This is a picture of 88-yo May Boyce who was arrested for aggravated assault after shooting a man who tried to rob her liquor store. Her gun was confiscated by police.
Boyce has owned Murfreesboro Road Liquor and Wines in Nashville, Tennessee, since 1994. She opens and closes the store six days a week by herself.
Boyce claimed the victim, identified as Ramon Fisher, “lunged” at her after picking up a bottle and started to head for the exit.
Fisher originally confessed to police that he and his friend had intended to steal from the store, but later amended the story and said they intended to pay for it. Presumably they intended to pay for it after Fisher was shot.
Interesting how the police call Fisher the “victim.” Imagine if he just paid for it like a normal customer then he wouldn’t be nursing a bullet hole. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
Oh, and you’ll never guess what party the mayor of Nashville, who runs the police, is from. Democrat.
Should the 88-yo be given a life sentence or a medal for defending her business because two thugs thought she would be too frail to possess a Smith & Wesson snub nose .38 let alone fire it?
