From NBC-NYC: Thieves snatched a purse from an 84-year-old woman in the Bronx on Wednesday — the latest in what has been a series of unrelated attacks, some of them violent, on older and elderly people across the city.
The two hooded men grabbed the purse from the woman as she sat on a bench at a bus stop at 1635 East 174th Street in Bronx River just before 6 a.m.
Video released by police appears to show the suspects rummaging through the woman's purse in an elevator at 1630 East 174th Street.
That wasn't the only attack on an elderly person in the Bronx in recent days. A 71-year-old man was punched in the face and knocked to the ground last Friday in Allerton, according to police. The robber then took the man's wallet and ran away....
And a 93-year-old East Harlem woman in a wheelchair was robbed of her Social Security money last week. A 26-year-old man was arrested in that case.
Last month, surveillance video showed a man pushing a 74-year-old man down a staircase in a robbery in the Bronx. The suspect is still on the loose in that attack.
I don't care if the thugs are black, white, or brown, it doesn't matter, they are all thugs, but all the victims shown in the article are Black and it's very sad these folks are being targeted.
But New York City is run by liberals, especially the Mayor, who is extremely liberal, who hates cops and he always has.
He also had his top cops get rid of stop and frisk to get guns and criminals off the streets find criminals wanted on warrants and because of this, the thugs aren't afraid of cops and they do as they please.
There is nothing the NYPD can do except do find the criminals after they have committed the horrible crimes.
Just another example of liberals screwing up another major U.S. city and making it unsafe for vulnerable people live in.
