As expected. . .

. . .the three punkass dirtbags who broke into the home of a 73-year-old woman, kicked her in the face, and beat her until she suffered a shattered hip have been arrested. One of them was a minor (15), unfortunately, so his name hasn't been publicized. As for the other two, their names are Anthony Aaron Adkins (18), and Brent L. Coley (20).

McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden and his staff did their usual excellent job in picking these punks up as quickly as they did. Let's just hope the Commonwealth's Attorney has a sense of the outrage this crime generated in the community and prosecutes these thugs accordingly.

UPDATE: Some better coverage of this story can be found HERE. This coverage comes from the Paducah Sun, which has all its content walled off from anyone who doesn't subscribe to their dead-tree edition. I've always been somewhat mystified as to their rationale for doing so. I guess they figure their paper is so vastly superior to every major metropolitan daily in the nation that they can thumb their nose at us mouth-breathing yokels who like to keep up with local news but don't want to fork over the dough for their confiscatory subscription rates. Be that as it may, McClatchy-Tribune Information Services was kind enough to acquire permission distribute the story so that hayseeds like me can revel in the glory that is the Sun's top-notch fishwrap.
