Hey, I see yall beating up on Nana, but yall know a lot of these kids make bad blood with their elders all the time. Mad reckless and unruly, no respect and dont care one bit wilding out everyday, WHILE, they live in their house, eating their food, using their hot water electricity, cable TV and so on (theyre taking care of them). Im willing to bet that kid may have also been bulling her or just has been taking from her everyday, and she warned him several times. People gonna stop sleeping on these older folks, disrespect them, run them over, talk any ol kind of way to them, all of them older ones aren't crazy, delusional, senile or suffering with dementia. Most let things slide because of circumstances (law, dependent, health reasons, etc), back in the day the elders would get you good if you violated them the wrong way or too many times, family or not. Its the new laws that has made it less frequent. They just cant afford the trouble with the law at theyre ages (no one wants to face any jail over the age of 30 let alone 60-70-80 or 90). The kids today think older folks are scared or soft, (just like how they see most people older then them), until you put them on their back. Grandma didnt wanna shoot her nephew, but shes sick of the crap. She cant hurt him without getting hurt and her sister or brother isnt handling him correctly or not around so hes outta control. She might not be able to hit him, but he knows now that her finger works very well, and she also can see, cause if she didnt he would be dead. That was a message and a lesson shot. She must have been tired of being sick and tired to do it...  (I bet he wont touch nothing else she got in that house with out asking from now on. lol)

People just doing whatever the hell they want, that is why this world has no peace. it's all about hurting someone or something. Its wrong what she did period, then what kills me is that people are really losing their minds over money, one steals one kills wtf where is the order from the elderly.

lmao at Vaughn "old bat" I feel you Roots, but for $20, it's not worth it. Best bet was to cut his ass off for good and shut the front door and the back too lol and file a police report and take out an order of protection and alert others about him in case he tries anything else after all that.

I'm with grandma these kids have no respect. The elders can't survive off of social security alone. Shame on him. He could of gotten it from someone else.

damn so sad. He's lucky in the middle east they chop off your hand for that. She should not be  handling guns, old bat, I wonder how she would have felt if she killed him over $20.
