  1. Wow, what is going on?
    One thing to keep in mind…when you are walking down the street texting/on your phone, totally absent from the world around you, you are a walking target. A target that: 1. has no idea that anyone is around them. 2. Doesn’t have a clue what the criminal looks like because you never saw them.

    Taking your face/eyes off of your phone screen and learning what urban “street smart” is may benefit you.

    As long as everyone is distracted and not paying attention these crime results will only get longer. Today’s urban dweller has made street crimes so easy for the criminals.
