Badass Woman Wears Down Robber in Footchase, Pays to Get Her Phone Back

Women are just badass. Period.
This is what happens when the person robbing you is out of shape.

Last week, a woman was riding the 38-Geary line through the Richmond District when another woman grabbed her phone out of her hand and ran off the bus as it was stopped at Geary Boulevard and Van Ness.

According to police, the victim chased after the suspect, who at one point told her to stop chasing her otherwise she would bust out her pepper spray. The audacious woman didn't flinch at this threat, and continued running after the robber, pleading for her phone back.


The victim ran after the robber for more than 10 blocks, obviously tiring out the suspect, who finally stopped at Post and Broderick streets. There, the victim offered the suspect cash for her phone.

The suspect demanded $40, but the victim said she didn't have that much money on her. So the robber ordered her to go to the nearest ATM to get the $40, but the victim explained she didn't have her debit card on her either.

Finally, the robber, seeing it wasn't her day, settled for whatever cash she had in her wallet. She gave the phone back to the victim and ran west on Post Street. The suspect was described as a black female, between 20 and 25 years old. She was roughly 5-foot-8, weighing 180 pounds, wearing a gray zip-up hooded sweatshirt, and probably out of breath.

lol funny but I wouldn't have given her a dime and I would have had her on the floor. Teach her that crime does NOT pay.

Crap story with a misleading title.

First, it was a woman chasing another woman. Big deal. Second, once the thief stopped, the victim offered to pay the thief to return her own property, instead of kicking in her knees and taking it.

There is nothing bad ass about casually jogging behind some out-of-shape thieving twat until she's too tired to go on, and then offering said twat money to return the property the twat stole in the first place. In fact, that's the opposite of bad ass.

Seriously! The twat would have gotten nothing from me but a swift kick in her crotch. No balls? Trust me...I would make it hurt.

Well, luckily for this woman, she was able to catch up with the phone thief and get her phone back. Generally, though, I'm not sure a cell phone is worth the risk of one's safety. Especially if you're dealing with someone who has no respect for other people.

 Well, considering the thieving bitch was running away and not looking behind her much, had it been me, I'd have just pushed the bitch into oncoming traffic. Good riddance.

If she chased me and caught me {WHICH SHE WOULDN'T} but if she did i would punch her in her stupid cunt face and bust out a few teeth and break her nose and jaw.  that would teach her dumb cunt ass to never mess with a bad motherfucker like me. its not a good idea for weak cunt females to mess with a stronger meaner man.

Great story, but there is an epidemic of smartphone thefts—all due to the fact that AT&T and others are making money off of it. For every stolen phone, they gain a new customer. Each phone has a unique identifier that could prevent them from being used once stolen, but where is the incentive for the corporations involved to do this. 

There is currently a class-action lawsuit accusing them of aiding and abetting smartphone thieves, which is essentially what it is. http://j[dot]mp/LfTrQB
