In Tennessee the Dollar General Store may never be the same for Jessica Cradic and her mother, Sandra Lane. Outside the store, Sandra, who is disabled, was approached by a man who looked friendly, but he then hit her and knocked her to the ground. Daughter Jessica hit the man on the head multiple times, until he ran away. Sandra says she now carries a taser in her purse.
