This isn't the post that I intended to write. Longtime readers may remember that about a year ago, October 2011, my Dad was mugged by a group of teens less than a block from our house. Tonight, a group of teens mugged another person less than a block from our house again. Same M.O., same place.
Of course people here are freaking out. My Dad went to the casino tonight, most of the people who are here regularly are gone. My Sister just made a tearful call to my other Sister, telling her to find my Dad and rush home. The attack was an hour and a half ago.
Everyone is fine, the police are randomly driving around since it took them forty minutes to get here in the first place. Never a better time than after the fact to run around like chickens without heads.
