    The world needs more people like her. I only hope that one day her sons understand why she did it and it was the right thing to do.

    Good. If I ever have children and they do something terrible like this, I'll be on the phone with police in a second. Just because we are flesh and blood doesn't mean you can get away with a crime.

    Her sons look like the kind of people who would get off by hurting others. About time they got taught a lesson.

    She is what's right with the world today. If there were more people like her, things would only get better. Hopefully, if I was in the same situation, I'd do the same thing. I'm definitely going to remember her and this story.

    This shouldn't be news, in my opinion. The fact that it is, makes my heart sink.

    OF COURSE if you do something violent like this, I am going to call the police and report you.

    Doesn't matter if it's a stranger, friend, brother, father, son, or wife.

    Sad indeed

    When I was growing up, a 14 year old boy in our community killed three small girls with a knife. The boy's mother found the bloody clothes in his room a couple of days later and called the police. The boy later committed suicide before coming to trial. The entire incident rocked our sleepy little town to its very core.

    I can't imagine how painful as a parent it would be to be in her position. I hope I never find myself there.

    well, of course I agree this was the right thing to do. And the fact that her son would threaten her life just goes to show the kind of person he is.

    But on a side note - 2 years? 2 freakin' years? What the hell? How about 15-life for attempted murder? Good lord.

    I thought the same thing as well. Only 2 years? Why not 10 years? How much do you need to hurt someone to get a big sentence? If this guy had died, which was a possibility, these guys would have gotten 10+ years. Whether the guy was killed, or was "almost" killed seems rather irrelevant as the act was the same. The man just got lucky, or was stronger and more resilient than he would have been if he was 50 years old, or sick.

    But those brothers look like they're going to turn violent and kill you, while Putin looks like he'd just tell someone to whack you.

    Yeah, I can join in the chorus of those who applaud this woman for her common sense. Her puns, however, leave much to be desired:
