Wow what a badass! Thanks for sharing. I particularly liked this part: "And the four Rochester police officers who showed up at her door just as she was delivering her final blows with the broom they asked to take selfies with her."

He sure picked the wrong old lady to rob! She's outstanding!

Our local post office was run by a diminutive but feisty Chinese lady.  I have a terrible passport photo because just as she was about to take the photo she suddenly pointed her finger at me and growled "You No Smile!" I froze in shock and the photo captured it perfectly. I was too intimidated to ask her to take another.   Some months later some dude tried to rob the post office at gunpoint. She threw her chair over the counter at him and chased him out.

She's my new hero!  There's a video of her at this site:  https://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/news/2019/11/25/82-year-old-female-bodybuilder-willie-murphy-fights-intruder-during-robbery/4297597002/

Shows her bench pressing and doing one-arm and triangle pushups.  She can deadlift twice her weight in competition.  Amazing.  Inspirational.
