    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 through.

    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 going to go out and get those bastards myself 'cause I figured the Law 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.

    I have an uncle who lives in Melbourne... next time I talk to him I'll see what the natives say regarding the lady (knowing those folks, they prob. think the guys deserved it, and the grandma will get probation, but I'll see what he says if I remember to talk to him about it)...

    Not an aussie... born and raised in Columbus...

    My Uncle moved there 15 years ago due to a job offer he couldn't refuse (he is a professor, and was at CaseWestern, until the University of Melbourne recruited him away from Case... Case is a good school, however the University of Melbourne is their top University in Aussie land), he does speaking engagements on the international circut, as well as run their MBA program, teaches a class or two, and does alot of research... he is published about a half dozen times each year... for over twenty years now (that's alot of work that as been published over the years)...

    At any rate, he does get back to the states 5-6 times a year, and my dad and he stay in contact...

    I have never been to Aussie, however the rest of my family has... It sounds like a great place... I'll get down their at some point...

    I hear the ladies down there are fit, and well endowed... (comming from my cousins... don't know how true the statement is :wink2: )...
