It's bastards like this guy that make it necessary for little old ladies to carry concealed weapons. Of course, he picked NYC to mug in, and we all know that the victim disarmament laws there make self-defense difficult, to say the least.
Had the 101-year-old woman been armed, he suddenly wouldn't have had the advantage of strength. Of course, pro-gunners have been saying this for a long time. It's too bad NYPD will be patting themselves on the back for catching him. They should be looking at how to lower victimization rates.
