NEWS: Girl beats off muggers with marching band baton

QUARTZ HILL, Calif. – Don't mess with the marching band. That's what California authorities are saying after a 17-year-old girl used her marching band baton to beat back two would-be muggers.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Michael Rust says the Quartz Hill girl was walking to school April 24 when two men approached her from behind, tried to grab her coat and demanded money.

Instead, one got a punch in the nose and the other a kick to the groin. Rust says the girl then beat both of them with her band baton before she ran away.

The men had not been caught. But Rust says there's a clear message to take from the encounter:

"The moral to this story is don't mess with the marching band girls, or you just might get what you deserve. Final score: marching band 2, thugs 0."

My wife once got chased, as a teenager, into some orange groves, by three men. She ran, until she remembered that she still had the aluminum tennis racket from her practice. That's when she stopped. The first guy got a strong backhand stroke to the groin (going up and under...), and promptly went fetal (oh darn). She literally wrapped the aluminum racket around the second one's head, and he went down unconscious. The third one took off running fast, which was good as my wife was about ready to chase him She's taken the fight to four other miscreants over the 24 or so years I've known her, and has a street record of 6-0-0, 2KO, 2TKO...LOL.
