Thanks to the folks in blue, but also ... the victim was followed all the way from Jackson to Sunnyside, and then assaulted and robbed in the middle of the day? Wow.

Robust economy for kids who want a part time job right now. You'll meet people, learn responsibility, and make more money than robbing pockets and having to spit it among your peers if you don't get arrested. And for the ones too young to work, get your ass to an after school program or youth center. No room for sob stories. There are people and programs available to you if you have a hard life to make it easier and happier.
