She had a weapon..." Sex appeal" A young blonde, 5'7" tall, and weighing only 120 pounds.

WOW...but no real weapon seen...the cab driver wouldn't last 2 minutes in Oakland or 2 seconds in New York.

He must have been a real wimp.

Thank for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo

"He must have been a real wimp"....

Scarily, there is a part of me that could agree with Julia.

But who is to say that the robber didn't, for example, ask if the driver could break a $100 to pay a $20 fare then grab and take off with the $80 change.

For that matter, we don't know that the driver wasn't a 5' 1" and 110 lb FEMALE.
