To #1- Don't be so naive; there was a Jewish couple from NJ (owners of a restaurant), who were leaving the theater in Manhattan some months ago, after celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary. They were attacked by a large hoodlum, who had an arrest record of nearly 40 arrests for assault, robbery, and other sordid offenses. What was that two legged animal with forty arrests doing out on the street, to prey on innocent law abiding civilians? If someone thinks that the streets in NYC are safe, they are delusional!
