    t4ct, I read this thread earlier and I couldn't stop thinking about it when I was biking back from the store and the sun had gone down.

    Hope you're all right though

    I started reading this thread on my smartphone while wandering the streets of DC by myself. Surprisingly, I haven't been mugged since I've moved down. That story about puke preventing a mugging amused me, since I've felt absolutely horrible all day and did feel like puking at the time, so I figured I had a defense mechanism.

    Really though, I'm super glad that you weren't stabbed tonight. Sucks about the phone and the cash. And to think, I was considering complaining about having to sleep on the floor of my bathroom last night.

    Carrying a gun always seems like a bad idea. I'm sure some of you know exactly how you would react, but I don't think most people can say how they would react if they got mugged, and if you aren't a badass, there is a decent chance that your own gun gets you killed.

    Probably not, but whatever.

    Likely wouldn't be carrying a gun with you going to a bar anyway, since it's illegal (and you're a law-abiding citizen, no doubt), and irresponsible.

    also, never been mugged, but have had a knife pulled on me. Shit sucks, best thing to do is create distance.

    I may have gotten mugged a few weeks ago. I actually don't know - I was in a state my friends refer to as "hurricaning". That is when tidal surges of alcohol take over.
    The only evidence I had that I may have been mugged is that when I woke up the next day my wallet was gone, and I apparently told one friend the night before I was being chased by black guys.

    I'm leaning towards my drunk ass just having dropped the wallet though... and having somehow pissed off the group chasing me; rather than them trying to outright rob me.

    (Right now I'm still in a "I'm never drinking again" phase)

    I got mugged on the train home when I was at an internship in college, every now and they I'll play a Owl Creek/Jacob's Ladder type scenario in my head and I'll have a difficult time sleeping for a few days

    I've never been mugged even though I have lived in some really seedy places and had roommate with me at the time who had been mugged coming and going from our place.

    the first time i ever got really wasted was a massive school-leavers street party, i was in the year below and drinking vodka and ended up passing out on a bench by the beach

    i remember someone coming up to me and saying "someone's going to take your wallet, mate"

    sure enough, when i woke up in the morning i had no wallet

    later in the week i had the genius stroke of calling the local police station to see if it had been handed in. amazingly it had, so i picked it up and my money was still in it and everything. it was about then that i started to remember the guy who had approached me might have been a police officer

    tldr: i got mugged by a cop for my own good

    I've never been mugged... probably because I never go outside.

    That's amazing, considering here you probably would've been in jail for a public intoxication. You know, for your own safety.

    man there weren't enough cells in the state for all the intoxicated minors on that beach that night. it was the last year it happened, the cops and the schools started putting the clampdown on that shit at that particular beach afterwards. i think we even directly contributed to an entire council area losing its favourite new years eve party, because that got cancelled too

    I've never been mugged, nor have I been in a fight.

    I'm a little disappointed.

    If you went up to someone and asked for their phone, no threats or weapons or anything, and they just handed it over, would that be illegal?

    Just like, "Hey, can I have your phone? To keep, not to borrow."

    And if they say no then whatever, it's their phone.

    But if they gave it to you, it was their choice. I mean it's not like you were threatening them or anything.

    Oh. I thought you just meant "hey can I see your phone" and then take off running.

    So uh... no.. if they are aware you are having it forever then it is not illegal. But good luck with that?

    I figure you just walk around at night with a couple pipe & ball bearing based IED's up in your coat, explosive reactive armour style, then if anyone fucks with you, they get shredded like an incoming RPG

    I suppose you could argue it's obtaining goods by deceit.

    [SAFETYNOTICE] Aggressive Solicitation of Money

    Police are investigating an incident in which a female student had a subject get into her car after she left a bar on Monday, January 3. The suspect told the student to take him to an ATM and get him some money. The victim was intimidated enough to comply, even though no weapon was shown, and no overt threat made. After receiving the money, the suspect had the victim drop him off.

    I get these from my university all the time but this is the funniest

    a friend of mine almost got jumped recently near my apartment, but fortunately he saw the set-up happening (two guys were trying to pen him in basically) and broke out. he's a pretty fast guy, so he got away from them.

    this almost happened to me on the way to dragoncon the other night i think.

    She figured the dude would do some unpleasant stuff to her if she didn't do what he said, so she complied without recieving any explicit threats. I agree, I have heard of some funnier shit myself.
