Crime has skyrocketed in most parts of America, especially in areas that are under Democrat control. 

Criminals prefer to target society’s most vulnerable people, which causes many law-abiding Americans to live in a constant state of fear. 

And now senior citizens are on high alert after this brutal mugging ensued.

This vicious attack proves that nobody is safe in the Big Apple these days

Following the death of George Floyd in 2020, crime exploded all across the nation, especially in America’s urban centers. 

New York City has seen a particularly dramatic surge in crime, with new reports of brutal and horrific attacks making headlines every day. 

Last Thursday, a particularly brutal attack made national headlines after a 16-year-old assaulted a grandmother as she left church.
“A 16-year-old suspect accused of shoving a grandmother down a flight of church steps and rummaging through her purse was arrested Thursday, the NYPD said,” Fox News reported. “The victim, who was identified by her family as 68-year-old Irene Tahliambouris, was pushed so hard that she went airborne and landed flat on her back, security video shows.” 

“She suffered a fractured skull and a black eye, according to her family, and as she writhed in pain, the suspect allegedly stole $300, her cellphone and her car before fleeing the scene outside St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Queens, New York, on Sunday,” Fox News added.

The family has since released a statement on this appalling crime.

“We are devastated to even imagine the pain she is experiencing after being knocked off the stairs of the church, hitting the back of her head on the concrete while this vicious person, with no consideration for life, attacked her and took all her belongings and her car,” they wrote. “Criminals feel comfortable doing things to helpless people because the laws in our state do not hold them accountable.  The recidivism rate of criminal felonies is high, yet the state refuses to change laws to remand them to jail or charge them to the fullest extent of the law.” 

Her family then took aim at lawmakers by adding that “we are seeing an increase in petty crimes that are no longer able to be prosecuted, and those people are going on to commit violent crimes, yet Albany and NYC refuse to make the necessary changes to the law to ensure these criminals are held accountable.”

Many Americans have become fed up with America’s crime problem

As millions of Americans do their best to make ends meet in Joe Biden’s poor economy, more people than ever have turned to a life of crime. 

The shocking assault and robbery of 68-year-old Irene Tahliambouris demonstrates that criminals will target anyone for some quick cash, even a helpless grandmother leaving church. 

Unfortunately, lawmakers in the Big Apple do not appear ready to make any significant changes to improve the crime surge that plagues New York City.
