Ok this woman was charged, how about the children of the woman she assaulted? They did real damage to this woman with her own bat.

That's right! Justice was served --- by CHILDREN!!! If the Courts in Virginia would do their job maybe I wouldn't be so happy about this violent woman, who beat an unarmed person over WORDS, getting her ass whipped by kids. But, since I know that the original assailant will walk out of the Court with a slap on the wrist I am laughing my ass off knowing that she will always remember to keep her bat in the house and her mouth shut - thanks to the brave kids that defended their mother... (give those kids a cookie for me!!!!)
