Gun-toting granny Ava Estelle, 81, was so ticked-off when two thugs raped her 18-year-old granddaughter that she tracked the unsuspecting ex-cons down… And shot off their testicles.
“The old lady spent a week hunting those men down and, when she found them, she took revenge on them in her own special way,” said police investigator Evan Delp.
Then she took a taxi to the nearest police station, laid the gun on the sergeant’s desk and told him as calm as could be: “Those bastards will never rape anybody again, by God.”
Cops say convicted rapist and robber Davis Furth, 33, lost both his penis and his testicles when outraged Ava opened fire with a 9-mm pistol in the hotel room where he and former prison cell mate Stanley Thomas, 29, were holed up.
The wrinkled avenger also blew Thomas’ testicles to kingdom come, but doctors managed to save his mangled penis, police said. “The one guy, Thomas, didn’t lose his manhood, but the doctor I talked to said he won’t be using it the way he used to,” Detective Delp told reporters. “Both men are still in pretty bad shape, but I think they’re just happy to be alive after what they’ve been through.”
The Rambo Granny swung into action August 21 after her granddaughter Debbie was carjacked and raped in broad daylight by two knife-wielding creeps in a section of town bordering on skid row. “When I saw the look on my Debbie’s face that night in the hospital, I decided I was going to go out and get those bastards myself ‘cause I figured the Law would go easy on them,”’ recalled the retired library worker. ” And I wasn’t scared of them, either - because I’ve got me a gun and I’ve been shooting’ all my life. And I wasn’t dumb enough to turn it in when the law changed about owning one.”
So, using a police artist’s sketch of the suspects and Debbie’s description of the sickos, tough-as-nails Ava spent seven days prowling the wino-infested neighbourhood where the crime took place till she spotted the ill-fated rapists entering their flophouse hotel.
“I knew it was them the minute I saw ‘em, but I shot a picture of ‘em anyway and took it back to Debbie and she said sure as hell, it was them,” the oldster recalled…
“So I went back to that hotel and found their room and knocked on the door, and the minute the big one opened the door, I shot ‘em right square between the legs, right where it would really hurt ‘em most, you know. Then I went in and shot the other one as he backed up pleading to me to spare him. Then I went down to the police station and turned myself in.”
Now, baffled lawmen are trying to figure out exactly how to deal with the vigilante granny.. “What she did was wrong, and she broke the law, but it is difficult to throw an 81-year-old woman in prison,” Det. Delp said, “especially when 3 million people in the city want to nominate her for Mayor.”
No mercy for rapists.
I don’t know who you are but i will find you and i will shoot your testicles off.
Fuck yes, Granny. Rapists deserve nothing less than this.
We must shift from a politic of desirability and beauty to a politic of ugly and magnificence. That moves us closer to bodies and movements that disrupt, dismantle, disturb. Bodies and movements ready to throw down and create a different way for all of us, not just some of us.
The magnificence of a body that shakes, spills out, takes up space, needs help, moseys, slinks, limps, drools, rocks, curls over on itself. The magnificence of a body that doesn’t get to choose when to go to the bathroom, let alone which bathroom to use. A body that doesn’t get to choose what to wear in the morning, what hairstyle to sport, how they’re going to move or stand, or what time they’re going to bed. The magnificence of bodies that have been coded, not just undesirable and ugly, but un-human. The magnificence of bodies that are understanding gender in far more complex ways than I could explain in an hour. Moving beyond a politic of desirability to loving the ugly. Respecting Ugly for how it has shaped us and been exiled. Seeing its power and magic, seeing the reasons it has been feared. Seeing it for what it is: some of our greatest strength.
- Mia Mingus Femmes of Color Symposium: Keynote Speech
I’m not even halfway done with this and I already know this is one of those texts I’m going to go back to over and over and over. I’m particularly taken by the use of the word “magnificence” (explicitly instead of “beauty”) in this passage and it’s really hitting me in my heart. Avry (a-bayani’s) post has also got me in the gut in a seriously wonderful way and I really suggest reading that as well.
“the magnificence of a body that needs help”. I cannot get that out of my head.
FUCK. YES. THANK YOU. I NEEDED TO READ THIS SO MUCH RIGHT NOW.
Hearing Mia Mingus give this speech in person was one of those live changing moments. A room full of a bunch of different types of femmes of color listening to this speech. The energy in the room was amazing. I cried like 2 sentences in and didn’t stop. This speech was part of the reason I consciously started embracing my ugly over a year ago. I constantly go back to it and draw strength from it.
“bodies and movements that disrupt, dismantle, disturb”
Don’t make her beat the shit out of you with her shoe. For real.
Wattstax the concert was an incredible outpouring of music, soul, and the Black experience. Staged at the Los Angeles Coliseum in the summer of 1972, it brought together over 100,000 people in a spirit of joy, price, and celebration.
Virtually the entire Stax Records roster, including Isaac Hayes, Rufus Thomas, The Staple Singers and many more, put their heart into performances that matched the magic of the occasion and forged a connection with the crowd which is still remembered and revered.
Wattstax the movie is more than just incredible musical performances. Through topical street interviews on subjects ranging from music and love to politics and the 1965 Watts Revolt, the film provides unexpectedly potent insight into life in Watts.
A young, relatively unknown Richard Pryor peppers the film with biting wit in a series of standup routines, binding the interviews and musical performances together into a powerful statement on life in Black America.
“Caucasian Guilt” by Noh Mercy
Sam just picked this record up for me…half of me loves it cuz it’s just 2 girls doin screeching vocals & drums, and half of me wants to throw it against the wall when I hear this song in particular (“I never put no Jap in a camp!”) while Esmerelda just “couldn’t get enough of Japanese culture” and is now “striving to become Enlightened for the benefit of all living things” because “somebody has to do it.” …thanks
A thick forest of whirling limbs beating out rhythms for whispers and hollers to leap and dive through. Featuring members of Gang Wizard, Friends Forever and the infamous International Voice of Reason, Foot Village are pure hardcore spirit without the spark of electricity.
Experimental spaz drum ‘n’ voice noise rock from LA with dual male and female vocals. Chaotic and totally unhinged! They have quite a few releases including splits as you can see here.
Thanks a lot Anon! I think I’m in love with this band!
Bye Bye Sidney Hih.
Over the weekend I got to see the Sidney Hih building in downtown Milwaukee mid-demolition for one last time. I have to admit that I never thought much of the perennially run-down building sandwiched between a highway spur and the mostly vacant northern edge of downtown during my youth in Milwaukee.
Milwaukee is a city that has an incredibly rich urban history. While the Sidney Hih building may have been an eyesore to some, it’s demolition in the face of questionable urban planning and development continues to raise the question of what is important and what is worth saving, especially for a city with as rich a history as Milwaukee.
Im not much of a hater but I do not like this guy.
I don’t understand how he gets away with that shit. Drives around all slow with a megaphone downtown…I heard he’s officially a Wisconsin “landmark” or tourist attraction or some bulllll
The oppressed white male has it so hard, people want him to apologize for being a proud American. I’m not sure if any one has ever tried to make someone apologize for being a “proud American”, but according to the oppressed white males that I work with, it’s one of the bigger issues…
Asian Racial Identity in the Alt. Comix world
I am often told that my book Vacuum Horror is a shock-value horror Manga, when I do not believe my style to be entirely Japanese, I admit it was partially so, significantly. “Oh it’s more of that vulgar Japanese stuff,” I’ll hear. In 2009 I did a series of short stories and was told in an accusatory tone that my work was “White Washed.”
In essence, Adrian Tomine is working against Asian stereotypes but unintentionally reinforcing them by being a whiny nerd, a hyper-American “Leave It To Beaver” type… One would only have to look at the Korean Catholic community, pre-Gen X.
And I feel that Vacuum Horror reinforces the psycho Samurai stereotype by being very over-the-top, absurd, and guteral… perhaps trying too hard to be extreme, like the dancing 3-foot tall pompadour Rockabilly of Tokyo.
In any case, I feel we have both failed in our efforts, in an attempt to defeat the emasculated, wimpy, submissive role that the whites have created for us.
In my latter work I have attempted to explode these ideas and have met quite a bit of success.
Racial stereotyping is an American tradition… The reductive quality uses a lie as a vehicle that perpetuates America itself and grants its members their power to subjugate others. We spout racial slurs at the rest of the world to keep them mystified about us. The truth is there is no American identity anymore, and theWhite Upper class is just a bunch of formless blobs eating Doritos/Nutritional Yeast in front of LCD monitors, crying and masturbating.
Not having a book put out by Fantagraphics isn’t exactly like getting fire hosed or sitting at the back of the bus. I might have to at times cash in on some racial stereotypes in order to get some exposure… If people want a psycho Samurai, they can have him periodically…
Excuse me while I do some maintenance work on my drill penis.
The FBI are also looking for the man in the photo. Pass it around. The more eyes that see it, the more quickly he will be found. Reblog this post and encourage your friends and family to share it, too.
There has been a fund set up for the victims of the Oak Creek Temple Shooting.

