The main problem is our legal

The main problem is our legal system. This person probably has a rap sheet as long as my arm and the legal system lets him out with a slap on the hand. If you do the crime, DO THE TIME!!!

At least there was no

At least there was no firearm. Its scary enough to be robbed, but when you get a gun put in your face it changes everything. Sounds like no premeditation, just a desperate situation probably drugs. And I'm sure you are right darkhorse purse snatching is just like this robbery. Just goes to show thugs win even without guns and death. Fortunately, one of his crackhead friends will probably turn him in hoping for a reward.
