A bunch of robbers smash in the windows of a jewelry store with sledgehammers. They’re going for the classic snatch and grab and have scooters standing by for their getaway. Pretty basic stuff so far. But it all turns to hell for them when an old lady comes running up and starts bashing them with her purse. They are clearly unsure of what to do next: bash her in the head (and face higher charges if they’re caught), keep stealing (and keep having to deal with her) or run. They choose the latter…

Nothing but praise for the courage of this old lady. She saw something that was wrong and went to do something about it. Was it reckless and dangerous of her? Yup. One swing of a sledge hammer could have ended her life. But nobody else was stepping up so she decided to so just that. You can only admire her courage here and be glad she’s alright.
