yeah i`m sure the giant metal doors didn`t do anything to make the guys run off... it was the little lady whacking them that made them run... Kudos to her though for her bravery.

haha @Helgarin.

That old lady has balls, they could`ve easily turned the sledgehammer at her, but then they`d be charged with homicide so... I guess they weren`t as dumb

"Just for any one who isnt from the UK`s information... That guy you see that looks like a "Cop" is infact a parking ticket guy. They are fat and eat pies all day and are general arseholes..."

So what exactly is the difference from normal cops?

@kralmir, you`re saying that because you aren`t a man in desperation to live or for money...idk, in good conscience I would never hit an old person...but when in that state of mind that no normal human can comprehend...Idk.

i gotta agree, her age was a benefit for her. i can see myself robbing the place(if things get seriously bad, unlikely, but possible) but NEVER EVER would i hit a old woman with a sledgehammer, i`d sooner ram it against my own skull.

Renaud- actually, I disagree with you. Knocking off a jewelry store I might be able to do, hit an old lady with a sledge hammer? No way in hell.

I think it`s mostly due to the safety doors beginning to close that they fled not because of some crazy old lady

I love it when people fight back against criminals. I love it even more when they don`t get shot trying to foil the robbery.

It`s like watching PeeWee Herman try to rob a store. His getaway vehicle is a scooter, he can`t break the glass, then an old lady with a handbag beats him up.

"Police are normally there in about enough time to write a report."

Maybe where you are, in "Midwest, US", but this was in the UK, and in an urban location, during the day (when manpower isn`t sucked up by the "nighttime economy"). Your opinion on response times is hardly likely to be accurate.

Police are normally there in about enough time to write a report. They catch them in the act about 1% of the time. (I made the percentage up by the way.)

I have always thought the world would be a better place if all cops had to have raised kids and be at least 50. They can still handle the job at 75 better than any cop. And look no bullets were flying.

Why would they try that in the middle of the day? You would think that the police would be able to respond quickly.

Good for her! If more people would pile in and everybody could count on being backed up by other citizens we would all be better off. she might have got a wallop- but had there been more people they would all have been quite safe.

HAHAHAHAHAHA everything about this is hilarious, from the old lady kicking their asses, to them falling off their bike, to the fact that they`re stupid enough to do it in broad daylight and think that a moped is a good getaway vehicle.
