Police: Grandmother Walks In On Lesbian Tryst, Attacks Teen
NBC 10 Philadelphia ^ | June 16, 2008 | NBC 10 Story Monkey

Posted on 06/16/2008 1:18:28 PM PDT by South Hawthorne

READING, Pa. -- Police said a 61-year-old Reading woman beat her 16-year-old granddaughter severely after finding her in bed with another girl.

Joyce Beddell is charged with aggravated and simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police said Beddell's granddaughter suffered serious bruises to her legs and buttocks during Thursday's assault with a cane and a belt. The other girl fled from the house before the beating began.

Beddell told police she had done nothing wrong. She told police she should be allowed to discipline her granddaughter as she wishes.

Beddell was jailed in lieu of $10,000 bail. It was unclear if she had a lawyer.

Of the beating? If the internet has taught me anything, it's that this happens all the time and the role of the grandmother is played by a 20 something.

Society has certainly gone soft. Bruises on thigh and buttocks don’t constitute “severe beating.”

A severe beating is a face swollen to 3 times normal size, etc.

Looks to me like this is being presented as a case of “homophobia” when the reality is that grandma would probably have done the same had it been a boy in bed with her grandaughter.

So, she walked in on an underage child (that it sounds like she may have custody of) involved in a perverted lesbian trist, and she beat her backside with a cane...porbably hitting the legs a few times as the girl tried to avoid the blows.

I got as bad from my own parents when I did wrong, and from my High School coach when I acte dup in 10th grade once. Gee, somehow I survived and am willing to say that I am better off for it.

The other girl apparently knew better than stick around and try and face Grandma.

I will tell you, I have a tough time faulting grandma if all she gave were bruises. If left well enough alone, I bet the teenager will think twice before ever trying that again in Grandma's house.

Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard Lyrics

Artist: Paul Simon

The mama pajama rolled out a bed
And she ran to the police station
When the papa found out he began to shout

And he started the investigation
It’s against the law
It was against the law
What the mama saw
It was against the law.

The mama look down and spit on the ground
Every time my name gets mentioned
The papa said, “Oy, if I get that boy,
I’m gonna stick him the house of detention.”
Well I’m on my way.
I don’t know where I’m going
I’m on my way I’m taking my time
But I don’t know where
Goodbye to Rosie the queen of Corona
See you, me and Julio
Down by the school yard
See you, me and Julio down by the school yard

In a couple of days they come and
Take me away
But the press let the story leak
And when the radical priest
Come to get me released
We was all on the cover of Newsweek

And I’m on my way
I don’t know where I’m going
I’m on my way, I’m taking my time
But I don’t know where
Goodbye to Rosie the queen of Corona
See you, me and Julio
Down by the school yard
See you me and Julio
Down by the school yard
See you me and Julio
Down by the school yard

Society has certainly gone soft. Bruises on thigh and buttocks don’t constitute “severe beating.” - recently as a jurist on a trial the DA said in opening statements the lady had severly beaten her boss; during the trial they showed a cut on his finger that may have been 1/4" long, much less than my daughter gets playing with our cat.

My third grade teacher beat my butt with alarming regularity.

My little home town celebrated her 100th b/day back in 2000, I thought about going to it, I figured I could beat the old hag by then.

Pay back!

Those coaches for small town High School football in Texas in the late 60s and 70s had made a fine art of notching, drilling holes in, and working a wooden paddle to inflict pain without doing real damage.

Back then, when old Dub Johnson wielded one, you did not want to come back for more...or at least you made as darn sure as you could that you did not get caught. LOL!

I remember when the hall pass to the bathroom was also the padal you would get whacked with. I also remember that you didn’t want to do something that would warrent the whacking.

Good for Grandma. You will note the article doesn’t mention the age of the young girl’s partner. Guess we can assume the other one was probably not a minor.

Honor killing - American style. Exact same base motivation: “My child is my property, to dispose of as I please.”

Beddell was jailed in lieu of $10,000 bail. It was unclear if she had a lawyer.

There ought to be a Community Supper to gather her bail/lawyer $

Yep, my immediate thoughts were good luck to the DA prosecuting such a case. What are the chances of finding 12 people who each will vote to convict.

Hey,
I remember as a first grader when the older students had all of us believing that a teacher had an electric paddle! It kept us straight all year until we wised up. I loved school so never got into any trouble. The way I looked at it was that my dad knew all of the teachers and their families so I knew I would be in trouble big time if I acted up. I did go 11 years without missing a day of school. I had a cousin who went all 12 years without missing a day. We all were a healthy bunch from eating good fresh southern food. No junk added to any of it.

She did the correct thing. Underage teens have NO right to have sex in their guardians home.

Kudos to Big Bad Granny....maybe a bashing can turn around
a child from turning to sexual perversion. But in today’s Liberal ‘Brave New World’ it’s Granny who needs the Time Out, ay?

Your attempt at moral equivalence with the barbarity of the Islamic faith shows a lack of understanding of the role of parents under the Judeo-Christian worldview.

Parents aren’t allowed to kill their children for any reason, but they are given the authority and the requirement to train and discipline the child.

16-year-old granddaughter severely after finding her in bed with another girl.

This is an outrage....the teens should have the rights to free expression away from parental repression. They should also be legally able to marry at 16 as well. Maybe the black robed wonders of the courts will sanction this as well./sc

Maybe I’m old fashioned, but I’d never want to admit that I was beaten by a woman. As for the cut, I would be embarrassed to even have it noticed, let alone entered as evidence in a trial.
