Grannies Gone Bad

An alarming new trend: Rebellious grannies.

First, there is news of this naughty old Japanese lady:

An 89-year-old Japanese woman is headed to prison for swindling acquaintances out of some 39 million yen ($368,000).

Repeat offender Matsue Nakamura was jailed for three years and four months by a court in northern Japan, the daily Asahi Shimbun said. Judge Keisuke Masuda acknowledged Nakamura’s advanced age but said she was a professional swindler and her four past convictions for similar scams forced him to jail her, it said.

He told her: “I hope that after serving your prison term you will lead an honest life and never repeat this sort of crime.”

Heck, you would hope that she would be able to lead any kind of life after getting out of prison at the age of 92.

Next is a story of a little old lady in the US who may just be conspiring to pervert the course of justice.

The tumultuous Tyco embezzlement trial went from shaky to flaky yesterday, when a gray-haired granny on the jury – believed to be the lone pro-acquittal holdout – threw the proceedings into an uproar by bizarrely flashing a conspiratorial smile and an “OK” hand signal to the defendants at the start of the day.

The sign of solidarity from Juror No. 4, Ruth Jordan – a gesture made with her right hand, shielded from the judge’s view but seen by many others – may have heartened the defense on day seven of deliberations, but it incensed prosecutors.

They sent word to the judge about it, prompting him to give all the jurors a stern warning against “communication of any kind” with the parties of the trial.

I think it is only a matter of time before the PLO Arabs start using grannies as suicide bombers.
