The country is already experiencing enough upheaval without this kind of shocking crime happening.

A 95-year-old woman in Memphis was knocked down to the ground outside of a mall and dragged between six and seven feet by a thief who made off with her purse. The incident took place Monday and offered little chance for the woman to even have a chance to defend herself.

The bandit fled in a car, while the woman was taken to a hospital. She is non-critical condition, although she does have multiple injuries.

Police continue to investigate.
