Four Time Women's National Karate Champion Mangles Mugger

 

Rome: A would-be thief has been charged with assault after coming off second-best while attempting to rob Lara Liotta, a prison officer and four time Italian women's karate champion.

The mugger asked for cigarette and when the 29-year-old said she didn't have one to give he seized her by the neck. Liotta responded with two punishing blows to the head which left her attacker on the ground.

The mugger had not recovered sufficiently to flee before Liotta arrived back from a nearby train station with police. She expressed disappointment that none of the many passers by stopped or tried to help her.

I believe she was champion in the under 55kg class. I get great satisfaction out of reporting these type of stories.

reminds me of the time in England when a carjacker met a car of 4 martial arts champs I think it was judo, karate,nijutsu and one other. If I remember he begged the police to arrest him

She would have made that mugger feel guilty about owning testicles.

Not sure if that is before or after removing them.

  From that as  
 

"She expressed disappointment that none of the many passers by stopped or tried to help he"

I think this may be because the passers by took it as privat matter between two persons.

I am afraid you are mistaken my friend. In most so called western countries people tend to not interfere with these sort of things. Going even so far not helping a person when he is getting killed. Being killed by someone else or by circumstanses. Drowning for instance.

It is a sad case of affairs that we live in a part of the world where noone hardly ever helps another person when they are in trouble on the street.

  Ya I think

  You are really  
 
having a bad day when you try to mug someone who turns out to be a karate champ and prison guard. I wonder if he'll go to her prison?
