Thugs who beat one-legged grandmother, 64, with baseball bat so badly they broke every bone in her face are jailed for total of 37

Lin k - Warning graphic images

Wow, what a bunch of tough guy's. All for a £100

At the time the attackers, both from Hyde, had been seeking her son Daniel, 30, who owed £100 for cannabis.

In the run up to the assault, he had received threatening text messages saying: 'Answer your phone, stop making it worse for yourself. You're going to get yourself hurt badly. You have crossed the wrong guy.' 

Other messages included: 'I will have the last laugh' with the last - four days before the assault - saying: 'My guys off to your mam's now'.

Poor lady, this could've easily been a senseless murder

Recalling her ordeal she added: 'I head this crash and then these voices saying 'it's police stay where you are' and I thought why are the police are breaking into the back of the house? 

'So I got up well struggled to get into my wheelchair because I don't wear my prosthetic at night, got into my wheelchair just come out of the bedroom door and that's when it all started.

'The smaller one was baseball batting me and the other one threatened to slash me if I didn't give him money because that's all they were asking for, money. 

'But him with the knife went into the bedroom and as far as I know he ransacked it. I got hit 8 or 9 times, even my face blood was just pouring everywhere and I just thought I'm going to die.

'I remember going in the ambulance, I don't remember anything after that till I woke up in intensive care two weeks after it happened. I ended up on life support and ended up having to have tracheotomy.

Too late idiot

In mitigation for Mortin defence counsel Miss Vanessa Thompson said: 'Remorse is at the forefront of his thoughts and that remorse is not directed at himself but towards Mrs Dransfield and he has regret for what he involved himself in that night and it was not his intention to go out and attack a vulnerable woman who couldn't defend herself.

In my heyday I knew some real tough guy's and children along with elders were always off limits. Well the good news is that's 2 less scumbags off the streets and they will surely get what they deserve in prison. One of them was even smiling in his mug shot, let's see how long he can keep that smile for.

These are the rare times I would have not too much problem with a death penalty, hope they go into general population in prison..I doubt they would be kindly looked upon.

wow 2nd post and you've somehow made this about Trump ? wth ???

What a disgusting attack, I get it, they're dealers if someone rips them off £100 they need to make an example so others know not to do it, but to attack an old lady who had nothing to do with it apart from being a relative ? What goes through peoples minds.

Our society is sick and it needs healing

Disgusting. Beating up an elderly, disabled woman with a baseball bat? Over her grandson's tiny debt? And texting the grandson that these clowns were on their way to assault his grandmother?

Good grief. These guys aren't hard. They're small-time morons who get off beating up people who can't fight back.

And the one smirking in the mugshot? I wonder if he'll still be smirking after he's spent years of his life in prison.

Yea let's see how hard they really are when their crime gets exposed to the general population and the real tough guy's want to say hello.

Keep smiling tough guy.

I have a honestly held belief that if people had the clear right to defend themselves then there would be far less crime, I have lost count the number of times I have seen a statement where someone just let a attack take place because they where scared of repercussions from the authorities, we have all heard of people being sent to prison for tackling a burglar..

These w@nk stains and the rest of their ilk know there is very little people can do to defend themselves and if they do they actually have the chance of compensation, the situation is absurd!!!!!...

Yes we have the "use of force" written into law but that is a total can of worms...

Oh I imagine if Granny wasn't so vexxed about the moral dilemma of defending herself, she could have easily taken on 2 young bulky thugs without issue.

For once, not a bad sentence in my opinion

Shame CPS couldn't prove intent to kill unless of course a plea deal was reached which it probably was. Those two little handsome chaps are going to have a damn nice time in prison when Mr Big and his girls get hold of them

Drug dealers aren't bad mkay. Yeah for sure. Why waste money on these two thugs in the first place? Killing them would be a huge favor to civil society. I doubt many people would want to become drug dealers if they always had to fear of getting killed by any person they met. It should be legal for civilians to punish them as they see fit if they witnessed a drug deal. Duterte is on the right track in handling them.

Drugs are only bad because the law says they're bad

Calling for the deaths of drug dealers is a bit extreme do you not think ?

How do you differentiate between a dealer who sells cannabis and one who sells heroine ? both are dealers, do they both deserve murder ?

What about pharmaceutical companies who are glorified legal drug dealers ? should all their staff be murdered too ?

What about alcohol companies and their staff ?

It's not as black & white as "he's a dealer, let's kill him"

Perhaps if we didn't drive drugs into the criminal black market then nefarious people with questionable morals would not be the ones selling them and therefore they wouldn't be associated with drug related crimes as drugs would not be illegal ?

First we should stop the glorification of drugs in the media. I don't give a f#ck about the life of any drug dealer. There is a huge difference if you deal in cannabis or heroin for example. Drug dealers are only there to feed the addictions and make money off of them. They are also responsible for every hard drug related death. Why should i care about drug dealers and their backstory? They are scum and nothing more. I'm tired of this pussyfooting around because people don't want to face reality. Nobody is forced to become a criminal. If some drug dealers have to die to make a neighbourhood safe for children again so be it. Why would you even defend scum like that? Heroin,meth,coc aine and the other hard drugs are illegal for a very good reason. They are highly addicitive and destroy your body and mind. Would you do hard drugs if they were legal? Btw i would force every drug addict into rehab too.

sounds like the UK needs a social program to give free cannabis the those that can't afford it, that would shut the drug trade down, saving one legged grandmas some beatings.

Durterte doesn't just kill drug dealers though, he also assassinates political rivals and journalists.

And with his moronic system, anyone can kill anyone else they don't like, plant drugs on them, and they get off scot free. It's sickening.

Terrible thing here...but then again? This is why one should not mess around with drugs, dealers, org's that make, distribute and addict society. This is just one of a thousand effects of being involved in it.

Here in the Metro area, mothers cry when their kids get shot in a house riddled by a drive-by shooting. Now, WHY did this house get shot up in the 1st place? Last incident had 9 people in that house....

Well c'mon...SOMEBODY was involved in and/or owed somebody for "some-thing", right?...The average neighborhood home does not get shot-up by "drive-bys"...or moms and grandmoms beat up...

Poor woman...

Absolutely disgusting. Hopefully these lads will experience some 'justice' in there years inside. Who attacks an old lady like that. Proper crime don't do that. It's the young one trying to make a name for emselves. I'd leave em to the family members to deal with.

Horrible non humans.
