A man mugged a 101 year old woman in the Bronx, New York in the lobby of her apartment building, fractured her cheek and took her purse. All that pain and trauma for $33.00!! What kind of person harms a 101 year old woman?! I can't believe it!

Well if you want to steal from someone then why not steal from someone that can't run after you? Makes pretty good sense to me. Not that I can understand why someone would steal in the first place.

It's crazy the amount of crimes these days. The elderly and children become easy targets. They can't defend themselves with strength. They aren't likely to be carrying any type of weapon. I'm glad it was all on tape. The guy also mugged an 85 year old woman down the road. Here is a couple of links to the story. http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/03/10/elderly.robbed.ap/index.html?eref=rss_topstories http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/03/10/national/main2555982.shtml
