    Catch her immediately and give her a Desk Appearance Ticket so that she would never do this again and we can all be Safe.

    another BLM member – surely she didn’t mean to do this – she must have tripped and knocked him over and then by mistake found her hand in his pocket -this is the type of citizen that lives in NYC – find her and send her to prison for being a POS
