A 77 Year Old Grandma Was Assaulted By Her Daughter And Granddaughter For Listening To Her Steelers Too Loudly
TheComeback- According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the woman in question was allegedly beaten over two days by her daughter and granddaughter because she was listening to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ preseason game too loudly on TV and the radio Sunday.
Delores M. Amorino, 40, Sarah M. Amorino, 17, have reportedly been charged with aggravated assault, criminal conspiracy, strangulation, terroristic threats, false imprisonment, simple assault, harassment and criminal mischief. They are being held on $200,000 bond. The grandmother’s injuries were not life-threatening.
The details of this story are pretty insane.
Per the Tribune-Review, the hearing-impaired older woman locked herself in her bedroom with a radio after her daughter and granddaughter turned down the volume of the TV. Delores and Sarah Amorino then allegedly broke the door to the older woman’s room, hit her in the face with a broom, twisted her arm, whacked her in the back of the head, stomped on her foot, shaved her head with scissors and a shaver, choked her with their hands, wrapped a scarf around their neck and refused to let her leave the house. The abuse lasted from Sunday through Monday, until she escaped Tuesday morning.
I'm of the belief that you can't truly call yourself a family unless you possess at least a little bit of disfunction, but breaking down Granny's door to give her unauthorized buzzcuts and put her in sleeper holds? My goodness. Even Jerry Springer would have a hard time pretending to help these lunatics resolve their differences while actually just turning them into shamelessly compelling television.
Look, if you want to be naive and think that the grandmother did nothing wrong then be my guest. As someone that has struggled through watching far too many out-of-town games in bars, I feel inclined to agree with anyone that does everything in their power to put some sound to the sights. I just also feel inclined to believe that a 77 year old woman that went and locked herself in her room away from her psychotic family wasn't just pushing buttons that said 'volume' when she turned up the decibels to a level which probably had the whole neighborhood thinking they were standing next to Mike Tomlin. The elderly are a very spiteful people (as anyone who has spent over 70 decades dealing with others should be), so there's no question this die-hard Steelers' fan tried to blow out some eardrums in retaliation.
That's not to say that I don't agree with her reasoning. That clearly hormonal 17 year old teen needed to be put in her place for thinking football is the same without commentary, even if that "place" was in an audiologist's office. That 40 year housewife needed to be reminded that Oprah's audience isn't the only thing that adds to a viewing experience, even if it made her ears ring louder than the 'Life Alert' her mother should have had around her neck before getting involved in a literal and figurative handicapped match. I totally agree with the point that Granny did too good of a job proving, but you have to know you've raised crazies that are capable of jumping the woman that ultimately brought them into this world before going out of your way to piss them off.
