    Duh : Walk Through This 'Hood & Not Get Robbed?

    This area is a bad part of my hometown. Lots of drug dealers, prostitutes, thugs and that sort. Not the kind of place to be walking alone and unarmed. One comment on the page said "At least the brothers gave an honest answer."

    Police blotter: Woman reports being robbed at gunpoint on Artisan Avenue
    June 09, 2010 @ 12:00 AM

    CHRISTIAN ALEXANDERSEN

    The Herald-Dispatch

    Huntington, WV

    The following information was provided by the Huntington Police Department:

    A 19-year-old woman walking in the 1800 block of Artisan Avenue reported being robbed at gunpoint by two unknown males on Monday.

    The victim said she was walking when two black men approached her and brandished a semi-automatic firearm and told her to empty her purse. The victim asked the two if they were kidding and one responded "Did you think you could walk through this neighborhood and not get robbed?"

    The victim said they stole $800 in cash, a digital camera and a cell phone. Stolen items totaled $1,180.

    One suspect is described as a black male, between 16- and 19-years-old, about 5-feet-10-inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. The other suspect is described as a black male between 16- and 19-years-old, about 6-feet tall and weighing 140 pounds.

    The first question that came to my mind is what's she doing with all that 'stuff' and money in that neighborhood without an 'escort'??

    That was an 'expensive' lesson learned......thank goodness those thug-lets didn't shoot her.

    An 18 yr old with $800 in cash in pocket just walking around?
    Hell, if my wife let me have that much cash, I still wouldn't walk around with it, armed or not, neighborhood or not. Where'd she get it and what did she go into a notorious "hood" with it for, hmmmm?

    Stupid on her part, but at least she wasn't shot.

    Things that don't add up:

    1: A 19 yo with $800 in cash
    2: Walking in a bad neighborhood alone

    She was probably looking to buy drugs.

    Happy she was not hurt!

    Now, if I had that much cash on me, I'd walk straight to the gun store and pick out something nice!

    Did you just walk around with it in your wallet?

    In bad neighborhoods? Dressed like a girl?

    That's a WHOLE lot of drugs.

    If you're going to buy that much drugs in cash, you're probably looking to sell it. I'm thinking that's not the case with her.


    Maybe she was going to buy a car. ;)

    I wonder why no time of day was listed in the article.

    That would make the most sense to me.
    Then again, maybe she was a good girl going to pay granny's bills or something.

    I don't know the area, but there are places that some people should avoid if at all possible. Its hard for me to say "she asked for trouble" but I know of places that if you go there well your just asking for trouble.
