  1. Who walks around the streets carrying a folding table? Just bought it at Macy’s and wanted to give it a try out.

    1. T, what I have discovered over the years is there’s usually more to these stories than what is reported. Regardless, their needs to be more surveillance cameras in the neighborhood considering all the foot traffic and the drunks who end up here for whatever reason.

      1. Yes, that’s exactly what I was thinking. Folding table makes an odd weapon and not something that one would normally carry around when planning an attack. Wonder how the police categorize this, assault with deadly furniture?

  2. Technically 12:39am on a Monday – but really it was late (after midnight) Sunday night. When trash is out. I’m sure someone used curbside trash as a weapon. Sad to say I’ve seen that done before.
