> The Rambo Granny of Melbourne, Australia
> 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 Melbourne
> 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 cellmate 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
> 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

> 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 shootin' 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 neighborhood 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, Furth, 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 sainthood and a medal.
