Purse snatching at it’s worst.

You know, purse snatching is one thing, but fingers?!?:

Pinkins drove by a 55-year-old woman at about 2 p.m. on Wednesday, swiped her purse and stepped on the gas, Gwinnett Police Corporal Illana Spellman said.

“As the suspect drove away, one of the victim’s fingers was pulled off,” Spellman said. – [Yahoo/AP]

Now seriously, I can see why somone might decide to snatch some old ladies purse. Not that I agree with it, mind you, but I can understand a ne’er-do-wells motivation for doing so. But taking her finger? That’s just wrong. I’m not OK with that. It’s not like he could do anything with it. Seriously.

If an old/older lady gives you that much resistance when you try to grab that purse, please, people, in the name of all that is decent, just let it go. Osteoporosis is a serious problem nowadays. Some of these older ladies limbs ain’t as strong as they used to be. Next time you might have to take her whole hand. Or even an arm. Who knows where it’ll end.

I guarantee you, trying to flee with an old ladies arm in tow ain’t cute. Just trust me on this.

    Wow. This is totally gross. It’s inappropriate of older women to leave their fingers everywhere, you know? They need to start getting on those calcium pills.

    Seriously. It’s very inconsiderate of them. What would the world come to if elderly ladies were allowed to leave digits and limbs everywhere? Chaos! Anarchy! That’s what! There needs to be a law…

    If you’re going to take a finger, at least take the whole hand, ya know?

    Seriously, people do such shoddy work these days. I remember back when I was growing up, if someone wanted a piece of you, they really took a piece of you! I’m talkin’ the whole arm, leg, whatever. Not a measly little finger.
    People today just don’t take any pride in their work anymore…
