    She said it was no big deal because the BG only got $6.
    Which of course misses the point that the BG could have demanded everything there was (life and limb). Dumb x2.

    This was the same reporter who lost it when someone mentioned guns on her show some months back. She almost had a stroke.

    Her current reaction shows that she cannot be taught.

    She should not have to experience this kind of encounter. But, life is not fair.

    Now, burn (her) once, shame on the BG.
    Burn (her) twice....

    I say light the guy up! Hopefully one of these days one of those scumbags will try that on somebody packing and they will do the gene pool a favor....

    Obviously the $6.00 does not matter to her
    nor the fact that it was taken from her.

    Now here's the bad news.
    She has not learned that if he can take
    that from her ,he can take a lot more,
    and the odds are against her that the
    next time it will be a much harder lesson.
    Odds are it will be very bad.

    Truly a clueless individual she is.

    She may not be that lucky if/when she gets robbed again.

    Wow. So if it's just a small crime, it's ok then? So...let's say I work at a bank and skim $6 out of random accounts, they should all just say 'It's only $6, it's ok'? I could retire early!

    That's essentially what this guy is doing, but in a more dangerous fashion...potentially skimming $6 from random people he runs across. At least using a bank doesn't threaten anyone with harm.

    Anyway, what was she afraid of? He couldn't possibly have had a weapon in Washington D.C. Doesn't anyone holding one there magically vanish in a puff of smoke or something?

    Depends on what the definition of "mugging" is. The reports I read indicate she was approached by a panhandler asking for money. No weapon displayed, no threat of violence. She apparently just forked the money over and the guy left.

    True. I checked a few different sources. Some state that she claimed he said something along the lines of 'Give me $20 and nothing will happen' (which one might also conclude if NOT given $20, nothing also might happen), while another claimed it was 'Give me $20 and no one will get hurt'.

    Reminds me of an incident where this HUGE guy (looked like a football linebacker) would walk down the street telling everyone, "Yo, gimme a dollar." No threat, but a lot of people would see him looming over them and just hand over the cash.
