Because, of course, Chicago.
Shortly before 3 o'clock Monday afternoon, two men attacked and robbed another man as he walked down a Bucktown alley. It was caught on video.

I always keep an ear out for running.
It’s one of those habits I developed, but the sound of someone running up behind me sets off every alarm bell I’m my body.
Get tackled from behind once (school bullying incident) and your brain never forgets it.
And be armed. Yes, a gun is probably optimal, but many people don’t want that, and there are places where that’s still not an option, so at a very minimum, pepper spray.
Shit is getting wild out there, stay safe.
