    Elderly man kidnapped and nearly beaten to death | KATV

    White County, Ark. (KATV) — A 91-year-old man is in critical condition after he was kidnapped from his home in Judsonia and nearly beaten to death on Monday.

    According to police, the elderly man was most likely trying to sell either his car or his pet bird to two suspects when he was forcefully taken from his home to an unknown location.

    The White County Sheriff’s Department says the victim was then severely beaten before being taken back to his home where the suspects let him go.
    So what are the elderly supposed to do against thugs like this? Just die quietly and happily because at least they were not shot?

    He was supposed to have a gun, learn how to use it in a safe place, like a firing range, and then shoot the intruders before they could beat him up.

    Buying a gun and firing off a few rounds while drunk (the OP story) would not have helped much.

    The focus should be on swift and severe punishment for the person or persons acting like this. Verses punishing those that act responsible and uphold the law.

    Yes, and yes. My point is that guns have a use, in that they can even things when a person is older or smaller than another... they don't have to be defenseless.

    Hopefully now the parents will have to get rid of the crib so "baby" gets a bed before he graduates from High School.

    Correct.
    And, like any tool, they can be misused.
