Via, referencing this news story from DNAinfo about how the NY/NJ bombers were thwarted by thieves who pounced on the unattended bags. This piece of news will leave you with a very “well, huh!” feeling about living in New York while the rest of the country panics that we’re under attack from ISIS. This city may at times be a cesspool of thieves, con artists and villainy. But it’s our cesspool. Crime isn’t good, but no real New Yorker would leave their bag unattended anywhere, for exactly this reason.
As a law enforcement source told DNAinfo: “Who in this world finds a pressure cooker with a phone and just takes the bag?”
Be careful out there and be good to each other, however you process your feelings of safety and vigilance. Life goes on in New York, for now.
New York fears ranked
