Two teenagers and a 12-year-old were mugged this month during the afternoon. None of the youths, all boys, tried to resist. Even if they were to try, chances are they would’ve lost.
What’s troubling is that these muggers are almost certainly the same ones that have been on a spree lately, harassing, scaring and harming people in Clinton Hill for some time now. They’re still at large, even though the NYPD’s 88th precinct only has a couple of square miles to patrol. Especially reprehensible is police allowing muggers who also terrorize youths to remain on the streets for so long.
