This shouldn’t be a hard problem to fix

Queens and Jane. 3 in the afternoon. School’s out. Give you one guess what happened?

Two 14-year-old boys were mugged by a group of three young men, between 19 and 22 years old. The suspects beat the kids up before stealing their phones and fleeing.

The other day while in a community pool, I overheard two teenage boys discussing cell phones. They were discussing buying a new phone from a young man they know who has all kinds of Blackberrys and iPhones for sale. They had, they marvelled to each other, no idea where those phone all come from.

This is the fifth mugging at that time in that place with that MO this year.

  1. Where oh where are our police, our councillor and all the fancy equipment and salaries when we need them?

    Well, we know.

  2. It’s simply absurd that this continues! 5 muggings, same spot, similar times, in broad daylight at a fairly busy intersection? Sure, posting police in the area would be costly, but short of forming a group of vigilante’s to handle things, it’s really the only choice!

    I don’t think we should wait for a kid to resist being mugged and get shot or severely injured before anyone finally takes action.

  3. Jane st crime has been happening for years. I remember going to school 20 years ago they been talking about Jane & Falstatff, Lawrence, Trethewey back then. It has a reputation. When the cop got killed 20 years ago on Trethewey they did a clean up of the apartments there but nothing much since then. Wonder if couple of murders will finally wake up 12 div. They should be some foot patrols etc.. heck we paying enough for the police already.
