The fashion in crime now. This shocking behavior results in many seniors staying home, in “lockdown” due to fear, when, ironically, the sick, nasty and demented criminal is free.


I was a victim of Elder abuse myself in early 2016, when 2 teens in Marshalls each shoved me very hard, purposely and separately, then ran away laughing. The boy was very tall, the girl short. At the time I was using a cane, after an injury, which was in my shopping cart, which I was leaning on. I wasn’t hurt at all, but shocked- and saddened by the stupid mean things teens can do on a dare. It’s rare, but people do need to be aware of their surroundings and what can happen. I consider the posting above to be a public service.

These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
