    Purse Snatching: Case Study in Victim Selection

    This recently appeared on the OFCC forum.

    After watching numerous videos that typically appear on the 11:00 News, I was struck by the video's clarity.


    I borrowed this from texaschlforum:
    An alert (or bored!) security guard monitoring security cameras at a museum noticed a pickup park in front of the museum and it piqued his interest. Happily he was able to pan and zoom the camera, so he followed the guy who got out of the truck, and stuck with him as he did more interesting things. Eventually the guy spots a couple older ladies getting out of a car, turns around and follows them, then grabs one of their purses, knocking down both ladies in the process (the younger one -- 67 -- got a broken arm). He then runs away. However, police caught him later in the day when he came back to retrieve his truck -- thanks to the security guard and his camera.

    The mugger was recently sentenced to 6-15 years.

    I think a more appropriate sentence would be to line up 100 little old ladys with purses,50 on each side,then put a brick in each purse and tell them when he runs thru the line whack him with your purse,if you wanta trip him,go ahead you might be able to get a couple more whacks in

    And then the last little old lady pulls a .357 and finishes his career.
