    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.)

    "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.

    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.

    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 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.

    @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.

    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
