    I got a kick out of how the story is written in such a way that it seems it could have taken a half-hour or more for the suspects to approach the victim.

    It is irresponsible to conclude, as Mission Local did in their twitter stream, that “Walking around the Mission at 2:30am might not be that good of an idea.” One crime does not make an entire neighborhood unsafe. Unless this type of crime happens all over the neighborhood at 2:30 am every night, to draw such a conclusion is alarmist and detrimental to this neighborhood.

      Well with a shooting Sunday morning at 2:30 am at 18th and Capp and this robbery at 2:30 am like a day later, and all the other violence last week, I’m not gonna be walking around my neighborhood at this hour any time soon.

    How do they know the ages of the suspects if they don’t know who they are?
