It will be news. Expect CNN to start reporting about robberies of iPhones, pads, and pods from innocents in broad daylight. Could even be a whole series of reports.

I am not exactly pulling for the robbers, but it might be a bit of poetic justice.

In this case since she is a media creature a simple stealing of her cell phone will not convert her as she can give a Marxist interpretation to the theft. This one, in order to convert, would need 4 to five vicious beatings each followed by a gang rape. Even then she may excuse such behavior.

So, a warning for you. Do not talk on your IPhone as you walk down the street. Oh, and let go of the stupid device if someone tries to steal it.

Never mind holding on to the phone, this behavior will continue until people start getting capped in the a$$ trying it.

Because in Atlanta, Piedmont Avenue is the last street where no iPhone has ever been stolen. Now that avenue is tainted.

OTOH

"Police are investigating after a CNN anchor says she was robbed of her iPhone in midtown.

Maybe Carol Costello lied and the police are investigating her false accusation.

I wonder what kind of juicy photos or messages are on her iPhone. iPhones are replaceable, photos are not. ROFL.

What we need is a Cell Phone/I Pad with a built in gun.

Everyone laughed at C Gould when Dick Tracy had his ‘wristwatch phone’ back in the 40’s and 50’s...

Though I did ‘prefer’ Fearless Fosdick.

Obviously not the criminal's fault. Must be the anchor's fault. No, wait, event better... Let's apply gun-control logic to this:

Must be the iPhone's fault. Ban iPhones, or make law abiding citizens register them and have a permit for them... Limit their address books to 10 contacts... Yeah, that'll stop phone-crime!

LOL, right near my old place of business, and home.

This is right by Piedmont Park, in the "nice" part of Midtown.

And yes, if this had been you or me, it wouldn't have made the news.

The amount of violent crime in that neighborhood that I heard about from friends, employees and customers, that DIDN'T make the news, was shocking.

And hearing about that crime, and my experiences with ATL cops, is why I am now a gun nut.

"A conservative is a liberal, who's been mugged."

You are making the assumption that a "progressive" is bright enough to solve the equation A+B=C. In this fuzzy little propagandist's dim world view, it is some Right Wing Christian's fault that she was robbed.

Lots of robberies in the better parts of Atlanta recently. The city of Decatur near Atlanta had very little crime until now. This area is definitely not “the ‘hood”, very upscale.
