AWAT: Four kids case woman then steal her purse
Four kids case woman then steal her purse.
Four juveniles case a woman at the petrol pumps in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.One of them steals the woman's purse.
This was a crime of opportunity.
They walked up, saw an opportunity, the mark was easy prey, and they on the spot developed a plan of action.
The woman/mark should have locked her doors to start or at the very least had the passenger door locked. There was zero reason to have it unlocked.
As well she took waaaayyyy too long fiddling around pumping her gas. Get in and get out.
As long as she took one could have filled the tank of a semi and she was only driving a Saturn. Ridiculous.

Agreed, doors should have been locked. Agreed, she took too long to take care of business.
She made it worse, too, by (apparently) going after them. Understandable impulse, certainly. But very risky.
Even so, the mantle of wrongful behavior here rests squarely on the shoulders of the scum that stole from her.
Nothing else I could say about them would be legally defensible, so I will keep those thoughts to myself.

Totally oblivious to potential threats. The gas pump is a prime location for this type of thing. Not at all unusual here. I've sent this link to a number of friends. Thanks, Janq.

I just finished driving across the country and I was even worried about people trying to siphon gas out of the tank I just pumped while I went to get the change. You'd better believe I locked the doors! These kids have it coming if they ever try this one someone other than a poor little old lady.
