressing just enough pain...but not too much.

Once again, The Dallas Voice Re-EnACTOR's prove once again our talent pool is bottomless.

Today's Unfair Park was brought to you by the word "groin."

The Grandma in the pic looks like she's been going to the 'gun range'. She could probably beat Popeye in an arm wrestling contest.

If she wanted a pistol to handle the next problem like this, I'm sure we could put together a collection.

The more old women (especially old black women) there are armed, the better off we all are.

It's a good thing there was a photographer nearby to get a picture of the action!

The male actor above looks like a ginger Mormon. Do the Mormons admit gingers nowadays?

Eric, they may have mulled things over while they milled about, but those are two separate actions.

Picture clearly not indicative of actual reality.

@goonerbuff   If she had a gun, there's a good chance she'd have been shot.  Normal people don't own guns.

@ChrisYu Nooooooooo!

a re-enactment to prove a point never made IS NOT in any way associated with the photo.  

only to make us read the scree.

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz Proof that all burglars are not psychopathic granny killers.  What she did in no way preserved her life.  It was incredibly stupid, actually.  She had no way of knowing they were such "nice guys".

Knees don't kill people, but they do hurt your balls.

@wcvemail Just a bit O/T...but Mormon's make the best bottoms in the world.  Unlike Baptist, they are less bossy and whiney.  While they are annoying, closeted, and boring...they do make for one fine piece of ass.

Just a bit a Mormon trivia for your evening dinner conversation.

@wcvemail  A Mormon who likes older women to ... um ... rub him ... with their feet.

No, not just close. She got him right in the nads!

@John1073 If your knees hurt your balls, then you should try wearing more supportive underwear, like jockeys or an athletic supporter.

In any event, people who try to rob old ladies while armed with pistols deserve to die.
