    With a photo like that they will catch him quickly. Thugs like this are such repeat offenders that the police know who they are and where they live and hang out.

    It is hard to get convictions, though.

    Woman was probably walking home from work where she earns money to pay taxes that have probably paid for his food and housing. I guess he wanted her phone too.

    I had several packages stolen off my porch last week in that neighborhood. I found the empty Amazon box down the street.

    I love that – #you’redumb! Hilarious. So happy for the victim that the suspect turned himself in.

      Both hilarious and bewildering that people say “hashtag” in conversation. Yes, I am now officially old.

        Same here. And I don’t know if WJLA interviewed the victim on the phone or online, but they — or she — transcribed it as “#yourdumb.” #youneedtolearnpunctuation

          WJLA interviewed the victim in person but didn’t feature her face in the video. She actually said it out loud…. so, yea …
