Police are hunting an armed robber aged up to 70 years old who held up a post office in Manchester.
The woman, believed to be aged between 65 and 70, entered the shop on Palatine Road in Northenden, on Thursday morning.

She was armed with a knife and threatened the cashier demanding money.

Staff activated the alarm and the woman fled empty handed. She is described as white, about 5ft 2in tall, with dark hair and a purple coat.

maybe she has to do it as it's part of her 100 things to do before she die.

Maybe they messed about with her pension??

I wonder if she had a buggy waiting outside for her as she fled, perhaps a getaway driver? LOL

I actually feel sorry for her. When you live in a society that wants you to spend spend spend and at the same time give you very little to live on, then pound you with taxes and fees of every kind, what can you expect?

I don't know how uk is but US is debt based society, everyone lives from paycheck to paycheck and your average American is in debt up to their eyeballs.

I wonder why she did it.

We shouldn't be so quick to judge, you know....

Not that I'm saying what she did was acceptable...it wasn't.

But we don't know the circumstances that could have led her to make this decision.

Maybe it's our pity that she deserves more than anything. Maybe.

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that anyone did judge her.

Just saying that we shouldn't, y'know.

Sorry, my bad!
