Video: Purse-snatcher drags stubborn woman across Miami parking lot

Surveillance footage caught a woman in Miami Beach doing something Thursday that victims of violent crimes are told never to do — she fought back against her attacker.

But it worked out OK for her in the end.

The clip depicts the woman clutching onto her handbag as a purse-snatcher throws her to the ground and drags her across the parking lot pavement.

The attack only came to a close when a Good Samaritan showed up, scaring the would-be thief away.

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren showed the footage “On the Record” Thursday in hopes someone will recognize the woman’s attacker and notify authorities.

    I hate this idea. Instead of teaching people to defend themselves, we teach them to be passive and submissive to criminals. That is the worst attitude to have. Instead of telling people they are victims, we should empower people to take self defense classes, or carry a weapon to fight back. You shouldn’t have to rely on the cops to protect you. You should be able to protect yourself. Stop listening to those who want to hold you down. Stop thinking you are weak and not capable of fighting back. Stand up for yourself and if somebody tries to hurt you, or steal from you, show them why it was a bad idea.

    This is sad.. I recently heard of a Kickstarter campaign that is creating an APP that will PREVENT this sort of thing. One of three U-AIDE founders had a incident such as this happen to his mother, and was a huge inspirational force behind their Kickstarter campaign ( https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/492910458/u-aide-app ).

    I BACKED THEM $42!! So far…
