Don't steal a purse in Texas!

Postby Madison » Fri Sep 11, 2009 5:59 pm

Baaaahahahahaha. :-b I love our state. Other people would be calling for this lady's head, but we here in Texas love to see criminals get punished for their crimes.

A Fort Worth purse-snatcher whose crime made national headlines after his victim chased him down and hit him with her car was sentenced Thursday to 30 years in prison.

On March 1, Sample grabbed Renfro’s purse on the parking lot of an office supply store in East Fort Worth. She jumped in her car, gave chase, grabbed a cell phone she carried in her bra and called 911.

“Someone just grabbed my purse,” an angry Renfro told the police operator. “I’m going to chase him down.”

Her confrontation with the man was recorded in the 911 call. Listen to Renfro's 911 call here.

"Where’s my purse?" she yelled. "You give it to me now. I got the police on the phone right now. You give me my purse."

Sample tried to get away, she said, so she struck him with her car, knocking him into the air. He was not seriously injured.

They might have added a couple of years for denting the hood of her car. :-D

Vigilantes are cool.
Especially when they are old and violent.
And have weapons.
It's even funnier when they get the wrong guy. :-B

The robbery charge against Sample was enhanced because Renfro, 65, was considered “elderly” and also because of his long criminal record, including convictions for burglary, theft and drug possession.


don't see the problem there, sounds like he had plenty of chances.
