IT'S GONNA BE A ROUGH SUMMER: GRANDVIEW LADY SUFFERS GUNFIRE DURING PURSE SNATCHER ROBBERY!!!
A story from the morning news cycle deserves further examination.
It happened at the Prairie Estates apartments, a low-income community that serves older folks.
Relatives tell FOX4 two sisters stop at Prairie Estates every morning to visit their elderly mother before they both head off to work.
Police said at about 4 a.m. Tuesday, as the first sister arrived at her mother's home, four men confronted her and demanded her purse. There was a brief struggle and a relative says one of the robbers shot the woman four times, including once in the face.
This all happened in the doorway of the mother's home.
As the suspects sped away in a dark colored car, the victim's elderly mother, who uses a walker to get around, struggled to help her wounded daughter and call for help.

The upshot . . .
THIS BRUTAL ATTACK AGAINST AND OLDER LADY HAS SPARKED OUTRAGE AND FEAR AMONG LOCAL MEDIA AND NEIGHBORS ALIKE GIVEN THE WORSENING LEVEL OF VIOLENCE THROUGHOUT THE METRO!!!
Our blog community seyz that John Pepitone has the best coverage of this horrific crime that has left locals in fear of early morning danger.
The reality is that the crime doesn't make sense given that most old ladies have only hard candy, 3 bucks and a iPhone 5 in their purses -- All of which have a street value of less than 20 bucks.
Accordingly, horrific crime deserves a closer look if only to confirm fear or worsening violence throughout the metro as the Summer begins.
