Grandfather Beats Home Intruder With A Hammer To Protect Family
A brave Detroit grandfather proved that age truly is nothing but a number when it comes to protecting your family after he beat a home intruder over the head with a hammer following a break in
An 82-year-old Detroit man fought off a home invader, bashing the would-be thief in the head with a hammer.
"I asked him to leave," George Bradford told WJBK. But when the man didn't leave, "that's when I let him have it."
The intruder didn't fall, but he wobbled. "He asked me not to kill him," Bradford says.
Bradford says he wasn't just protecting his home, which he's owned since 1968. He was protecting his elderly mother, daughter and granddaughter, all of whom share the home with him.
"I was just glad that he did it because me and everyone else in the house was safe," 12-year-old granddaughter Shelby Bradford told WXYZ in Detroit.
Bradford says other would-be intruders better not get any ideas, because the hammer isn't the only weapon he has in the house.
"I don't want to kill anybody. But... if I have to, that's what I'll do," he told WJBK.
Kudos to him for doing whatever it took to protect his family. Clap for em.
Who wants an autograph from a guy "known" for hunting down and killing somebody????
Acquitted child murderer George Zimmerman is doing all that's possible to remain the aint-isht person he is in 2014.
The shameless bottom feeder was all smiles as he signed autographs at a Florida gun show over the weekend. We can't even begin to count the number of things completely wrong and disgusting with that sentence.
George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin, was the featured guest at a central Florida gun show this weekend, where he autographed photographs for customers. Organizers of the New Orlando Gun Show almost canceled the event because of backlash, but instead agreed to relocate Zimmerman's signing to a smaller venue.
In Miami last week for a deposition in connection to a battery lawsuit filed in June by photographer Jeffrey Binion, an annoyed Bieber commits to record his feelings about film (he prefers traditional formats), Katie Couric (thumbs down), Usher (huh?), and ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez (shut the fuck up).
In the video obtained by TMZ, Binion's lawyer, identified as Mark DiCowden, asks Bieber many questions. Bieber answers them as well as anyone with Bieber's haircut could.
And he looks into the camera and adjusts his collar. Like the World's Funniest, Smuggest Asshole:
But the best part of the video is when he's asked about Usher's "instrumental" role in launching his career. Bieber, confused by anything with four syllables, looks right at the camera and replies, "I was found on YouTube ... I think I was detrimental to my own career."
Lupita Nyong'o was a superhero sweeping through the awards season, now there are petitions being circulated on change.org urging the producers of the film, to consider replacing actress Halle Berry with 12 Years A Slave's Nyong'o in future X-Men installments.
Photoshopped images of Oscar winner Nyong'o are popping up on social media sites depicting her with comic book icon Storm's signature electric silver hair, while on the red carpet at the Oscars.
Although Berry will be hitting screens this summer in the latest X-Men film Days of Future Past, supporters of Nyong'o and X-Men fans alike say Nyong'o is the perfect fit for the role.

NAIROBI - Kenya's public wage bill has come under the microscope.
Members of the country's parliament are among the highest paid in the world and salaries of government employees leave little to spend in key sectors.
The salary and remuneration commission has been reviewing pay structures in the public sector.
They have now organised a debate among various public sectors bodies about the findings which show that average government salaries are eleven times higher than the per capita income.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding day is drawing closer and according to reports, the couple is still trying to get their wedding party in order. A few months back, rumors began circulating that Beyoncé declined Kim's offer to be a bridesmaid—a rumor which Kim's camp vehemently denied. But now, there are additional rumors floating around about the Carters and Kimye's wedding party.
Sources tell the Daily Star that Kanye asked Jay to be his best man in the upcoming ceremony. Initially, insiders say Jay proudly accepted the best man title, but only under the condition that he would not appear on camera for "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."
"Jay is Kanye's closest friend so he wants him to be best man. Jay agreed initially but had one condition – under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife, Beyoncé, or daughter, Blue Ivy, during the ceremony."
"The thought of popping up in KUWTK mortifies Beyoncé," the source continued. "She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn't prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion."
The source goes on to imply that the ceremony will be filmed for KUWTK, as E! executives are doing everything they can to seal the deal.
