  1. @lkwddet is 100% right. Theresa FIND ME setting on Apple products and you track them within 5 feet in 2 seconds. Brilliant perps will now have an Armed Robbery charge on their record their whole life. For a $399 iPad.

  2. To Miss Anonie

    If this was a Muslim blog for the Muslim community ,it would definitely say that it was a Muslim man.

    Since I assume that the owners of this blog and 98 or 99 per cent of its readers are frum people, it’s just an interesting way to note that the victim was someone in that community whom many of the readers may know . Nothing sinister or racist about that.

  3. Another point on writing that he is frum:

    Much of the crime in our town comes from people who live in affordable housing communities & 90% of the time, their crime is against their friends & other members of their community. It becomes newsworthy when their crimes spill over to other communities nearby.

    (btw – it’s not different than writing that the victim was Latino male etc. which is done all the time)
