Why is anyone hanging out in that park at 2 am anyway? Sorry, PC people, I’ll be more alarmed by this incident if it occurred at 2 pm. The neighborhood is a very safe place, but that doesn’t mean people shouldn’t be stupid and not make themselves targets for crime.

2:10 am

Only two kinds of people in the park at 2 am. Those robbing people, and those getting robbed. If you don’t know which person you are, you are the latter.
