Local blogger fights crime

Just when I’m starting to think about my own feelings of safety in this city, local blogger Phillybits leaps into the fray in order to help a stranger who was the victim of theft. We need more people like this in Philly, folks who do what they can to help.

It was at this moment that I realized what I was witnessing was a brazen daylight robbery. I didn’t know what this man had stolen but from where I was, it looked like perhaps a piece of electronic equipment. With my backpack strapped to my back, and my bike left unlocked outside the coffee shop, I just took off after this guy. Didn’t think twice about it and just started huffing it as fast as I could after this guy.

Go read the rest of his story, it will give you hope for the future.

    Thanks for the post, Marisa. I just dropped this over at Philly Future as well and I’m hoping people are really paying attention to this. The fact that it happened in broad daylight with people around, albeit a few, is certainly troubling.

    Again, luckily, nobody was hurt but still. My god. It’s getting crazy here.
