Seen this a few other times & places. Doesn't say much for American society in the new millennium.

A few years ago, I was reading a bike magazine, the article I remember was from the thief's point of view; once, the thief referred to himself as being called "Dreddy Merckx", because of his 'specialty', and his blond dreadlocks. Just mention it in passing.....

Hey John Quinones, what do the statistics say? I hate his show, nothing but exaggerated scenarios that intimidate most observers/bystanders.

I make it a point to never help anyone in need, just in case they are faking it for a hidden camera show.
