Cause somebody will pull out a gun and steal it from you.
Let’s check the story from Ann Mannix, SFPD Captain of Northern Station:
“Yesterday a guy was waiting for the bus at Haight and Webster (4:15 PM) looking at his phone not paying attention to his surroundings when someone walked right up on him, pointed a gun and stole his iPhone 4.
I bet if he was aware of his surroundings the criminal wouldn’t have targeted him.
Conceal your valuables and be aware of your surroundings, always!”
Apparently, this isn’t a good place to try to hold onto your cellie.
Lower Haight is For Lovers…
…and armed cell phone thieves.
