Smart Girl 2 - Thugs 0

The AP reports - - -

Don't mess with the marching band. That's what California authorities are saying after a 17-year-old girl used her marching band baton to beat back two would-be muggers.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Michael Rust says the Quartz Hill girl was walking to school April 24 when two men approached her from behind, tried to grab her coat and demanded money.

Instead, one got a punch in the nose and the other a kick to the groin. Rust says the girl then beat both of them with her band baton before she ran away.

The men had not been caught. But Rust says there's a clear message to take from the encounter:

"The moral to this story is don't mess with the marching band girls, or you just might get what you deserve. Final score: marching band 2, thugs 0."

I taught my two daughters when they were pre-teens if ever they were set upon by muggers/rapists/other dirtbags, to go for 1) testicles, or 2) eyeballs.
I wouldn't want to be the guy who tries anything with Jennifer or Tanya.
Incidentally, Tanya just bought a 9mm Glock and is very proficient in its use. In the early eighties I took her to the range when she was a 14-year-old standing about 5ft 3in. She shot my M1911 .45 off-hand and kept every shot in the black at 25 meters. She's even better now. Any muggers care to try?