Regardless of your faith, or lack of, being gunned down while praying is absolutely insane and an terrorist act.

There are children inside. A witness to the shooting [said] shooter was a white male with a heavy build, bald head and wearing a sleeveless T-shirt [with 2 handguns].

Black Spades Gestapo
THE BLACK SPADES WERE A NYC BLACK STREET GANG THAT STARTED AS THE SAVAGE SEVEN & THEN CHANGED THEIR NAME TO THE BLACK SPADES AS THEY GREW. AFRIKA “PLANET ROCK” BAMBAATAA WAS THEIR WARLORD UNTIL 1973 WHEN HE WENT ON TO FORM THE UNIVERSAL ZULU NATION. MY POINT IN ALL THIS, ASIDE FROM LOVING THIS ON ALL LEVELS, IS THAT THIS IS A BLACK NYC STREET GANG ROCKING SWASTIKAS & CALLING THEIR INTERNAL OUTFIT “GESTAPO”. GUESS WHAT, THE BLACK SPADES WERE NOT NAZIS. THIS IS ALL ABOUT A STYLE & A MENTALITY THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE WORLD OF SQUARE POLITICS.
totally a difference when the oppressed take the oppressors’ names/symbols and turn it back on them, than suburban douchebag white kids doin it to piss off their moms tho
O GOD O GOD O GOD why did i read more about Darius Simmons why did I read white people’s opinions on this and why did i go to the Milwaukee Occupy the Hood facebook and read all the comments on their page from racist fucks in my own city FUCKING FOR REAL PANIC I WANT TO KILL EVERYONE MY HEART IS EXPLODING
“i think its time to take the race card away from the blacks, im sure im not the only one who is sick of it”
“Occupy the hood? WTF?!!!Try occupying your brain!”
“yeah i got a kick out of this occupy the hood thing too, like really?”
“The hoods already occupied!”
“Yeah let them stay there too LOL”
